I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere on here but Laforge was interviewed on Team 1260 today regarding the upcoming season. One interesting thing that he did say was that the NHL were looking to schedule all games to be inter-conference only with no crossovers between the East and the West. I don't know if this is speculation or not as he seemed to be talking as if it were common knowledge that this was going to be the leagues approach. I assume this reduces travel AND is a method of drawing the fans back in, the promise of intense rivalries building?

Also of interest in the interview was that there was a push last year to go to 3 points for a win, pushed by Scott Howson. He said it was well received but just seemed to die a death. I guess Scott was too busy fighting with Nash to spend time on rule changes. icon_lol

All talk I've read has said no east v west games. For a shortened season I don't really have an issue with it.

I actually think that the Oil may have a leg up should the shortened season involve a lot of back-to-back games, due to their youth. For me, the real question is whether the blue-line corps has improved enough to give Dubnyk enough help, not to mention whether Dubs himself can play well enough.

The Oilers had a better record last year against the East than against fellow Western Conference Teams, 8-7-3 versus 24-33-7.

From what I can tell, the schedule will be:

5 games versus each against Flames and Canucks = 10 games
4 games versus each against Colorado and Minnesota = 8 games
3 games versus each other western team = 30 games

For a total of 48 games. Using last years record versus those teams we get around 41 points, which is actually worse than the Oilers finished last year due to the points made in the east. Where the Oilers really need to pick up their socks is against the Pacific Division (5-13-2 last year).

How do they get screwed in a same conference-only schedule? They're closer to more Eastern Conference teams than Western conference teams and the Eastern conference teams are closer, making travel easier.

How do you figure?

Winnipeg is closer to Edmonton, Calgary, Detroit, Chicago, and Minnesota than the closest Eastern teams (Toronto and Buffalo). St. Louis and Colorado are barely further than TO and Buffalo, and closer than any of the other Eastern teams.

In general though, the Western Conference clubs have a much tougher travel schedule.

Winnipeg is still in the South East division. So 37% (18/48) of their games against Florida, Tampa, Washington, Carolina. 2500km plus dealing with border/customs to get to the rest of your division.

That'd be like the Oilers being in the Central division. That would suck.

Good. One less Canadian team I'll have to cheer against in the playoffs if they can't make it.

San Jose will open the 48-game season on Jan. 20 in Calgary against the Flames, and visit the Edmonton Oilers the next night. The game in Calgary is consistent with what sources have told CSNCalifornia.com, while John Shannon of Sportsnet in Canada tweeted about the game in Edmonton.

I know there's a rivalry and all, but is anyone else tired of Calgary being the first and last game of every year?

A little variety would be nice.

Dan Tencer brought up a good point on his show last night: there won't be any games between the East and West this year, right? So that means that on night #1, two teams will be sitting around doing nothing since there's 15 teams in each conference (14 in each conference will play each other).

If I was in charge, I'd have Vancouver play Boston to open the season! They hate each other and it would be entertaining. You could also do the Canadian matchups of Montreal vs Toronto, Ottawa vs Winnipeg, & Edmonton vs Calgary too. Throw in Philly vs Pittsburgh, and maybe Detroit vs Chicago, and who wouldn't want to watch?

Gregor has said a few interesting tidbits today on the schedule.

1. Vancouver could get opening night CBC time, we could open our season in Vancouver.
Quote:

Now hearing Oilers might not open at home...Lots of late changes to sched...Could be Sunday in Vancouver. #nhl



2. Format is changed, the 4x against two teams and 5x against two teams was a doomed format, just doesn't seem like it should have been possible to do.
Quote:

Interesting. RT @BroadStBull NHL has changed sked format again. Teams will only play teams in same div. 4x. More details coming.


3. Oilers are going to have an 8 game road trip this shortened season
Quote:

Sounds like NHL schedule will end April 28th. Very compressed sched. Oilers will play 48 games in 98 days. Including 8-game road trip.



For what its worth, everyone's favorite insider icon_rolleyes Treena was saying that we opened on the road against the Flames last night, not that anyone believes what she says at all.

48 games in 98 days? Yikes, are they even going to bother with in season practices? This shortened season is gonna be far more brutal/grueling than a normal one.

3 solid months of average game day - off day - game - off - game. Plus travel time from city to city in there.

With such a compressed schedule, you'd have to think the Eastern teams that don't travel that far will have huge advantages come playoffs.

Those poor SE teams, with intra-division games in the 'Peg - will be extra rough this year

It looks solid, but it doesn't correlate with the tweet Gregor re-tweeted, referring to the NHL going back to 4x against all div. opponents, not 2 teams 5x. Really hoping the NHL actually posts the full sched sometime tonight.

We play Vancouver on Sunday, then SJ and LA in to Rexall during the week (Tuesday/Thursday) and then a visit to the Saddledome on Saturday night to battle the Flames. The Brier trip is now being reported as a nine game trek, which doesn't sound like it will be a fun time in all reality.

EDIT: Forgot to put in that I thought that the Sharks would start in Calgary on Sunday, makes sense to me.

6 Cups

I'm obviously too far away, but at 4pm the Oilers are having a shiny game at Hawrelak Park. Free for the public to watch, but don't bring your skates expecting to play.

3 Cups

I added the 2013 schedule to the site. I only kept the TSN and CBC broadcasters in it. I wasn't so sure what the "NHLN-US" meant on the Oilers' official site. Are there going to be two games only on the NHL Network for American viewers? Do fans in Edmonton need the NHL network to see these two games?

The two games in question are Saturday, April 6 -- Oilers/Kings and Friday, April 26 -- Oilers/Wild.

I'll update the schedule here when SportsNet releases their broadcast schedule.

With the schedule now up-to-date, the score prediction contest is active again.

I hate this schedule.

Interconference play totally favours Eastern teams re: travel. Those teams never leave their own time zone (except Winnipeg), whereas Western teams are bouncing all over the place.

I hate "rivalry building". I don't need to see Van, Col, Cal, Minn all the time for a rivalry. As a city, we already have a big rivalry with Calgary and Vancouver. I want to see stars, I want to see Crosby, OV, Stamkos, Tavares, etc.

In their careers, how many times have OV and Crosby been in Edmonton? Twice? You don't think a team like Phoenix or Columbus would benefit from having them visit once a year?

Would rather see 58 games - home and home with every team in the league.

A better schedule would have been:
4 games vs division (16)
2 games vs conference (20)
1 game vs other conference (15)
Total = 51 games.

Did Mike land out winning that last year? I remember he was way ahead of us for almost the entire season. He somehow predicted almost all of that amazing winning streak at the start of the season.

I was there for Ovechkin's first game here. He looked so confused when he scored and the crowd went wild rock
