Gary Bettman has hinted there will likely be two outdoor games a year from now on with one in Canada and one in the states. In the states, the outdoor game has surpassed the stanley cup finals in terms of television ratings and sponsorship and become a golden goose for the league. Canadian teams have been clamouring to host another one but the NHL doesn't really want to give up an american outdoor game because that's where the tv numbers and sponsorship are needed the most so this will be the compromise.

With respect to Toronto, the Leafs are pushing for an outdoor game at BMO Field likely against Montreal.

Dallas vs Washington @Cowboys Stadium - like Cowboys and Redskins, only in Hockey
Colorado vs Calgary @Mile High or Coors Field - US Rockies vs Canadian Rockies. You could also use this for DU vs CC game like they did in Boston with BC and BU
Phoenix vs San Jose @U of Phoenix Stadium - Desert Showdown
Vancouver vs Calgary or Edmonton @BC Place - West Canada Showdown, and that way I could actually have a chance of going to see it!
The game in Minnesota has to be played at TCF Bank. It would be a travesty if it wasnt.

Is San Jose a desert now? That must be why I'm thirsty.

Montreal should host a game on the St. Lawrence River.

Well technically it can, but due to safety reasons, it's not allowed to. Ice can build up and damage the roof.

Several I've seen mentioned:

Yankee Stadium (Rangers vs Islanders or vs Devils perhaps?)
Pittsburgh (Caps vs Pens at either Heinz Field or PNC Park)
Denver (Avalanche vs Redwings at Mile High or Coors field)
Dallas (Under the Megatron)

Any others?
Rose Bowl - Kings Vs Ducks. that would be amazing, and would have to be at night so the temps are in the 40's. The idea has been floated a couple times so lets see where it goes.

If they could pull that off from a temperature standpoint it would be great although too late at night on the east coast and the ratings wouldn't be what the network would like.

The NHL would much prefer to keep the games in baseball stadiums because there isn't a crown like in football stadiums and because baseball is out of season so they can take control of the stadium for a month or just about however long they want. Personally, I want to see it in Minneapolis. That state is as good for an outdoor game as there can be.

Either Dallas (Bringing the North Stars back) or Colorado probably.

I have not heard any suggestions about playing the game in Pittsburgh, and it is unlikely to happen any time in the near future, since Pittsburgh was already in a Winter Classic. The same goes with the Flyers hosting it, and thus Beaver Stadium in State College is out (as much as I'd like that). Joe Paterno won't let the NHL use his field anyway.

I have heard that Denver and New York City almost landed the Winter Classic for this season, so I would suspect that one of those cities could host it. The Capitals at Yankee Stadium against the Rangers is very likely, and the Avalanche against someone at Invesco Field is also very likely. The league has said that they would like a second game to be played in Canada, but while a second game doesn't make sense, a game in Canada like the Canadiens/Oilers game from 2003 (which started it all) is very possible.

Minnesota would be a very good location because of hockey history, outdoor hockey history, and the cold climate. I would think that they host it within the next 5 years.

Denver would probably want to host their own game.

Caps v Flyers at RFK could be awesome.

Soccer fields aren't crowned, I don't think.
