The NHL’s unbalanced schedule will once again be front and centre at the board of governors meeting in Chicago on Tuesday while talk of possible expansion will also be on the agenda when owners gather for the first time this season.
Few issues have ignited as much passionate debate among owners in recent years as the schedule, which since the lockout has featured eight games versus each divisional opponent—too many according to some—and only 10 games (five on the road) against non-conference opponents.
“We cannot walk away from the debate, it’s critically important to our customers,” Oilers president and CEO Pat LaForge told The Canadian Press on Monday. “We think it’s the same for all Western teams. We think we’re at a huge disadvantage the way the schedule is right now.”
