I called the Islanders customer service. They said tickets will be available thru ticketmaster as soon as official schedule was released. I tried to get him to confirm that would be tomorrow considering distribution of schedules by league today. However, he would only dismiss that as rumor.

So there you go.

Since I can't make the home opener (assuming it's the 22nd), I think we will make a road trip for this one

As it gets closer everyone post what jersey they're wearing so we can all tell who's who. Lol

Not so sure since every NYI fan will also want to be there I would think.

There were about 5k Devils fans at MSG for Game-4 in 2006, and near that amount @ NYI in last year's 2-1 late comeback win as well as the 7-3 loss @NYI a few seasons ago for an afternoon contest.

If I go. My white Stevens jersey will finally be "correct" to wear to a Devils game.

i went to a game on mlk day at the coliseum a couple years ago when the devils got killed 4-0. i'd say 25% of the crowd were devil fans. so 4,000 out of 16,000.

i think i'm going to bite the bullet and drive out there for the opener. hoping for a 3:00 start so i can tailgate and drink a few before the game. 1:00 is too early.

I highly doubt it.

There are two opposing forces pushing each other here.

1) It's a home opener, which usually equals a sell-out or close to it, with much of that interest from the home team's fanbase

2) A fairly large percentage of fans are just pizzed off at hockey and wont be going back to games yet.

Put those two together and I doubt it will be anything close to a "record" in terms of Devils away fans.

factor in the buzz the devils generated through last years playoffs and the fact that the hardcore fans can easily get to this game, i think you'll see a very good devils contingent in the crowd. probably 25% or so like its been of late on the island. should be fun.

Number three, there's no time 'at all' (now barely a week) to buy tickets and drop everything to plan a weekend day or night outing. We don't even know if this is going to be an afternoon or night game yet, probably afternoon but you never know.

Personally I'd rather just stay home and flip through the other games on CI (assuming they have a free preview)/NHLN in addition to watching the Devils one.

Number four, it's a holiday weekend and people already have other plans.

For instance, I'll be in Lake Placid

If you had to choose one, the home opener is the better one for a multitude of reasons.

The drive actually isn't bad really. Wasn't a load of traffic for when I went but that can vary... I lived in Matawan so about an hour and a half

Tickets are still too high. If they go down I'm grabbing a pair.
