Read: NHL Stars Wants NY Winter Classic

At his blog for USA Today, Kevin Allen spoke with 17 NHL stars who voted New York as the place they would like to see hold the 2012 Winter Classic.

Allen says that two players specifically said Yankee Stadium.

Yankee Stadium is holding a college football bowl game through 2013.

…It’s tough. In the past it has been said that Citi Field was under consideration, but I just don’t see it unless the Mets ownership take a big role in getting it. Yankee Stadium is such an attraction that if/when New York gets the Winter Classic, it has to be there and it can’t be for a few more years. I would LOVE Central Park as an option but have no idea how it would work or be constructed.
