Just curious how tickets are going to be rolled out. I'm not a STH but I really want to go to the opening game. I assume the Flyers will announce when they're going to become available, but I'm curious as to how season tickets will work.
I know a full STH and he has all of the tickets in hand. Will they reissue new ones or make them so game 1 = this now, etc? Just curious, I really don't want to miss the boat on getting some tickets.
Flyers probably start on the road then. I doubt the NHL wants a prime US market starting their season in the afternoon. With the talk of all 30 teams playing on the 19th the Florida/Phoneix/Columbus' of the world will man those slots.
I wonder whom our "rivalry" game will be with? It could be any of PIT, NYR or NJ pretty easily, but you also have to factor in whom THEIR rivals would be and, imo, the best fit would be PIT-WAS (Gary's pet forced rivalry) and NJ-NYR (rematch of last year's conference finals). As such, we are kind of left without a dance partner in-division (I really can't imagine wasting the Flyers on the Islanders).
The only other option, imo, would be BOS (rematch of the WC and the '10 playoffs) as long as they aren't playing MON (which would make sense, since I'm sure TSN wants MON-TOR as their headline game on the 19th).
