Hockey Day in Canada

So now there are 7 Canadian teams. This will mean that for the short term that one of teh 7 teams will get dropped on the now classic HDIC triple header.

Who's it gonna be?

I vote for the Leafs!!!

I also vote that all 3 games be outdoor heritage classics!!!!

Hoping we're getting dropped out of this. CBC is garbage and I'd be very pleased to see less Sens games on their channel each year (glad this year there was less).

I'm guessing the 4th match-up would be Ottawa-Buffalo, Toronto-Detroit, or Montreal-Boston.

We'll definitely get some random American team (Buffalo seems about right). CBC doesn't give a **** about us.

I've always thought it'd be cool if they gave every Canadian city a home game that day, and just split the network east/west (most people have timeshifting anyway, so they can watch whichever game they want. As an example:

1:00: Buffalo-Ottawa / Minnesota-Winnipeg
4:00: Boston-Montreal / San Jose-Calgary
7:00: Detroit-Toronto / Los Angeles-Edmonton
10:00: Chicago-Vancouver

(I just picked random teams for Calgary and Edmonton to play, since I really don't know who their non-Canadian rivals are)

The downside to this is that you'd either need seven broadcast crews, or you'd have crews calling one game live and then another one while watching a monitor.

If they drop ANY team on HDIC it flies in the face of everything it is supposed to be. Is there enough time in the day to actually have 4 games not overlap? Id bet we get a noon game against an American team.

Noon: Ottawa v Buffalo (maybe Detroit, but Id bet Buffalo. Thats about as Canadian as an American team can be)
3pm: Toronto v Montreal (no brainer)
7pm: Winnipeg v Vancouver (the shiny new team and the potential reigning champs in primetime)
10pm: Calgary v Edmonton (leftovers)

After the shiny newness of the Peg wears off, I think our days as the redheaded Canadian team are done though.

I really think Detroit would make the most sense as the lone american team.

-Close proximity to the border, same could be said for Buff, but the wings are original 6 and draw a much bigger fan base

-Old time Toronto-Detroit Rivalry

-many connections to Canada with that team(Babcock for starters)

How about

Oilers - Winnipeg
Flames - Canucks
Leafs - Canadiens

And for Canada, we represent our Country in the battle of the capitals

Sens vs Caps

Every Canadian team is on the ice, and we main event and kick the states capital ass!


Thoughts ?

Winnipeg is the newbie. They should play Minnesota. That or the Leafs should be out. They can play on Hockey Day in the Universe.

They're going to want to build up the old Edmonton-Winnipeg rivalry I think, which is why I could see that match-up as part of HDIC.
