Provided we get a 55/48 game schedule. What team do you guys want to see as the home opener ?

It will likely be a Western Conference team, or division team.

If I am the schedule maker, I put the Nucks/Kings for the banner raising game....Talk about bad blood.
I think Bettman's drop dead date is 12/17. I have a feeling all along that was his goal. That if he couldn't strong arm the players by then, he'd negotiate. That gives the players the 10 day min. camp and a 55 games or so season beg around Jan 1.
I read somewhere that Bettman has a new schedule set and it would be interdivisional and conference only.
Also, there was a rumor that the nHL is thinking about (if the deal is done this week) starting Jan 1 and having a hockey day of sorts, where there would be 4 Nationally televised games , 2 games per conference with marquis rivals. You would think the Stanley Cup champs would round out the night ,say 9 pm start and the Canucks would be the obvious choice.
