Didn't jagr play an outdoor game in KHL? Think it was an all star game. Briere also has played outdoors. What outdoor experience do we have? Rupp? lol
Hagelin has played outdoors twice

So pumped for this one. It'll be ugly, but as long the good guys win then it doesn't matter.

Its much colder today than yesterday. That wind hits you in the face and it feels much colder than 40 degrees. Its supposed to be colder later this afternoon when the first cold blast of winter hits on Tuesday.

Hearing Ranger D-man Marc Staal is playing today in the Winter Classic..
Not sure I believe him, as I don't see it reported anywhere else.

Torts said same lineup as last game RT @mbramy: @AGrossRecord @stevezipay some reports of Staal returning today. Any truth behind them?

If Staal is really playing today, that is awesome! I hope they don't rush him back. Don't want anything to happen to him like to Cindy Crosby. LETS GO RANGERS! Going to be at the bar with a group of people.

If Staal really is playing today, please be smart about it. Don't just rush him back and let him play because it's the Winter Classic. The last thing he needs to is play today while he's not 100% and get hurt again just because it's outside and nationally televised.

It's going to be a lot of fun. Seeing them in the full uniform at practice yesterday was great. Really like the jersey but with the full uni it just looks great. Once the puck drops though this is about getting two points. Asserting ourselves as the class of the Atlantic Division and right up there with the Bruins. It's time to really get it through the heads of teams like the Flyers and Penguins that we're not the team we've been the past few years. This is a young team that they're going to be looking up at for a long time. Let's go boys.

"Lundqvist: I don't like Rangers"

I don't get the joke. Is it just a misprint?

It's supposed to say Flyers. NHL.com is just dumb.

Pretty sure brother Jordan came back during the WC last year after the foot infection. It would be appropriate if Marc was able to as well, being cleared for contact only a week ago, it seems possible, but unlikely.

Pretty sure it's called common sense.

Why wouldn't he play in the Winter Classic? There's zero reasons. He's cleared for contact, and has been practicing for over a month.

You think he's gonna opt out of the Winter Classic?

Dumbest thing ever..

EJ Hradek reported it as a strong possibility, then Buccigross had it as happening. Seems the ESPN/NHL.com boys have the inside track on some news.

This is a time when I want to hear what Uncle Larry says as he's normally pretty quick on getting this info
