Why bother watching them? OU's gonna roll all over them.

Might as well as stick with the Rangers full-time.

I'm a Ranger fan so...what else is better than that?

But truthfully I'd rather watch a WJC game if the USA was playing--maybe even Canada than Garry Bettman's event--though I am curious to see if the Caps and Pens will be skating around on a puddle tonight. It would give new meaning to the term 'pond hockey'.

Screw the Crosby Classic, this is the fourth one and the Penguins get it yet again. Do not give them ratings, watch the Rangers..

Winter classic?


I'd sooner watch f***ing Heidi.

I am so sick of the NHL ruining hockey to try and make it bigger.

I'm going to watch the Rangers game and switch over during intermissions. I'm all in favor of the winter classic, I think it's great for our sport. Keep in mind that we're in the largest market in the country and it wouldn't take much longer for us to get a classic game if we keep up our level of play like this.

I hear that!

It's bad enough Crosby had to be in the first one 5 minutes away from me here in Buffalo. I kinda had no choice but to watch that one.

Chicago and Detroit at least makes sense and at such a classic place in Wrigley.

As much as I hate EVERY Boston and Philly team ever in existance, that one wasn't too bad and I watched it. Two very recognizable logos and teams at least.

Crosby and Ovechkin in Pittsburgh? No thanks. I'll pass.

Let's go Rangers!

im really happy most people are choosing nyr over wc. I agree 100% and I will be watching the rangers on my parent's nice huge HD plasma screen TV on MSGHD! Of course i'll check out the wc inbetween periods, might have it up on the computer while the game in, but my attention will be directed at the rangers game

This. Why would you ever choose any game ahead of a NYR game?

There's another game besides the Rangers? I would never have known. It's not like we've seen any advertisements or anything.

Ill be watching the best player in the lg play tonight .........Stamkos.......someone please tell Bettman there are stars in this sport that dont turn the stomach of real hockey fans.
The NHL is bending over backwards to make hockey stick in the south...and here they have a legit star in the south that in universally liked and respected.... and he goes almost ignored by the lg's pr machine.

rangers for me. id rather watch it on my laptop with gamecenter than the WC on a real tv. what does that tell you? if bettman wants the league to prosper, he should give the other teams a little attention and publicity while not force feeding his little girlfriend down our throats.

Easily the Rangers for me.

I probably wouldn't even have watched the WC if it wasn't postponed. I used to like watching it because outdoor hockey in front of a huge crowd was an amazing sight, but it's really starting to get old and I will only watch it if the matchup interests me. And that media inflated rivalry about who is the bigger poster boy for the league doesn't interest me one bit.

I'm not watching the WC because it was postponed. Would've been sweet to watch it with some friends yesterday, but it's Rangers all the way without a doubt.

Because ESPNamerica has the WC on tonight and I can't get MSG or Sun sports over here, I'll have the WC on mute on my tv and watch the Rangers game on my mac on ESPNplayer. LGR!

You guys have still got it live tonight? ESPN America aren't showing it live here now because of the clashes with football.
