I think shortening the season will help the NHL by decreasing player salaries in the long run and increasing fan interest in individual games. One of my big complaints about the NHL is that a regular season game just doesn't mean very much. Combine that with the fact that tickets are more expensive than for any other north american team sport, and it's easy to see why attendance is down in a lot of arenas.
The NHL has a LOT of problems. This addresses one of them.
But I'd reduce it to 60 games rather than 72.
