I can't see how the Rangers aren't at least the visiting team next year. They have to get the two teams who would draw the most ratings in order to make that new TV deal look more attractive to potential bidders.
Starting 2012 there will be a run of about 4 years in a row where Jan 2 will be a weekday. We just saw the potential for inclement weather wiping out the event. If the game is cancelled Sun-Thur, the NHL will lose the event. They should have two WC on NYD in two separate parts of the country. One Eastern and say one Mid-West.
