The NHL might have some of the stupidest people involved in their scheduling. You want to grow the game so you have 2 games total on a Wednesday and you make the second one with the best player on the plant "starting" at 10:30 eastern. By the time the puck drops it will be closer to 11 pm eastern time.

How does that make any sense to them!

It makes as much sense as the first game starting at 8:00 (but probably 8:22) eastern. But yeah, the NHL hates its fans. I kind of wonder if hockey has a bit of the wrestling problem in the United States. Wrestling has a fan base that marketers simply don't like and don't want to sell to. If hockey was cared about we'd see a 7:00 pm eastern start and a 10:00 eastern second (with puck drop being the normal 5ish minutes behind). But since hockey isn't cared about the tail wags the dog.



Please do not feed the bears. Feeding the bears creates a dependent population unable to survive on their own. Bears.
