You mean, putting it in Pittsburgh wasn't a good idea? Who could have seen this coming?

Oh wait, everybody.

As much as I'm annoyed that the NHL's lust for forcing Pittsburgh down our throats caused them to be in a second Winter Classic already, this would really suck. I like the Winter Classic, regardless of who's on the ice.

Agreed. I'd be much more upset on the count of rain ruining the Winter Classic than snow ruining last nights Eagles game. There is some consolation though this year if it gets rained out, the Heritage Classic is just about 7 weeks later. I'd still rather them try to get it in between any possible showers though. A night-time WC would be pretty sweet if the lights aren't an issue.

A night game would be great. I'd love to see someone score by lobbing the puck straight up so the goalie loses it in the night sky and lights.

It's weird watching Steve Mason. He looks like a goalie that was relevant in the 90s. He looks very much stand up and so on.

If the WC isn't played this year it pretty much puts to rest the hope that the Flyers will get one in Philly. IMO

They'll run out of sites pretty quick then.


The Caps and Flyers have both been promised that they'll get to host one regardless.

I still think a Pens vs Flyers outdoor game at Beaver Stadium would kick serious ass.

The first one in Edmonton was at night, or at least ended at night. Brutally cold (remember the pic of Theodore in a toque over his helmet?), but I can't remember what time it started.

Started at 5:26 PM local time and ended at 7:55 PM. With the wind chill it felt like an astounding -22 degrees fahrenheit. That's ridiculous.

Maybe it's just me, but I would love to see this years Winter Classic rained out. Hate this Crosby-Ovechkin crap shoved down our throats. Should be two western teams this year ... January 1 in Denver 33 and sunny ... should have been SJ @ Colorado or something like that.

the college game that was played just a few weeks ago ended at night as well.

I hope it gets rained out just for the lulz.

lately it seems every time I bench Vokoun he gets a shutout or gets one of his 38 save 1 goal allowed wins, when I start him he gives up 3 or more goals and loses.
that is ne of my keeper leagues I have Vokoun,Kipper and Bobrovsky.

The 21-year-old - a healthy scratch for the fifth time in the past 12 games on Monday - appeared to take out some frustrations out on Tomas Plekanec during battle drills before jawing with Maxim Lapierre.
Quote:
While the confrontation with Plekanec was described as nothing more than players challenging each other during a drill, defenceman Roman Hamrlik was forced to step in between Subban and Lapierre before things got out of hand.
Now, that would probably be a fight of the year right there. Both would talk each other into a coma.

Hamrlik was probably getting cold.

There's a story going around that Paul Devorski flipped the bird to some Blue Jackers fans

Highly unprofessional, if it's true. But the league wouldn't do anything about it anyway.

How many picks do we have next year? I know we do not have 2nd and we have 1st and I think we have a few 3rd round picks?

Is there a web site that keeps track of it?

Was his plan to warm up from the hot air emanating from their mouths?

I know. Its part of the whole thing, Kipper on the bench gets a win. Last year every move I made turned out gold and I won the league championship. this year its been not as great even tho I am contending I am having to battle every week.

Daryl Sutter resigned as Calgary GM today.

Jay Feaster has been named as his interim replacement.
