Winter Classic Lives For Another Day Or Two Weeks

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

The NHL will not cancel the Winter Classic on Friday and is not expected to do so before Nov. 15.

But exactly when the league, which has locked out the players, will call off the annual outdoor game is the subject of some conjecture, even among those who have spoken to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly. Some sources say Bettman believes Nov. 15 is the last possible day to make a decision because of the preparations involved for the game, between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings and planned for Jan. 1 at the University of Michigan’s 115,000-seat stadium.
