I couldn't find their schedule.

But if so, league is obviously tossing them a softy to start out.

Preseason games are typically worked out by the organizations, not the league, if I remember correctly. I think this was set a long time ago and they just finalized the dates more recently.

Nope they play Vancouver first. Their schedule was released a few months ago.

I geek out over this stuff so good to see. I like the first game at home, aka prospect heavy. This schedule is really condensed, all in 10 days and three games in a row? I still don't think the season begins until around Oct 4th.

Looks like Avs will start the year on the road. They are cannon fodder for Rags on Oct. 5th and then NJD on Oct. 7th. Home opener isn't till the 11th vs Boston.

We'll keep all the schedule stuff here, I'll update the OP when it's released tomorrow.

Didn't they open on the road in MN a couple years ago?

Full schedule released:

http://nhl.bamcontent.com/images/ass...-file/file.pdf

One very interesting portion of the schedule for the Avs:

From December 24th until January 12th, the Avs are at home. They play in Arizona on the 23rd, the come home for 6 games, and following the 6 games they have their bye week before playing in Dallas on January 13th.

Talk about a great part of the schedule for the players. Not having to go on the road for almost 3 weeks.

That's awesome for us Europeans

I looked at the schedule and saw a home and home vs Ottawa. My first reaction was hmm, that's weird. Then I realized it's the two Stockholm games

I used to love when the schedule was released, but could careless this year around knowing we most definitely will not be a playoff team.

But we do have those two games in Sweden, so there's something I guess. Going to Sweden is also the reason why we play Boston so early, so Avs don't need to go on another Eastern road trip through six or cities on the road.

The Avs have done surprisingly well in that tough eastern road trip at the start of the season in the past (even last year, winning at pittsburgh and Tampa). I don't think we'll be as fortunate this year and will come to Denver for the home opener at 1-2 or 0-3.

Home opener is on a Wednesday, Broncos play a Thursday nighter at home against the Raiders on Thursday and then the Avs have another game Friday. I wasn't going to spend any amount of money following this team somewhere after the disaster of last season but that might be too good (and easy) of a trip to not plan.
