How would LA host an outdoor game if the cold east coast weather struggles to hold the ice up well?

they did an outdoor game in vegas 20 years ago, i'm sure they could figure out the technology to do it now (i mean we've come within a degree of absolute zero in a lab setting lol )

feel like it's a dumb idea to have multiple outdoor games though, even with one being the rangers. going to take a lot away from the winter classic.

I can't imagine what the ticket prices would be. Even soccer game ticket prices at Yankee Stadium are $$....

Leave it to the NHL to ruin a good thing. Can never help themselves.

I can't wait until they price all the tickets above $200 and the place is empty.

So if we are the visitors for both games, that means Islander and Devil season ticket holders have priority over us for getting seats?

Two games three days apart would be awful. NHL can't come up with any original marketing ideas so they're going to milk the one good thing they have. The NHL is the EA of professional sports leagues.

The WC is special because it is only once a year.

I think it's cool to have games at different arenas outdoors, but the aura of the WC is diminished.

Also, Rangers are the away team twice?

Since we were the away team for the Winter Classic we deserve to be the Home team for at least one of these games. Are they seriously going to sound the goal horn when the Devils score in Yankee stadium?

I am guessing they want to capitalize on the Super Bowl hype. Could be quite a sports week in NY.

Two back to back outdoor games vs. rivals and we're away for both.

Let me guess, construction at MSG the excuse this time around?

Just what a mentally weak team needs. On top of the inevitable Europe start with 8 games in 10 days, followed by a 3 month road trip with the first game against the defending stanley cup champions when they raise their banner.

Wonder how this'll work out for season ticket holders.

Knowing Yankee Stadium though, no special deals, super expensive everything.

If I remember correctly, we were offered tickets to the game in Philly by the Rangers. I said no to the original questionnaire, and they still offered me tickets, so I imagine the season ticket holders will be offered seats.
