Too me it's not just the amount of Brits but the quality. There may be enough Brits to go round but will the overall quality drop because teams have to sign unproven Brits. Im not saying there should be 11 imports just that could it be a better option.
I could name you 2 brits from around the same age bracket with EIHL experience who would be a more than adequate, proven replacement for Farmer if they could be tempted back up from the EPL - Nell and Ben Campbell. That's just off the top of my head...
I see where you are coming from and totally understand there are possible replacements. I feel money will become a problem with Brits coming back to EIHL ending in bidding wars between the EPL and EIHL teams. I feel this is where the lower teams will struggle.
