(TSN)   What's this, two days in a row of outdoor NHL level hockey? Yep, today's matchup features the Rangers & Devils playing in Yankee Stadium (which in January is a more logical place for hockey than LA). Puck drop @ 12:30 ET   (tsn.ca) divider line 276
    More: Cool, Yankee Stadium, Martin Brodeur, New York Rangers, NHL, Peter DeBoer, New Jersey Devils, Anaheim Ducks, Maple Leafs

Saying hockey shouldn't be played where it doesn't get to freezing temperatures is like saying baseball and football shouldn't be played where you have to water the lawn.

I frequently say that regular season baseball should not be played in Florida. Has nothing to do with the climate, though.

Hey all. Glad we got a thread for this.

derpy: NHL Hockey is a "minor sport" because:

1) 'Mericuh
2) FITE/Torts
3) Pierre
4) All of the Above


My take?

1) The expense of getting all the equipment/ice fees to get kids playing. The NHL and USA hockey do a decent job offsetting this, but will never be able do so completely.
2) They have no interest in building superstars (like the NBA and NFL do) because that requires pinache and flamboyance, and hockey culture despises that.
3) Casual viewers are too lazy to strain their eyes to follow the puck, or at least just look which way the players heads are facing, to postulate where the puck is.

Go Devs and go Marty!!

/actually, I'm predicting Rangers pull this one out cuz the home crowd.

FTFA: NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told NBC's Pierre McGuire they anticipate a 1:35 p.m. ET start for the game.

Why do people even talk to him?

Sun delay?  That's got to be a new one for every hockey team ever (well, except of course those who play pond hockey...)

The Rush in the background is pretty cool though.

Talking heads just need to shut it & let us listen to the music & watch the kids

To each their own. I'm just posting what my porn stumbleupon account fetches. Oddly, the one after that was a page about child allergies. I don't know how to take that.

We have one of the best logos in all of sports. AND we almost always make the playoffs. Why the fark don't we look into good alternate jerseys?!?! Fark, "Jersey" is where we play!! It's in the name! I used to be giddy when I would get a new New Jersey jersey!!

Hey subby, both teams said the ice in LA was fine last night. Technology has progressed to the point where you can make ice at home.

Actually the announcers and a player interviewed between periods said the ice was slow. Outdoor nhl hockey is idiotic.

MugzyBrown: . Outdoor nhl hockey is idiotic.


One thing I think you can at least agree on, these games, like them or not, bring a bigger spotlight onto hockey and the teams playing than any other game throughout the regular season.

This exposure brings in new fans with every one of these played.
