IF there is another outdoor game

It shouldn't be another Canadian team, it should be the Oilers again. Except hold off for about 8 or 10 years and then bring back guys like Weight, Guerin, Niinimaa, Murray, Grier, Marchant, etc. Instead of Ranford/Fuhr have Joseph/Salo split duties in net.

Maybe a dumb idea, but it'd still be cool.

And on a sidenote, a while ago there was talk of other canadian teams doing an outdoor game, are any of those happening? Just out of curiosity.

I only heard Toronto wants to have one at Skydome, and Ken king wants Calgary to have one at McMahon. I think I heard Boston wants to do it too.

I hope the Oilers or anyone else don't, then it will just become a novelty. At least Edmonton did it first.

However many teams want to do this, not one will compare to the original that Edmonton held last November.

How about an outdoor All-Star game?

Edmonton should submit an application for that!

I hope we never, every hold another one. Has everyone already forgot the "Hex of the Heritage Classic" already?

"I hope the Oilers or anyone else don't, then it will just become a novelty. At least Edmonton did it first." , I hear the University of Michigan is going to do it again...

The Oilers were the first ones to do it in the NHL.

Notice how Flames fans always try to degrade our HC - but they cried when Montreal was announced as the opponent and not them.

Didn't the Oilers already present that to the NHL and it got turned down? (Of course that would have been before the idea of the HC came to them.)

It was just that the allstar game was spoken for for like 5 years or something I think.

Maybe the Oils can play Michigan state in the battle of the largest outdoor game holders of all time game, it would have to be in Michigan though on account they came up with the idea first, it could be a joint NCAA-NHL event with the points counting toward each teams respective league play...

Although I'd love to see the Habs play another outdoor game, if Edmonton wants to host another it should be against the Islanders. They always had classic battles during both their dynasties, and the players are all around the same age.

I'd say Boston. Don't argue with me, just do it!
