Next Season Possibly Shortened

Since NHL has currently dropped the puck on growing the sport, the Board of Commissioners have proposed drastic measures to scale back the NHL season.

NHL Network and TSN report that the NHL will shorten their season to 72 games. The worst of it is that they want to emulate Major League Baseball so much to restrict the Eastern and Western teams from playing each other. The theory is that the regional rival games bring in more fans. But NHL Network reports that the Western Canadian teams like it when the Leafs come to town.
