Jeff Wilpon wants the Winter Classic at Citi Field

From the I mentioned the other day I think it would be awesome, but there's no chance of Islanders-Rangers in my opinion.  I'm surprised the 2011 game isn't already scheduled.

I think Citi Field is a much better place to have it than Yankee Stadium, and I'm sure they want to have it in NY. (Although they really should have it in Canada one of these years..)

Islanders will have the young star in John Tavares to show off too.
