No teams in round 1

Highest seed from round 2 plays lowest seed in round 2

It's genius

Let's just skip playoffs entirely, it's pointless!
European football format, where at the end of the season, the #1 team is crowned the champions. Everyone plays everyone an equal number of times. If we do 3 games against everyone, that's a 45 game season. If it's 4 times, 60 game season. Both aren't too crazy away from the 50 we do now.

So it'll have to be 4 divisions x 4 teams if we want to keep 50 games.

You can change the minimum games vs own division/conference and minimum games vs other conference if people don't want divisions.

Not sure how big of a deal that is for scheduling in the HO, but nobody has ever talked about it so I doubt people really care that much about that.


I tried and only 1 vs own division/conference and 5 against other conference works

Yeah but that only gives you (if my math is correct ... 7x5 + 8) 42 games. Where STHS gets fuck is how it distributes those other eight games, which creates imbalance issues. Like, really bad ones. Check out some SMJHL indexes like this one from when conferences got removed there.

EDIT: I see the typo and I'm leaving it.

Just do 4 divisions, then. I think that would be fun.

2nd in Goals (208), All-Time Assists Leader (765)*, All-Time Points Leader (973), 3rd in Hits (2587), All-Time Blocked Shots Leader (1882)*

The one thing that people seem to forget is that we can make our own schedule in a spreadsheet and upload it to STHS, sure that adds another task to the offseason, but then it just adds another piece of realism to the league. Maybe we base the 50 game schedule creation that beaver suggested to a similar idea of how the IIHF recreates divisions every season. I will come up with a mock of my idea in a bit.

You are welcomed to create the spreadsheet every season.

(ps: i had already suggested it to ho too, but didn't seems fond of it)

Im fairly sure smjhl used it for a while tho without the leaderboard breaking. @JR95 can you confirm?

I’m also pretty sure that if you import your schedule it doesn’t get extremely funky.

Maybe it's something to do with the version of the sim? Because when we did it that one season in the SHL we didn't have any stat tracking, that's why we've never done it again.

The last 5 seasons except for this one have been schedules that where made in sths, exported and then modified to move games around. Teddy had made a bunch of schedules for smjhl ahead of time, however they didnt work with expansion so this season its just an sths schedule.

No need to get complicated just to keep a 50 game schedule if you can do 52 games. That won't ruin anything.
