This is no different than last year (2012-13). The tournament ended on the 17th as the Blades started their playoffs the next weekend.

The 2012/13 season was a 16/12 split with the last weekend being a single game on Friday. You could move a first-half Wednesday game into the second half for a 15-13 split. Last season was also a 3-5-3 for the playoffs. The impact is - you can't wait until Christmas to fix a problem, the season could be over with only 12-13 games left. Other than that - I can't see it being a problem. The season would start the weekend after Canadian Thanksgiving.
