Just reading down through this post for the first time. I have to say it does look interesting. A league with checking and possibly fighting. Sounds like good entertainment to me. For a better gate price and I still get my fries. Personally, this may be the way of the future. Even diehards like me are agreeing that this is likely the last year for CWSHL. I bet everybody will be keeping a close eye on this one. Best of luck!

I agree with you 100%. I would still support a league of this capacity if that's what the Cataracts end up as. I hope this league gets off the ground and is very successful, the smaller towns & towns that haven't had senior hockey in years will take full advantage of this, the fans of the CWSHL don't realize how luck they are to have high caliber hockey to watch, and when it's gone I would expect you will see the true hockey fans out to support a league of less caliber.

Players that have signed cards with CWSHL teams are ineligible to play in this setup. So for the people that have heard the rumours of the aforementioned names, they are all false, including Darren as far as I know. Let's just see who comes out to the practices and for those of you thinking this is the old DL-CB slugfest days you are wrong. It will be a lot younger, faster, just as skilled or more in some regard and maybe with some familiar faces or from the past and a lot of new ones to senior hockey. Give it a chance for the short term, don't compare it to the CWSHL or the AESHL, it is an opportunity for players to play in their home towns that have not had a chance to play. This is a chance for communities that have not had any senior hockey for a while to get a taste of what may be happening in the fall. Don't assume it's terrible, and don't assume it is the Quebec Senior League, because the players are still playing the game for fun and competition and we can't lose sight of the goal, to get senior hockey back into the communities that have lost it. See you at the rink on Saturday at 5 and good luck to the other centres on putting an entertaining team on the ice.

This league will eventually evolve into the same type of set up we have seen over the past 15 years.

There a lot of triple A players from a few years ago with no where to play. IMO there will be a lot of young players that can get a game of hockey. Best of luck.

Brad Wall and Lee Smith couple goalies at DL tryout. Also Ryan Penny and Guy Langdon. Should be half decent hockey.

Unless there was a tryout since the last one, January 17th(which I attended, and was told the next is tonight. Lee Smith and Ryan Penny were not on the ice. Nor was Guy but has intentions to play. Curtis Coffin was also on the ice. Lee as far as I know is not playing this year. Penny wasn't mentioned.

Average age for the Deer Lake team was say 24-25. Few kids 20-21.
