Playoff Schedule - Part Deux (That's French for Two)

What scheduling option works best for the Playoffs?

Spread it out and schedule games in existing ZHL timeslots only, making each series span over multiple days. Playoffs would last 2 to 4 weeks total, depending on the length of each series.

Two consecutive Sundays, likely cramming 6 to 10 hours of Zealot Hockey into each between ZHL and Probe League. Round 1 on the first Sunday, Semi-Finals & Finals on the second.

We had a very close vote between two of the choices, and one of the choices was doubling as an option proposed by TeeKay that wasn't in the first poll. So here's round two! The top choice in this poll will be the scheduling option we use, so VOTE!!!!!

Semi Finals and Finals on the same day is so lame. Finals deserve a day all to themselves. Ez.

I agree with kurt, finals should have its own day for more hype.

If you want me to cram it into two days, which for the record I vehemently oppose, that's the only way I see it happening. We simply can't fit four Best of 5 series on the same day. Plus, because of the re-seeding after Round 1, at least two of the four teams aren't gonna know what time they play in the Semis until after Round 1 is done. That means forcing teams to sit around and wait for the conclusion of the second Round 1 series to see if they're playing next, or if they're playing in the series that starts an hour and half later or whatever. Not to mention figuring out how Probe League fits in.

That said, we'll work out the specifics of how everything fits into each day after the voting. So if you're in favor of the idea of cramming everything into two Sundays in some form or other, vote for that. We'll figure out how that dumb idea "works" later :P (I mean, just think about our poor casters!)

Options 2 and 3 are going to steal votes from each other....

After I wrote that, all but 1 of the votes from 2 got changed to 3. If that last 1 changes too, we have an exact tie. Awesome :D
