An interesting schedule to say the least, in large part because it is an Olympic year. Every team will find some reason to moan and complain. The Blue Jackets get no favors because they are an eastern time zone team playing in the west, so what else is new, it has been that way since we have been in the league.

I like the part of the schedule where we have many Saturday dates at home, these are prime games and it is about time Columbus gets its fair share. These weekend games should be great for attendence.

While we can complain about the schedule, it is nice to have so many home games down the stretch.

The bottom line, no matter the schedule, is for the team to win more games. No excuses, the schedule is what it is.

I don't really have complaints about the schedule. We have tough stretches but I also think that we have opportunities to take advantage of the schedule.

You're counting them wrong. Last year we had like 20 back-to-backs, which would be 40. I think the year before we had one or two more than that.

This year we're probably on the low end if we only have 11. If I recall correctly, I think the fewest last year was 8 or 9.

Our division is being talked about as one of the most improved in the league for the coming season yet Detriot has lost a couple of talented players. It's been a decade of Detroit domination in the central, perhaps a change is coming.. Not us per se' but Chicago with us mopping up.

In any event we will be in the mix as long as we win. The October schedule is not easy, it will be a true test of the changes Howson has made and the Hitchcock system. Winning on the road is the most difficult thing to do in the NHL and an indicator of playoff potential.

We will see....

Good news! The schedule's somewhat incomplete; that six-game road trip in late November/early December is broken up, for example.

Bad news? It's by ANOTHER back-to-back. I went through the Yahoo Sports feed on my Google Calendar and I count twelve:
Oct 24-25 (@Anaheim, @LA)
Nov 4-5 (San Jose, @Atlanta)
Nov 23-24 (@Rangers, @Montreal)
Nov 30-Dec 1 (St. Louis, @Chicago)
Dec 9-10 (Florida, @Nashville)
Dec 14-15 (Nashville, @Minnesota)
Dec 28-29 (Detroit, @Islanders)
Jan 7-8 (@Edmonton, @Calgary)
Jan 18-19 (St. Louis, @Philadelphia)
Mar 8-9 (@LA, @Anaheim)
Mar 19-20 (Minnesota, @Nashville)
Mar 27-28 (Islanders, @Chicago)

Lovely. I wonder how that compares to the rest of the league.

I am considering trips for both or either Nashville games 11/21 or 3/20 both are saturday games.

Sucks that we play in Chicago and Detroit both times during the week. Can't get out of work to go to those, would be nice though.

Great post breaking down travel for each team.

It shows number of back-to-backs.

The most this year is 19: Chicago, New Jersey, and New York Islanders
The least this year is 11: Ottawa and Edmonton

We have 12. How's that for a little bit of respect, finally?

We have the biggest drop in back-to-backs at -8. Colorado's increases +8.

11/21 at Nashville is definitely up there on my list. I like going to road games earlier in the season; less on the line = less pressure. And less chance of my being baited into a fight

That's good to see the back to back's reduced, but the 3 games in 4 nights are worse and we had plenty of those last year. I wonder how many we have this year.

According to PecaFan on the mains, the CBJ has 19 games that involve 3 in 4 days. Buffalo and Florida have the most, 23, and the Pens have the fewest, 12. There's more good info at:

Great. Thanks. 19 seems like a lot still. I will have to inquire about how many we had last year.

He had a link to his prior analyses in that thread. Last year's is at http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=537220

We had 18 last year, with the leaguewide range being from 10 to 21. So we added one 3-in-4, but the range went up two 3-in-4s on average, so we very very slightly came out ahead.

So I was cruising over on the Sharks board and someone mentioned that their home opener was against us. So I did some digging...

We get to play in 4 (yep, count 'em 4) home openers:

Ours 10/3 vs Minny
Vancouver's 10/5
San Jose's 10/8
and Phoenix on 10/10

I didn't realize the CBJ had gone 7-9-3 in the second night of back-to-backs last season, until reading taht article on the schedule in the local rag Thursday.

7-9-3, in the second night of back-to-backs. Your CBJ.

Seems ike just a season or so ago when those games were phoned in.

COLUMBUS, OHIO – The preseason game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Pittsburgh Penguins, originally scheduled to be played at Mellon Arena on Friday, September 25, has been moved to Tuesday, September 15. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. The change was made because of a conflict with the G-20 Summit, which is scheduled to be held in Pittsburgh September 24-25.

I'm glad there's only one meeting between the Jackets and the Flyers, when the Jackets arrive in Philly 1/19. We don't want to see Tollefsen turn Boll into a pile of meatballs

But The Wolf is now a Flyers fan, maybe he should get his butt outta here

...wait, you mean we're actually getting something positive and constructive on these boards as a result of dropping OKT?

Damn, Howson's even better than I thought.

I was hoping for a Florida road trip around New Year's. I would've taken it with them, as I'll be there anyway. Alas, none forthcoming.
