I guess Uncle Gary has finally had enough of helping us.....

After two consecutive SCF runs (1 of which won us a Cup), and another trip to game 7 of round 2 last year...I guess he has to draw the line somewheres.

Yeah we faced alot of teams on their second half of a B2B last year.

Oh well, Id like to know why the schedules need to be so complicated but whatev.

Id stay up and watch 3 back to back games right now if it meant something interesting was going on.
If I wasnt playing sports in the summer Id loose my mind, might have to take up watching baseball. Hell.

You see what happens when you mock Uncle Gary? He's a very fickle man... very fickle.

**** this league. I have had it! Bettman hates us and gives us no chance.



Wait, this isn't the Rangers board? Sorry.

They are the Sookie and Bill of professional sports. How long before they realize they are destined for each other and selfless denial isn't going to spare the other's feelings?

Maybe the schedule was arranged this way because Uncle Gary knew (in advance) that he wasn't invited to Sid's 23rd birthday bash?

Back to backs actually help out a lot of the time.

Sometimes, both people are just too close to it to see it clearly enough. Hopefully, they'll get wiser as they get older ... they're both still pretty young yet.

As a hockey player, I actually like back-to-backs. You get into a rhythm and even though you are tired, the couple days off in a row are really nice.

We have a young and rested team... we will be fine.

I hated back to backs. Never had enough time for my equipment to dry. They obviously dont have this problem though.

Good freakin' point though. I never wore a shirt under my pads so it would always be like 7:30am and you are putting on cold/wet equipment that smells like dog ****.

We used to bring equipment back to the hotel and set it on the heater. Those rooms had to smell like hell for months afterward.

I am guessing now that we have a new arena capable of handling and attracting many different events (concerts and such) that the list of available dates we submitted was probably much shorter than past years.
