I seriously hope I’m proved wrong and most EPL teams go with Brit goalies pic.twitter.com/bVtIF0izef

Struggling to understand why the EPL has increased the import limit to 5! Will only increase the gap for the teams with ? & those without!??

Remember when all the EPL fans went into meltdown because the EIHL raised the import level…

The only problem with today’s 5 import announcement is that it should have been confirmed before budgets were set for 16/17 #epihl

@BritIceHockey Bad decision, IMHO. Just means a “cheap” import at the expense of a Brit on the roster.

Been listening to a lot of thoughts on the new import rule today so I thought I’d chip in my two cents pic.twitter.com/PaPqsn6dJ0

EPL goes to 5 imports. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

Team GB is soon going to be picking players from NIHL1 with import increases at EIHL and EPL level…
