I really would argue for Montreal or Toronto getting it, but it seems that they'll just have a separate one every year ("Heritage Classic") as no one in the US is going to watch a Canadian team and they will make tons of money off of it in Canada anyways.
I also initially don't really like the same teams getting it year after year. I don't know, seems like it could be one of those things like the Thanksgiving Day games in the NFL. I can't really make up my mind actually. Kind of really do find it lame that twice there's been teams that have already played.
My guess the Blues are doing well: I'm not going to lie. They are a good team. They have young, upstart talent that has been growing the past few seasons and after adding Halak they really are a contender in the division. I don't think they can keep up their current pace, but who can? Good luck to them, and LGW
I really hate how Crosby gets in a fight and it's suddenly big news on ESPN and the first two highlighted stories on NHL.com. Why is it such a big deal? Didn't do much, Pens lost 5-2. I understand he is a posterboy, but it's just gets terribly annoying that it's suddenly the only story worth talking about. Sid the Kid is not Brendan Morrow or Jarome Iginla. He is a goal scorer. He needs to get off his high horse. I think Sidney Crosby is an unbelievable hockey player. I think his attitude and respect for the game and his opponents needs to change. Not because of incidents like this, but because of things like cheap shots (cross checks, crotch shots), refusing to shake hands after the playoffs, etc.
