It gives the teams that struggle with numbers a consistent group to use to fill out the team. It is also a program that is designed with the intent to give players whom may not get too much playing time with their primary team a chance to get more touches and develop. We as a league believe we are past the days where teams are looking to sandbag and trophy hunt. That being said, we will be monitoring the match results for CP teams.
