48 games starting January 19th. 18 games against division opponents with the other 30 against the remaining 10 teams in your conference. No cross-conference games (fucking gay).
Not going to lie, I can really see the Wings having a shot at missing the playoffs this year with this schedule after 21 years in a row. That is going to be brutal for Detroit and Columbus. They get to play 26 games in their own time zone (24 home, 2 road @ each other). Can't wait for realignment next year. Really rooting for the 3 or 4 division format with top 16 teams getting in.
Don't think so
Someone thought Iggy was Aboriginal? Really? Considering he's been totted as the best black player to ever play the game, I think people would have realized, you know, hes black.
And yea, no pre season. Camp and straight into the season. And really, conference only games? Man.. that sucks. Only chance I get to see the Leaf's play is when they come out west.
I'm against realignment as well with the suggestions that were made in the past, but they do need to swap Winnipeg and Nashville or something.
WTF? The Leafs apparently just fired Burke. Why the fuck would you fire your GM just before the season starts and not, I don't know, during the 4 months of fucking lockout?!
Toronto Maple Leafs have apparently fired Brian Burke as general manager. Working on official confirmations.
(This is like the millionth time I have wondered this, but why does this message board system not have a Tweet plugin code of some sort?)
