A potential Tortorella classic

The New York Post's Larry Brooks has an idea for the next "Winter Classic moment," if you will:

The Winter Classic is a great event — NHL outdoor games all have been colossal successes on either a local or national stage — but let’s face it, there are few great (inter)national matchups available to command attention beyond the spectacle itself.

You know what would represent a compelling matchup that apparently is nowhere on the league’s agenda? John Tortorella’s Blue Jackets against the Penguins at Ohio State, that’s what.

Seriously.

Can you imagine? Potential combined charges of collusion and whining? Maybe the NHL can and that’s why it would have nothing to do with it.

Instead, get ready for either Rangers-Leafs in Toronto or Penguins-Flyers in either respective city’s pro football stadium.

Yawn.

Brooks continues with more on Brad Marchand and Henrik Lundqvist vs. Corey Schneider
