With the National Lacrosse League expanding by two teams next season and planning to add at least five more teams in the coming few years, the NLL is going to need more players. Many of them will come from the Arena Lacrosse League.
That's the word from Stephen Stamp, editor at IL Indoor and play by play voice of the ALL Cup. Stamp used his weekly Musings column, in which he shares observations from around the NLL, to focus on some of the ALL players who will likely be part of the next wave of players entering the pro league.
"This week's Musings will turn its eyes away ever so slightly away from the NLL and take a look at the players on the cusp of the big time who hit the turf to decide the ALL Cup or whose teams fell by the wayside en route to the championship," Stamp writes.
