Boston Bruins v. Philadelphia Flyers, Jan. 1

IMO- If the Bruins are hosting the Winter Classic- they shouldn't be playing anyone except the Canadiens

Boston can suck it. I bet you'll see more Red Sox hats than Bruins hats.

This is a common sentiment throughout hockey forums on teh intratubes. Supposedly, the idea is a future one will be in Canada with Toronto vs Montreal or something equally stupid.

Most likely I could see Boston vs Washington. Just for ratings reasons. They should have a second outdoor game, Toronto vs Montreal IMO.

NBC will never put a Canadian team in the game...they'll lose a TV market if they do.

I don't agree with having two outdoor games in one day. Even if it was two American teams and two Canadian teams, you are still possibly taking away from the ratings of the games, which in turn will make you less money. Plus, the excitement of the one game a season outdoors gets dwindled down IMO.

I think the specialness of the outdoor games have already been worn out. It needs to happen every two years.
