NHL Announces 2013-2014 Regular Season Schedule

1774

The NHL, a day late and a dollar short as always, released the schedule for the 2013-14 NHL regular season this afternoon.  In an unsurprising move, the Toronto Maple Leafs will open their season on the road on October 1st against the Montreal Canadiens.

Full schedule:

Quick notes:

–          The Leafs have joined the Atlantic division, with other notable seaports Ottawa, Detroit and Montreal.  I still would have preferred going with famous players/patrons names for the divisions.

–          The Leafs will be fortunate that of their Atlantic division rivals, they play the Canadiens and Buffalo Sabres 5 times each.  They’ll square off against the Bruins, Senators, Red Wings, Lightning and Panthers only 4 times

–          Also new to the schedule, the Leafs will play every team at least twice this season.  They’ll play *sigh* the Metropolitan Division teams 3 times each, while playing 2 games against each Western Conference squad.  Actually a prudent move from the league…

–          The Leafs have 16 back-to-back games throughout the season

 

Lovely infographic:

      • mcloki

        Burtonboy rustynail Totally braindead by the NHL. But then again what’s new. Metropolitan. Are you kidding me Half the players in the NHL today can’t spell it.

        • Pent_House

          mcloki Burtonboy rustynail They could have spelled it in the past?

        • mcloki

          Pent_House mcloki Burtonboy rustynail They’re retired.  They ain’t spelling for nobody. But they were in the Adams or the Chuck Norris Division. Real hockey names.

        • wendelsway1

          mcloki Burtonboy rustynail lol….thank goodness the Leafs aren’t in the Metropolitan Div……wouldn’t want to give the Phaneuf haters any more ammunition……lol  :)

        • rustynail

          wendelsway1 mcloki Burtonboy rustynail it will become the Met so MSM can spell it :)

        • mcloki

          rustynail wendelsway1 mcloki Burtonboy Great so now a division is named after an Opera Hall in New York.

        • Pent_House

          mcloki rustynail wendelsway1 Burtonboy You sure it’s not named after a bitch drink

      rustynail They should have called us the north-east or some crap if they’re using these generic names.

    • mcloki

      Burtonboy That’s great. I always liked him. seemed like a great hockey guy.

  • Jmessih

    Could have at least used proper names, not this crap

    • Dink

      Jmessih   or body part names

  • BigM27

    There is no geographical term to describe the reality of our new division! Simple as that!

    • Pent_House

      BigM27 I would have liked North-Eastern or something like that, but Tampa and Florida kinda of screw that up.

    • Dink

      BigM27 I don’t mind the Atlantic, Pacific and Central  but even the NFL wouldn’t call a division Metropolitans

  • getstanley1

    Honestly, how many times can the NHL shoot itself in the foot and carry on…Metro division? Besides being a meaningless term in this context, there are 6 teams in this division that are closer to the Atlantic Ocean than every team in the so-called Atlantic division except Boston (?!?). Who thinks up this crap? I want his job, not because I’m looking for a job where incompetence is a skill requirement; I just hate to see someone doing a piss poor job of the simplest tasks.

    • maple1967leafs

  • UKno

    Anyone else find it stupid that under this alignment Phoenix (10th) would have made the playoffs last year?

    • Jmessih

      Anyone else find it stupid that Phoenix has a team?

      • getstanley1

        Jmessih Not really. 5th biggest market in the US. Lots of potential US TV rights money is the main motive. Has always been a decent minor league market. But I get what your saying…hockey in the desert? Especially with Canadian markets dying to have a team? Senseless, indeed!

    • wendelsway1

      UKno There is a whole lot of stupid when it comes to certain aspects of the NHL….scheduling, reffing….etc, etc…..People need to realize that you can’t fix stupid.  :)

      • playoff nut

        wendelsway1 UKno And there we have it ,the simple truth lol

  • ErikGruber

    West, Central, Northeast, Southeast. They should have just put NYR and NYI in the Atlantic Div. I guess they were worried about rivalries? Teams will make new rivalries. Big deal.
    But I can only get so upset over what the name of a division is. It’s doesn’t really matter.

    • Dink

      ErikGruber Should have just had 2 divisions  East and West but nooooooo thats too simple

      • Dink

        ErikGruber and the West can have Columbus back too

    • ErikGruber

      Would be nice if I could proofread my own comments too.

        The 6-1 game was the second best hockey game I have ever seen. The best was when I was in Boston Garden for the rematch of Bruins-Canucks after the Stanley Cup. The violence was in the air that night. Even before the game started, the crowd was chanting Luoooooongo, Luooooooongo. And that was about as friendly as it got.

    • dlb eh

      Kadri vs their little pesky guy what’s his name

      • Kouba

        dlb eh Dan39 gallagher, he plays in oasis also

      • Dan39

        dlb eh Dan39  
        Yeah, didn’t Gallagher threaten to drop his gloves after Kadri smashed him into the boards in the neutral zone? 
        I remember that play, I got real excited because believe it or not Kadri can actually throw pretty good and that Gallagher kid needs it. 
        Was he the one that Kostka fought last season? 

        That was the same game as I remmeber that Kadri demolished Eller and then stood over him taunting him.. What a prick. More of that in 13-14 pls.

    -Keon- Ohio is eastern-time zone, the team has enough problems, without trying to get the fan-base to watch half their games at 10pm at night.

    • rustynail

      Pent_House -Keon- Columbus is well east of Detroit

      • rustynail

        -Keon- didn’t whine as much when they were getting basically free passes to the playoffs though

    • Pent_House

      -Keon- Were they going to make the play-offs before? Adding one more team to play against isn’t going to make a whole lot of difference. You’re either good enough to be in the play-offs or not.

    • Pent_House

      -Keon- It’s actually easier now, the florida teams weren’t going to win the division before so they were competing with the entire east for the last 7 spots, now they just are battling 7 teams in their division. What’s the point in crying about playing in a competitive division….that’s the whole point of the sport.

    • rustynail

      -Keon- so again a division winner could be a higher seed than teams that finished with more points than them

    • rustynail

      -Keon- less likely than the old system anyhow

    • Pent_House

      -Keon- They were fucked regardless, and it’s not Bettman’s job to structure the league to be as easy on the Florida teams as possible. They’ve had the easiest division in the league for years, and haven’t capitalized on it at all. They made the play-offs once in recent history. The league is competitive regardless. If they are a good team, they will be in the play-offs plain and simple. I don’t get why you’re going off about this.

  • Archie Vanlanda

    Pent_House I have heard people say the Mckegg and Ross took big steps forward towards the end of the year with the Marlies. Can you give a more specific breaks down of what areas of their game improved?

    • Pent_House

      Archie Vanlanda Pent_House They did. McKegg especially. His skating improved a lot, he played physical, went into the corners, made an offensive contribution to the team. He played every forward position. He stayed in the line-up for most of the year, and made a huge impact in the play-offs. Ross had a great rookie season too. He started off shaky, not really finding his place in the line-up, being sent up and down from the ECHL, but as the season went a long he really started to put it together. He ended up on the top-line with Colborne and that’s when he really flourished. He started to attack the net, and post up at the net extremely well and started to create offense from that. Created space for his line-mates. He went on a good goal scoring streak playing along side Colborne. I think both guys will be top6 players with the Marlies for all of next season.

      • Archie Vanlanda

        Pent_House Archie Vanlanda Thanks for the update. Thats good to read. It would be nice if they could eventually make an impact with the Leafs. Does Mckegg have the defensive game to play in the bottom six in the NHL(once he has developed I mean)?

        • dlb eh

          Archie Vanlanda Pent_House 
          yes.  like Bozak.  everyone will have a different opinion on that one lol

        • Pent_House

          Archie Vanlanda Pent_House I think so. He was always good defensively in junior, and his positioning is strong in the defensive zone, and he’s not scared to go battle in the corners or behind the net. He’s a versatile player, and can do whatever you want him to do. I wouldn’t write him off as a bottom 6 player yet though. I think he has top6 potential. He scored 50 goals in junior, and this year he showed flashes of being able to score, especially in the play-offs. I think if you want him to start in the bottom 6 in the NHL before moving up to the top6, he’s more than capable of doing that. Real intelligent player.

        • dlb eh

          Pent_House Archie Vanlanda

      Just read the kid moved to Canada when he was 15 to play for Notre Dame Hounds.

    Chris Gibson is the most non-Finnish name I’ve ever heard.

        Word of the day: umulaut.

      -Keon- 
      that’s what they did with Ellerslicksballseinnen

      • dlb eh

        -Keon- 
        you’re right, i was going on memory and didn’t give it the time it deserved to get it right

  • Cameron19

    LA is developing a history of letting good players go elsewhere before they become good.  Moulson, Purcell, Hickey…hopefully Gibson follows that trend.

    • Burtonboy

      Cameron19 Whats his corsi rating I wonder :)))))))))))))))

      • Dan39

        What’s his rebound control like? Good glove hand?

    • Xxxxxnew

      I can see that happening under the cap with good teams in stretches where they don’t turn over their main roster all that much. No room for everyone to grab a job.

    • Xxxxxnew

      I like the fact he came to Canada when he was 15 to play for the Notre Dame Hounds.

    LeafsPR: The 6-1, 190-pound native of Karkkila, Finland, (Gibson) participated in the Maple Leafs prospect camp last week. #Leafs #TMLtalk

      So is he for the Marlies or he’ll go to ECHL or Europe or something?
      I mean MacIntyre has a new deal and presumably Sparks stays unless he goes back to junior and this new kid fills in?

      • Xxxxxnew

        I’m sure that’s the general plan. Kid’s still 20 so he’s still in the development stage.

    • playoff nut

      Xxxxxnew The more goalie prospects in the pipeline the better imho,not named tosala .pogge that is

  • wiski

    Well done Michael, clears things up much better than that list.

  • .JVR.

    I think the NHL definately missed the boat by not going Vintage with their Divisions.
    They should have been named the Norris, Adams, Patrick and Selke Divisions.

    • dlb eh

      .JVR. 
      there was some debate regarding those names as well.  i’m sure that was voted down the moment it was suggested, if it was.

    • dlb eh

      .JVR. 
      but i liked those names too

    • wiski

      .JVR. Too complicated for the Yanks, or so they think.

        Bettman is like the Leiweke of the NHL.
        No respect for the past!

    • Xxxxxnew

      Norris, the guy who screwed Gordie Howe out of hundreds of thousands of dollars?

      • .JVR.

        Xxxxxnew 
        sure?

        • Xxxxxnew

          It was Norris’s son wo took over the team that screwed him. Told Gordie he was the highest paid player on the team at $45,000 a year when there were guys making double that.

        • Zep2

          Xxxxxnew Didnt Norris Pere give Howe a Wings Team Jacket when Gordie asked for a bonus for winning the MVP award? BIG HEART, CLASSY MOVE

        • Xxxxxnew

          Yep. He found out he had been underpaid for years when Bob Baun told him how much he was making.

  • dlb eh

    ah nuts.
    Yip’s off the market
