I don't like them.

I usually have stuff to do during the day and miss the games if they're that early.

Prefer evening games that I can actually sit down and watch.

As a European fan I obviously like them, its fun to have a few games to watch at prime time instead of staying up very late.

While I am not adverse to them. It is incredibly annoying during the playoffs when Western Conference teams play to favor EST.

Exactly what I was to write.


Even if some of the NA fans might be annoyed by this it is great promotion for NHL in Europe. By this one can see live hockey at sports-bars in Europe so that even causal fans catch up even if the didn't plan to.

I like them- love grabbing brunch before a game if Im actually attending... but ever watching from home, it just means I have more hockey to watch.

Hate them.

Hockey is meant to be watched after dinner and before bed with a few cold ones. Hate waking up and watching a game when its still light out.

It's great that European fans have an opportunity to watch games at a decent hour however for myself personally I prefer watching them at a decent hour as well. I don't mind having to catch a game in the mid afternoon but when the Oilers are playing at 11 in the morning like last year against the Islanders its just wrong.

Love them. Saturdays and Sundays are for day games. In all sports. Especially baseball and I think it's disgusting that baseball has become even more of a night sport than hockey is.

Don't like them. They're okay once a season, but I have stuff to do during the days.

Not a fan. I'm busy with chores in the afternoon and I'm set by 7.

Being an Australian, no. Games starts around 3am, compared to 9am-11am depending on DST.

In the regular season, I can take them or leave them. I do love when there are a few playoff games in the afternoon though.

Yes, but that's because I'm in Newfoundland. I usually watch Sens games starting at 8:30 or 9:00.

Kinda sucks when you go out to watch the game, and don't get home until after midnight.

Hate. Absolutely hate them.

Vibe just feels all wrong, half the time the games themselves are dumpy. And they're especially painful when i'm on the west coast, and it's less 'afternoon' and more 'before lunch'.


I should add, i totally dig it on special occasions. For 'hockey day in Canada' for example, it's nice. Or a holiday game. But as a whole, i just hate it.
