The last 2 years they were played in 2 of the most historic stadiums in sports, in Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.
I'm not trying bash the Mets or anything, but Winter Classic at Citi Field lacks that wow factor.
The NHL is probably looking for an event with large capacity (75,000+) or some kind of historic building or some other kind of lure.
The NHL probably doesn't think Citi Field fits the bill.
On the other hand, it's New York.
