So funny. Cracks me up just as much when younger Bruins and Leafs fans talk about the Bruins-Leafs as "historical rivals" in the same context as Bruins-Habs. Other than being original six teams, the Bruins were far bigger rivals with the Sabres, Nordiques, and Whalers for most of their modern history.
Can anyone point out where Winter Classic has been deemed an American event? I read lots of people saying it, but I don't think that's been the case despite it being used to showcase American teams thus far.
Let's be serious though.. The Leafs likely have more appeal in the USA as a whole than any single team that could be showcased. This will have the highest ratings in Canada AND the USA compared to any previous Winter Classic.
.. And nobody cares if you're not watching (even though you will be).
