We play 2 division opponents 5x and the other 5 teams 4x.

The only way we would be in Tampa 3x is if they were 1 of the 2 five game opponents and they and the home advantage that year.

balls

i think the 15/15 conference plan had it at 6 games at one point for all division opponents... or I read something wrong at some point, and imprinted it in my happy cortex

Not surprised with the back to backs. Another condensed schedule due to the Olympics. From what I've heard it's a pretty long break.

I'd say the fact that the Sabres don't play between February 6 and February 26 supports that

12 NBCSN games. One NHLN-US game. A handful of three-game road trips and home-stands, with longest trip at five games in late March. Close the season with 12 of 17 on the road.

I think we had something like 9 back to backs in 2011-2012.


EDIT: alright looks like it's a franchise low, whatever.

It's not bad. Just commenting on there will be only so much accommodation with be schedule due to the break. Weekends, back to backs etc. just a general comment on my part.

After a home game vs San Jose on Feb 28, the Sabres play 22 games to finish the season. Only 7 at home.... 15 of 22 games to end the year are on the road!

No it's awesome, what sucks is that the games in LA and Anaheim are on Thursday, Friday and I can't make them and the game in Phoenix is on Thursday and I can't make it.

When Florida leaked their schedule it was only 2 games. Tampa bay would likely only be 2 as well.

to play H-H with the 14-16 format:

28 games interconference(2)
24 other division (3)
30 within division (4 games against each + 2 extra division games)

Not true----they actually started the season a wek earlier than normal and it ends a week later than normal. theus the number of days for the season isnt constrained.


My schedule observations....

They have 3 different western (MT/PT) trips. Unsure how that compares with other teams.

Other than the western road trips and the florida trips they have....
1. WPG/MIN
2. CBS/PIT
3. CAR/NYI
4. MON/NASH (in conjunction with their western canadian trip)
5. STL/DET/PHL
6. NYR/BOS

they play at dallas on one of their florida trips.

they go 11 of 15 on the road before(#4,5,and 6) the season finale at home.

In terms of back to back games the worst tandem appears to be STL/DET. the others are closer travel or they are H/R R/H but the distance appears to be less than DET/STL. Other issue with STL/DEt is its going central to east..thus lose an hr. Slightly easier if it was DET/STL


Other oddities...

When you are playing teams only 2 times you think you want to spread out those meetings. There are a few that are short.

Before their CA road trip they play anaheim then right after they return they play LA. both games done in about a week.

they do home and home series with toronto, boston, and Ottawa. Detroit almost is one but they play PHL inbetween.

No you're correct. The original 4 conference lineup proposed that each team would play a majority of games inside the conference of 8 or 7 teams, and only 2 games (1 home, 1 away) vs teams in the other 3 conferences.

So in a 7 team conference, it would have been 6 games each vs the other 6 teams in the conference (36 games), and 2 games each vs the other 23 teams in the league (46 games). 46+36 = 82 game full season.

That plan was voted down by the NHLPA however.
