Maybe not. If could be marketed as a USA v Canada game, similar to the Bruins v Nucks was during the playoffs.

Good for the Leafs. Glad a Canadian team is getting a chance.

One of those classic "you're showing your age" posts.

Shouldn't you be at a rally against your English speaking head coach?

True. Did hockey even exist prior to the 90's?

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).

It SHOULD be Boston vs. Montreal next year. There isn't a single hockey fan that wouldn't want to see that.

I like the Wings/Leafs news. Hell of a rivalry back in the 90's (I'm an 80's baby)

McKenzie wouldn't put his credibility on the line like this if it weren't a reality.

Bruins vs Habs; One of the best versus one of the worst. Could be interesting but I say wait till Habs are respectable again. Leafs had to wait.

That's not what he means at all. I knew I'd see this once I read his post...

I wish they didn't announce it so early, we have to wait a whole year. It seems so close.
