Meh ... sorry Major but I think that's a load of bull. Only significance this game has is that its the start of yet another season and the hype is finally here. Considering both teams have new "big" additions to their respective squads there's also a transition period where players have to get comfortable with one another too. Some teams take longer to mesh than others. So, the first game in my opinion dictates nothing for the remainder of the regular season.
