In tournament play I could see it with 20 minute periods, but for an extra five minutes in the regular season when you only get one for 60 minutes it just doesn't make sense.
    I'm sure a large percentage of games going to OT have all their goals within the first 55 minutes. By giving the timeout, a team is more likely to set up something for a better chance to win, instead of saving the timeout on the chance that they'll need it in OT.

      Why do we have two threads on this?

        I do not like this change. I suspect it will be far more common for teams to call timeouts to rest tired players after long shifts+ icing as a way to prevent momentum shifts at critical junctures. I also fear we will all have to endure two timeout stoppages every OT since hey, the teams got ‘em.

        On another note, if they truly wanted to speed the game along more quickly they would do away with those awful “tv timeout” stoppages for every game regardless of television presence.

            Those aren't going away. At most they'll put the TV time on the clock and count it down like the Big Ten is starting to do in football, but football also has coaches trying to fit in a last few words. In hockey, it seems like everyone is usually in their spots ready-to-go, just staring at the light. There aren't really any pace of play issues to clean up.

              While most games are not on TV most are streamed lived. Those timeouts allow commercials to help pay for the streaming. Last season I watched BU games (men's and women's) played at Maine, Northeastern, BC, UNH and other schools that stream for free and if the timeouts help pay for the streaming I have no problem sitting through them when I am at BU games.

                Point taken but isn't it possible for at least some of those commercials/promos to be aired during stoppages for other things like replay reviews, injuries, etc? One of the great strengths of hockey is long stretches of continuous action but that's being steadily chipped away, to the detriment of the game, IMO.

                    The media timeouts ensure that all games are played under the same rules. The rule came to the forefront in the days of the CCHA and old WCHA where schools like Michigan and Minnesota played their mostly televised games under one set of rules while games at Michigan Tech or Ferris State or Faibanks under another. It also gives your smaller market media markets an opportunity to generate revenue, which needed when you have to buy plane tickets to Alaska from Marquette or Sault Ste Marie.

                      You have no idea how many timeouts you’ll have for injury or replay and you never know how long they’ll last when they occur.

                        There's no guarantees that what you're referencing are going to happen. And if there's going to be visuals with commercials, when it comes to their viewing vs. live viewing, let me ask you this: How many of you saw Phil Verchota's goal vs. Finland during the 1980 Olympics? TV viewers in the US certainly didn't, and take a wild guess as to why. Video's here to stay, otherwise interest in the sport goes to the john. have to figure what's the most important.

                          In our league, at least. Not sure they do that in all of them.
