nhl winter classic
The NHL’s New Year’s Day Winter Classic between the Maple Leafs and Red Wings is on the chopping block, a potential early victim of the lockout.
A league source told the Star that, barring a settlement, commissioner Gary Bettman plans to cancel it in November — to take away any advantage the players may have at the bargaining table because of the game’s popularity.
“Gary told (the board of governors) he was going to cancel the Winter Classic in November because he didn’t want the players to use the game as leverage,” the source said.
Really hope this gets settled so we can see an awesome hockey game in the Big House this winter.

That could just be referring to everyone talking about it now though.
Sources tell me reports of winter classic in the big house are premature. No talks about event yet
