12:43 PM ET 02.20 | A report in the Toronto Star states that the NHL is expected to soon announce that the 2014 Winter Classic will feature the same teams from the canceled 2013 game, as the Toronto Maple Leafs will face the Detroit Red Wings in Michigan for next year's game. The event is expected to be the biggest yet for the NHL, with over 100,000 fans likely headed to the outdoor venue to catch the annual event that has proven to be a financial boon for the league over the years.

It'll be a huge crowd..... in for what would at this point be a lacklustre game.

I live an hour away and I wouldn't waste that much gas driving there with free tickets....but they'll draw a huge crowd

I say they should take it a step further: Leafs vs. Red Wings vs. live lions that have been fed gunpowder. And for first intermission entertainment, the ground will open near the north end zone and Gary Bettman will officially be inducted into the 7th ring of hell.

You've finally agreed to forgive and forget huh?

How about having it this July in Tuktoyaktuk? The weather should be perfect for such an outdoor event by then.
