Playing overseas to start the season....

Anyone a little worried? With the travel? I mean it's not just the two games either, it's more like 4 or 5...

We all saw how it screwed up the Ducks last year.. so anyone worried?

Eh might be good to travel together with all the turn over in the line up. I think the Ducks suffered more from Missing their #1 Scorer and #1 Defensemen than the travel.

+1

I feel this trip will be like the West Point team building trip 3 years ago. The team will spend some time together, etc. Hopefully Cherepanov will be allowed to join them for the pre-season games there.

Are they playing preseason there too? Against SEL teams?

There will be many ups and down all season for every team. No worries.

I know I read somewhere that the Rangers requested ample days off in between, and when returning, and that the first game back be at home. It's not going to have the same effect on us that it had on the ducks last season.

Most of the Ducks had an abbreviated off season because of the Cup run. We have no such "problem", so I'm sure that'll take a little of the sting out of any jet lag.
