Probe is failing at developing players imo because there isnt enough incentive for veteran players to become friends with and play with new players, aside from some veterans just being elitist (lookin at you nova ) please keep in mind, Earning praise from veterans and trust that you might play a ZHL game is BY FAR the most rewarding thing to probe players.
In order to increase incentive you could make probe worth more by having it count for home field playoff adv or something- this might be problematic with the current probe set up as coaches might play eu stars instead of true young probes.
I have alot of ambiguity as far as eu players in probe. On the one hand, youd want new players, regardless of server, to develop and make frnds. On the other you dont want newer players sitting the bench for eu stars. the easy solution is to ban all eu from probe league but i hope we can create a more elegant solution.

another way to increase incentive for veterans to coach probes would be to create a rule where each ZHL team would have to start one probe player, 2-5 games a season. Youd be looking to target people like myself, mlg, chad, ispy etc .. someone who hasn't really played in ZHL and was drafted past 4th round.. it would be easiest to just make a list of eligible probes before draft.

Blitz suggested a great idea to management at the beginning of S6 - make probe wins worth 1 point a piece towards ZHL standings. The terohkurtmoose coaliton shut him down fast

If probe remains mostly the way it was, with teams attached to a ZHl team, I think probes games should count towards ZHl but that doesn't fix the problem of players siting the bench in probe, it will actually makes it worse

From what I've gathered, some teams, mine included would have 12+ players active for games, having to turn away players even if they spent all week practicing was disconcerting. While they were understanding, it's tedious showing up, practice and winding up not being able to play for a single 20 min game after setting aside a couple hours of your time.
Probe needs to be separated from ZHL. If you truly want to remove people from abusing attendance then don't allow probes to be played in place of ZHL players. That would force owners to draft a team based on attendance or pay for it by not having enough players. (In a ten team league) you could have the top 60 players all be in ZHL and eligible to sub. This gives you two attendance subs or server based subs. Maybe after 1/3 and 2/3 of the season you prepare another draft of the 5/6th round ZHL and the 7/8th round of Probe(expected to be best probe players). This draft would allow a second and third analysis of player skills and make probes qualifying to play in ZHL a bigger opportunity. This would give probes something to work for(ZHL) and redistribute the players that are active to teams that could be using them instead of turning them away.
