NHL Announces 2013-2014 Regular Season Schedule

1835

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

so how much salary do we have left to sign franson, kadri, fraser?

Franson should get 3.75AAV.. leaves the rest hopefully for Kadri and Fraser.

Pretty much exactly what I thought Gunnarsson would get. I guess this means around 4 mill for Franson.

About what I expected for Gunnarsson. He's worth more than that, though. We're lucky he was an RFA still.

Nope, 5 years at 4.7 million.

Went to a couple games over Christmas break - they play where the Orlando Magic do. It was a reasonably full house, I'm guessing 10k fans or so - pretty impressive for the ECHL, and they put on a pretty good show, winning the game and 4 or 5 fights, including an absolute mugging by Ryan Reaves I think it was.

Definitely reccomend going if you're in that area.

Only if his deal will be longer.I don't think he gets 12m/3 years.

Nice to have him locked up for 3 years at a reasonable ticket.

@Burtonboy I said 3.25 and I was hoping for 3.00. Can't complain about 3.15 I guess.

He's got his work cut out trying to solve that. Even during the play-offs it still happens. Makes me sick.

@Komas Taberle @Burtonboy  Carl has the game, is still young and the price is right. 

The good thing about NONO is that he is unlikely to dish out Komisaresque deals. Thank God there is no more that bullshit that a certain player is  this or that GM's Type of  player.  Hopefully, the media can no more hype the crape out of some players and throw them at us.

@Burtonboy @Cameron19 Somewhat, but Little does put up better numbers with Ladd and Wheeler, who aren't as good as JVR/Lupul and Kessel.

@Burtonboy @Komas Taberle Take Smiths $550k and add it to 6.5M that gives us 7M.

1M on a 1 way for Fraser

and 3M each for Kadri and Franson and we run with 22 players until such time as we can swing a deal for Liles, probabaly trade deadline.

Burtonboy

@Komas Taberle @Burtonboy If we can sign Kadri and Franson for something close to what Gunnar got or just a lttle more it should leave us with around 2 mil if we remove those 3 players . Gonna be tight

@Jantz The PA can't really do anything though.  Calgary and NJ have both run a 17 man roster before.  An injury would likely allow us to ice a full roster anyways.

Jantz

Doubt that the PA will accept that.

@Burtonboy I tried to work it out earlier BB, your solution, as mine did, will leave us with 20 signed with Fraser, Kadri and Franson on the team, we need to add 3 more players, 2 at the very least, so it looks like Liles will be traded or bought out.I am hoping it will be the former.

Jantz
Jantz

You're right. 1 m for Fraser leaves 5.5 for Kadri and Franson and that will take a miracle to come in that price. Hallelujah.hallelujah......... Might as well start praying now.

Cameron19

@Burtonboy Yea, but if you remove them and add Kadri, Franson and Fraser, you only have a 20 man roster.  So even if they go, someone else will be taking those spots.  If anything we might have less than 6.5.

@whalz Plus another 1.887 for Holzer ,Smith and Brennan who IMO won't be on the Leafs roster

@Burtonboy @Cameron19 Good multitask for Frieds. He's doing MacCowans show and still tweets out stuff. Maybe he has a guy.
