I don?t understand why the creation of a midwest division has failed so many times. There are definitely talented players to roster on the teams. I find it hard to believe that 4 teams could not be made from the midwest to form a division. Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, are all home towns for some top notch inline hockey players. I think that the PIHA and MLRH are missing out on some serious competition that could come from this area.
Re: Midwest Division
I think MLRH and PIHA were certainly open to the concept...however that the teams never managed to get it together seems to be the story.
