If you read it there are guys who have actually played in the league saying you have to pay for both playing and accommodation. Trust me the Europeans do pay I know this for a fact, I know British players who have played in this league.

Nothing against you but it's just hearsay.

You tell me they pay but you can't tell me what they're paying for, how much, etc.

I usually don't believe until I see it

If you don't want to believe it then fine, not sure why we're even arguing about an irrelevant league with irrelevant British players

You just keep pushing your hearsay there's no real argument...

But that irrelevant league spit out an irrelevant British player named Craig Peacock so that's why we're talking about it.

Peacock is an anomaly.

He's not the first Brit in the Danish league, David Phillips played a few games there for SønderjyskE

Not to knock Phillips but when I watch him with GB I wonder how the hell he was in the AHL and a guy like O'Connor hasn't (granted he could have had an offer and said no)

With that said, I don't want them going to the AHL because they won't be available for the World Championships which is insanely annoying. Like Robert Farmer going to the ECHL means GB will lose their best forward from the last WC tourney

Everyone else seems to say the same thing, politics I guess. I also wish O'Connor would go to a better league as he doesn't really seem to have to push himself in Kazakhstan.

Ahhhh, I figured that he'd either have to have dual or his family would've been here long enough to get landed immigrant status to be eligible to play CJHL

Curious to see how he produces in the EIHL this season. Something tells me he'll be like Danny Wood last season and be better off in EPL

Panthers have a much better track record with young Brits than Sheffield, I think he'll be alright. Can always loan him to the Lions or Phantoms if he needs the experience.

Looks like he's put up better numbers in college than Wood though

Not be 'that guy' but.... It's NCAA III. Some of the top players in NCAA III won't even be looked at for the CHL let alone the ECHL.

Might sound silly because I'm all about Brits in the EIHL but I don't like that they throw him directly into EIHL rather than giving him at least a year in EPIHL to see what he's actually capable of in the GB pro game.

Based off what I've seen of him via twitter he seems like a good guy and definitely motivated so I wish him all the best, I just don't like the potential of him being thrown into a situation he might not be ready for and crushing that motivation/attitude.

Neilson's had him in his prospects camp (he's send Nottingham's best junior players out to Canada to develop and scout them for three years now) so he's been on Panthers' radar a while. I expect they're well aware of what he can and can't do.

You're a bit late to the party, this was already discussed

Let me guess, are all the idiots on the island over-hyping it? The GMHL is a terrible league and he's not even that good anyway. Do you know if he's actually going to go play there?

JJ Pitchley returning from abroad to play for London (Romford) Raiders, on a two-way with Slough Jets

Looked like he did quite well in NA, same league as Bobby Chamberlain and more points. He was always a good player, saw him a few times playing juniors for Bracknell
