As a Newfoundlander, this is fantastic.

There were games that didn't start until Midnight my time in the current system. The Avs game against SJ earlier this year was a mid night start. That's a game that doesn't finish until 2:45 - 3:00am at the earliest. Add in OT and a SO and its 330AM before that game is done. And like you said when one has to wake up at 7:30 the next morning, those games simply cant be watched to completion for me haha.

Also like our playoff chances down the road. As soon as next year we should be better then DAL, NSH, and WPG. That alone puts us in 4th at least. We should be better then Minny too.

I like our chances for playoffs a lot more now in this division, seems really weak.
