Media in Sweden talks about NHL style league

Media in Sweden started yesterday to write about a new top league in Sweden for Floorball that would be shaped after an NHL concept. With two divisions, 2 more teams, and traveling teams that went on road trips to play away games etc. The reports also described how lower leagues would be configured. And it was said that all this would be valid from next season.

In comments to this some officials from SEI does not confirm or deny the reports in detail and say no decisions has been made.
Here is a TV clip in Swedish that is related

We say here;
A) A concept with less travel, shorter distances over the Geography and several games on each road trip is a slam-dunk in economical terms for every team as compared to the current system, the time it will take to get there is the main problem - not the opportunity. It is just to compare what is an opportunity and a problem.

But we also say;
B) The only way to fast shape floorball with much more even competition and much more interest for the sport - is the creation of trans-national leagues. This is the sure way to go if floorball wants to build for the Olympics. This would also mean much better exposure in English. This is to us - beyond a slam-dunk - and an obvious no brainier.

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
