Should 'weak markets' get a disproportionate amount of home games in good days/timeslots for tickets? More Friday/Saturday night games? More Sunday and holiday matinees? Should these teams play the majority of their away games on weeknights? this of course would come at the cost of strong markets loosing some of these marquee homegames. Teams like Pittsburgh/Chicago/Philly/Washington/St. Louis/LA/Boston/New York/Toronto/Montreal/Vancouver/Calgary/Edmonton would have more weekday home games and more weekend games away. I see advantages: - revenue and attendance shouldnt change significantly for the strong markets. They'll sell out their games anyways. - revenue and attendance should improve for the weak markets would presumably improve. - TV ratings for the strong markets should improve as more hockey fans will be forced to watch the game on TV in these markets on what are already high-ratings nights. HNIC/NHL on NBC ratings should skyrocket. Disadvantages: - you piss off the STH's and especially the corporate ticket holders in the strong markets.
