I'll predict it this way:

Rangers play us and the Isles five times each
Isles play the Rangers and Pens five times each
Devils play the Rangers and Flyers five times each
Pens play the Isles and Flyers five times each
Flyers play the Pens and Devils five times each

Thank god they didn't go with the 7-2 format.
Yea, I'd be surprised if we didn't play the Rangers and Flyers 5 times each with all the playoff juju from last year.

Though I can see them wanting the Flyers playing the Rangers 5x but would be tough for them to not have Rangers vs. Islanders 5x.

Interesting whether they are making this decision based on rivalries or ease of schedule making.
