What are your thoughts on this?

While I know they are trying to shorten the length of these games and perhaps keep the attention of the marginal fan, I seem to think that they are really draining these players during the overtime sessions. I really believe they could use that nice little 2-2.5 minute TV timeout to catch a breather.

Plus, they are losing potential advertising revenue.

There should be one TV timeout halfway through the period.

Are they really that afraid that they'll lose that many viewers if they throw a commerical on the game?

It seems to me as if Overtime is the one point at which they are least likely to lose attention...
