    There has been a lot of discussion and debate surrounding the idea to move our Thursday, 9 PM EST game to a Tuesday at 9 PM time slot. This has been discussed among the NHL Owners, on both consoles and now I want to see what our PSN Community feels.

    Please keep in mind the following key points:

    • This is ONLY for the NHL. AHL and CHL will still have a Thursday game!
    • This is ONLY a trail for one season!
    • The intention is to add Vegas come S6, and in order to have an odd number of teams, we do need to add time slots to the week. That will result in teams still ONLY playing nine games a week BUT the "days off" maybe very from week to week.
    • The intent is to great move a game that has poor availability(Thursday) to a day that has excellent availability(Tuesday). This will also result in Tuesday having three games,

    What are you thoughts? Do you feel this benefits the League, especially during a summer season?

    If you have no comments to make, PLEASE AT LEAST VOTE! The voting is important for me to see how the community feels about a change of this nature!

    Thanks

    I think what makes Thursday less appealing is the fact it is only one game.

    If we add Vegas in S6 and we now have game times of Thursday 9 and 10, it maybe different

    I agree with that, why don't we just add 2 more teams instead of Vegas? Add Quebec or Hartford back just to make it even in both conferences

    Simulation league experience.

    That part of me I can't wrap my head around adding a team that isn't real lol

    The real NHL will be 32 teams sooner than later

    So if we went 31 S6, you guys would obviously need to make a new schedule. Would one team just get an off day every so often?

    Schedule would be easy to make. We could still have 15 games played in the 9 current time slots, with one team getting a "BYE" in each slot.

    The 10th "extra" time slot (on Tues or Thurs) could hold up to 5 or 6 games (edit: would have to be six to prevent overscheduling Week 9), so every team still plays at least 9 games per week.

    The problem is that some three teams could play a 10th game in a week but before Week 9. It would be even more difficult to identify & enforce the "Ineligible Player" rule for having several players play more than 3 games in a week.

    1.) End of the week, all roster players games are played except 6, so you can't roster sub or switch freely if you become available or are not available

    2.) There is 1 game when every other day has 2

    3.) It is at 9pm which alienates 90% of West coasters during the weekday (Sundays are 9 but thats a weekend and Monday is are only other 9)

    4.) For the college kids (which is roughly are average age group), it is a night in which a lot of them go out, or it use to be when I was in college and played LG

    Those factors usually are why the sign up/availabilty for it are the lowest

    I think this would be a great move for S5 to set up for an expanded schedule in S6.

    Tuesday is kinda the best day hence why I went with Tuesday. And it avoids holidays and such

    One week will be rough since July 4th is the Tuesday but it'll be easy to move the games around that week

    Also, anecdotally, I think the 9pm time slot probably accommodates more of the league (east). I assume that's why we have the distribution we've got to begin with (3 @ 9pm, 3 @ 10pm, 2 @ 11pm)?

    So since we're talking about moving the Thursday game out of the season all together, would it be worth it to suggest moving game 7 from Thursday as well in the playoffs? Or fuck it, hell no?

    Idk I just think that if everyone plans their schedules for no Thursday games then game 7 lineups would be hard to put together as well.
