I hope the league follows through on its idea of moving the beginning of the regular season back 10-14 days. The NHL is seriously considering the move for several reasons, most notably to avoid conflict with the first round of the MLB playoffs.

One league exec told me that such a move wouldn't impact the playoff schedule because of the light early schedule. In other words, the regular season would end on the same day and the playoffs wouldn't extend any further into June.
