I really hope they don’t delay the start of the Winter Classic this year. The weather in Boston looks perfect, so hopefully it won’t be “too much sunlight” as an excuse.
Predictions for next year’s Winter Classic? The game will have to feature at least one of the big NBC favorite teams. I predict the New York Rangers will host the Los Angeles Kings at Yankee Stadium on January 1, 2017. This will get a warm weather team into the classic for the first time, two good teams, two big markets, and two teams with extensive recent playoff runs.
