Your Friendly Tuesday Links Roundup: The Winter Classic Was Supposed to Be Cancelled Yesterday Edition

Should we care if the NHL loses money by not cancelling the Winter Classic early enough?

I've always thought that the season would effectively be over when/if the cancellation of the Winter Classic was announced. Well, according to some sources, that would've happened Monday had Sandy not occurred - and will definitely happen by the end of the week. Even though a 60-ish game season is still possible, the Classic needs to be cancelled as soon as possible to keep the NHL from incurring a financial penalty. Bummer.
