The big announcement today from the NHL was that next year’s Winter Classic will take place at the Big House, home of the University of Michigan Wolverines. This is a very nice venue and I expect it to be a great turnout.
They’ve held hockey games in this stadium before and have drawn over 100,000 in attendance. This Winter Classic should have no problem drawing that crowd since it is Hockeytown.
The matchup between the Wings and the Leafs should be good too. Well, the Leafs aren’t that great of a team but they are the big Canadian team and it will surely draw a lot of interest going up against one of the league’s most consistent teams.
