It's weird, this team shouldn't be (on paper) as good as last years, and two years ago was the opening season, and the economy continues to suck, but this schedule alone seems to promise better attendance than either of the last two years, what with all the Friday & Saturday night games.
I love this schedule also.
Our longest road trip is 5 games. 10 days. not too bad.
It's not even a traditional 5 game road trip where they are gone the whole time. They play Isles at the beginning of it and Rags towards the end. Very nice schedule for the Devils! 9 out of 10 at home while most college kids are home is going to help attendance too.
