Think this sums up state of play and the chaos!

Smile Re: Premier Ice Hockey League gone?

So it seems that most of the remainder of last season's EPL teams have announced that they have applied to join the NIHL - with one exception...Telford Tigers. No news on their intentions as yet, it appears. Wouldn't it be funny if they applied to the NIHL or the Elite League and were turned down by the former because of their financial irregularities and the latter because their rink was not considered suitable? Just being mischievous, but can't resist the prospect of poetic justice for ruining the EPL.

Think of the potential Thunder team next season though...

There'll probably be quite a few MK-based Brits becoming available over the summer months.

If Thunder could put together a decent team with a few familiar faces from the EPL Lightning team, I can imagine a quite a few supporters could follow the players to the NIHL.

If I was buying a franchise I would make sure that isn't a remote possibility.

I've heard a rumour along these lines. No Thunder for next year, or at least no Thunder with ex-EPLers.

Makes me think there's not quite as much faith in MKL succeeding in the Elite league if the powers that be are already scared of losing fans.

Assuming that all the EPIHL teams get accepted by the NIHL, I guess there's no guarantee that Thunder would remain in NIHL1 next season. Would the players even want to drop down to that level if it's NIHL2?

Doug Clarkson is spot on in his open letter, and anyone with an IQ greater than a grapefruit can see it. Unfortunately once the league structure is sorted out for next season, we'll be having these discussions again in 10-15 years time when the next cycle comes around.

It does make you wonder if MKL are waiting to see what happens with the league structures before any player announcements are made. Are they contemplating a massive u-turn in their plans? They've said they're commited to the Elite League, but with all the concerns about the Scottish teams, you can't blame them for holding off and seeing what happens and then act accordingly.

What a joke!
