Not crazy about how the home-and-home thing worked out. I know it was done to make sure the eastern Canadian teams visit the western Canadian teams and vice-versa, but it is dumb. There are 3 divisions in each conference. If it is going to be 3 wild-card home and home's, it should be against the teams that finished the same place as you in their respective division. Rangers finished in 3rd, they should play 2 games against each 3rd place team from the west.
I really like this schedule. I'm already pumped for the opener against the Hawks.
I wish the November 1 at Toronto game was a little later in the year, because I'll already be recovering from a summer of buying Yankees tickets, lol, but I'm going to really try to get there. I also want to get to the game in Chicago in January if possible.
I like the fact that we play the Oilers, Canucks and Flames at the Garden..I always like watching those teams. And the Monday Night game vs. Avery is going to be great.
Plus weekends against Philly and Boston should be easy to attend.
Geez, I really don't understand the Avery bitterness. He was great when he was here. It sucks that he left, but there is no reason to boo him at all.
Yeah, I don't get it. All we did is win when he was in the lineup. I'm not giving him all the credit, but we sure played better with him than without him. Why all the hate. I loved having him on our team.
