Imagine that, a team that has already played in the winter classic is in it again! I guess since there are only 30 teams, and it’s hard to find willing participants…

Only the RHL or Regional Hockey League would create an event that can only be played in one area and by just a handful of teams. Brilliant.

I think it’s pretty sketchy how the league awards these. I’m a Wings fan, but I’m not happy with how they do this. I do like them including a Canadian team this time out. That’s positive. I would love to see a west coast team make an appearance next time.

The RHL is pretty much an apt description, unfortunately. I can only imagine how much worse it would be if the Wings were in the East.

This is gonna be so fuching huge.  So thrilled for both teams, the cities of Ann Arbor and Detroit, and the State of Michigan.

Thanks for participating, Toronto.  It was just a matter of time, right?

Two teams that actually play an exciting brand of hockey, in a place that might be cold enough to have good ice.  Probably not, but if there are any teams i want to watch play with the puck bouncing like a tennis ball, it’s these ones.
