Vince Bellissimo committed to play better.
Matt Zimmer thinks the USHL season is too long. He has some good ideas, including this one that could make some sense.
Personally, I think a 40-game season would be plenty long, but since there's no way the owners would ever slash that much off, here's a modest proposal:Just a couple FYI's...
A 48-game regular season, starting around October 20, and ending around March 20.You could get the playoffs over by the end of April.
For the playoffs, take the top eight teams, regardless of division, seed them 1-8 and use a best-of-three first round, best-of-five second round and best-of-seven in the finals (or best of five in all three).

Lincoln's Patrick Johnson has signed with Wisconsin and will join the team next fall. There had been a chance of him returning to Lincoln for a second season, but coach Mike Eaves needed some more offense coming in.
