    Definitely think it should be sun, mom, tues, wed only. If we move to 12 games a week we should add a 3rd goalie to every roster. This way no goalie is expected to live his life on lg.

    True but there's no way you can expect someone to play 6 games a week.

    I expect you play two days a week right now..

    Two days with the next format would be six games..

    Considering so many of LG play banana leagues there is no reason they couldn't easily do 6 games a week. Maybe they can't play both leagues if this were to happen, but I find that good as people will either play just on LG or risk getting banned here or not signing up. Rather see dedicated people to playing in LG.

    The big difference being, some people can't stay up till midnight to finish that eleven o'clock game.

    And others aren't available until 930.


    This is a wrench for this schedule.

    I still like the switch. But I see the other side

    If you disagree with my idea then you're a bad person.

    I'm sure there are many folks here like me that hit the alarm at 5am which makes those late games unattractive. I like the idea of adding a 3rd game on Wednesday eliminating the Thursday game more than I like the 12 games per week schedule. It seems this change splits the community in half. I can suck it up if the 12 per week happens because I feel the Thursday game is so unpopular.

    I played 6 games a week this past season, and rarely was that accomplished in the minimum of 3 gamedays. This works in theory but there are a lot of guys who only play early or late games, we can't assume everyone can play all of 9pm to 11pm on a given day to make it this efficient.

    Yup. This can be a easy fix to if they go 12 games a week by adding a 3rd goalie. It's just logical to add a 3rd.

    3rd Goalies are not realistic and this league is supposed to be kept realstic as possible.

    Also what are you going to do in the playoffs with 3 goalies? The rules would need to be changed and 3 goalies having to play playoff games makes it that much less competitive.

    yeah not a fan of 3 goalies. There are some backups now that shouldn't be in the NHL, imagine how watered down that would be with 3. Playoffs would be a real issue because u only play a max of 7 in a week.

    If we want to get rid of thursdays then we should do it while keeping the weekly GP the same

    What about

    Keep it 3 lines
    Eliminate thursdays
    Add the 9pms to Tues Wed or 11pms to Sun Mon

    3 lines

    10 games a week
    Sun 9 10
    Mon 9 10
    Tues 9 10 11
    Wed 9 10 11

    All 3 lines play 3 and one line or any 5 skaters can play 4 a week aka your first line

    Isn't the Goalie max 6 games now? And if you can do it in 2 nights why not?

    A starting goalie is already on 3 nights a week to play his max games. I always find showing up for one game on Thursday night to be a waste. If I'm gonna get on I want to play multiple games, The wife's already mad at me for playing "fake hockey" I might as well get more games in while i'm on.

    I like this idea. I think the times proposed are not good, need to have the CHL>AHL>NHL staggered 30 minutes from the Leagues below or above for ECU's.

    So go
    NHL 9 - 10 - 11
    AHL 8:30 - 9:30 - 10:30
    CHL 9 - 10 - 11 or 8 - 9 - 10 if you want CHL to be earlier.

    I think this should be done. It opens up more times for games to be played each night which should open up more players availabilities. It makes life easier for Management, which imo should be the #1 priority as they are the backbone of this league. It also eliminates a 1 game night, which is a pain for managers.

    What happens when one of the rostered goalies can only play 3 a week. Then the other goalie has to play 9?

    And there are west coasters that work a 9-5 job that have to rush home to make the early games. Like you said, its one night out of the week, we can suck it up if it makes it easier for managers.

    If the current max is 6 for a G and the and 3 games per week, the max wont be 9. It would probably go to 8, so the back up would have to play 4.

    Regardless of if its 6 games in the old system or 8-9 in the new one you are still required to be on 3 nights to do so.
