Doesn't sound good, but if it's still more physical than the current NHL, you're in better shape than the OHL. The O is so bad, I'm considering getting AHL tickets this year just for the physical play -- and the AHL is full of guys one injury away who don't want to get hurt in the meantime.
It seems early this year, crowds here are finally taking a hit. But Ontario is the epicenter of the ban everyone, suspend everyone philosophy. I wish the NHL had appointed someone from the west instead of Shanahan. I didn't have a good feeling as soon as Campbell stepped down.
