The full NHL schedule for 2008-09 will be released in mid-July, and it will show the Maple Leafs opening up the regular season with a game at Detroit on Thursday, October 9th — the start of the Red Wings’ Stanley Cup defence. (more)


Acquiring a certain Swede would make that game just a bit more interesting, don't you think?

Also, I'm sort of dying to see the rest of the schedule. Mid-July (whatever that means) can't come soon enough.
Babcock: Nice to win, eh?

Should be an easy win for a good start to the season. Haven't seen Toronto play in forever.

Is that so Toronto can finally get to watch a banner being raised?

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

HA owned!! October 9th is a little late for me. Last year it was Oct. 3rd. That's like 6 days later. That's almost a week!!! scared.gif I'm already suffering from hockey deprivation.

4-1 Wings

This is such a great way to kick of the season. With the Wings not having any real rival at this point, there's nothing better than the most bitter rivals of all-time opening a season against one another.

Jesus! How bad do you think the Wings defense is if the Leafs Janitor can put one by us? laugh.gif

well...it's where the leafs are kicking off their season...

not necessarily ours, though it does say it'll be the 'start of our defense'

traditionally the conference finalists meet in the 1st game, though ofc that doesn't always happen

Awesome news I for one will be there. I saw Wings VS Leafs in February and yeah we all know what happened there, Cleary got hit in the face by Samelsson and they lost in OT..... Revenge baby ranting.gif

This may REALLY SUCK! Might mean the boys start the season on the road. 10-1 they open the season OCt 6th in Pittsburgh. Monday night, Versus will carry it.


Why in the hell do the candian teams get a home and home with each other and we are probably stuck with Colu, St Louis, and Carolina?

OP says the game will be the first for the Wings too - "start of the Stanley Cup defense" and all that. So it sounds like Wings-Leafs at the Joe opens up the season. Thursday night is a great night for it too.

Did I miss somewhere in the previous posts, but where is this game being played? Cause I am actually planning a trip to Detroit that is including a visit to Toronto in October. Please somebody tell me, I am really stoked about them playing.
lighten up people, it's the internet!
