Why not visit Phoenix for the next years Stadium Series ? Hockey in the desert cannot look more ridiculous than on grass in California.

I hope it rains and the NHL learns their lesson about sunbelt blah blah blah and that too much of something is not good.  1 Winter Classic and 1 Heritage Classic.  Done.

There you go.

Kings should've gone with their retro 70's/80's gold, and purple jerseys.

I don't mind the location so much as I mind the number of outdoor games, it diminishes the novelty.

That's essentially how I feel. I don't understand the gripe with grass being around, it's not like NHL games are played on a pond anyway.

Ron, Peter Criss hasn't been in the band for a decade or so.

The 1970s called, they want their band back. I say this knowing great music is truly timeless...but I don't know about this one.

Does the 'Hoff' come close to Lilja?

 

Probably not.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The way they're filming Kiss it looks like they're only playing for the camera guys.

Its a shame they are overdoing this really, its kind of like knowing there is going to me a multi car pile up just outside your window you have to watch.

 

I have seen enough though looks too un natural to me and the puck is bouncing all over the place like a rubber ball.

 

Im glad to see most people dont like it, seems most of us agree this game is too tacky.

From what I've seen this game is kind of boring, especially compared to the WInter Classic.

This is a pretty boring game, the people aren't really into it, and NBC is not doing a great job covering this either. Blah.

What?  Not a lot of interest in hockey in LA?  Too many outdoor games?  

 

Nothing like taking a good idea and ruining it with overexposure Bettman, you filthy little money grubbing troll.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Between the boring play and the horrible nature of this broadcast, this will end up driving casual fans away from watching hockey.

 

I'm seriously hoping the Devils game tomorrow is better than this, though with Pierre, Doc and Eddie I seriously doubt it.

What a bore and yawner ... there is no electricity in the atmosphere.  Sorry but hockey was not meant to be played outdoors in LA.  NHL gaffed this one badly ... let's see tomorrow but already, I feel that the novelty is diminshing rapidly.  

 

Glad we got the classic.  What a joke ... in our classic, we had 2 alumni games.  In LA, they had a media and movie stars game ... wtf????

Expecting something like this, although I didn't think it would be that bad. Glad the WC has been so amazing, these wannabe classics just aren't cutting it. Movie stars and media playing a hockeygame? Seriously that's beyond pathetic.

Mr. grow the game in non markets should be ashamed. The only good thing is, no way the NHL will play so much wannabe games next year they can't be THAT stupid at least I hope not. To be fair though after the best WC ever I don't care about the next one either.

The novelty is gone good job NHL...

One winter and one heritage classic is more than enough each non lockout year
