So it looks like we're ending the season with a bunch of road games?

Meh. At least it beats being ****ed over by a road trip to start the season.

Those locations are reversed. 4/6 and 4/25 are home games.

So this means two Penguin games at home? I'll be at both if that's the case.

Its looking like Panthers Vs Canes Jan 19t in Sunrise. At least thats what the rumors have been. Hopefully its true, Id really enjoy seeing Carolinas new team. Definitley think they'll end up in the playoffs.

Yeah SE is going to be CRAZY this year. Caps are still the Caps, Panthers had a nice year last year with a young core, Canes revamped up front and added a lot of offensive depth, Jets added more depth, and the Bolts changed their goaltending situation around.

now you're just being crazy

but yeah as of right now I think 3 SE teams get in, and the biggest reason it's not 4 is that I think Ottawa or Buffalo will be able to take advantage of a weaker division and get enough points to keep someone out.

No word yet (would be absolute PR suicide if they didn't), but we should hear later about the vote when the memorandum of understanding is signed. I would expect both the ratification by the players and the MOU signing to be announced today.

Florida loser pointed, lucked, and overachieved their way into the playoffs and still barely got it. They lost Garrison and added Mueller. Really not much improvement. Tampa is injury prone and is starting essentially rookie/ super inexperienced goalie, maybe he works out maybe not. I'd say the Caps will be better but beatable. If there was ever a shot for our division, it's this year with Semin and Staal.

Also no one likes the Jets

Deal was just ratified by the players. Still waiting on the MOU... No schedule until it's done.

Is there any particular reason people think the Caps will be better than last year? All they did was trade out Semin for Ribeiro, right? I mean yeah now they can finally move Laich to 3C which is sweet center depth but their winger depth seems brutal to me...

They have the two best players in the world healthy for the first extended period of time since 2010.

Yeah I get the Penguins love. Basically they traded Staal for Sutter and ADDED the best player in the world.

And they've fixed their defense how? I mean, Crosby was healthy in the playoffs and look how that turned out. They even got rid of Michalek and are rumored to be looking at Gonchar. It's like they're actively trying to make their weakness worse.

From what I've seen, people are making massive assumptions that Holtby is the real deal.

Yeah, winning games 7-6 can only get you so far in a season. Eventually those games will turn the other way. That's one thing that concerns me about this team as well.

They have clearly stolen JR's idea.

Another reason I don't get Carolina getting the 5th best odds in the East to win the Stanley Cup

Didn't they make that assumption with Neuvirth as well?
