After the verdict that allowed the 20-year-olds to play in the league, the teams began to “buy” championship teams by following former major junior players. The broadcast effect led the league to be called the “Goon League” or “Bush League” because the league became more violent. The community of supporters contracted, and in 1984 there were only 5 teams in the league, all on the verge of bankruptcy.  The owners of the five teams approached the owners of the Talisman Hotel in Ottawa and asked them to purchase the league. Through new management and rule changes, the league has blocked 20-year-old players from major junior ranks, created a limit of five 20-year-olds (from the CJHL) and banned players from paying. The new rules worked, and the league succeeded again.  The league then turned to the Canadian Hockey Association and asked for a new system. After the fall of the Rockland Nationals, the league realized that there was a sales problem among its teams. The league required longer regular seasons and a shorter national playdown schedule to determine the national champion. This new system was guaranteed to increase the revenues of all teams nationally, as they were allowed to have more home games, increase revenue by selling tickets and reduce travel expenses that forced the Rockland Nations to fold shortly after winning the national championship.  MJHL is proud to be a leader in talent development for the WHL and NCAA. It is important that all players and parents/caregivers explore potential progress choices to make an informed decision. David Frost, the agent of former St.
Louis Blues player Mike Danton, was blocked by all Central Junior Hockey League “A” games in the fall of 2005, after Frost entered an off-limits fan zone in the Jim Durrell Arena, where the Ottawa Senators Jr., where Frost “insulted, harassed and threatened a CJHL official.” League commissioner Mac MacLean said, “We don`t want him around time.” The Lumber Kings were fined $1,000 for David Frost`s actions because the league believed frost was linked to owner Sheldon Keefe. MacLean sent posters to every arena in the league to help security guards identify the frost if it should appear at games, and refuse to freeze. A few weeks later, the ban was lifted after Mac MacLean was relieved of his duties as Commissioner of the CJHL. The newly appointed Commissioner, John Comerford, lifted the ban and said, “We cannot prevent David Frost from entering the rink and I have not received any complaints from anyone about him.” The former league vice-president, who was fired, tried to extend the lock during the 2005/06 season. David Frost was not a member. He was allowed to participate in league games, but was excluded from the no-go zones. Frost did not comply with the advice in closed areas and was seen by the CBC Fifth Estate film crew getting off the Lumber Kings bus and was filmed entering the locker room during a playoff game in Nepean. At the end of the season, David Frost split from the league and announced that he would no longer participate in league games.
