The NFL plays games every Thanksgiving Day. The NBA tips off every Christmas. The NHL is taking over New Year's Day.
The NHL transformed historic Wrigley Field in Chicago into a hockey rink in 2009, the Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers met at Fenway Park in Boston in 2010 and the Sidney Crosby/Alexander Ovechkin rivalry highlighted the 2011 Classic at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
The Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers are scheduled to play at Citizens Bank Park in The City of Brotherly Love on Jan. 2.
As the NHL looks for new places to hold its yearly event, many locations come to mind.
Some locations seem likely, almost inevitable, while some seem almost improbable.
