    With the recent expansion announcement, the league schedule will no longer require a tenth time slot. What that means for the LGHL is consistency in the schedule yet again.

    With the recent news of ESHL game times being moved to the Wednesday/Thursday time slot to be more exclusive we have decided to keep our LGHL times Sunday until Wednesday.

    The Wednesday timeslot for the LGHL will be a single game. The main reason why we are currently leaving the LGHL four days a week is for player availability as well as playoff timings. I think down the road we could see the league shift to a three days a week format.

    What I am curious to see is which of the two scheduling formats will work for the NHL community:

    Option #1
    • Sunday - 9-10-11
    • Monday - 9-10-11
    • Tuesday - 9-10
    • Wednesday - 9

    Option #2
    • Sunday 9-10
    • Monday 9-10-11
    • Tuesday 9-10-11
    • Wednesday 9

    Please vote, and take the opportunity to give your comments below.

    Thanks

    I think 3 Sunday is beneficial, quite a few people have avail that's Sunday/whatever other day, always made sense to me to have 3 games Sunday. Allows for more people to have their games all done in one night

    Everyone is available Sunday night, so 3 games is a must. Also having 3 games on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday make it easier with availability problems because ppl can play all their games in one night.

    I like front-loading it too. 6 games in the first two nights could be beneficial to most players i think

    I think we could go to a three day schedule one day just not yet

    @LG McDonald, I personally feel like having the schedule simply be Sunday, Monday, Tuesday (3-3-3) would be the easiest for both scheduling & majority of availability now that ESHL is Wednesday & Thursday.

    Is there some reasons that have you leaning towards having the one game Wednesday?

    3-3-3 please and thank you. Idk anyone who's ever willing to get on and play the 1 game Wednesday nights. Especially with all the advertising to ESHL and having that spark more interest it only makes sense to not have the two league collide. 3-3-3 and try it out. Adjust as you go if it doesn't work. I can't see a reason the league doesn't go forward with this.

    From a player perspective, I like #1.

    From a managerial perspective, I like #2 because I just know we're going to run into issues with some guys giving 2/9 avail because they have VG or some other league Sun/Mon/Wed.

    @LG McDonald why not front load the week 3 games Sunday Monday Tuesday, Wednesday reserved for make ups. Run the E sports on Wed- Saturday or Thursday through Saturday and keep Wednesday for make ups in both leagues.

    Priority should be to this league. We are a competing site and if we have conflicting times then people will have to choose one or the other and that's ok.

    Why not just three games on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday? From my experience, most players (especially goalies) hate having to play just one game in a night. Either of these formats would see a good amount of players having a night each week playing just one game. It's also a bit of an annoyance for managers to need to get their team together for just one game. These aren't major issues (and obviously we have been doing this for years), but I just can't think of a single way in which either of these options make more sense than simply doing 3-3-3. This way you still have an open Wednesday time slot for reschedules and the one 10 game week. I'm not much of a gambler, but I'd bet 3-3-3 would receive a good majority of the votes if it were listed as an option.
