I would expect three outdoor games next year based on all of this. One in December in Winnipeg. Winter Classic, Rangers-Maple Leafs. And a Stadium Series game somewhere in the U.S.

Not sure who would be a logical opponent for Winnipeg to make it a Heritage Classic game, especially if Toronto would be hosting its own game.


You raise a fine question about the Winnipeg opponent. We never saw speculation. Minnesota, Chicago, Edmonton, and Calgary leap to mind.

With that much "Canada," there will be a Stadium Series of all-American teams. I could see Buffalo in that mix.


Or, the Winter Classic simply doesn't happen in Toronto given the World Cup of Hockey, the Grey Cup and World Junior Championship are all happening there in the winter of 2016/17.


This is why some Canadians hate Gary Bettman. We have a leak where he "wants to give Toronto the game" but there are leaked reasons why it likely won't happen. The only direct conflict is the World Juniors. Toronto can handle both.

Same crap with Winnipeg. U.S. cities don't have to go through this.
