    I know that the United States has "senior" level competition in terms of the USA hockey nationals and adult leagues, but there is nothing that can compare to the Allan Cup in Canada. Being from the states, it seems that a lot of top players hit a dead end whenever their collegiate, amateur (midget), junior careers conclude, and there is no outlet for these skilled players to continue to keep playing. What are your thoughts on the possibility of an organization or group of teams constructing a high level senior amateur competiton in the United States. I'd guess that the U.S. would have to be divided into districts, possibly based on USA hockey regions, and there would be highly competitive leagues within each region, with automatic bids and some wildcard teams in each region. Basically, would it be feasible and practical to start a competition similar to the Allan Cup, in the United States?
