Winter Classic Doubleheader In Discussion

In case you missed it earlier, NHL.com did a Q&A with Gary Bettman about the BoG meetings. Here’s this little nugget:

Q: Has there been any talk of having any Canadian teams in the Winter Classic?

A: We had discussion not with the board but over the summer about dong a second Winter Classic this year with two Canadian teams in Canada. That’s something timing-wise we couldn’t make happen, but it’s something we’re going to look at again for next year.


Q: Do you think the issue of second outdoor game in Canada is something that will be looked at again going forward?

A: Yes. If I didn’t say that clearly, it’s something we’re going to look at for next season. We’ll see if we can make that happen.

Overkill on a good idea or a good way to satiate the demands of two markets/TV networks? You make the call! (Said in deep old-school NFL Films voice.)
