Looking for the best source you need to find the season schedule and broadcasting information?

You have come to the right place! Welcome to the Hockey Forum's official resource for the Calgary Flames' 2008-2009 season schedule.

I have to put together for the Hockey Forum community a news resource thread for the Calgary Flames' regular season game schedule and upcoming broadcasting information. Such information isn't just for here, but also for individual team boards. The posts are organized to show both schedule types and are easy to find what you're looking for.

The first post in this thread will contain news hyperlinks for the game schedules themselves. The second post is reserved for the broadcasting information.

I would like to invite everyone's participation in helping me track down any news items you find in the posts that follow! You see something that you think I should add to either the game schedule news link list or those for the broadcasting schedules, please by all means post them and I'll then add them.

My goal is to encourage participation in this thread where once the schedules are released, let's hear what you think are the most anticipated games you think should be circled on the 2008-2009 hockey calendar! Also, what do you like about the new schedules? What do you not like about them? Many other fans would like to know what your answers would be.

The National Hockey League unveiled the 2008-2009 regular season schedule on July 17, 2008 at 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time. For more on the entire league schedule, please go to this thread for further details.
