Propose that the All Star Game could be played outside, Replace the winter classic..
 
I myself love the outdoor classic games, they are fun to watch and i think it is a good publicity thing for the nhl. This years ran fine, but last years game there was a problem with snow falling and ice, which makes an argument that it makes a game that counts so much harder for teams to play in, and could be a bit unfair. What if the nhl started playing the allstar game, a game that really means nothing but publicity, outside? what do you think? Would people go to see it in a venue like this??

It could be a good idea, but I don't think that will ever happen.

most likely due to a revenue thing, the i dont think allstar weekend is nearly as big in the states as it is here. US fans correct me if im wrong, but do you hear a whole lot about it?

Yeah we dont really hear anything about it, but if they were to make it outside, it would make it alot more interesting.

:dunno: im fine with the winter classic being a regular season game. would the ice be able to sustain all the acitivities during the weekend?

The problem with the All-Star game is that it's a meaningless, boring, soft game. Playing it outdoors won't solve it.

Hummm... Well, it would be tough to schedule anything south of Washington.

No. ASG outside would be just as bad as the one played indoors.
