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'.
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.
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
Now that the Winter Classic is moved to 8, it conflicts with part of the Ranger game. Which will you watch live (I'm sure many of us will watch one and DVR the other)? I'm going with Ranger game...easy decision for me...
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.
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.
