The whole point is that one time a year we see a spectacle. Now you've got the NY metro teams playing in a 3-day span. The Rangers have two friggin outdoor games in a row!

If we had simply the Winter Classic, and then Vancouver and Ottawa in the Heritage Classic, that would be fine. But the rest of this...such a blatant publicity stunt/money grab. It'll ruin the nature of outdoor games going forward, but the NHL can't be bothered to figure out what's best for its own future.

And LA/ANA in Dodger Stadium? Good luck with the ice in that one dickweeds.
