Is the PBL Good for Halifax?

Chris Cochrane at the Chronicle Herald thinks so.

I tend to agree with him, I think that the league is more realistic about its goals than the ABA was (and is), and the teams tend to be much more solid than the teams in the old league.  I am concerned with the fact that some expansion teams disappeared before they really appeared (i.e. the Toronto Lazers) and that the returning Quad cities team decided to throw in the towel before the season starts, but at least these didn’t happen during the season. I also think that instability is the reality in the minor leagues, particularly given the new financial realities.  The measure of a league is how it tries to cope with this instability and the PBL seems to be doing pretty good thus far.
