The NHL schedule-maker decided to rub a little salt in whatever wounds the Sharks still have from their playoff exit.

San Jose will open its season Oct. 8 when the Los Angeles Kings begin their defense of the Stanley Cup at Staples Center. The Sharks had a 3-0 series lead over Los Angeles before dropping four straight games and being eliminated by the Kings last spring.

Three nights later, the Sharks will host Winnipeg at SAP Center.

The NHL released each team's home opener Saturday with the full schedule expected to come Sunday or Monday.

    The Warriors' trade talks with Minnesota involving Kevin Love have stalled due to an organizational split on Golden State's willingness to part with Klay Thompson, ESPN.com reported. The morning after Warriors general manager Bob Myers said a big trade was "unlikely," the website reported coach Steve Kerr and executive board member Jerry West voiced opposition to giving up Thompson and a future first-round draft pick along with David Lee for Love and Kevin Martin. ESPN.com also reported the Warriors have received calls about Thompson from teams, including the Lakers. The Los Angeles Times reported Friday the Lakers were in discussions about acquiring Thompson as part of a three-way deal in which they'd surrender the No. 7 overall pick and Love would go the Warriors.
