The Rochester Americans will start the 2008/2009 season at home on Friday October 10th at Blue Cross Arena. Our guess is that the home opener will be against the Syracuse Crunch considering the two teams will be playing each other 12 times.
This will be the first of the three year affiliation agreement between the Rochester Americans and the Florida Panthers. The team will have essentially a similar level of talent as last year, but without all of the other off ice garbage going on things should be much better. They really can’t get any worse (or at least we hope not).
Apologies about the news that is already a few days old, we’re back from summer vacation and getting caught up on everything that’s been going on.
