Oh I’m sure plenty of people will see it. But maybe not the same people who were planning to attend the one in 2013. The NHL has announced the cancellation of the game for 2013 and has promised that the next Winter Classic will happen as the 2013 edition was planned: in Michigan, at Michigan, etc.
When they do get around to bringing NHL hockey back, there won’t be the possibility of a lockout wiping out the next Winter Classic, so whenever the next one is, it’s pretty sure to happen. But I won’t blame anyone for letting the disappointment of this cancellation keep them from it.
The NHL’s presuming a lot here, as is the PA, with how the current labor impasse is being handled. I was going to write “how the talks have been handled” there aren’t talks to write about right now. This is pathetic.
