i could not care less about the west coast trip... i love divisional games, and am uber happy that there are more of them. the only difference i would have done with the schedule is have each division play two other divisions, one away, and the other home... instead of the home and home thing they went with. i also would have put 3 of the 8 divisiona games in the first quarter of the season and 3 of the divisional games in the last quarter of the season. similar to what baseball does.

i do not get excited to see any western teams at all... and i HATE the "well, i want to see the other players" argument. ya know what, help out the league and watch the national telecasts... you can watch them there.

i do get REALLY excited when the Devils are in town, and when the Rangers are good -- as they are this year -- those are really fun as well... those games mean more, and i'm happy to have more of 'em.
