|MLSE Pitches BMO Field As Site For
Future NHL Outdoor Game
ALL ABOUT LOCATION: The GLOBE & MAIL's Jeff Blair wrote, "By what stretch does BMO Field deserve to be site of the annual outdoor game?" Putting the game in as "non-descript a facility as BMO Field would cheapen the event." The "success of the game owes in part to the locale -- the bitter cold of Edmonton or Buffalo, the niftiness and quaintness and novelty of Wrigley Field." Playing the game at BMO Field "would serve no purpose other than being a sop for MLSE" (GLOBESPORTS.com, 11/10).
