Grab a clue, make it a 7:30 start, and more people come out. Only an idiot would schedule afternoon hockey games in Edmonton during our very short summer.
Its not rocket science.
- It wasn't a crowd of 10K, it was less than 8K.
- game 7 would have been tomorrow in Portland, they needed to make this game as early as possible just to accommodate the potential travel. That's why it wasn't an evening game.
- all CHL playoffs need to be done by tomorrow night as the Memorial Cup starts 5 days later and teams need to get to Saskatoon for all the things leading up to it.
It wasn't idiotic scheduling, it was unavoidable.
