Camp starts the 12th. Blue and white game the 17th and first preseason game the 18th.
Last year I think camp opened on the 18th.
Here is a quote from an e-mail I got as a leafs insider. I can't find it on the Leafs homepage.
This is your opportunity to purchase tickets in advance of the public for the Toronto Maple Leafs Blue & White game presented by McDonald's taking place at Ricoh Coliseum on Saturday, September 17, 2005 at 1 p.m.. http://www.mapleleafs.com/images/team/players/head_kukumberg.jpgThe game caps off a week of training camp with players competing for roster spots and fine tuning their skills before the exhibition games begin. With pregame activities featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs off-ice tour, alumni signings and other activities, it's the perfect opportunity to bring the entire family down to celebrate the beginning of the season and the passion that unites us all!
So assuming camp is a week then it starts on the 12th.
It's going to be a very interesting camp this year. Seeing who shows chemistry together, where Pat puts everyone in the line-up & not to mention the possibility that always exists of someone surprising & making the team. I can't wait to finally get going again.
I think this is the first year every I think buying tickets for the preaseason blue & white games would actually be worthwhile given all the confusion over what our roster will be like, and the time off for many of the players.
