don't be surprised if we get a flyers-penguins winter classic in philly next year. i would prefer the rangers as they rightfully deserve to participate in the classic, but this is the NHL/NBC and he is crosby so...
I've heard the same about Paterno. Apparently he's absolutely against all that construction on the field, and nothing gets done on that field without his approval.
As for Flyers-Penguins, I'm sure it can happen, but it won't be next year. The NHL may love touting Crosby and the Pens, but I don't think they'll get back to back Winter Classics. There'll be at least a year or two in between. But I'm sure that, at least during Crosby's career, the Pens will be in the Classic more than anyone else.
