Love the spectacle of the outdoor game, but truth is, not one of these games has been really well played, that said, question, which would Bruin fans prefer for "entertainment" Bruins vs. Habs, or Bruins vs Nucks??? Nucks not a real rival, but a team well disliked here and the donnybrook potential is through the roof with them and THAT, can be entertaining
According to a Fourth Period Magazine report, the NHL is considering multiple outdoor games aside from the Winter Classic starting as soon as next season. Several hockey sources have confirmed to CSNNE.com that it’s been seriously discussed since the beginning of the 48-game abbreviated season as a logical way to build back some of the revenues lost during the painful NHL lockout.
The rescheduled 2014 Winter Classic set to be staged at “The Big House” in Ann Arbor, Michigan between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs should break revenue records and become a merchandising bonanza for the NHL.
The Fourth Period said that both Yankee Stadium in New York City and Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles are settings being eyed for outdoor hockey games next season. A source indicated to CSNNE.com that any outdoor game in Boston involving the Bruins over the next few years “would most likely be played at Gillette Stadium” and that Boston is “in the discussion for another outdoor game in the near future.”
