Worst stretch is from March 16 to 24. 6 games in 9 night. 2 sets of 3 games in 4 nights.
Just have to qualify for the playoffs. Chicago and LA weren't much of a reward for finishing 1st overall. Without Kesler for January and part of February is going to hurt. Hopefully, the team stays focussed if a Lu deal isn't completed early in the season.
Also hope that a couple of young players develop like Kassian, Tanev, Schroeder, KConn, or whomever. Need to start seeing what Gillis' draft picks can do. Time for them to make the next level.
Kinda seems like a good season to maybe have two outstanding goalies? Maybe? Maybe?
It's great that there won't be any games on SN Vancouver this season. The big downer is only one of Sat. games in LA is on HNIC. The other is on Sportsnet, both should be on HNIC since it is the Stanley Cup Champs.
