I would say the ref's in the Dutch league are as crazzy as the Iraq and U.S.A war. I looked at some of my friends games in Amsterdam last season and my eyes could not beleave approximately all of the calls where donkey calls.
The level i would say is better then the O.H.L. or, W.H.L. But there is some very good players in that level, very good! I would say like Division 1 Universities in the U.S.A. The big Universities i would say.
But, you have to understand that in the U.H.L. Players all get payed alot more money. Some of them where drafted and played up in the A.H.L Some also signed at one time in the N.H.L.
Players on two way contracts, and young players on week contracts. So, the young kids have to bust there balls off everyday. Or there history, going home. It gets better every season. Boys get biger all the time...From all over the world!
All the best
