The next NHL outdoor Game?

Apperntly there is a possibility that the Rangers would play the Islanders at Yankee Stadium on January 1st. Right now the problem is if Yankee Stadium could support such an event with it's age and the time to put it together. I would assume if Fenway can host a hockey game the Stadium could. If it does end up taking place the game would be on NBC.

Kind of wish it would be a Devils-Rangers game though.

there is still nothing i'd enjoy more than seeing a heritage classic between the stars and the wild.

host it in minnesota. stars wearing the north stars sweaters from 1967, and the wild wearing their old school reds.

the alumni game can be retired members of the stars/northstars/wild (if the wild even have any retired players yet), randomly put onto two teams. both teams can wear north stars jerseys, since both teams share the history of the north stars.

i'd love nothing more than that.

That'd be cool, Cole, but you'd have to wait until 2009, when the new Gopher football stadium is supposed to open, or 2010, when the Twins are to open their new stadium.

Not necessarily. Minnesota and Minnesota-Duluth were discussing playing at the Metrodome for a while, but the schools decided that it was too costly. There's no reason that the Wild couldn't pull it off...

edit - I found an old Inside College Hockey.com story that mentions both the Metrodome game, and the Fenway games (both BC and BU are playing, but not each other). See the last paragraph...

But if it's played at the Metrodome it would be inside.

I heard that any "outdoor" hockey game in Minnesota involving the Gophers would not be happening at the Metrodome, but would likely be held on campus at the new Gopher Football stadium after it's completed.

Which is a good thing in my mind. Your outdoor hockey game really should be, well, outdoors now, shouldn't it?

Well, yeah, it should be outdoors. However, that doesn't change the fact that a year ago (before the reality of TCF Bank Stadium in 2009 existed) the Gophers and Bulldogs were talking about playing at the Metrodome... Now, should they (or the Wild, for that matter) wait until the new outdoor Gopher football stadium is built? I suppose, but they could still have a game in the Dome if they wanted... No one's don't that, as far as I know...

They should have one at PNC. It'll draw alto more than the Mellon Arena would, and it has a great view of the city. Of course Pittsburgh isnt quite as cold as NY, Boston, Montreal, etc.

It's been done. The Lightning used to play their home games at what is now called Tropicana Field.
