    who will the wings play in their inaugural game and who will San Diego play

    Due to distance there is no natural rivalry between the 2 expansion teams so they better not play each other opening night

    The story wrote its self, the wings left town to. Connecticut , Philadelphia was granted an expansion franchise . The league needs to bring the Blackwolves to Philadelphia on a Saturday night to open the 2018/2019 season

    San Diego can play Colorado , their story line can be govett returns vs the mammoth

    For home openers they should put Philly against Buffalo and San Diego against Vancouver. Not natural rivalries, but based on the performance/results of last season, should be competitive games which the expansion teams have a decent shot of winning and get those fans (especially first timers in San Diego) back in the arena next game.

    All I’m saying is they are missing a huge marketing reach if they don’t send New England to Philadelphia week 1

    Shoots and Ladders. It's the song of winners, doncha ya know. :p

    There's something to be said for the Wings playing Buffalo in the home opener but there might be more hatred for the visitors if it's the Wolves.

    I think the Wings should play the Black Wolves at home in their season opener. If not the Black Wolves, then it should be the Bandits.

    For the Wings, it will be 1 of 3 Wings games in 7 days followed by 3 straight bye weeks followed by 3 consecutive road games. This is the NLL, after all. :D

    Game presentation is big business that some just don't get, that's cool, the snark was funny.

    Philly-NE is the right move so expect the NLL to do Philly- Sask

    In standard nll fashion the wings home opener won’t be until the second week of January due to the standard Disney on ice block of dates at the Wells Fargo center
    They will play 3 on the road opening in San Diego followed by Rochester and Georgia
    They come home 0/3 and lose to NE

    Paul Rabil will score the winning goal for San Diego in that road game too.

    Disney is always out of there by 1/1, but the sentiment is accurate.

    Even better, then it guarantees that the Wings' home opener versus San Diego will be on Wednesday, December 5 at 11:00am since this league wants to start earlier and earlier!

    The Flyers schedule came out. They have a game sat. 1/5 at 1pm. A perfect night for a game, but as I was typing, I realized the season will start in Dec. I also realized that I previously also was.in favor of a first game being vs those BWolves.
