It is reported that the Maple Leafs would like to hold an outdoor game, however the NHL is not interested in having it a BMO Field, too small and not enough history. The Rogers Centre was not made to have the roof open in the winter and the machinery could freeze leaving the roof stuck.
If the Leafs would like to give back to Hamilton, why not have the game at Ivor Wynne. The stadium has loads of history, it evan has had an outdoor hockey game before.Temporary seating to bring the attendance to 40K, the same as Fenway.
To get the whole region involved they could play Buffalo or the Bulldogs parent club, Montreal.
Just wishfull thinking.
