This is a simple poll to gauge the opinions of CDC users regarding the length of NHL intermissions.

Currently, the standard NHL intermission is 17 minutes in length as outlined in the Official Rules.

34.2 Intermissions - For the purpose of keeping the spectators informed as to the time remaining during intermissions, the Game Timekeeper will use the electronic clock to record the length of intermissions. The clock will start for the intermission immediately at the conclusion of the period.

Intermissions are seventeen minutes (17:00) in length, unless otherwise notified. If there are unusual delays for any reason, (e.g. altercation, building, ice, or ice resurfacing problems) it is important to use discretion in starting the clock.

Dear lord no, for 7pm games I don't get out of the building till around 9:50 then 15 min to get out of the city and 30 back to Langley.

Just fine the way it is.

TV companies won't like it. For one, it pushes back their 9:30/10pm programming; another reason lies in potential OT/shootout scenarios where it then gets even more unpredictable.

NO.

And don't you dare give them any ideas.

I didn't realize it was only one more minute.

I am fine with it - as I usually PVR games, and then fast forward... and when I am at the game, I am in no rush to get home... so an extra 9 minutes isn't really something to worry about.

As you said, it would allow more revenue generation through concessions sales, and commercials.

Actually it would only be 6 minutes (for two intermissions plus a potential for 1 minute more before OT).

I am quite surprised that people would find this so strongly inconveniencing. Interesting.

What a great idea; maybe we could have 4 hour long games. Oh well at least if would give people like Shorty and Garrett more time to complain about the officiating etc.

Simply no, sometimes it feels forever for an intermission to end.

I watch every game from my pc, and the intermission is the worst part of the game for me. Even if I watched it in the arenas, I would rather the 17 minutes, wouldn't botter 15.

Make it shorter, and cut out the break between 3rd period and OT. No break at all. Just keep playing until the next whistle and then make it 4 on 4. I think the breaks are too long to begin with. 15 min should be maximum. 10 minutes would be ideal.
