I love the Winter Classic. Considering how big it would be this year in Michigan Stadium, it sucks to see it go.
It's actually not that early. Figure they need 2-3 weeks to prepare the rink and stadium alone. It's nearly the end of November. That gives them 5-6 weeks to prepare logistically for the event, order things, etc etc. All that is work they would have gotten done now and in the last month barring no lockout. Instead, nothing's been done. If they waited much longer I don't think they'd realistically have enough time to finish everything off.
Of course, unless Michigan Stadium starts running into events in January or February, I'm sure they can always postpone it.
