    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 Xbox 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 S28, 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

    My only comment is that I think a lot of CHL players would like Thursday off, idk how it would work but if there was to be three games on one day I think it would benefit all leagues. Majority of my team are young guys in their early to mid 20's. They like drinking and girls and all that other crap that costs money. Obviously you guys are trying it because of schedule issues with adding a new team but if it could find a way to be implemented successfully in all three leagues that'd be cool.

    Personally i think Thursday should stay. It provides people that extra day in case their avail is bad. If we are going to remove Thursday, why not rotate that 9th game with Sunday Monday and Tuesday? Why just Tuesday ?
    Ex week one Sunday has 3 games, week 2 has 3 games Monday, and week 3 has 3 games Tuesday, week 4 has 3 games on Wednesday.. and lastly week 5 has 1 game Thursday. Then you just start over to End the season... I think this rotating 9th game would help more then just adding a third game on Tuesday.

    I assume my opinion would be un popular. If you're counter argument is "that doesn't keep the schedule consistent." Just remember that it's only One game being moved each week. It'll still show up on the signup schedule so users aren't confused when signing up. Also! We already have rotating times and that seems to work well at the NHL level. This could be very helpful in summer season. If you can never play Tuesday's this new idea being presented now makes you 6/9 each week. My idea would only put you 6/9 once or twice in the season depending on what day you can't play.

    I think another issue with the Thursday is the fact that it is at 9 nobody wants to get on/sign up for a single early game which also puts them at risk of playing 3 separate days. just imo

    my only concern with having it on one day is how many people will place 1 day availability cause there are 3 games on that day.

    Well I agree for the most part but the problem is the availability if we add a third game in one night. I for one have no issue playing a late game but I can't speak for the rest of the CHL players because some are not willing to play or committed at all to play that late thus the availability problem is still there.

    We try 3 game nights on weeks where there is a holiday and it's always a nightmare. Idk why anyone would ever want this to be a thing full time, if you don't want to play Thursday just don't sign up for it.. leave it as is.

    I completely understand the reasons behind the idea, however, i know many people including myself, who work rotating shifts and removing a game day will hurt more people than the numbers show for signups. i know people complain about 1 game nights but a lot of people rely on this day to get their 3 games in. When I do my scheduling I work it out so each line only has to play 2 nights a week anyways.

    Any chance we can move it to Sunday instead of Tuesday? It's a weekend which most people don't work or work late anyway, and then you can still roll 9,10,11.

    The night doesn't matter. It's the time. Can we please get at least one 8 o'clock game a week? Staying up to play at 10 and 11 sucks sometimes. People have class in the morning or get up early with the kids. Or you could get a game in before you go out drinking. I know there are also people who work 3rd shift and can't make games unless it's a day off. Summer season would be a good trial run for an earlier game a week...or two.

    Exactly, that's one game a week west coasters (or some of them) won't want to play, as opposed to 7 games I can't play. Thank you for saying that :) I'm mostly mad I can't play this eastern conference finals series

    This should apply for Summer Season and instead of Thursday, make it an extra Sunday game. From my past experiences, a LOT of people are able to play Sunday nights.

    I'd agree that the game should either be Monday at 11 or Tuesday/Wednesday at 9.

    OR why not just make games Sunday-Wednesday 9, 10, 11. You shorten the season by 2 weeks. Each player gets 4 games a week. You can then most likely fit a 4th season in each years game, or do an international tournament to end the year that includes all players.

    It has been determined for Summer Season, S27 the thursday game shall not be moved. Our LGHL PSN League will be testing our the "no Thursday game" for summer season to see if it is something that functions properly and if we can adapt to it on Xbox.

    Our schedule guru has reviewed our request to add the 31st NHL team based on the theory of having a floating scheduling. Currently at this time, he has been unsuccessful in trying to piece together a system whereby we can possible incorporate 31 one teams into our already fast pace LGHL seasonal timelines.

    We are going to continue to explore all our options coming into S28, and the release of the next NHL title in hopes to find a way to make this work.

    any questions let me know
