Let's get your best ideas for matchups and venues for future NHL outdoor games.

> Sharks vs Canucks at the new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara or (ugh) AT&T Park? ("Ugh" because I hate hockey in baseball stadiums!)

> Avalanche vs Stars at Mile High Stadium?

> Bluejackets vs Red Wings at "The Horseshoe"? (A nod to the Ohio vs Michigan rivalry.)

> Jets vs Coyotes at the brand new Investors Group Field in Winnipeg?

> Sabres vs Leafs at RWS! It's time for another outdoor game.

And even though they pulled off an outdoor game in L.A. I can't imagine a Lightning/Panthers outdoor game in Florida. The humidity would make it impossible.

I believe in the power of science and engineering.

Tampa vs Florida in Sun Life Stadium

And no one would attend.

Sabres at Pens in Happy Valley


Great idea, especially considering the Pegula connection. There's already talk of Pens/Flyers @ PSU. Why not a Sabres game and a Penn State game too?

Minnesota vs. Dallas at TCF Bank Stadium (University of Minnesota)


Another solid idea.

How about the NJ Devils vs the St Louis Blues at Arrowhead Stadium.


Wait for it,…


They can wear throwbacks from 1975.


…there it is.

Nice, but they could have that game at Phillips Arena and it wouldn't sell out. From what I've heard, KC is a pretty crazy sports town and I bet they would get a great turnout, especially with it's proximity to St Louis.

Sharks - Stars in St. Paul.

The 2 halves of the old No. Stars reunited in battle at last.

Or put the game in Cleveland for the history as well.


Habs - Loafs in Olympic Stadium with the roof up, just because.


Rags - B's at U Conn. 1/2 the fans in the old Civic Center were rooting for one of them anyhow when they came to visit and play the Whale. It'd be like old times.

Habs - Avs in Keebeck City. The Roy trade never could have happened had they not lost the Nords.

Wow, I forgot the Devils were the KC Scouts once. The were the Colorado Rockies too, so you could send them to Denver. But I like the idea of Arrowhead hosting a game.

You think the NHL would let teams adopt their original identities? Let the Devils become the KC Scouts for a day.

They don't need the "original identity" per se, the jerseys would suffice I think. Vancouver is wearing the "Millionaires" jerseys later this season.

Yes but the Devils turning into a KC team, even for a night, might be too much.
