Winter Classic II: Good or Bad?

Post  Riddler1225 on Fri Sep 19, 2008 4:51 pm

Just was wandering everyone's opinions on this.

Last year the Winter Classic was a hit in Nebraska, lots of interest, especially for those seeing Sid for the first time, but the hype leading into this years game, at least around here is a bit lulled. (Which is a little odd, since both teams are in closer proximity)

What's your guys' take on Winter Classic II?

This is actually Winter Classic III
The first one was a few years ago in Edmonton between the Oilers and Canadians if my memory serves me right...
Even Gretzky was out on the ice for the old timers game before the main event...

Winter Classic III will get a ton of attention once the season starts...
It should have been done at Yankee stadium with the Rangers and another original six team though... that would have been amazing.

Im happy with it just because I love the redwings, and I know a lot of people who love the blackhawks!

So it should be an interesting matchup, hopefully the away team wins again! Go wings!

Loooove the winter classics, as long as they keep it to once a year, with teams that people care about (i.e. not the Florida Panthers or Pheonix Coyotes)...However seeing as how it is the 100th anniversary of the canadiens, and every other event is being held there this season (all-star game, draft, etc...) I think it should've been in or around Montreal, with the habs playing the Bruins or the Leafs.

I was hoping to go to this year's but the tickets are obscenely priced...

No matter though, that game will mark the changing of the guard in the central division...The Red Wings will get crushed!!!!

(lol hey a guy can hope can't he??)
