Errr, it's still not "official" until it's announced by the NHL.  All that the story confirms is that the UM Board of Regents voted to allow the NHL to use the Big House for the 2014 Winter Classic.  The story goes on to state that the NHL is "closing on terms" with UM and the Tigers to use their stadiums for the weeklong festival.


So I've edited the topic title for now.  Although we all know it's likely a foregone conclusion, there's still nothing "official" about the game, other than Michigan will allow the NHL to use their stadium for the game.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Well this is good to hear at least. From the quotes i've been hearing recently, it wasn't even known anymore that the Leafs and Red Wings were playing next year (even though they were quoted saying that it would simply just be pushed back a year). Bettman was quoted saying that he wasn't sure about next years Winter Classic and that because of this lockout, they wanted to bring in 2 more outdoor games. One located on the East coast, and one on the West coast, completely taking away from the shine of the Winter Classic. If they seriously turn this "Winter Classic" into a gonger like "Hockey Day in America v2.0" i'm going to freak. One event, one game, let it get national spotlight. Leave the numerous games to Hockey Day in America....
