Immediately following the conclusion of tonight’s Devils/Sens game we had a brilliant idea for a rule change. In the wake of the big realignment decision, we figure the BOG would be open to even more sweeping changes, so we’ll put this out there for them to consider. Now, we fully put forth that this rule change would help the Devils quite a bit in the immediate future, but looking long-term, this will likely be a benefit to all the teams. So here’s the deal:
In our new, improved NHL the first period would be 20 minutes, the second period would be 20 minutes, and the third period would be 19 minutes and 45 seconds.
We know. It’s brilliant. Think about it, BOG. We don’t even care if you flat-out steal it and try to claim it as your own idea. Just make it happen.
