I think the winter classic is a gimmick (albeit a good one) that will eventually run its course once Yankee Stadium hosts...how many other truly special stadiums left are there? Dodger Stadium, but who wants to see an outdoor hockey game in 60 degree sunshine?
will they do football stadiums like the new meadowlands or Soldier Field?
Why not Dodger Stadium. Hell, the future of the franchise will be skating on thin ice with the McCourts battling each other so why not provide a rink and charge admission.
But then, will the typical SoCal fans show up at the beginning of the second period and leave at the end of it?

Detroit would be a great place for this. Great place to hold it in Comerica Park, it would be good for the city and you know you would get a huge draw, even some from Canada considering its right there.
With the views it provides, PNC would also make a great venue for it. Imagine the shots of Crosby and Malkin on the ice with the city of Pittsburgh behind it. Would be unreal. Bettman would cream himself.

They would probably have to do it at Heinz Field, to accommodate the huge crowds. The turf is all tore up to hell at Heinz anyway around that time of year.
No one can make you
Do what they want to
You know you're stronger
Than the lies
That they tell you
I posted this image back in July...ironically, I just found out today that it was Notre Dame/Army from 1969...
Oh, and there's a huge possibility that my friend and I are getting tickets. Someone came into our work, and he and this lady talked it up, somehow she has a connection and we may be on our way to Boston.
The trop (thunderdome) set up for hockey:
And football (St. Petersburg bowl/UFL):
