I don't get the hate on the proposed 2013 Winter Classic. They are including two of the most popular, if not the most popular franchises in the League. They are going to the largest venue in the country where they sold out an outdoor college game. What do you expect them to do Columbus vs Minnesota? They are using the same teams because they are the teams that will get the most viewership and are teams that are in area where having an outdoor game is possible.

To anyone who says the event is "old" or "played out" already. Try going to one and you'll have a different opinion. I went to the first one in Buffalo and it was easily the best sporting event I've ever attended. It was like Woodstock or Lolapalooza for hockey fans. I'll be doing my best to be in Ann Arbor for this game if that is in fact the plan for next year.
