2013 NHL Season

120 posts in this topic

The beacons are lit, the NHL has called for it's players to come back. The season should start on either the 15th for a 50 game season or the 19th for a 48 game season according to sources.

So glad this nonsense is over with and we won't have to deal with it for another 10 years!

Let's go CAPS!

Perfect timing. I always wish the Hockey season would begin after the Football season. Looking forward to some Caps Hockey.

Eh, the hockey season's way too long anyway! I like this condensed schedule!

Each game matters more now. Can't have a seven game slide.

That's what I like about football! We don't need any more of this 82-game non-sense! It's expensive enough traveling and maintaining stadiums as it is and the NHL just ended a lockout, so clearly everyone should watch their purse.

I just can't get enthused like the lockout never happened. Will be happy to see the Flyers back on the ice, though I will admit.

I'm ready for a full 82 game season. Let's see what Oates can do.

No, the season is way too damn long! All these meaningless extra games just mean more opportunities for players to get hurt and more revenue lost for the struggling franchises.

You don't live too far Columbus and Pittsburgh, do you? Maybe you could go to a couple games this season, after all!

You don't want a game everyday until March? We might even have double headers!

Now that would be awesome. I hate having to wait 4 or 5 days for the next game.

Double headers would solve this dilemma.

they would but teams would get tired to be playing them... more prone to injuries perhaps... and then the game itself will lose its quality

I'll admit to being glad for a season - even one with 48 games.

The Capitals do look good, but so, to, do the Hurricanes and Rangers.

The Leafs may still have some building to do to contend, but hopefully the charges from Hockeytown should be in good contention.

When are they going to release a schedule? And I hope they just do away with the preseason altogether, it's useless in a game with such a needlessly long season.

Schedule came out on Friday I believe. Season starts January 19th. No pre-season games, 48-game season.

Me, personally, I'm gonna start caring when the football season is over with.

Way to go NHL, schedule the Caps only home game against the Penguins on Super Bowl Sunday. :229031_rant:

Just look at it as a fall back option. If Ravens aren't in the Super Bowl at least we have something else to do.

Trying to jinx us now? :P

It would depend on how mad I am, but I usually watch the Super Bowl anyway because well, it's the Super Bowl!
