    The goal isn't to change a bulk of the schedule. Like I said the way the schedule will be set up is so you have one new game time a week that's it

    Ahl teams have at least 30-40 TC's shouldn't be too much of an issue.

    Why would CHL need to change? It doesn't need an odd number of teams like NHL/ahl

    I think that this change is not even a big deal. You may not even play at 11 on one of those nights because it is a rotating schedule. Some weeks you will some you won't. I think that this will just be instated and dealt with like almost everything else. I like it. Those time slots are just the times that games CAN be scheduled. Watch LG Hockey Hotline with @LG McDonald past Saturday and you will hear an explanation as you look at the schedule that was just released. It will help a ton to do so.

    I think a lot of people aren't fully grasping the concept behind this and are still stuck on the whole 11:00 thing. I think changing 1 day out of the week for everybody is definitely worth it.

    But as said above, finding ECU's on weekdays during the late games is already a problem and this only makes that problem worse. Some teams no matter how good the owners are just don't have enough committed players and those 2 games a week can add up to a lot of losses throughout an entire season.

    Too many 11PM games. Don't like having to play then go right to bed for work in the AM.

    I have a hard time with that when a majority of LG players are on playing club or ESHL events later than 11 and your NHL has 30-40 eligible ECUs on the AHL

    Managers should just take the time to have a guy or two on standby for ecuing

    Ideal I'd like the ability to schedule and ECU on call. But for now some preparation goes a long way

    There are just as many west coast players who hate 9 pm as there we are maritimers who hate 11 pm games.

    Ifs just two games a week you can't make that leaves 7 others

    Just a point of information: The new proposal will potentially make 3 11 PM games in a week, if during that week one of the other 10 slots is your "off day". So there are instances where you could have 3 11s, one 10 PM be off (in theory), leaving you only 6 slots available, and 5 games. For anyone in the Atlantic time zone, this is a likely outcome if they have adulting to do in the AM.
