A Winter Classic Game In Miami?

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond at the Miami Herald,

Could Miami be in line to host an outdoor hockey Marlinsparkgame as well? Don’t laugh.

Thanks to the new Marlins ballpark – and its retractable roof – ice making experts say an NHL game could be played ‘outdoors’ in South Florida.

Will it ever come to pass? Well, that’s another story.

“It would cost a lot of money to do it, but they’re spending that anyway for these games,’’ said Graham Caplinger, ice technician for the Panthers at BankAtlantic Center. “The NHL has this down to a science. They definitely could do it in Miami. You may lose the spirit of the thing because it will be inside-outside, but I think it would be cool. If it’s in the winter months, I see no reason why you couldn’t do it.’‘
