seems to be an uptick in the fights in the EIHL and the leagues under it in the uk.the rest of the hockey is on par with the ECHL but is there were we can expect the fourth liners to end up?Cam Janssen had a pretty decent season this year it seems and earned a contract extension
LNAH will always be the best as far as number of fights and entertainment value, better fighters with more NHL experience may start to head to the UK, shorter schedule, better pay and fewer fights than the LNAH.
LNAH will still get it's lower minor guys from the FHL, SPHL and some ECHL and AHL guys mixed in.
I wish I could watch both leagues, I only get to a couple Laval games a year. Both leagues provide a more entertaining product than Bettmans NHL.
Even some teams in the ECHL do not employ enforcers (which is preposterous). League would not stay afloat on the skill alone. There are enforcers who are superior in many facets compared to some of the players who sign tryout contracts coming out of the SPHL.
The semi-professional leagues in Quebec still own the title for being the most belligerent. Would very much like to see an EIHL game live. The atmosphere of the crowd along with recognizing players would fascinate me.
