The biggest benefit of adding a 2nd international team is that it could bring in some competition for the Shougang Eagles. The Eagles were dominated in nearly every game they played last season. And while it is possible I will be surprised at the quality of play from the Aussies, I think it more likely the Spirit and Eagles will be more or less on par with each other.
Who do you think will win the season series? Aussie Spirit or Shougang Eagles?
