NHL Outdoor Game MTL vs. COL @ Olympic Stadium
 
What do you guys think? Could it work/happen? I think it could, Colorado could wear their vintage Nordiques Jerseys For the old battle of Quebec game. Then You got Patrick Roy winning cups with both teams and I'm sure the NHL/Media could find a million more ways to market this game. Is there a better place to play the game? What does everyone think of this idea? :badidea:

The big O is in no state to host an outdoor game from what I heard. Plus meh, I have no desire in MTL playing in an outdoor game unless it's the Winter Classic so we can watch 24/7. However, with the horrid show that is 24CH it just won't happen.

I don't think the roof can be opened at the O. :laugh:

Is there any other large enough outdoor venues in Quebec?

Nope

Some work would have to be done for safety if anything.

they need to start letting fans sit closer to the action to make these games watchable.

You can play an out door game at University of Laval with standing room you could push 22000 and you can add anther 10 000 bleachers no problem

There's 25 000 seats at McGill stadium and 20 000 at Saputo.

Not enough for an outdoor game IMO.

take the bleachers from circuit gilles villeneuve and build a rink on ile st-helene.

Grand prix attendance can handle close to 120 000. the seating could be placed closer to the ice.

I'd say Saputo is probably the most realistic option imo.

I read somewhere that Geoff Molson said something about maybe building a temporary facility at Blue Bonnets like they did for U2

Also NBC would never let Montreal host the Winter Classic. The only way I can see the Habs in it is if they play Boston at Fenway or something., It would have to be the heritage classic vs. a canadian team.
