    A week? A whole week???!

    Post by wprager on Mon Oct 06, 2008 6:42 am

    I'm not sure I can wait that long. If nothing else, I'll probably forget all the new numbers in the lineup. 18 is Winchester, 45 is Picard, 73 is Ruutu. I just have to keep repeating that like a mantra for 7 days.

    OMG, I forgot Kuba. QUICK, what's his number!!!

    :D

    I think this was done primarily due to the complaints from Anaheim and LA last season with regards to the effect this trip had on them after they came back. They were pretty bagged from the travel and time zone change etc... Perhaps the leagues is giving the teams some extra time to recuperate from the travel. Do the Rangers, Pens and Lightning have the same type of time off?

    Yep, none of the teams that participated in the Euro games will play until the following Saturday.

    It's totally the right call, too. As ANA and LA found out last year, that kind of travel and time-zone change can take a lot out of you. I don't like the lay-off from a fan's perspective, but at an organizational level I totally get why they've built it into the schedule. I was worried that'd our opening 20 games would suffer as a result of the Euro games, but now I'm starting to think it might not be an issue after all.

    Yep, I totally understand why it's being done also, and i'm in 100% aggreance (is that a word? LOL) with it... I'm just glad i'll get to watch some meaningful hockey tonight finally... It's here!!! The wifey won't be too happy... oh well I will! :D

    Totally the right call is correct ... from the team's point of view. But as a fan I am allowed to Wing Dang Doodle a little.
