    Wasn't the reason that UK had two teams in the CHL next season because the Panthers had already won the Continental Cup , thereby getting automatic qualification?

    That seems the only logical reason.

    Think on this

    If rules don't change and I interpret correctly - just imagine this

    2018
    Steelers win Continental Cup
    Panthers win playoffs
    We win league

    Gives 3 EIHL teams in CHL That would really annoy our continental neighbours

    In that situation, wouldn't the panthers go back to the continental cup instead of CHL? Don't think we can get 3 teams in the CHL, unless we win the CHL, steelers win the continental cup and panthers win the league. Which would be awesome, but highly unlikely.

    This is essentially what happened last season just with Steelers and Panthers the other way around and we only got 2 teams in CHL.

    Does anyone have any ideas of what the roster size rules are for the CHL? Are our 3 u23s going to be expected to be on the bench or if we run with a spare import this year will they also be allowed on the bench?

    Nottingham in the past loaded up with spare imports because there are no restrictions in the CHL.

    we could I believe play with a whole roster of imports. We obviously won't/don't need to do that but unless rules of changed we can strength a little bit for the competition.

    Banska Bystrica seeded 4 places above the devils? I remember us giving them a good run for their money at the start of the pre-season!

    Never advisable to sign additional imports just for the CHL. We signed Martins Raitums, Martin Podlesak, Nathan Robinson and Mark Lee for the CHL. Raitums is garbage, Podlesak retired before the CHL even finished for us, Lee injured so iced for about 5 minutes in Amiens during Pre-Season and Robinson was in a world of his own with issues.

    I think it would also disrupt the chemistry of the team when re-adjusting to league.

    A reminder that the draw is 3pm tomorrow. Streamed live on the CHL Facebook page.

    Hopefully we'll get the fixtures in around two weeks time. The start and end dates of the group stages are midweek, so these games might be midweek, with the league on the weekend?

    Unsure about Devils obviously but Panthers have reserved the last weekend in August and the first weekend in September to play some of their games, with others likely being midweek around then.

    Did I see somewhere that the league starts a week later this season? Or I might have got confused with something else.

    If that is true though, I would think we have done the same. Hopefully get two of the away games done in the first two weeks to reduce travel during the league season.

    So we are in Pot E

    Cardiff Devils
    HC Davos
    Bill Tygri Liberec
    Vaxjo Lakers

    What do we think?

    Would have liked Red Bill Munich or Frolunda myself.
