Does This Mean There Will Be No Wings WC Next Year?

The Fenway Sports Group and the Boston Red Sox reportedly are in the planning stages of another "Frozen Fenway" event, with the goal of playing more hockey games at Fenway Park next winter.

"We are deep into the planning phase for the possibility of a return of Frozen Fenway in 2014," Red Sox executive vice president and chief operating officer Sam Kennedy said in a story reported by College Hockey news. "We will need to secure proper city approvals and complete our negotiations with the many teams who are interested in competing before we will have any formal announcement."

In combination with the NHL's Winter Classic between the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins on Jan. 1, 2010, Fenway Park hosted its first Frozen Fenway series, with Boston University beating Boston College 3-2 on Jan. 8 in a game that drew 38,472 fans. New Hampshire and Northeastern played a women's game before the Eagles and Terriers.

On Jan. 7, 2012, Maine played New Hampshire and Massachusetts squared off against Vermont in a doubleheader that drew 38,456. Union faced Harvard at Fenway six days later, and BC played Northeastern in a men's game a day later.

In both years, the games were part of a multi-week event in which the rink was open for public skates as well as high school games.

I thought we would have our canceled WC next year. If Boston and Philly has a WC does that mean ours is gone for good?

If the Red Wings & Maple Leafs got hosed outta the WC...Well then...Time to pack their bags, and start their own "Original 6" league; the NHL can go under for all I care...In the words of Eric Cartman - "screw you guys - I'm going home".
