I can't imagine the ice for the Winter Classic is going to be very good for fast skating. Therefore both teams might feature pugilists like Shelley, Walker, Rinaldo and Sestito for the Flyers with Deveaux, Prust, Newbury and Bickel for the Rangers. And won't Flyers fans be hoping for a likely Avery-Simmonds bout?
As much as I hate to say it because i'm a Rangers fan, Boyle shouldn't be dropping the gloves. He could be the softest big guy in the league, if you watch any of his fights he rarely throws punches, he tries to tackle the guy to the ice most of the time. I always roll my eyes when he drops 'em. Sestito and a 2.
