Since the public is voting with their feet, and staying away from the express cup - isn't it time that a new format was drawn up? The superleague continues to draw large crowds, and the European league draws good crowds even though its on a weeknight (Just how many do you think would turn up if they were weekend matches?). How about we have Stanley cup style playoffs - over five matches - against the best of the European nations? For a few of weeks at the end of each season, the competition would be great. It could run aswell as the current Euro cup - with the prospect of Euro doubles up for grabs. The winning team could then play off over a series with the Stanley cup winners for the true world championship.
