With lots of chatter all over the Internet about when the 2008-09 NHL schedule will be released, here is the latest word from the Sabres:
1). The current plan is for the full NHL schedule to be released Thursday at noon.
2). There may be a couple small pieces released Wednesday. Several outlets are reporting that teams are going to be given the go-ahead to announce their openers and perhaps a couple of other key games but the full schedule will still be held to Thursday while it's finalized.
So get your pens and your road maps ready. It looks like Thursday at noon.
