My meaning was poorly conveyed there. I was using hardcore as in hardcore Carolina/Columbus fans. The NHL is going to have marquee teams play in the Winter Classic because casual fans will watch those teams, instead of having a matchup like Carolina/Columbus where only their respective hardcore fans would be interested.

I deride your truth handling abilities

Not only for the rivalry aspect, but logistically it's pretty stupid. I'm sure Hawks fans travel, but would you really want to fly to DC, spend New Years there to watch them play the Capitals?

It would be like Nashville hosting the Flyers for the WC. What's the ****ing point?

The whole thing is played out anyway. I honestly couldn't care less if the Flyers never played in one again.

Bettman & Co. ran the whole idea into the ground over the years.

One regular season game is April 11, 2015 against Ottawa in Philadelphia. Could be the home or season finale.

The calendar is late this year, but there is no Olympics. That's probably the last weekend of the season. Most assuredly the last home game, I can only think of one other time the Flyers played back to back at home, although it was the last two games of the season.
