    Entering this season we moved the NHL game times to Sunday 9-10-11, Monday 9-10-11, Tuesday 9-10, Wednesday 9.

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

    My answer isn’t black and white. Personally, I think it would be ideal to have 2 LG games on Wednesdays during the Caps tournament to have less LG games played Sundays to create the least possible scheduling conflicts as possible between the 2 events. The Caps tournament games have to be played Saturdays/Sundays and odds are most often than not people won’t want to play Saturdays. So the more time off Sunday gives us more time to schedule our caps tournament games. However once that’s over and we enter the next LG ESHL season I believe it would be ideal to go to 3 games per night, Sunday-Tuesday, to once again avoid potential conflict in scheduling with the ESHL game nights on Wednesdays.

    Caps event is over by Week 3. We may be able to adjust the first two weeks if need be

    Taking a 9 away to add an 11 isn't great for those of us who work early

    Im in the same boat with this however the one game on Wednesday is really silly. I’d rather give up 1 more game of my availability if it means the week ends a day earlier

    We used to have Thursday games, little by little were making it more challenging for the casual player to continue to participate. I'd rather leave an early game I can play then mush it all in 3 nights

    I don't think this is a popular opinion. Having three in a night becomes less of a commitment for some players

    I see two options. One small change or one much larger change for the schedule.

    1.) Simply go to a 3-3-3 schedule (Sun-Tues) or

    2.) Move to a 10 game, 8 week regular season schedule. 3 games Sunday/Monday and 2 games Tuesday/Wednesday. Week 8 would be 3 games each day. This scenario would enable more people to play if they can't play 2/3 days of the 3-3-3 format, and I don't think that one less week of commitment would be a bad thing. Only negatives would be figuring out how to schedule (the top line shouldn't get the extra game each week), and we'd have to move the trade deadline as well.

    People will complain regardless of what's done with the schedule, but I think avoiding the potential loss of players would be in the leagues best interest, and the second format drops the dreaded one game night from the schedule as well. LG probably won't want to make this big of a change, but I think it would be worth trying out option 2 in a Summer season or something.

    Edit: I also dislike playing three games a night every week. I don't think Guapo's opinion is that great of a minority.

    I really like Bossy's idea of the 10 game week over 8 weeks. It increases days available for games, removes a day of one game only that defeats the purpose of having another day for availability, and also gives a break from 3 games every night while shortening the season as well. Excellent idea I'd like to see implemented.
