The 'Around the NHL' GDT was introduced during the 2010-11 season. Ever since then, during the preseason and regular season, we have had two different GDTs in a 7-day span. One for 'Week' (Monday to Friday) and the other one for 'Weekend' (Saturday to Sunday). This is something that we have rolled with for the last seven years or so. But this year, I'm thinking about changing the format so that there is only one GDT for each week (Sunday to Saturday).

 

I have created a poll which will decide which format we will go with for the upcoming season.

 

Let me know what you guys think.

 

Poll will close on Friday, September 15, 2017.

I would almost prefer daily, but I get that's a bit much for a subforum, so I choose week and weekend.

The problem with having it daily is that, on average, we wouldn't see each thread reaching more than a page. The average number of pages we saw last season with the current format was 1-2 pages.

I like one per week. I'll often see a weekend thread being used even once the week thread is up, and vice versa.

 

Having fewer threads keeps the discussion in one place, and is less work too.

I went with the week and weekend thread option. I can go with the other option as well but I feel like weekend games will have more hype since there's nights Canucks don't have games weekends and we can use the weekend thread as a GDT for other teams playing on say the Saturday and the Canucks not having a game till Sunday and vice versa or Canucks not having a game on a weekend at all

Just one is needed honestly.

I voted just one GDT. Probably not enough traffic to warrant 2.

But, if it went Sat to Fri instead of Sun to Sat, the HNIC games would always top the thread and those are the games most people watch.

Just a thought.

Weekly but Monday to Sunday. In my mind the week begins when the workweek begins.

But officially in North America, isn't Sunday considered the start of the week?
