Rangers/Flyers Winter Classic

From the Dreger Report.

The Flyers will likely face the New York Rangers, but the Rangers are waiting for confirmation of their involvement.




The idea of watching John Tortorella co-exist with cameras invading the sanctity of his dressing room and private quarters will almost guarantee huge ratings for HBO's 24/7 leading up to the Winter Classic.

Each road team in the WC has been promised a home game.

Don't really care as long as the Rangers play in the WC.

Also, link?

I'd go to Philly to see that. Prefer to go to NYC. Whatever, I'll fork it over. Bet it'll be $800+/seat on Stub Hub

Seeing 24/7 with Torts may be the greatest thing of my life.

I REALLY hope Avery is able to earn a third or fourth line role just for that.

I don't understand, if they can use a baseball stadium that doesn't have tons of history and isn't a big name park such as CBP, how come Citi can't be used?

Torts and Laviolette in 24/7 would be awesome.

If this is true, how would we purchase tickets if we aren't a STH? Do we have to be in that lottery?

Yankees boss Lon Trost on was Boomer and Carton earlier this week. Boomer asked about the Winter Classic. Trost said he has spoken to Bettman about hosting a game one week after January 1. The NHL doesn't want to change the date.

The NHL wants Yankee Stadium to host a Winter Classic in NY. It obvious. They want no part of Citi Field or having a game at the Meadowlands.

You don't know what I would do to get there, and it's not even a home game. Hope this is true.

I'd love it, even if it has to be in Philthy.

Son, I am disappoint.

NYC is far superior Philly. We should be the host, not a second tier city. They are asking us to go slumming.

The potential for 24/7 far outweighs the home field location. I agree with the Avery comment too.

I care because this was an event I planned on attending if it was going to be held in this area.... Certainly not traveling to Philthy for this game now.
