TV Money and time scheduling are not the same thing.

They like to stagger the start times, especially in the 1st round. It makes plenty of sense when you'll have at least a couple games on the East Coast starting at 6/6:30. For the first round, it is not out of the possibility to have a game start at 8/8:30 here.

They absolutely are. I work in advertising/media planning and buying, this kinda thing is what I do. Start times dictate # of viewers. Viewers dictate ratings. Ratings dictate rates for ads. It's all a big circle.

I remember some 8pm starts 4 years ago against Calgary and obviously last year against Phoenix. I don't ever recall any home starts later than that.

There's nothing you can really do about it in the first round when the majority of the teams in the league are in the Eastern time zone. There are often too many games out east to make a "regular" start time here even feasible.

This is the ONLY matchup of 2 CTZ teams. It doesn't make any sense to have them play later the way the schedule works out.

East Game: 7e/6c or 7:30e/6:30c - NBCSN
East Game: 7e/6c or 7:30e/6:30c - NHLN
CHI/MIN: 8e/7 or 8:30e/7:30c - CNBC
West game: 10e/9e - NBCSN

It's too easy. Don't know what are you are saying about 'there's nothing you can really do about it' when the schedule sets up so perfectly for them to play at 7 or 7:30 for any weeknight game. Look at the 2012 schedule I posted. There isn't ever 3 East games on the same night, so the majority of teams being in ETZ doesn't make a difference.

Game 1 is apparently Tuesday, according to NBCSN just now.

Goddamnit. Would not have scheduled to umpire if I knew that.

I had to ump at 5:30 the day the Hawks won the Cup. Told both coaches to have their kids (7-9 year olds) up there swinging because I wasn't missing the opening faceoff.

Thankfully the game only went 4 innings because of a slaughter, so I ended up getting home about two minutes into the first.

I wonder if they'll play a back to back or wait til Friday. Guess we'll find out very shortly.

I can never make it to the game sign-up day, so I always get stuck with the little kids. The pitching is absolutely atrocious and the batters dont swing. Thankfully there's a two hour time limit otherwise I'd lose it.

I picked Hawks in 4.
My original idea was just a write up of the season and included a small vertical slideshow type deal saying One Team, and that we all knew there was one goal, and stuff like that. But I already finished the GleeDT, so that's what we get.

And thanks for the compliments.

This is what I originally started.




Maybe I'll do something like this in the future.

Bulls have Thursday booked, really no difference between Tues-Fri and Weds-Fri.

What's really NBA is these 8:30 starts. Goes completely against what this league has done historically. I am just totally shocked right now.

Two 8:30 starts as I presumed. Sunday looks like a good time to go to the official Blackhawks road watch.

Yeah, I know. The point remains though. In 3 of the 6 games, the Hawks/Coyotes series was the late game and in one of Chicago's home games, the time was moved up.

And, as I type this, I noticed two 8:30 starts in Chicago's 4 first games. That's 9:30 Eastern, which will be another late game.

I love the Tuesday game personally. It is the only weekday that I don't have a night class, so I won't miss any of the first two games.

I don't know how I'm going to watch the series...CBC picked the Hawks series, but they also picked the Leafs series and the Habs series...so I don't know how they're going to show any of the Hawks series in the Toronto viewing area

Anyone know who's bringing the Hawks-Wild series in Canada/in general? TSN, CBC? I'd assume TSN.

CBC turned down Vancouver/Sharks to pick up our series.
