I hope you don't mind the all-caps... anyway, some quick immediate thoughts:

  • Five games against each of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins
  • Seven games in 12 days to start the season? Including trips to Winnipeg and Florida? Seems a little insane.
  • Ottawa's got two Florida road trips, the first in January and the second in April.
  • Not a single home-and-home series in the season.
  • Seven appearances on CBC (including a random Sunday afternoon game against the Candiens), six on TSN, and a surprising one appearance on... NHLN-US?

UPDATE: A pretty radical video explaining the new CBA (alongside a bit of a free preview) was recently put out by On The Forecheck. Check it out below:
