There won't be any games in Edmonton on the 21st unless the Oilers feel like sharing the building with Oprah

Rexall Place is a very busy building, I find it hard to believe that the league won't take advantage of the empty building on January 19th. Especially when the Oilers were already scheduled to be on HNIC that night before the lockout.

If these two games turn out to be correct, you have a solid source. Because your two picks go against everything that has been leaking from trusted sources this week.

Hope that's a bunk source. Not playing the first night of the season would be excruciating. Not to mention our first game in Vancouver is gross.

This list that tsn did is horrible... Not one Oiler is in the top 40
lists mean nothing.
proper play out of the team/players will force the Bozo Awards to update their stuff accordingly

Holy ****. Are you all children? The god damn numbers are irrelevant. If he didn't pick 99, then who the **** really cares? Or were you all deeply offended and concerned to watch Hall in 22 in OKC? Geez.

Van plays ANA on 19th. If that guy is right, we play them when they are tired.

The schedule will come out on Saturday as soon as the nhlpa vote is over. So we'll know soon enough who we open the season against I am hoping it isn't van I don't know who "that guy" is all I have heard is either cgy or col on the 19th but those are rumors

#64 is a fine number. Mikael Granlund uses it. Back in Finland we used to call him MIG-64 as in Mikoyan jet fighter aircraft. Russian Yakovlev fighter plane models are named with prefix "Yak", so Yak-64?

Damn I wish Hartikainen is heading to training camp. He deserves a shot from the very beginning of the season. You know, not those scrap games when all hope is already lost.

Elliot Friedman was on the radio Thursday. He said its probably ANA @ VAN as the late game. He said if a team is playing at home on the 19th they would have heard from the NHL already l

Not sure how anybody can claim this is for sure the opening game(s)? Didn't the NHL have a few possibilities?

Gregor said that it is confirmed that San Jose is the only team in the west not playing on the 19th.

Interesting notes. Yak-64 sounds pretty rad to me now knowing its root of meaning. Hartikainen is all but confirmed as an attendee at training camp simply because that rosteriky won't be released until Saturday or at the latest Sunday when camps officially open. I would bet the farm he will be there.

Good to hear. Wonder if that guy will actually never come back when he's proven wrong.

Saddledome is booked at 7pm, there is no way they could play the 5pm or 8pm game in Calgary, at least on the 19th.
