For most of you I commiserate for the reasons you prefer 7:30. My wife is not a huge Leaf fan so the comprimise is I watch the first period or 2 and we move on (unless we have an unbelievably good game going on).  So I do prefer the 7 start for that reason.
The problem with the 7:30 start is it is morphing into a later puck drop. The other night the puck was not on the ice until 7:40 or after.
Funny but when we go out west for the winter the puck drops at 5 or 5:30PM and the game is over by the time normal prime time is on.  My wife doesnt mind that so much.

I like the 19:00 start times.

20:00 was too late for HNIC back in the day.  My kids couldn't stay up to see the whole game.  Now, my Grandkids can actually make it to the end of the game.  1 hour makes such a difference!

I can live with 19:30 start times, but, I still prefer the 19:00 starts.

Poor Arn is awake at midnight for the start of most games, I fee his pain, I did the same for the first ten years I followed the team and missed no more than a handful of games a season. :p

Haha, I only just found this part of the board and specifically came in to complain cos the 7.30 starts have continued this year and that extra half hour with ceremonies means some games aren't finishing til well after 3am which cuts me down to 4 hours sleep when I've work the next morning, but sure that's the price you pay...

I guess I'll just have to emigrate.
