Expansions[edit]

Should we expand the template to include older teams such as the Belleville McFarlands and other teams from the OHA Senior A League (1929-1979)?

I considered this. I think that we almost need to have separate ones for the OHA Senior A Hockey League (formerly the continental league)... as well as the OHA Senior A League (1929-1979)... even with just those two each one has literally dozens of teams.
Another big problem is that this template only begins with teams that entered these leagues in 2002. If you look at Major League Hockey... all those leagues essentially merged over the course of about 15 years to form the Southwestern Senior A Hockey League... renamed Major League Hockey in 2002... To be honest, I don't know where to draw the line on this... even this template here could list upwards to 70 additional teams that all technically are the foundation of the league. If we chop it down to the year the SWSHL was official dubbed the SWSHL, 1990... then we only need to add about 14 more teams if we don't include the Central league('s teams) that folded around 1993. So much forgotten history. Any thoughts? DMighton (talk) 07:05, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
Put in a section linking to other senior leagues past or present, without listing all teams. Flibirigit (talk) 08:42, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
