Come on NHL scheduler, show some ingenuity and don't just keep Sharks at Stars Nov. 19 from the old schedule and give us Sharks at Kings Nov. 19. Raising the banner when we're there would definitely make me forget about the lockout.

On a related note, RDS is confirming Habs and Leafs for Nov. 19. This whole not releasing the schedule now is getting ridiculous. At the very least, announce and start hyping up the November 19 opening night schedule (now credible sources like TSN and co are saying it's 99% certain to open Nov 19). If RDS can announce Leafs at Habs, it's "official" enough.
November? Are you in a time warp, dude?

And why in the world would you want the Sharks to watch the Kings hoist the banner? To remind them / us, we're the last CA team to not yet win the Cup, if ever??

I'm razzled, yes.

They said they want JAN. 19 to be rivalry matchups and Sharks @ Kings makes more sense than Sharks @ Stars for a rivalry matchup.

@BruceLeVine22 Hearing from reliable sources the Stars will start the season at home on Saturday the 19th against the Phoenix Coyotes.

So if it's all rivalries (And somehow not Sharks at Wings, which is a legitimate rivalry IMHO), Sharks at Kings or Ducks makes sense.

CapGeek ‏@capgeek It appears the "cap advantage recapture" penalties will not apply to teams who traded long-term contracts prior to the new CBA.

EDIT:

If is the Sharks play either the Kings or the Ducks, who would the odd man out play? I don't really follow the Kings or the Ducks, do they have any other rivalries besides the other two?

My thought is, if that happens, it will make my blood boil (and every Sharks fan). Instantly all about the lockout would be forgotten and I'd remember my growing hatred of the Kings.

I never considered the Kings a big rival, but those final two games last season were epic, espcially the one in LA with the Clowe-gate thing and all. And seeing run through the playoffs was disgusting.

Plus I think an SC banner should be raised in front of us. Maybe it will motivate some of our boys in Teal...

Edit: Rumor is Blackhawks @ Kings. http://www.rantsports.com/nhl/2013/0...angeles-kings/

So much for "Rivalry matchups on January 19" when it comes to the Kings or Sharks. I'm guessing they want the SC banner raise on national TV (NBCSN), and don't want to just have Sharks @ Kings. The lockout isn't even officially over and the NHL is back to crapping on the Sharks. Maybe they will do Sharks @ Ducks, but that's not much of a rivalry. Not like Sharks @ Wings IMHO.

Really? I've actually been a bit of a Kings fan for years and will remain one. I like what Lombardi has done there. And they have some of my favorite non-Sharks players. They haven't quite passed the Bruins yet, but it's Sharks -> Bruins -> Kings for my 3 favorite teams.

Now the Canucks, that's a team I can hate.

Hatred in terms of rivals to the Sharks. I never really saw them as rivals to the Sharks until recently.

I like what they've done too. Ditto for the Stars. Hate the Stars (in the same usage of the word "hate"), but I think they've put together a solid team this year and I've been saying since I moved to Dallas that for the Stars to do better, they need to change the culture, and that means moving Ott and Robeiro, and they did just that.

I told some Stars fans today that I thought their team this season was "criminally underrated," but I might have been exaggerating just a tad.

Additionally, unlike most people, I myself am not a fan of other teams. There are a lot of people who do that, have multiple teams, one in the east, one in the west, etc, but for me in the NHL my one and only love is the Sharks. I refuse to be or pretend to be a fan of any other NHL team. To some extent, I "hate" everyone else. And I agree, Canucks hatred is very strong.

Kings are my 2nd favorite team, I can't wait to see them raise that banner. They absolutely earned it, the right way, and we did not. Plain and simple.

I like the Kings too. Probably helps that Kopitar's my favorite non-Shark, but I quite like them. Still not a fan of the Philly twins, but I like the rest of the team fine. They really earned the Cup.

It helps that they took out the Canucks, Blues, and Yotes on the way there. Kind of endears them to me.

About the schedule, who if any one did the sharks play on the 19th road or home.

If it is a west team you can all but guarantee that is who the sharks will start the season against.

Do you mean the original schedule? They were scheduled to play the Stars in Dallas.

Rumor on Merc news is Sharks open on 1/20 at Calgary. Yup, rumor is Sharks are the lone West team to open on Sunday, same day as NFC title game.

The NHL is back alright. You know this when the league scheduler is screwing over the Sharks in what is already a bad schedule situation for the Sharks.

Doesn't really screw them over.

Title game is at 3 ET...the Calgary game will likely be later right? Plus an extra day to prepare...we need a hot start.

Considering how road heavy the Sharks schedule is, it would make sense that they would NOT be the lone team to not start on Jan. 19. But of course the NHL likes to screw over the Sharks.

The other issue is many of us hope the Niners will be in that game. No matter how long we've been waiting for Sharks hockey, if the Niners are in that title game, win or lose, it will be very hard to get excited for the Sharks "No Thanks to the NHL" Sunday season opener. Either the Niners elation subdues the Sharks experience, or the Niner frustration just kills the Sharks experience. Basically us Niner and Sharks fans, and casual bay area sports fans, will be emotionally drained after NFC title game if the Niners are in it. Not the way you wanna be when the Sharks play their first game that counts in 10 months. Not how you want the Sharks season to start in terms of getting back fans, especially the casual fans.

And if the Niners aren't even there, well the whole buzz of Jan. 19 gets killed for us because of course the NHL had to pick the Sharks to be the one west team not to play. The excitement for Saturday isn't there for us and whatever East team the NHL screws over. I'm guessing the NHL never factored in that by cutting out inter-conference play, you couldn't have the whole league in action on any one night, especially the much hyped opening night Jan. 19. #EpicFailNHL

It would be one thing if the NHL didn't have a history of "having it in" for the Sharks when it comes to scheduling and then they pulled this, but given the history, it's more infuriating.

P.S. Have to admit though, as ticked off as I am getting on this minor issue, it sure beats not having the NHL back!

I was wondering why Shepard wasn't signed yet (or do RFAs not count?)
