REPORT: Caps to host 2015 Winter Classic at Nationals Park

Post by CFCNick on Sat Sep 21, 2013 2:04 am

Title says it all really. A few D.C. based media people have all mentioned the possibility of the Caps hosting next seasons Winter Classic at Nationals Park.

Puck Daddy suggest if true then possible opponents will be those to generate viewing figures for NBC like the Pens, Rangers, Flyers and Bruins.

If it is the Caps who would you want them to host?

One crazy yahoo commenter tried suggesting Dallas could host an outdoor game.

Weren't they planning on having like 10 outdoor games? Anyway, if it was about viewing figures it would be the Canadian teams and/or original six.

They will play the Pens again so we can all continue the great Crosby v Ovechkin battle for the millionth time.

Dallas isn't as crazy an idea as it sounds. Dallas v Phoenix is the game they should pick. At least it would be if they were serious about the non traditional hockey markets.

Hope not. That would be too predictable.

Obviously the Bruins get my vote. But I'd also be happy with any original six team or any of the Canadian teams.

Apparently there'll be 5 outdoor games next season. WC + HC + 3 others. If the LA-Anaheim game goes well then they'll "strongly" consider San Jose hosting.
