...I just checked the Oilers' schedule on their website, and all it is showing for televised games so far are the games CBC and TSN are covering. Sportsnet will be picking up the rest, either on Sportsnet West or Sportsnet Oilers. I think last season Sportsnet covered every other game not covered by one of the national networks.

It's quite obvious TSN gets dibs on the Sunday-Friday games so once they get their broadcast schedule set with the powers that be, Sportsnet regional broadcasts will get the rest. So, seeing how the Flames play at 5:00 on the 20th and the Oilers game isn't until 7:00 and neither game is on TSN, I'm gonna make a bold prediction and say the game will be on Sportsnet Oilers.

I didn't check to see if anyone posted this or not, but the Canucks play the Ducks in Vancouver the night before. Hopefully the kids will be able to skate circles around them since most of the Canucks roster hasn't played a game since Game 5 last spring.

Just saw an interesting tidbit from Bob McKenzie.

It only takes 6 pro games to burn a year off an ELC now.

That means there's only a 5 game try-out rather than the last CBA's 9.

I'm pretty sure that's just for this season due to it being abbreviated.

Good point. I didn't think of that.

Somehow I keep forgetting this is a shortened season.

Check out the Oiler Arrival Thread.

Lots of Horcoff discussion in there.

has anybody seen an official sportsnet schedule yet? the oilers website has the TSN and CBC games, but doesn't have the sportsnet games yet... i know that most of the rest will be covered by sportsnet, but there is usually 1 or 2 that aren't picked up for some reason, and i like knowing which games those are in advance

Dear Leader is back, at least for an interview on the oilers website.

Why would it be a big shock... They have the biggest TV market and probably the most fans of any team in Canada. Pretty expected and logical if you've ever watched hockey..

9 game road trip

http://www.nhl.com/ice/schedulebysea...F2013&team=EDM

Grueling 9 game roadie starting Feb 25 vs Chicago ending Mrch 12 vs Colorado. Going to make or break their season and still if in contention 3 games vs Anaheim and the Flames late in the season will also be critical. I checked the other Western Conference teams that the Oilers will be competing for a playoff spot with and only the Ducks seem to have anything close. Nobody yet has a schedule with a 9 game road trip but I haven't checked all 29 yet. This must be when the stupid rodeo is on.

Both TSN and the Leaves are owned by the same company as well.
