Finally get to go to The Rock. Missed out in October when I was in NYC thanks to the lockout.

Spent the majority of today fine tuning my vacation. So awesome!
Awesome man! Enjoy your trip!

I keep forgetting about the outdoor game. I'm gonna try to make that if it's only for a weekend. I was planning a random weekend trip with my buddy down here. We came up on a random weekend in February 2012 and the Devils happened to be playing the Lightning (Marty St Louis hat trick game) so I'd like to do another one, not including the Yankee Stadium game.

God damn, I just realized the Devils/Hawks game is the same week as the Packers/Bears game which I plan to go to. I have no idea how I'm gonna pull off both of those in a 6 day span but there's no way in hell I'm passing up on seeing the Devs play live for the first time in 10 years. My bank account is gonna be hurtin heading into the new year.

22 back to backs? Are you freaking kidding me? That is more than half the games.

And Metropolitan? And another division is now the Atlantic division?

I want to have the same stuff those idiots in the league office smoke.

All the back to backs looks bad, but if you look at who they're against, at least they don't have much travel between games. They have two home/away splits with each of the Caps, Pens, Isles, Sabres and Canes. Plus they have two back to backs with both games at home, and road back to backs against Edmonton/Vancouver, Anaheim/Los Angeles, and Tampa Bay/Florida.

Great chance for Schneider and Marty to split most of them.

Agreed on the name though, strongly dislike the 'Metropolitan division' name...

Teams typically get worn down when the play a lot of back of backs.

It's not a coincidence we have ten more than the Raggies.

More back to backs means more days off in-between games that aren't back to back. How many 3 in 4 nights do we have?

I think the back to back games get a bit overestimated. For sure, you're not as fresh as you would like to be, but it's not like these guys aren't used to it. Growing up playing youth, juniors, college, etc., teams routinely do 2-3 games per weekend, with some having as many as 5.

It's not like I'm ok with so many, but the players are accustomed to it.

When the other team is rested and you are on the 2nd half of a back to back its a disadvantage.

Just put a jar in your closet and put $10 in it every week. You won't notice that, and that way you won't be hurting as much in January.

That will lead to lots of Red & Black in the stands for all 3 games.

I think I will definitely be making at least one trip to DC too. Two of the games there are on Saturdays.

I'm thinking of that too. It's about the only NHL arena in road-trip distance I've never been to.

I'll probably go down as well. I was planning on going down for the season opener last year but we all know what happened there.

When I went to the third of the three games on the Island last year (the game where we lost 5-1), there was around 5,000 or so Devils fans there.

Remember how we never took much stock in Division titles since the Stanley Cup and a banner of that only mattered?


yeah. Nothing's really changed, tbh.
