Yeah. I think if they played the Saturday game, they'd have to play back-to-back on Sunday.

The Clippers and Lakers also play at Staples, and Coldplay has two shows in Vancouver, so the schedule makers' hands were tied in many ways. The Sunday game coming off an afternoon basketball game will be an interesting turn around. Expect atrocious ice.

As for Daniel, even if he comes back game 1 or 2, the extra days between games 3 and 4 will give him more practise and conditioning time before the series potentially goes deep.

Wed 7:30
Fri 7:00
Sun 7:30
Wed 10
Sun TBD
Tues TBD
Thur TBD

So 2 days off after game 3, and then 3 off after game 4.

Not the best schedule, but better to have more off-days than playing 3 in 4 nights.
Jeez man, a lot of late nights for meez...forget the Organic Lager cask it'll be Monster Energy drinks and Jägermeister bombs(fuck that shyte...it's terrible)...I am sofa king pumped about it now that I see the first road in our journey this year...

One thought I do have:

Fora few shifts on occasion, I'd like to see Kesler play RW on Hank's line. It gives the Kings a different look and it may also help Kes get his offensive game going if he's struggling at any time.

Any word on when Daniel is coming back?

I believe the Canucks refuted the stories that he is even skating yet.

Hate the schedule, I'm finishing an Accounting class this Wednesday and the final is next Wednesday

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I can't wait until Wednesday night, I'm in the library right now fuelled by Monster™ madly working on my paper which I have to present 3 hours before game one start time, I'm going to be wired for the next few days but then I can relax and enjoy the 1st round...

Relax and enjoy the first round.

I'm going to be tense as a mofo the next couple months. Last year I enjoyed it.

This year, I'm going to be wound up tighter than blank's blankity blank.

Mike Keenan thinks LA will take the Canucks.

CBC has Ottawa on Saturday at 7 PM eastern though the game is in New York.

Vancouver is supposed to be one of the better conditioned clubs, so do extra days off benefit them as much as or more than LA (other than Salo maybe)?

I don't see anything unusual about that. NY and Ottawa are both in the eastern time zone. When else would it be?

I haven't watched him much since our last go-around in the playoffs but if he's still kicking out those huge rebounds and the Canucks forwards can get to them first it's going to be a..... Quick series. 8-)
