Hello! This is my first post, so i do expect to get both complimentary and constructive feedback. I have been working on this project for about 4 weeks now, and i am pretty content with the outcome. I go on the forum every day and i love all the work on it. So, uh..., here it is! BACKGROUND: STARTING IN 1988, THE NHL WANTED TO EXPAND OUT OF NORTH AMERICA. WHEN FACED WITH THE REALIZATION THAT THIS WOULD BE EXTREMELY HARD FOR MANY REASONS, THEY DECIDED ON THE NEXT BEST THING: A FOREIGN FARM-TEAM LEAGUE. BECAUSE OF HOCKEY AND CANADA'S TIES, THE NHL DECIDED TO BASE THIS LEAGUE IN FRANCE. 8 TEAMS WERE DECIDED ON AND THE LEAGUE WOULD START THE FOLLOWING YEAR. THE LEAGUE WOULD FUNCTION LIKE A REGULAR HOCKEY LEAGUE (PLAYOFFS, DRAFT, ETC...), BUT WITH THE EXCEPTION THAT THE DESIGNATED TEAMS WOULD BE ABLE TO TRADE THEIR PLAYERS WITH THE CORRELATING FRENCH TEAM. THE FRANCAIS HOCKEY LIGUE ENDED IN 1992, AFTER FOUR YEARS. THE MAIN REASON WHY WAS BECAUSE OF NEW AND RELOCATED TEAMS AND A FAILURE TO GET TV SPOTS OUTSIDE OF FRANCE. HERE IS A SLIDESHOW OF THE LEAGUE, TEAMS, AND CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. So, if you have any questions of any feedback, i'd be happy to respond! Thanks! P.S. It would be nice if you could tell me which team was your favorite/least favorite
