04:33 PM ET 04.04 | The NHL has scheduled an announcement for Sunday morning at Joe Louis Arena, the league announced on Thursday morning. A league press release details the "NHL special event press conference" and jersey unveiling that will be held at the home of the Red Wings at 10:30 a.m. ET. Obviously, this leads one to believe that the league is planning to formally announce that the Winter Classic will be hosted by the Detroit Red Wings. Previous reports have stated that the cancelled 2013 Winter Classic between the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs will be scheduled for 2014. In essence, same time, same place new date.

I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself! Almost as excited as getting a root canal done.

I don't pay attention to the Winter Classic unless forced to.

No one else is making any noise so go for it.

I hope they simply duplicate the game scheduled for last winter. While I wouldn't actually want to attend it, I enjoy it on TV.

I'm more interested in the alumni game(s). Would also like to pull Stevie Y, Shanny and Fedorov from their managerial duties for a couple days to get them on the ice together one last time.

I wonder if they are going to have all the other events original planned to go with it--an AHL (and OHL?) all-star game, winterfest, and the like.
