Default Is The NHL Season To Long?

Alot of people think that the NHL season is to long. I find its mostly people who aren't crazy about hockey though. I like it how it is. Sometimes it does feel like its really long. Espically if your team is on top for the whole season. But for me right now, my Stars need these games to gain ground on San Jose, Detroit, and Colorado. So would you make the season shorter? And if so, how many games would you make it?

It's definatly the longest of all the sports, or at least it feels that way.

I don't mind it but then again I don't really watch hockey much until the NFL season is done.

well, the rules committee is taking a look at the points system, making a win worth three points instead of two.....that may make a difference in the worth of the extra games.....i think the best hockey season in recent memory was the strike shortened season, because the games meant more.....so i'd shorten it a bit......

I don't like the idea of changing the point system. But I do think that they should cut down on the number of games a bit ... even if it is only down to 65-70 games.

One thing I think the NHL does need to do, however, is contract. Remove some of the teams from areas where hockey doesn't thrive. Cutting down on the teams would also increase the talent in the game.

Yep, very good idea. The NHL is to watered down. Teams like Flordia, and Columbus will never be good. And i'm not even sure why the Flordia has two teams to being with. All this expansion in the last decade was a bad idea.

expansion is okay in some areas, but the NHL basically doubled in about what, a ten year period.....that leads to diluted talent, and the fan base is not as stable......no wonder they are in trouble.....

True. And they should also let less teams in the playoffs. I know some of the 8th, and 7th seeded teams can get hot, and go far. But most of the time the first series are a blowout.

I can only think of two cities that actually desvered a team, out of all those expansion teams. That would be Minnesota, and Ottawa. The Stars should of never left Minny to being with. Thats a like a hockey capital in the U.S.

by having so many playoff teams, they tend to make the regular season less important.....heck, the teams know all you have to do is finish around .500 and you're in.....then, once you get in the playoffs, anything can happen.....

NBA has sort of the same problem, but it's not as drastic......

yeah maybe they could cut it down a bit, but not too much. the teams need a chance to make the playoffs if they struggle at the start. Now baseballs is too long.

The NHL Playoffs are WAY too long they should make all of the payoffs series' best of 5 games and just make The NHL Finals a best of 7.

No way! The playoffs is the best part about hockey. Its part that everyone waits for. Plus it makes a team work hard to win a championship.
