Yankee and Dodger stadiums (and maybe more) to host NHL outdoor games?

NHL needs to not compete against college football's NYD games. Move it to mid-January or the week between the AFC/NFC title games and the Super Bowl. That might be best.
As for LA, it gets mighty cool downtown at Dodgers games in the summer. In mid/late January I bet a sheet of ice could survive a couple of days, especially if it'd be an evening game.
Denver should absolutely host one soon, although I realize the Avs aren't the national franchise they were 10 years ago. St. Louis/Busch Stadium would rock and they have the weather, but the Blues aren't a national team.
Heck, Dallas gets terrible weather in January. It's not constant is the problem, but if conditions were right it would be acceptable. I realize it's hard to predict that for that area. But the Cotton Bowl was frozen out of the BCS in the 90s because of the poor weather in North Texas in Januarys so I know it would happen. It'd be nice to see it in the Cotton Bowl or something.
