It appears Wrigley Field is the next site for the NHL Winter Classic, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The history of Wrigley certainly is appealing, but why didn't they pick Soldier Field? The league could have sold more than 71,217 tickets for Ralph Wilson Stadium, and apparently it must not think Chicago will be able to draw that as Wrigley seats only 41,000. The Bears' Soldier Field seats 61,500.
Another benefit for Soldier Field would be the sightlines. The top levels of The Ralph provided the best view. Wrigley, obviously, will have friendlier confines, but I don't know if that will work for hockey.
