14 games against the Oilers could be fun but 13/14 games against the Sens/Leafs/Habs is going to be a snoozer.

We're going to long for the Tuesday night against Minnesota.

Yeah, if the CFL played 5 times the games and multiple times per week.

I can feel my hatred of McDavid and Petterson growing already.

If it’s a 54 or 60 game schedule starting in January with no fans... why not try something different for a year. Could be fun? 9 or 10 games against each team. There are some great rivalries amongst these teams.

They should probably play like in a series like baseball to cut down on travel, both for costs savings and limiting Covid spread.

At least some actual rivalries will be made. They've seemed pretty well non existent outside of BOA last season.

Rivalries are made in the play-offs.

instead of one bubble, where you play each team 10 times, how about two bubbles? Split the season in half.

Have one bubble for half the season (a Cdn division, or whatever), then have a break and a shift into a 2nd bubble with different teams?

Just to even the schedule out a bit, and give fans some variety.

I thought they already said that there won't be a season if it had to be a bubble?

I like it.

One anthem before every game for the whole year.

Does this make the Flames a Cup favourite since all the other Canadian teams suck?

Nah, the anthems are cool. It’s nice to watch the guys rock side to side in the dark while they get psyched up.

Makes sense, there's been talk of a 48 game season so 8 games vs each team fits nicely scheduling wise.
