Rangers to open 11-12 season in Europe?

I don't know if there's a thread about this or not but...

Pierre LeBrun says that the Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals, Buffalo Sabres, New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks are the teams asked by the NHL to participate in the games in Europe but haven't agreed yet.

"For the Rangers, Kings and Ducks, it would be a second go-around at the Premiere Games. The Rangers opened in Prague against Tampa in October 2008, while the Kings and Ducks played the first Premiere Games in London, to kick off the 2007-08 season.

It makes sense for the Rangers to go again since Madison Square Garden, undergoing impressive renovations/improvements next summer, won't be ready for the Rangers until mid-October, a source said Saturday."

I agree it makes sense since the renovations won't be complete but I hate it when they do this since it screws up our schedule. Thoughts?
