With word from the Associated Press that sources are telling them the NHL has canceled its 2013 Winter Classic, the rest of the season is in limbo. If the story holds true, why not finish canceling the season?  The NHL’s Winter Classic has been received very well. With the game held at several outdoor venues, it’s a spectacle the NHL never had prior to 2009. The Classic has seen a shootout victory courtesy of Sidney Crosby and the Penguins as well as an overtime thriller won by the Boston Bruins at Fenway Park in just four seasons of the event’s existence. But the 2012-2013 season will not have a Winter Classic. No one will see the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings go at it at the University of Michigan’s “Big House” on January 1st. All because the league and the union can not come to an agreement to end the lockout. The report also states the source informed them the Winter Classic will be held next year at the same venue. Well that’s great news. Surely the fans can’t wait. Note to the National Hockey League: Finish canceling the rest of this season. Work on a deal for next year. Clearly there is no sense of urgency from neither side to end the lockout and save the season.

  • Go ahead and cancel the whole season now. What a pethetic joke this league has become with these blundering idiots in charge.
