Scheduling, Scheduling, Scheduling

So I know I said this was going to be a Rangers blog, but something caught my eye this morning that I couldn't refuse talking about.  In E.J. Hradek's post on ESPN.com yesterday, he mentioned that the Los Angeles Kings won't play again until December 26th.  So I did some quick research.

Not only do the Kings not hit the ice for anything that counts until this upcoming Saturday, but they haven't played in a game since LAST Thursday (December 17th).  That's EIGHT (8) full days off between games.  But it gets better...

Before their 8 day sabbatical, the Kings had a swing of 3 games in 4 nights and 6 games in 9 nights.  AND after their Winter Solstice break, the Kings will play another 4 games in 6 nights.  WOW!


  1. The Olympics were supposed to condense the schedule, not give teams 8-day breaks.

  2. Are you implying that the League should've given the schedule some actual thought? Crazy talk...
