I think I'm ready for the winter classics to be moved to every other year, or every two years. It's lost that special "different" feeling for me.

What if we keep the yearly Winter Classic and add a few ADDITIONAL outdoor games but this time we'll call them something less snappy. Something like Stadium Series? I don't know, I'm just spitballing here.

Habs pick Niemi off waivers.

With Price (lower body) and now Montoya (concussion) out, I guess they figured they needed some semblance of a goalie.

...to watch Charlie Lindgren play, yes.

According to science, Lindgren is the best goalie in NHL history...6-1 with a 1.42 GAA and .956 save pct. - they got Niemi to work the door.

Prediction: Niemi aimlessly floats from team to team where goalie injuries occur until the end of the season and he is never seen again. Bold, I know, but still a prediction.

Edmonton probably wanted to get a bit quicker. Cammalleri was not happy in LA.
