I don't know if anybody's interested, but I heard the idea on Jason Gregor's show last night to start up a website lobbying to change the schedule. I put up a petition on my website, but I don't think enough interest will be generated from a thread on an Oilers site.
We could do something similar to voteforrory.com, if enough people supported it. I'm thinking that it would really just be a petition. I don't know if enough people are interested to put up a dollar to support the site, or if it's a good idea at all, but I think we could make a difference if the site really got going.
If anybody in particular really wants to run with it, I'd be more than happy to design the website. I'm not sure if I have enough space on my computer to support the files, but it'd be really easy to transfer the files.
Well, more sellouts I would think. Plus, travel is cheaper, and the shorter distance to travel means the schedule is easier. Players aren't gone from home for as long.
Thank the Leafs for thinking of the league or at least other teams (ie., Western Canadian teams) other than themselves. Ottawa was open to change, they just didn't like returning to the old schedule. Montreal's vote was motivated purely by their own needs.
Toronto's management/ownership showed they cared about the league in the vote. Too bad Montreal didn't.
