Tuesday

NHL 2016-17 schedule is totally unfair to your team, probably

The NHL released its 2016-17 schedule on Tuesday, sending millions of fans to scour their team’s calendar to find the outrages and inequities contained there within. 

(“The Toronto Maple Leafs play 18 back-to-back games!”)

Here is the schedule for all 30 teams, separated by conference and division and team!

Here is the schedule for all 30 teams, separated by dates!

NHL 2016-17 Schedule by Date by Puckdaddyblog

A reminder about how this whole scheduling thing works, via the NHL:

Eastern Conference (8-Team Divisions)

Within Conference (Division): 30 games
* 5 games vs. two teams (3 Home/2 Away vs. one team, 2 Home/3 Away vs. one
team) AND 4 games vs. five teams (2 Home/2 Away). Teams rotated on a yearly
basis.
* 5 x 2 = 10 games
* 4 x 5 = 20 games

Within Conference (Non-Division): 24 games
* 3 games vs. each team (2 Home/1 Away vs. four teams, 1 Home/2 Away vs.
four teams). Teams rotated on a yearly basis.
* 3 x 8 = 24 games

Non-Conference: 28 games
* 2 games vs. each team (1 Home/1 Away).
* 2 x 14 = 28 games

Western Conference (7-Team Divisions)

Within Conference (Division): 29 games
* 5 games vs. five teams (3 Home/2 Away vs. two teams, 2 Home/3 Away vs.
three teams) AND 4 games vs. one team (2 Home/2 Away). Teams rotated on a
yearly basis.
* 5 x 5 = 25 games
* 1 x 4 = 4 games

Within Conference (Non-Division): 21 games
* 3 games vs. each team (2 Home/1 Away vs. four teams, 1 Home/2 Away vs.
three teams). Teams rotated on a yearly basis.
* 3 x 7 = 21 games

Non-Conference: 32 games
* 2 games vs. each team (1 Home/1 Away).
* 2 x 16 = 32 games

Exception: One team from each division plays one less game inside division
and one more game inside conference outside division.

Everyone got that? Good. Please don’t commit it to memory, as Vegas is just going to [expletive] it all up in 2017.

Head back to Puck Daddy later today for a look at the key dates for the season.
