Reacting to Friday's news that the scheduled Winter Classic between Detroit and the Toronto Maple Leafs was being cancelled by the NHL, Red Wings defenseman Ian White was both surprised and embarrassed. "It's starting to feel like it's 2004," White said. "And that's a bad feeling." The NHL season was lost in 2004-2005, of course, because of a work stoppage.
"It's surprising people actually have the courage to cancel something like (the Winter Classic) when so much relies upon it and so many people are looking forward to it," White said. "We've already had some damage that won't be able to be undone to our sport. (The league) just continues to pile on. It actually embarrasses me as a player. You go out in public, people view us differently from this. The NHL just continues along this path."
