There should really be a change in the NHL schedule. This season every team has to play every team in their own division like 7 times and the other teams in their conference 4 times, so out of 82 games that is already 68 played by teams in their own conference and that leaves 14 games to play against teams in the opposite conference and there is 15 teams so automatically there will be one team that will not be played against.
Several Red Wings Message Boards and Eklund reports the Red Wings have signed D-Man Andy Delmore over the weekend.
The Penguins signed LeClair….another move toward the Cup…..
