With all the success of the NHL's outdoor games this season -- the Winter Classic at the Big House, games at Dodger Stadium and Yankee Stadium -- why shouldn't the Bruins get in on the action?
4 outdoor NHL games likely next season. Tons of interest. SJ, Phx, Col, Bos, Minn, CBJ, etc. Toronto pushing hard for Winter Classic....— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) January 29, 2014
...Montreal and Ottawa also want outdoor games and Wpg is expected to host the 2016 Heritage Classic.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) January 29, 2014
Ballpark number (no pun intended)...6 outdoor games this season should generate aprox $20 million in revenue for NHL and NHLPA.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) January 29, 2014
When it was discussed last season that the NHL might incorporate more outdoor hockey games, the Bruins were mentioned as a team that could be included, and Gillette Stadium was mentioned as the venue.
Would you like to see the B's host a game in Foxboro? If you think it's a good idea, or if you think the multiple outdoor games is a bad move by the league, let us know in the comment box below.
