I don't get how the league can make the swing's so dramatic. Obviously it's hard to schedule all the teams each year, but the Leafs having to play a rested team while tired 14 times and the Sens only having to do it 7 times is frankly bizarre. I mean twice as many? C'mon.

Also, if they want to make these rivalries they keep talking bout, how do you have divisional match ups were the Leafs play the night before and the Sens and Habs don't.

What rivalry are you creating when one team is still divulging what happened the night before and the other is sipping pina coladas?

Don't get me (frank)o I'm enjoying the 7 games in 10 days then the 5 days off with the wife and daughter, I just think it's bizarre they scheduled something so crooked.

I'm surprised the Leafs are still within striking distance of the payoffs given the schedule. The kids are up to the challenge thus far

Blame the NHL & The NHLPA......... it's the deal they worked out to bring back the WCOH, and that is why the schedule is compressed this season ......... just not as bad when they shutdown the league to go to the Olympics .......... and not to many leaf fans were against the even more compressed schedule that also resulted in MORE b2b games.

Can you show me how many there were for that season, Id like to take a look at it


Edit: I think I found it for 13-14 season

Leafs Tired - 9
Ottawa Tired - 11
high low ranged from 6-16


Leafs rested - 10
Ottawa rested - 11
high low ranged from 5-20


So I would say the leafs have it worse this season.

Also I am not against the compressed schedule... its the huge disparity in b2b tired vs rested thats the issue. Its an advantage for several teams

You'd also have to look at b2b both games at home and also b2b home then away or away then home .......... 3 games in 4 nights, travel schedule etc etc .

Point is the compressed schedule, for any reason, is not good for the product on the ice, and is one of the main reasons I'm not in favour of NHL Olympic participation.

You too? Making preemptive excuses is not usually your style.

The Penguins had just as much time to "rest" as any other team that plays on b2b games, and they did not have a morning skate.

Besides, all you leaf fans have been extolling the virtues of having such a young team......... are you suggesting they're not in good enough condition to play on b2b nights?

I've seen it too often with the Senators over the past two seasons, they win a game vs a superior team, such as the defending Stanley Cup champs last night, and then they lose the next game, vs a team they should beat, like Saturday vs the leafs.......... this has happened a lot last season, and couple of times this season........ so as much as you think it'll be a cake walk for the Sens, I see it as a good test for the Sens to not "let down" after "getting up" for a game vs the defending Stanley Cup champs, besides with your assertion that the leafs are in a better situation than the Senators, this game should be a lot more competitive than your misgivings about b2b games for such a young team.

Don't become discouraged. If the Leafs win a game the planning for the parade route will start again.

Hopefully that plan goes better than this.

"We are moving into stage II of a typical blue koolaid summer. Fans are beginning to notice the stories being floated that Marner might not be fit enough or ready for NHL prime time. Leafs are a last place team, they are sort of like a very young Edmonton crew of last year without McDavid.

But Leaf fans are great hockey fans and now that the silly summer chatter is winding down, they are getting around to a more balanced level of hockey discussion. We will see the Stage III early season euphoria when they win a few games at the beginning of the season and the Toronto based media predicts good things for them. But the Stage III crash into despair will come like clockwork in early December. Stage IV acceptance of reality will include some anger and frustration but it is not long lasting. And, come early March, Stage I starts again with a high degree of hopefulness as speculation of the guaranteed Tavares signing gets ramped up and fans discuss the great potential of the impending lottery and draft."
