will not be participating in this year's Winter Classic. Hradek reports that the league has settled on the Bruins and Flyers at Fenway Park as the first part of a double header, with the second game being between the Leafs and Flames in Calgary. Hradek also reports that the reason the Caps were kept off the bill was to set up a New Years Day 2011 Matchup against the Rangers at the new Yankee Stadium. League sources are expected to meet and give final approval on the lineup tomorrow. Looks like Jose Theodore won't have another chance to start in an outdoor game, unless he goes to the KHL (here's hoping).
