WooHoo! Can't wait for the HNIC schedule to see how many appearances the Habs will make that aren't against the Leafs! Hopefully they show the Pens game on March 18th!

Seeing my Beloved Habs at MSG

Just check out the schedule, and the Habs play the Rangers on the 6th (Ranger's home Opener) and the 31st of October!

I work two blocks from Madison Square Gardens, so I'll catch both of those games!!

I will also go and see Sid the kid and the Lightening for sure, the rest I will pick and choose!

HOCKEY'S BACK AND I'LL BE SEEING LES BOYS LIVE.... YEEE HAA!!!!!!

- 13 times we play back to back, but 6 happen in Oct/November and 9 happen before the Olympic break on Feb 11.
- No games outside the Eastern Timezone after January 19th.
- 14 of last 20 games at home.
- We play home to the Pacific division and the NW Division on the road.

If we can do well up to the Olympic break, the relatively easy schedule after January schedule is going to be great for us down the stretch.

I can't recall the last time we had an easy (travel and games wise) schedule after January. It always seemed like we were playing 11 of 13 on the road on the West Coast come March and April.

So I am relatively happy about the schedule.

Season opener against Boston is nice, and starting the season with the Rangers, Leafs, and Sens after them will sure get my hocky blood pumping. Sid the Kid comes to Montreal on January 3rd (though we can see him in PItts on November 10th first) and March 18th. The Leafs play two games here on March 23rd and March 25th. That's gonna be pretty crazy.

I can't wait! Oh, and three games against the Bruins in April! And two against each of Buffalo and Ottawa! That's where we'll win the division

See you there.

Might as well enjoy this one, since they probably won't be around for another three years.

14 out of the last 20 home games, to me, is critical. That's probably where it will be won or lost (it = a playoff spot).

The NHL has gone with a new schedule system to limit travel, so all teams have greatly reduced travel and there's more games versus conference and division rivals. I'm all for that, 100%. Bring me more games against the Leafs, Sens and Boston --> those should be gold mines of excitement.

The new schedule structure is a smart marketing plan by the league: hopefully they can ratchet up the marketing further to develop the rivalries amongst teams.

Save some tickets for me. That's the only time I can fly up to see the Habs at home and make it worthwhile.

I was reading the comments over at rds and a guy made an interesting point about intra-divisional play.

Montréal will play 8 games each against the Bruins (2nd), Maple Leafs (3rd), Senators (4th) and Sabres (9th).

In comparison, Tampa Bay will play 8 games each against the Thrashers (10th), Hurricanes (11th), Panthers (12th) and Capitals (14th).

So basically, in 40 games, the Canadiens' opponent will be better than the Lightning's.

So tell me how do you know what these teams are going to be like in the new NHL? Teams are going to change quite a bit

For me it's a fairly safe assumption that the Northeastern division will be stronger than the Southern division. In any case, I'm not denigrating those teams, I'm just copying a point that was made somewhere else about the varying strenghts of divisions and the impact on the schedule.
