I think the Heritage Classic was a cheesy idea from the start. I went to the one here in Calgary and I've never felt so ripped off. I paid good money for my seat and I couldn't even see the ice. I had a great view of the Canadien's penalty box though. Total rip off.

Sure it's a side-show gimmick but one year off isn't such a bad thing.

Odd, I was at the one in Calgary this year, sitting at the top of the endzone, and my view was fine. Totally worth the money.

I don't mind it. Considering there is only 7 Canadian teams, I think its ok to have some time between these games. Gimmick, sure, but its a good time and making it once every couple years makes it that much more special/whatever you want to call it, in my opinion.

Exactly. Spread it out to every other year or whatever they decide, the novelty wears off that much faster having the game annually.
