Is it possible for the best conference in high school hockey to get better?

The Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League (MIHL) is the best league in all of Michigan high school hockey. I wish things were different. I’d love to offer up a debate or counterpoint. It’s even a little hard for me to say that out loud and admit it, but there is no other conference like the MIHL. It’s the equivalent of the SEC in college football. Hate ‘em because you ain’t ‘em, the 10-team league in metro Detroit is like pro wrestling’s greatest heel of all-time. Member teams have won 34 of the past 60 state championships, with winners at all three divisions, including a clean sweep in 2021.
