    Finally. Its a few months late but we've got hockey to watch. GO FLYERS!!

    Hmmm. I guess I just could have put 2013. Oh well. If someone wants to fix that cool, if not, fuck it.

    I'd leave it. It differentiates it from the next season that'll be 2013 too.

    Curious to see what the schedule will be. Guess they won't have those
    long off periods between games. That's a plus.

    I also think they may have a chance to dump Pronger since he seems
    to not be improving and may never play again.

    I'd put good money on him never playing again. He'd be smart not to.

    That makes sense. Good call.

    From the sounds of it you would think they would have a game every other or every third day.

    Looks like game 1 is the 19th at 3. They bumped the
    Penn State/Vermont game back to 8:15.

    Then off to Buffalo for a nooner with the Sabres.
    Early start so it doesn't conflict with the NFC/AFC
    championship games.

    Yeah, the full schedule isn't out yet.
    They are saying there should be 5 games against
    division rivals and the rest will be east conference games.

    No western conf. games to cut down on travel.
    Short schedule means they'll keep things tight.

    Can't wait to see the full schedule
    I'm hoping for a bunch of games on the old Versus channel that became NBCSports
    We started getting that on Direct TV at work a while ago
    Plus whatever games are on NHL that don't get blacked out

    Yeah, I can't imagine trying to watch a game on a phone
    can be that easy. Maybe an android tablet but I'm not going
    that route. I get all the games on tv so I'll DVR what I can't
    see live in case there's any great highlights.

    The lack of any inter-conference preview games is going to make game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals very interesting.

    And I have no problem with that. I wouldn't mind less
    games played against the west during a regular season.

    Been out of commission for a few weeks, but it's great to be back and even better that hockey is back too. Let's get this shit started!

    This is supposed to be the schedule so far.
    Plenty of game times to be determined.

    They can't buyout a player on LTIR (compliance buyout or not) because they are already getting cap relief. Pronger would have to pass a physical and be cleared by Drs to play so they could buy him out and if he could pass those why would you buy him out when he can play

    I was going on earlier rumors. There was alot of questions
    floating around before they came to terms.
    The old CBA rules meant nothing so anything
    was possible. Obviously that hasn't been changed.
