Wow do we only play central and NW teams? I swear I saw pacific teams maybe once or twice. That's a lot of travel.
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.
