I'm unsure how previous Winter Classic revenue is split or distributed amongst teams.

Also: Kudos to the mods and admins here. It's not an easy job in the best of times.
Doesn't make sense because it would bring the owner's share down as well. I take it more that the NHL doesn't want to spend money on something that may not happen. It is not just the cost of the stadium but the sponsors invest money in ads and promotions and give aways. Can't have player X selling tires for 3 months if there is no game. Can't have HBO doing 2 months of promo
