Give other teams a chance at Winter Classic

Tom Groves, Guildford, U.K.

As a long-time Red Wings fan, I was delighted when Detroit was chosen for the Winter Classic game against long standing rivals Chicago.

What annoys me now, though, is the league's over-selling of the Crosby-Ovechkin/Pens-Caps rivalry.

The Winter Classic has become a very marketable product for the NHL and understandably a great opportunity to showcase its best talents, but give one the other 21 teams yet to participate outdoors a chance to face Washington.
