Hypothetical: California Classic OR Petition: Sharks Outdoor Game


Of all things I try to be an advocate, and an optimistic one at that. However, at the risk of sounding pessimistic I'm going to venture that the Sharks are not going to be given a Winter Classic anytime soon. Or ever. On the brighter side I don't think that the NHL's lack of interest or faith in a California outdoor game, or in the Sharks participating in one elsewhere, means that the Sharks won't or can't have an outdoor game anyway.

The hypothetical is this: Can the Sharks partner with another team, perhaps the Ducks or Kings, and put on an outdoor/classic game of their own?

The petition is this: The Sharks or a Socal team should host a California Classic (Yes/No?)

(Poll to follow)

I vote that the Sharks should host a game at AT&T against either the Ducks or Kings. I think the building could definitely be filled and they could broadcast the game on NBC Sports, similar to how the Heritage Classic between Calgary and Montreal was shown on what was then Versus.

The main reason why I bring it up though is because I hope that if enough fans in Northern and Southern California start talking about it or asking for it, it might actually happen. Though I admit that it's possible that this fan post on Fear The Fin won't cause a California Classic to occur it might still be worth trying.

Plus everyone enjoys participating on internet polls, right?
