You said last season the schedule didn't matter and was not a legitimate excuse
- walshyleafsfan



Again, a leaf fan putting words in my mouth ........... somethings never change.

I pointed out that both the leafs and the Senators have the exact same schedule of opponents, over the season .......... neither team has a easier schedule (of opponents) than the other .......... it's a given that there is a bit of difference in the quirks of each teams schedules visa vie back to backs, 3 games in 4 nights ................. but to suggest that one team has a clear advantage over the other, in regards to their respective schedules, is not an argument either fan-base can use.

All teams now have a "compressed " schedule because of the negotiated "break" in the schedule I think the players asked for in the bargaining process........... so I give no lip service to players who complain about the compressed schedule, back to backs etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it the MLSE that owns and operates the ACC, and controls the building availability for their two main tenants?

To some degree. The leagues set the schedules so there is only so much they can control. In this case you have two leagues which makes it a bit more tricky.

Oh I understand it's bit more of an issue with accommodating both the NBA and NHL schedules ..... that's why I mentioned it.

When the Wings scored, late in the third period, I'll bet most people thought that was it, including me, as Howard was stopping everything.

lucky to come away with a (loser) point .............. and yes I still hate the shoot out ...... needs to be scrapped.

But the GM and coach got the team to the ECF. They believe they will improve on this this coming year. Not sure you can ignore hard realities.

Love when you guys paraphrase my posts without appropriate attribution. I am pleased to know you take time to read and think about the stuff I post. You have really put yourself out there this summer.

I conceed the media has egged you on and encouraged you to dream in technicolor. But, a new season is right around the corner and we will get back to talking about the scoreboard soon enough.

Sens rookies beat Leaf rookies 4-3 in shoot out. Sens did not dress eith Chabot or White. Count one for our side. A real competition with a scoreboard.

Monday night is first exhibition game. We get to count again.

Really! Did you know the Sens finished ahead of the Leafs in the standings last year? Did you know the Sens went to the ECF losing the 7th game in double over time? These are the kind of scoreboard related facts that many Leaf fans want to subject to creative interpretation.

Scoreboard matters.

- spatso



it sure does.
