Every year around Jan-Aug we have the "hardest schedule next year"
It is said when the div standings are finalized
Once again when free agency has completed its initial 10 day frenzy....again after the draft. Again during preseason.
Then the seasons starts and about 2-3 more times again we will have the "hardest schedule" for a period of time
My point...depending on ones perception our schedule is the hardest many times throughout the year regardless of how hard it actually will be..(which we really will not know until after the games have been played)
