Plus, am I the only one who is a tiny bit excited about a 44 game season ( 6 vs the division + 2 vs the conference?) that is going to be a heck of a lot of good hockey crammed into 4 months. Habs and Leafs at home 3 times in 4 months... yes please.
It will be a good season with all games being important. That said, this was the year that the Bruins are in CGY and EDM and now who knows when I'll see them here again.
