A very cold Winter Classic?

The Winter Classic is going to be huge this season, with the Maple Leafs and Red Wings suiting up to play in Michigan's Big House. It might also be a bit chilly, as game-time forecasts predict the temperature in the teens in addition to some light snow. It's unlikely to derail things too much, but if it does snow, it'll be interesting to see how the players deal with this extra element. It'll certainly keep the Zamboni machines working overtime. We also can't help but think of the upcoming Super Bowl in New Jersey, where cold temperatures and an open stadium could provide a strange experience for both teams.

The NHL in 2013-14

The start of the season might be months away, but that didn't stop the NHL from making news Friday, as the league released its schedule, revealed the names of its four divisions (Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central and Pacific) and agreed to halt play and allow its stars to compete in the Sochi Olympics. So yeah, there's a lot of time to think about it -- and a lot to digest as we look toward the 2013-14 season.

How do you feel about the NHL's four new division names (Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central, Pacific)?
