Gary Bettman Disrespects The Bruins Following Recent Announcement

As anticipation builds for the NHL's 2025 Winter Classic, fans eagerly await news of the participating teams.

While no official announcement has been made, reports suggest that the Chicago Blackhawks will host the event at Wrigley Field, squaring off against the St. Louis Blues.

This matchup marks the Blackhawks' seventh venture into outdoor games and their fifth Winter Classic, with Wrigley Field serving as the backdrop once again, reminiscent of the 2009 clash against the Detroit Red Wings.

However, amidst the excitement, some fans express frustration at missed opportunities for other historic rivalries to take center stage outdoors.

Notably, the decision has drawn criticism from some who feel that the league, led by Commissioner Gary Bettman, has overlooked the Boston Bruins, a team with only four outdoor game appearances, despite their status as a perennial contender and their potential to draw significant viewership with rival matchups against teams like the Canadiens or Leafs.
