The NHL season has been over for only 2 days now, but that's no reason we can't start to look forward to next year. The Red Wings, through press release, have announced the dates for their pre-season slate of games. The usual suspects are there, with the Wings taking on traditional rivals like the Maple Leafs and Blackhawks along with newer rivals like the Penguins.
Below is the schedule with dates and times listed. Tickets won't be on sale for a while, and at the risk of being the wet blanket, this is all assuming the owners and players don't have any problems hashing out a new CBA.
