Realistically - how long do you think it will take for players in this league to be paid. The level of play is probably very weak below junior b level. If the cwshl ceases operations and all those "local" players become available my guess is that under a full season these wchl teams will start bidding for services to keep pace. History shows that senior hockey executives have no discipline and the players are greedy. Even if I was a current player 1500people x 8 dollars is a lot of money plus extra for 50/50. Previous debt from these organization will go out the door pretty quickly

Gonna have to pay them next year, no one is going to play a full season for free with the team owners raking in all the money. Also you'll get better local players. I know a lot of good players who didn't play this year for various reasons one of which being they are not interested in playing for free.

Looking at the current rosters this amounts to competitive rec hockey or Senior C. Eventually the excitement of having community hockey back will die down and the on ice product will have to improve to get people in the rink and keep the teams going. Like I said, teams will quickly revert back to the way things are because at the end of the day senior teams want to win ( teams have to do it to stay afloat) and the only way to do that is to bring in players from outside the community which means spending money. Teams will pull every trick in the book to get wins - there is nothing historically in senior hockey that says this wont change especially based on someone saying something in a press conference.

Lets hope the CWSHL can get its act together and work together towards making things sustainable with a 4th team next year. IMO if people could work together we could have a proper 5-7 team high level provincial league with parity. and regional senior B leagues that could act as a feeder.

We all know its only a matter of time before this league is gone to the garbage too. I can promise you that the Mariners are paying their players already. There's no way in the world that Cantwell and Drover drive over from centrel without any money exchanging hands. They used to pay their Jr's for crying out loud.

From what I can tell they haven't played and won't be playing. Not sure what all the fuss is about for 2 non-players.

You're right they haven't played. But the fuss was if they were allowed to. Both of those players would be the top 5 players in the league. That's why other teams had a fuss. I personally think they should be allowed to play. Pay em for all I care, we all know PAB will fill the rink and can afford it. Just don't turn into a AESHL and say you don't. Or turn into the Central West League and overpay and ruin the league.
