Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ted Leonsis of Ted’s Take,
I appreciate NBC and NBC Sports and Comcast as partners to the NHL.
Recently one of their columnist’s wrote an article that stated the Winter Classic would be coming to Washington DC in 2014. And that – as an out of the box idea – it could be played on the National Mall. Unnamed sources were used as the quotes in the story.
This article has activated a series of emails to me about ticket availability; and suggestions about venues; pricing; demands on seating locations and like-minded communications.
So – to set the record straight – there has NOT been any communication to us on a formal basis as to a Winter Classic coming to DC in a specific year. I have been told that the Winter Classic will NOT be coming to DC next year though. I have also been assured that because of the size of our fan base – and the beauty of our city – that a Winter Classic would come to Washington DC; at some point in the future. And that is good enough for me.
