I would much rather see them play the Habs again or the Bruins. Those would make for some good games.

yea i agree those would be good and i would just like to see an original six matchup but i mean toranto has good fans and the organization is bad right now. i just think the fans deserve something good right now

If they had to skate around gators I would absolutely watch.

How about two warm climate teams playing in a cold climate outdoor stadium? Or maybe the hosting team from the North vs. a warm climate team...

How about a team of local men playing a NHL team on their homemade outdoor ice? (Hmmmmmmm, I should make a movie out of that idea! :ninja:)

I'm actually going to be in New York on the 1st of January next year. I will be ridiculously happy if they are hosting it.

Yep, do it in the Mile High Stadium (is it still called that?) Should be easy to market.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

How about a Panthers vs. Lightning game for the battle of Florida?

I'm sure NBC would love that s***.


they could just ditch the skates and play the game in a parking lot on roller blades. but here's the catch: they don't close the parking lot. check of the game: St. Louis drilled by P. Aztek!

I think it's time they turn the Winter Classic into a Double Header just like the NFL does with the Thanksgiving Classic. Have the early game between two East teams and the late game between two West teams. I know there is this feeling of keeping it a special thing to play in but why not extend it and turn it into a major hockey event that lasts all day. Also, with 4 teams getting to play outside each year they could even throw a Canadian team in it once in a while, but the games should always be played in the States to keep interest in hockey growing.


i actually really like this idea. i do think it would still keep the event special -- only one DAY a year still, even if it's two games. i wonder if the reason that hasn't happened is the network's trepidation to go to a full day of hockey programming. but, hell, that would be a lot of fun for hockey fans, for sure. plus, you get a lot more teams involved that way -- by making more markets part of the event every year, you'd get more buzz in more cities.

go rangers-habs early, nucks-aves late, and you're emphasizing the US versus Canada aspect, which i think would be fun, you're playing to fans of both conferences. and, hell, you can still involve southern teams as long as they're playing away games. i'd love to see this happen sometime down the road.

Toronto vs Detroit in Comerica Park would be pretty damn cool.

I'd love to see one in Colorado too, any game up there would be fun to watch.

I like the idea of a NYR vs NYI game though... not exactly ratings gold but would be cool for the rivalry aspect. Play it at Yankee Stadium. :thumbup:

its called Invesco Field at Mile High now, so..... yes still Mile High.

I like the Maple Leafs vs Wings at the big house. But Avs vs Canes (Nordiques vs Whalers) at Mile high would be cool. The could wear the Throwback jerseys.

The Refs could be Gators too, because they'd be unbiased, they wouldn't allow diving and they'd probably do a better job then the refs now.
