Agreed.

 

One of the reasons Bettman gave for expanding the outdoor games is to give more teams a chance.  Funny how it seems to be the same teams over and over.  And even the Rangers twice in the same year. 

 

It'd be interesting to see a list of all the teams who've participated in an outdoor game and how many have been repeats. 

 

I'm counting all outdoor league games. Classic, "Stadium Series", etc.

 

19 teams have participated in 15 games.

 

3 games

 

New York Rangers

Chicago Blackhawks

Pittsburgh Penguins

 

2 Games

 

Detroit Red Wings

Montreal Canadiens

Los Angeles Kings

Philadelphia Flyers

Washington Capitals

 

1 Game

 

Boston Bruins

Buffalo Sabres

Anaheim Ducks

New Jersey Devils

New York Islanders

San Jose Sharks

Edmonton Oilers

Calgary Flames

Vancouver Canucks

Ottawa Senators

Toronto Maple Leafs

 

0 games

 

Colorado Avalanche

Columbus Bluejackets

Arizona Coyotes

Dallas Stars

St. Louis Blues

Minnesota Wild

Nashville Predators

Winnipeg Jets

Florida Panthers

Tampa Bay Lightning

Carolina Hurricanes

WTF is this? 

 

Chicago and Washington are not even close to being rivals. 

 

They could have....oh I don't know....given everyone Montreal and Boston

 

Or hey, how about Vancouver and San Jose in Seattle? I'm surprised Bettman wasn't all over that one. 


In Topic: 2014 Preseason Thread

I wanted Semin a few years back when he got a one-year deal. That condition was low risk, high reward. Seven million committed for one season is more appealing than long-term for a player with questions about his work ethic.

The Wings desperately need a top-six winger that scores goals, though. Have since Hossa left.

 

No, we have Franzen, didn't you pay attention to what he said?

Hahahaha... This has gotten out of control. 1.2 billion?

I don't see anything higher than the 800 million figure quoted in the same article. And that's after opening bids at 500. Yes folks, if you've ever spent a good deal of time in Toronto, you know this is really possible.
