The NHL, the Pittsburgh Penguins and representatives from other parties involved in the 2011 Winter Classic -- like, you know, the Washington Capitals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, etc. -- took part in a giant press conference.
Sidney Crosby was boring. Doc Emrick talked a lot about people's hometown's. Gary Bettman pointed out interesting facts that everybody already knew for a long time, like that every visiting team in the Winter Classic has made the Cup Final.
But a few interesting things did actually happen. For one, the logos for each team and the logo for the event were unveiled. The teams are going retro, as expected. From NHL.com:
The uniforms won't be unveiled for some time. Philadelphia and Boston didn't show theirs to the public until training camp in September last year.
