The Lightning have announced their pre-season schedule today. First game of the year is September 16th in Dallas, then a home game on the 18th, then 4 back to back to back to back games from the 21st to the 24th, then finish up in Atlanta on the 27th. Who created that schedule? and how is that better than starting in Europe?
My complaining is not the point of my writing, what is my point is that in between all of those back to back games is a game in Everett, WA on the 22nd. Woo. That's only a 2 hour drive from Vancouver! Do I feel a roadtrip coming on? Yes. It may have to happen.
In other Lightning stuff:
-It appears that Hedman has been a busy guy. His angry looking photos have been plastered all over the Lightning website.
Mattias doesn't do angry glamor photos well....deer stuck in headlights on the other hand...
They also seem to think the draft was just on Friday...way to stay on top of things Lightning website people.
-The Lightning have also signed LW Stephane Veilleux for a 1 year deal. From what I've seen when he played in Minny he was a hard working 4th line guy. Good signing.
