Should periods be changed to quarters?

With the ice pretty bad in some places (notably MSG and the southern arenas) should the game be changed to fifteen minute quarters instead? Might make the pace faster as players get an extra 15 minute rest. That allows for an extra grooming of the ice. It might also give the owners a little more $$$ with more opportunity for the fans to go and get concessions. Hell, even the broadcasters would benefit as it gives them more ad time in between periods. Only lengthens the game 15 minutes (They're pretty short at about 2:20 on average per game) but makes the ice better, the play better... Probably even reduces injuries.

Thoughts?

They want to shorten the game, not make it longer. Also, this would change the very basic rules of hockey, something which is not an option right now I think.

How about turning basketball quarters into eighths? More time for me to get snacks.

3 periods.

Perfection.
