If you think playing 3 OT periods in the regular season is a sensible idea, go ahead. I'm not going to argue back and forth over something which has zero chance of ever occuring.

The NHL has not once suggested ever doing this, and considering it is done in the playoffs, you know the idea has crossed their mind. The logistics of doing it don't fit, the NHLPA would likely be completely against it for the injury risk factor alone and arena operators hate long overtimes as is considering how busy arena are and how often they have to undergo transformation, sometimes multiple times a day.

But if you want to continue to cling to the pipe dream of longwinded overtimes in the regular season, go ahead.
