Why is it that Ottawa always plays Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary twice every year? I know that we have to play 3 western teams twice per year and the rest of them once but why is it specifically those three teams? Is it to minimize travel costs?

it's because they're canadian. The 3 flex games have been used for the canadian teams to play home-and-homes every year.

expect something to change next year though with winnipeg in the west.

?.... The Canadian teams play each other twice each year now. Each team gets a home game.

I'm guessing Feb 11 is Hockey Day in Canada?

Edmonton at Ottawa 2pm
Montreal at Toronto 7pm
Vancouver at Calgary 10pm

Winnipeg with no game though.

Season opener against Detroit? Home opener against the Wild? Really?

That's remarkable, to say the least.

Good thing for us that they suck.

I'd rather play Toronto on a back-to-back than Washington or Boston.
