Man, I'd make sure Reimer came back for that reason alone.

All but one involve travel of some kind, too.

EDIT: Also, this:

DaveAMcCarthy: Biggest take #Leafs sked: 22 of first 33 games are at home (& all before Christmas); 30 of last 49 are on road. Better be good away from ACC

We could definitely be looking at another good start with a 2nd half swoon.

Ahhh. I can see you're getting a head start on snuffing out any positive vibes a new season and schedule can bring, months before the start of opening night. I suppose it's best to nip those in the bud early, before delirium sets in, eh? :P

Well, a home heavy start followed by a road heavy end . . . I mean, it's making things easy to read. Even bad teams tend to play better at home.

Mirtle....Yes the Leafs have a ton of back-to-backs but they will also travel the sixth fewest miles in NHL hockeygearhq.com/nhl-super-sche… via @Forechecker

No excuses.

Meh.... I think that every team in the league should have the same amount of back to back. It only makes it fair all the way round. Just saying!

Back-to-backs for a team like Philly though who are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from NJ, NYR, NYI, and WAS are a little different than say a team like Dallas. I think the NHL actually manages that fairly well.

Yeah, just at a glance it looks like the most they have to travel for a back to back is about an hour and a half.

Hockey Gods have nothing to do with it.  Its the new Rogers-NHL deal.  5 of those are Sat-Sun, all for National Coverage of both games.

It will take some getting used to with Phoenix referred to as "ARI" (Arizona) now.

Don't forget that the WJHC is being hosted in Toronto/Montreal this year. That accounts for the 7 game road trip on either side of the Christmas break. That also happens to be the longest road trip of the year.
