that schedule is not the schedule anymore, some games will stay but it has to be redone if you notice that is only 41 games for the Rangers so it isn't the real schedule, guessing in the next day or so the real one will come out.

I think they have to ratify the deal first and decide if they want a 48 or 50 game season. NHL.com still has the remaining games from the original schedule on it.

Just a note, the schedule currently on NHL.com is the old schedule from the beginning of the year and is not official. That one still has the Rangers playing Western Conference games which we know will not be apart of the new schedule.

I'd expect a schedule to come out in a few days, first game will probably be a marque game like Rangers v. Flyers.

Believe the schedule will be released later today or tomorrow. I would think tomorrow is a safer bet. Give them some time after the marathon session of last night/this morning.

Pretty sure they already had both a 50 and 48 game schedule ready to go...just need to finalize which will be used.

They might as well use the 50 at this point. It's more revenue for them.

True, but reading they will start training camp wednesday or thursday. Lebrun had said last night that 50 gamer would start on 15th and 48 gamer on 19th. If they are starting camp wednesday or thursday, no chance do they start the season on the 15th.

That is what LeBrun was saying last night. Think they are just still thinking about the logistics. Wont start camp until everything is ratified and approved, so not sure the 50 is practical. They are trying NOT to extend the regular season, unlike in 95 when the regular season went all the way until may 2nd or so.

True, but you need to allow the teams/players some kind of camp. Unless they can push the end of the season back another few days (when is it expected to end now anyway) it might make more sense to go with 48. Plus, the schedule works out more easily with 48.

7 games x 4 other teams in your division - 28 Games
1 Home and Away against 10 teams in the other two divisions in your conference - 20 Games

Total - 48 Games, all intra conference.

That's supposed to be the schedule, with opening night on January 19. We'll find out pretty soon if that's the case.

also, Knicks only have 3 home games in January after the 13th, one is an afternoon game. St Johns has 2 games at MSG and there is one concert. I suspect they will open with a bunch of home games early.

I think they will really want to have the Rangers open up against a big rival such as Devils, Islanders, or Flyers. There is no better way to get the fans back on board with hockey then to have your team play a big game right off the bat.

It really does not matter with whom they open. People will be pumped regardless.

I really hate this idea of playing a majority of your games in-division. What's going to wind up happening is that the Atlantic is going to wind up beating the crap out of itself (even the Fishsticks play everyone pretty well), and where we might end up with a huge point total and wrapping up a playoff spot earlier if we can play lesser Northeast/Southeast teams, instead everyone is going to get crunched into a smaller range of point total for the season and the superior Atlantic is going to have SOMEBODY get screwed. I just hope it's not the Rangers losing home-ice (or god-forbid a playoff spot) to someone like the Lightning because they have 28 games against the Caps/Canes/Jets/Panthers... while we get 28 against the Flyers/Pens/Debs/Fishsticks.

I think you are overrating that concept. The other divisions will beat each other up, too.

Anyone have an idea when the regular season will end? If the trade deadline is expected to be in early April, I'm assuming the regular season will end mid-May. That sound about right?

I think it works out much better for a 50 game schedule. 5 games a piece in division and 3 each against the other 2 divisions. Much more fair considering you are competing for playoff spots against those 2 divisions

That would make for a very late trade deadline...with only about a dozen games to go. Guess we'll find out soon.

I'm just hoping we don't play in LA opening night. Would be bitter seeing the banner being raised up after being so close.

If there are no inter-conference games (as has been speculated) we won't have to worry about that.

a dozen game would be 25% of the season. In the past it has been less.
