The dirty little secret of the Winter Classic has always been that's more fun to watch on TV anyway.
The danger I see is when casual fans go to a "Winter Classic series" game in a football stadium and decide that it isn't worth paying money to see
game live. NHL fans pay a lot of money to attend a game in person. The league should be very careful not to make them feel that they aren't getting value for that experience.
