Checkers Announce Opponents and Format for 2010-2011

Recommended Posts


http://gocheckers.com/new...ndex.html?article_id=235

As a new AHL fan, since we didn't have one close by and it was hard to follow the Rats from afar, I wasn't familiar with the way they do their scheduling.  I was going to comment on how weird it was to play some teams 4 times, some teams 6 times and the "closest" team 8 times, when it dawned on me, these guys go by bus, so they schedule based on travel.  Makes sense.  Only 40 games, I'm kinda surprised the season is that short, but playing essentially half of the league (no west coast teams) they would end up playing each team 12 times otherwise. 

Go Checkers!

Dude...it is an 80 game schedule. 40 Home + 40 Away = 80 Total. Last year the AHL playoffs went longer than the NHL playoffs.
