Default Guilford Flames request to join Elite League

So it looks like Guilford Flames have put in a request to join Elite League for 2017 / 2018! With MK Lightning already moving, What do you think this means for the EPIHL?

Hopefully the EPL will become a development league for British players.

The most likely candidates say they do not want to with a 5 import limit if dropped to three may happen.

If the complete league restructure being mooting about by Richard Grieveson doesn't occur next season, I envisage an 8 team league with MKL & Guildford moving up to Elite & Manchester Phoenix folding. That would leave Phantoms, Hull, Swindon, Sheffield Steeldogs, Bracknell, Telford, Basingstoke + A.N Other team playing out of a Planet Ice/Silverblades rink. Whether that be a current NIHL team (Blackburn Hawks, Widnes Wild or Altrincham Aces spring to mind) or some new incarnation of a team I don't know. This theory could of course be completely blown out of the water if Bracknell's financial position cannot be maintained or if the rumours about the financial stability of another unnamed EPL team (whispered to be Steeldogs but who actually knows) are true.
