The news that three Scottish teams are considering their future in the Elite League has sparked plenty of debate across the sport.
As reported by Fife Today, Dundee Stars, Fife Flyers and Edinburgh Capitals have serious concerns over proposed changes to the running of the league and the conference structure.
Dundee and Fife both issued statements on their official websites saying they would release an update on their plans after the EIHL board meeting at the end of this month.

I do wonder exactly what Fife and Dundee want to hear at the EIHL meet. Genuine question.

If Fife & Dundee didn’t want to play in 2 conferences of 6, they shouldn’t have agreed to 2 conferences of 6.

@CapsBanterArmy All too predictable, Fife & Dundee issue statements, Tony Smith tries to circle wagons with ‘nothing to see here’. Who’ll blink first?

For Dundee and Fife, to be in any other league than the @officialEIHL would be a travesty

If EIHL fans want the league to be extended we need them to back Dundee & Fife otherwise the leagues taking a step back.

@sbookkeepings I’d be gutted to see Fife and Dundee out the league if it happens. Don’t think we’d be far behind

Let’s be honest here, if @BraeheadClan weren’t owned by one of the problems, they’d be supporting this aswell.

Got a feeling Scottish clubs looking for 3 conferences of 4 teams. Presumably FF / EC / DS / BC – CB / CD / MK / GF – NP / SS / BG / MS

British ice hockey is growing year upon year, more so for the Scottish game. Would be a shame to see 3 of the top scottish teams leave #EIHL
