Is their a new schedule for the Canucks or is it the same one.

Will the Canucks play Capitals if season starts Jan 15

or will the Canucks play Ducks if season starts Jan 19

OR Is their a completely new revised schedule that will be released soon?

There will be a new schedule. It wouldn't make any sense to keep the old one.

From what has been heard:
48 games = 7g vs division and 2g vs conference
50 games = 5g vs division and 3g vs conference

I have also heard speculations that:
52 games could = 8g vs division and 2g vs conference
OR
the inclusion of out of conference games. (eastern canadian teams playing western, etc.)

So to answer your question no the schedule will NOT remain the same, but to this point the schedule system is all speculation

I hope it's the 50 game format. I don't think I can handle 7 divisional games against each team.

Whatever happened to the re-allignment with four conferences - moving Winnipeg out of the Southeast? Remember that was shot down by the union and at that point said it would be part of CBA negotiations? I haven't heard a word about it. Can't keep Winnipeg in the Southeast, so surely this will affect how the schedule lays out.

The NHLPA veto'd the proposed divisional realignment idea, so the 2012-13 season was going to be with the same six divisions, regardless of whether there was a lockout. They might revisit the issue before next season.

So, no games on the shortened schedule vs. the opposite conference? That blows.

They will probably keep some of the existing Western Conference games from the old schedule.

Likely a new one. Which is sad, because now I won't be able to go to my first Canucks game :(

The math doesn't add up, but I agree with the sentiment. It would be nice to see the other conference on occasion, although less travel is better for the Canucks.

Still, our conference could be the most exciting. Colorado has a solid shot at the playoffs, Minnesota now has Suter and Parise and this could be Edmonton's break out season seeing as many of their young guys have been keeping in shape and developing in the AHL. Calgary will probably still suck, maintaining the natural order.
