Yahoo – The National Hockey League on Friday canceled a celebration of hockey that would have reverberated through the generations in Michigan and Toronto. It canceled what would have been the most lucrative event in League history. It canceled the one moment every season when the NHL gets it right, in the eyes of even the most ardent cynics in the U.S. sports media.
On Friday, the NHL canceled the 2013 Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs, scheduled for New Year’s Day.
Wow, I dont know if this is just to light a flame under the players asses or if this will stick but it seems the Winter Classic has been cancelled. Someones got to take a stand quickly or we lose this season. If we lose this season the NHL loses a lot more. Get with the program boys lets play hockey.
