Default Premier Ice Hockey League gone?

So it looks like the Premier Ice Hockey League - formerly the EPL - has gone before it's started. Swindon Wildcats are making an application to join the National Ice Hockey League on the advice of the EIHA chairman, Ken Taggart. Looking like Planet Ice had little choice but to move Lightning up to the Elite League if they want to take the club forward. I guess other EPL clubs will have to follow suit and either go Elite or NIHL. Methinks there's a lot more changes afoot this summer - maybe even leading to the long needed unification of the league structures.

They might have applied...doesn't mean the NIHL will accept them!

Hull Pirates have also confirmed that they've applied for NIHL following an email on Sunday from Ken Taggart.

Hull have seemingly hinted at an application for the EIHL too.

Well done Wayne Scholes...

Us leaving probably helped trigger this. It will be interesting to see how the league's look next season.

I think Manchester going under and Telford being pretty much insolvent had more to do with it. Guildford and MK are just the straws that meant the rest of the league is unsustainable.

We weren't the cause of this, we jumped before being pushed.

Potty have also applied to the NIHL. I guess KT has told the PIHL clubs that the EIHA won't back the new league. End of.

We've now gone from a 3 league system to two. Maybe having only two organisations might result in more cooperation, but somehow I very much doubt it.
