Hopefully they get Schenn to LA ASAP. He has a game to play...

Glad they did this... too much player wear and tear and the quality of the on-ice product when tired guys are playing their 3rd game in 3 nights or 4th in 5 is just awful.
It certainly is interesting and does fix a lot of problems, but I highly doubt the NHL follows suit given that less games would equate to less revenue, especially down the final stretch of the season. It would be nice to get rid of all the double headers though.

Either way, GO MONARCHS!
