2013 schedule... Starting at home or away?
 
Now that the lockout is over, the particulars of getting a season started neet to be worked out. Given the pending sale/ownership announcement in Phoenix, one could presume that the league/owners will want ***** in seats at Glendale as soon as possible. Is it realistic to think that the Coyotes will start the abbreviated season on a home stand?

If they wanted to get people in the stands, they would make sure they had as many Saturday home games as possible.

I do wonder just how few games FSA will bother to pick up this season. 48 game schedule, and how many should we figure are actually on television locally? 30?

This will be a challenge. Though they did mention it during the Suns game tonight.

I'd honestly be shocked if they had as many as 30 on FSA proper. I'd bet most all of the games are televised, but on FSA+; which is about as good as not being televised at all.

With no owner yet I fully expect the Coyotes to have the worst schedule of all the teams.

Our first home game will be in March.

I hope the home opener is on a Saturday or Sunday, or even Tuesday. Those are my only days I can go now. =( Makes me a sad panda.

awfulwaffle 01-07-2013 10:56 AM

FSA doesn't give a crap about the Coyotes. Understandable though because the Coyotes don't make them any money. Hell, last year there was a game on DirecTV that wasn't even available in HD. I understand it was an added game late in the season, but still, in today's day and age how a local team can't get an HD broadcast of an away game is just REDICULOUS.

The way our schedule has been the last few years I won't be surprised to see us having to fly into town before every single game of the season, no home stand longer than one game.

It looks more than likely that no interconference games will take place in the regular season.

My only hope is the Coyotes don't play the Kings in LA on the night they raise their banners as that would be major salt in the wounds.

The ticket holders just got this email:

Once the CBA is ratified, we will move quickly to ensure that you receive all the necessary information about your tickets and account and a copy of the new revised NHL schedule so that you are ready for Coyotes hockey at Jobing.com Arena. We expect that the 2012-13 season will begin on Saturday, January 19 but that is the only information we can share at this time.
I vote to start at home.

I've never been to a banner raising ceremony. Would they wait for a weekend home date to do it or just the first home game no matter what day of the week? It might be a better move to have it on a weekend due to the historical low turnout for weekday games (I hope that changes soon).

That sounds somewhat promising, I'm going to be in town from the 21-25 and would love to catch a game while I'm there. Thanks for the info! Now, if only fate can find a way to have the Oilers in town for that game....:sarcasm:

Not sure I like the sound of that set up:

Each team plays: 4 games vs. two Divisional opponents (8); 5 games vs. two divisional opponents (10); 3 games vs 10 Conference rivals (30).

As others reported, looks like season is maximum 48 games starting Jan 19 with camps opening no later than Sunday Jan. 13, if all goes well.

GiveAFlyingPuck 01-08-2013 03:49 PM

Saw something on Twitter saying we'd start on the road against Dallas on the 19th. If that's true, I'd go for 3 road games and then back here for a home opener on Sat. the 26th.

Naurutger 01-09-2013 02:35 PM

Grumblings of a Jan. 20th game at home. Nothing official, me no like but will wait before I blowup.

My son would be extatic over that. First the latest episode of MLP and then the game, would make his entire week.

Naurutger 01-09-2013 02:52 PM

I should also add my issues with a start on the 20th. It will be competing with the NFL. A start on the 19th would only be competing against college basketball; the hype for the banner drop would be 2X's more.

Not just competing with the NFL, competing with the NFL during conference championships. That would be foolish in my opinion!

gra 01-09-2013 05:26 PM

I wouldn't be surprised by such a move seeing how the team manages to still get screwed on national tv exposure in the regular season despite the drive to the WCF as demonstated in the full season schedule of 12-13 that has now been cut in nearly half.

awfulwaffle 01-09-2013 06:26 PM

Just yet another hurdle for this team. Nothing to see here if they are competing against the NFL.

Coyotes will open the season on the ROAD against DALLAS Jan. 19th then return HOME to play CHICAGO Jan. 20th

My source works for the Coyotes in player personnel... times have not been set and these games COULD change but im told it is as good as set in stone at this point. Just working on times now.

That blows!

Naurutger 01-09-2013 07:55 PM

Well if Sundays game is at 6 or 7 I could work with it since Monday is a holiday. A 3 start would be difficult.

amjay13 01-09-2013 09:35 PM

So no MLK Day late afternoon home game? Boooooooooo!
