Off-Season 2018

Recommended Posts

The positives of the schedule:

 

of the Tuesday’s games are only a third are at home.  

A bunch of Home weekend games- increasing the likelihood of fan attendance, home ice advantage, and increased revenue

 

The negatives:

the B2Bs are one of the league leaders again. 3 or 4, 3 games in 4 days

road heavy January with no home heavy month to balance it out. January isn’t an easy month either.

I think I'll stay away from that State Fair game too. If not, probably have to show up around 9AM and go to the fair first.

 

How is that even supposed to work? Do they block off the PNC parking lot from fair goers until after the game at least starts? 

 

Sounds like a cluster.

Just looking at the schedule now...and now scheming to knock off some Canadian cities of my hockey pilgrimage in January!!!  And the away game at Dallas is on a Saturday...double win!

 

Seriously, though, who at the NHL office hates us that bad that we constantly get hosed with all the B2B's every season?

We did pretty well on B2B's last year maybe they are trying to help?

The list of who doesn't would be much more succinct.

 

Speaking of which, how about a draft day that doesn't suc?

 

As for the Whataburgers, Canes, and In & Out Burgers of the world, all must bow to FIVE GUYS. And if you haven't tried a Bacon King yet... oh my god.

Is Gold the least-interested hockey beat reporter in the league, or what?

 

Yes, and he doesn't like hunting or hunters, which makes him a jerk that could use a permanent vacation back where he came from, which isn't here.

That is a team that doesn’t fit inside the cap.  That adds 25 million to our current payroll plus needing defense and another goalie.

Wasn't he originally with 850 the buzz or was that someone else?

I’m an In-n-Out guy myself...Five Guys is too greasy for me.

Someone at TSN is convinced Skinner will be moved today...now I’m currently on a flight from Amsterdam to Salt Lake, would someone mind recording the deafening silence from the media when it doesn’t happen today?

But that's where the FLAVOR is!!

There is a small chain in the DC area called Fosters that is much better than 5 Guys.
