My ranking of potential Winter Classic/outdoor NHL regular season events- from best idea to worst:

1. Boston: Fenway Park, Habs v Bruins... make it so
2. NYR: Rangers v Islanders... it would be 10x more intense than Giants v Jets
3. Toronto: Leafs v Habs... even if the MLS stadium is only 20,000 or whatever (Rogers Centre has NO drainage)
4. Detroit: Wings v Penguins... 2 most entertaining teams
5. Edmonton: Oilers v Flames... would be amazing
6. Vancouver: Canucks v Leafs or Canadiens... national audience would love it
7. Chicago: Rangers v Blackhawks at Soldier Field... now we're talkin'!
8. Pittsburgh: Heinz Field would be fun, have the Pens face the Flyers
9. Tampa Bay: outdoor rink for 3hrs should work, versus the Leafs (Toronto Gulf coasters)
10.Montreal: v the Leafs
11.Calgary: v Edmonton
12.Philadelphia: bring the Rangers in
13.Buffalo: been there, done that- invite a team from the sun belt
14.Minnesota: find a football field & play the RedWings
15.Dallas: v New York Rangers
16.Los Angeles: v Detroit
17.Ottawa: have Ovechekin's Capitals come in for a cheesy battle of the capitals
18.Colorado: against Minnesota would be neat
19.New Jersey: play a team from out west
20.Phoenix: against any northern team, maybe even in Las Vegas somehow
21.Florida: Dolphin stadium would be crazy, bring in the Canadiens (Montreal Atlantic coasters)
22.Anaheim: against any team east of the Mississippi
23.Carolina: with an Atlantic division team
24.Washington: probably with Pittsburgh
25.NYI: with the Rangers
26.Atlanta: a Canadian team
27.San Jose: eastern team
28.Columbus: & a Canadian team
29.St. Louis: with any original 6 team
30.Nashville: against anyone
