    Entering this season we moved the NHL game times to Sunday 830-930-1030, Monday 830-930-1030, Tuesday 930-1030, Wednesday 930.

    I am just looking to get some community feedback on how these times worked.

    I would prefer if we had some games for West Coast guys (10:30-11 EST) as well in the CHL. That would allow us west coast guys to have better availability. As a west coast player the 8:30est and 9:30est game times makes it hard for me to get home, make dinner and then eat before gametimes and often leads to not being able to play an type of warmup.

    You should collect location data as part of signups so owners can at least take location into account. I still believe the majority of scheduling issues are because a lot of players play in multiple leagues. That you cannot fix.

    Always preferred the 3 nights 3 games format. Most people go to work Monday morning anyway so I don’t think a 10:30 game during week is that big of a deal. Can always try to give east coast guys the earlier games. But most are on playing at that time anyway. 3 lines 3 nights makes a whole lot more sense to me

    3 games each night would be better. each line can play all their games in one night

    3 games a night, 3 days a week would be optimal, can roll 3 separate lines, can play one line all 3..think it would help alleviate some of the owner management headaches and would allow those that play in multiple leagues the opportunity to do so. My 2 cents.. Thanks

    Love the 3 games a night. You probably will see a little more involvement from TC’s due to people’s availability constrictions during a whole season. Love the late night games! Push it to 9-10-11

    Easier for people to make the commitment.

    How about we have game times that better accommodate the minority of players in Europe. Given today’s society that decision would make the most sense. Inconvenience the majority so that the minority has equal opportunity. Where is the selection button for that?

    Or some of the so called “Game Changers” could actually lobby EA for some dedicated servers on EASHL so that we could level the playing field and have better competition. Guess LG isn’t big enough to get support from the game developers.

    Game changers are a marketing plor they don't actually have any input they can only suggest things. Euros do have there own servers, I believe one is in Sweden and the other in Finland or Germany. If your suggesting bring 11 NA players onto a euro server for just 1 player then that is ridiculous.

    Not at all. I was sarcastically mocking society and their philosophical decisions using LG as medium to do so. But in all seriousness, 10:30 games blow because some people have jobs and work Mon-Fri. But hey if you wanna make the sacrifice three days a week for a video game then by all means, have er’.

    as an owner..... i think the 3 days would be great!!!! takes off so much headache from owners trying to get guys 4 day as opposed to 3 ..
    less work for owners to chase down some "kids" to play... also makes it a little easier to keep TC/ECUS available and not string them along for 4 days wishing they can play.... lol
    just an owners idea to the whole thing.. thanks

    My only problem with 3 nights is my own availability. I work retail so my schedule is not always the same. 7am to 4pm one day, 1pm to 10pm the next, etc. Having 4 days usually let's me get at least 2 nights I can play.
    I know this is just me personally but might be others who have jobs that their schedules change as well.

    If not for the work schedule I'd love 3 nights

    For me I'd say the more 10:30 games the better , 8:30 games are iffy for me during the week but I get that alot of the player demographic is in the east so it is what it is

    Taking a day away from the schedule is a bad idea, that would limit players availability, for example if they did 3 Sunday 3 Monday and three Tuesday but the player can only do Sundays and Wednesday’s now he’s no longer active for the league and can only sign up for 3/9 over the 5/9 if it remains the same

    As @Farx9 said, I feel that taking one day away would make some players lose availability. In my personal experience as a manager and the observations I've made over the years, most of the time, people aren't available for a full night not just one or two games that night. Going to a three night schedule would restrict availability IMO.
