Do you view the winter classic as a special game, or just a regular season game?

At the end of the day, it's obviously just another regular season game, but because of what it is (an rare outdoor hockey game with a ton of media coverage), it's more important.
They should consider replacing the AS game with another outdoor game, maybe one only in Canada to ensure brutal cold weather like the first outdoor game with the Habs, now that looked COLD!
I have never liked the AS game in any sport except for Baseball since it does have some meaning on the season. Unless you are in the city it is happening in no one even cares, to me a useless event where good players risk injury for nothing ala Richter.
