Lipstick on pigs. Hell yeah, we love it when names change and faces stay the same. The disaster that was the C1HL is dead once again. That’s right all you dummies who fell for that recruiting bullshit this season, the C1HL is dead for the second time without ever dropping a puck.
But now we got the USACHL. Yes, that is the USA CHL. This stick that alphabet soup in your mouth and chew on it for a while.
Oh yeah, and heading up the latest league to hit the market as commissioner is Rick Kozuback. The same person who so successfully was leading the C1HL. The same person who so successfully helped run the CHL pro league.
The name, a dead give away for people not learning how to let go of the past. The CHL failed. It cost people millions of dollars and left financial disaster in its wake. So why not just reboot it as a junior league and try it again?!?!?! Yeah, that sound like an awesome business plan.
It gets better though.
The name USA CHL. Very patriotic looking. But they are going to rely heavily on import players. Sound familiar? Sounds like the C1HL business plan under a different set of initials.
Thinks its not a CHL reboot? The first cities being announced at Rio Grande, Laredo, and other former CHL locations.
Yes. Its always a good idea to put a new junior team, in a building where the city never supported the North American Hockey League! That makes great business sense. Its even smarter when you recycle the Killer Bee’s name, and immediately limit your ability to sell new merchandise.
Who is next? Wichita? Austin? Does Austin even have an arena? Nothing says recipe for success like announcing a new non USA Hockey league at the end of March to begin to play in just over six months.
Is it free to play? Pay to play?
How about this awesome website? http://usachl.com/
We love press conferences. Especially when no one talks about the details. You know, like who sanctions the league and teams. Or what the league rules are. Or we have a domain name but no website.
Success is written all over this one kids. And if you believe that, you probably believe that the USACHL will have a successful expansion team in Dubai.
