Oh man that's rough. Starting things off after Europe with a road trip to Ottawa, then the west coast, then the Caps (home), Rangers (road), Pens (home) and Flyers (road)? We have a damn good shot at only taking 1 or 2 of those games in that stretch.

And I thought the start last year was bad. This could shape up to be worse

Wow, that's a pretty brutal start. And of course, our two home games before the Islanders are the Capitals and Penguins.

Looking at the Mon/Tues games (when VS usually televises), maybe Feb. 22 vs the Rangers. But I'm sure Crosby or Ovechkin are playing on that day.

I'm glad there's no NYE game to be honest, I always had other plans that day and never could attend the game. The NYD game idea sounds better, to me anyway.

I'm not so sure about that. People were saying this years draft wasn't so deep before last years draft as well and we've had a ton of people emerge. We knew about Hall, Gormley, Fowler, Gudbranson, Granlund, Campbell, Kabanov, Merrill and a few others. But we've had a lot of guys like Bjugstad, Johansen, Nino, Etem and others like them emerge this year. Next years top end is better then 07 in depth right now, and we have yet to see who all will emerge as a legit star.

Birthday game for me! I'll probably go see that one just for Brodeur before he calls it quits.

On the flip side, if we can survive that start, we finish with a shiatload at home.

My main complaint is the placement of home games. I get that this organization is cheap and in desperate need of money, but to have less than half your home games in the weekend area (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) just seems like a stupid idea.

Especially with how dependent the organization is on families and college students.

Two less weekend games than last year (18 vs 20 last year.)

I guess the league figured they were doing us a favor with the All-Star game, and took away a couple weekend dates.

I can't remember which team it was (I want to say Atlanta though), but *said team* had 33 out of 41 home games on Fri/Sat/Sun.

it may not be Atlanta, I'll look it up.

edit: it was Atlanta, but it was including 8 Thursday games. 25 Fri-Sun, 8 Thu.

silver lining is Mo will be relieved by the end of october and his replacement can start our midseason charge for the playoffs earlier and we might squeak in!

possible 5-15 start and that might be optimistic

Isn't it just grand that by the time we have our first home game we could be 14 points in the hole already?!?!?
