Part 2 of the 2014 Winter Classic Alumni game shows both team’s best lineups (save for the Maple Leafs‘ Sundin, who is recovering for Surgery). The lineups for both teams are stacked with Hall of Fame talent, and many Stanley Cup Winners. Toronto’s lineup, unsurprisingly, contains a lot truculence (that can play).
Enjoy the game.

Darryl Sittler always looks like he's constipated. Smile Darryl, it's an alumni game and you are with Gordie Howe. It's not Game 7 vs. Philadelphia.
Henny may be a pure Leafs homer but I love watching him doing pre-game shows. A real class act. Even with his toque on.
Hey Alec, tell him MLHS says hi and HNY!!
Report: Maple Leafs to host Winter Classic in 2017 http://mapleleafshotstove.com/2014/01/01/report-maple-leafs-to-host-winter-classic-in-2017/ …
I want this win even more after spending New Year's Eve at my brother-in-laws, with two Wings fans, a Bruins fan and a Sabres fan.
From them dissing the Phaneuf signing, asking how I feel about having a Captain that split the dressing room in Calgary and walked into Toronto and took over the music to how stupid the Clarkson signing was.
@ingy56 Ah yes the Southern US teams...remind me where the most knowledgeable fanbases are again? I remember during the Kings run to the finals a few LA reporters either referred to the Sacramento Kings or their logo. I can see why players would want to play there. Live large without any of the attention.
haha, what was with Gordie trying to get on the other side of them?
@TheCanucksnaphook I would be happy with either goalie starting. Both of their SV% are pretty decent with Bernier playing better this season but Reimer has more games played.
Inevitable that he is traded. A happy guy like Reimer showing his feelings like he has I am thinking there may be much more he is not showing. I would love to keep both and thought any possible trade would be after the season. Not so sure now. Carlyle is leaning toward Bernie (if it was a contest) and Reimer's speaking out may speed up the process.
Oh yea, speaking of trades.
The one bozo last night was saying that Burke blew it, because Leafs could have had Letang for Fraser and Frattin, but he turned it down.
I asked him how exactly Burke blew it, when he was fired before the season, but if that rumour is true, which I doubt it is, Nonis definitely dropped the ball on that one!
@TheCanucksnaphook I won't be surprised. I just don't think it's the right move.
@TheCanucksnaphook Wasn't originally a fan of the trade only because I felt it was wasting trading chips on a position that wasn't the true need - it was more of a want than a need. But he has played well....no denying that. Definitely like having 2 good goalies.
@Burtonboy Looks like blue is taking a trip to T.O. in '17 :D
@TheCanucksnaphook When he couldn't break his slump against the Leafs, he knew he was done...
Did you see Dion at the presser? He was quite articulate in his comments and then later answering questions. He's come a long way in the department and seems much more comfortable in that role.
People can say what they want but I really think he relishes being the Leafs captain for the next 7 and half years. Good on him.
@.JVR. I spent NY with some Habs fans. The grins came of their face as they watched the hilites of last nites game. Priceless
@.JVR. You spent New Year's Eve with morons?
@wendelsway1 Happy New Year WW
@Alec Brownscombe Enjoy the game Alec
@Alec Brownscombe How's the head this morning lol
I think I held my own in the debates with the fools.
About Phaneuf, I told them a leader to take over the room was exactly what the Leafs needed and I would take Dion over any defencemen currently playing for their teams.
Sure Chara is better now, but the guy is 36 years old and doesn't have alot of time left.
We were watching 24/7 after the ball dropped and they were making fun of Clarkson getting mad at Bertuzzi over the water bottle incident and said that Clarkson better watch out, cause Bertuzzi would kill him.
I asked if he was gonna be doing that by throwing a sucker punch from behind, while Clarkson is skating up the ice, haha.
@Cameron19 @.JVR. Morons everywhere....sometimes it can't be helped...lol Had my Phaneuf jersey on last night and had to deal with a friend of a friend who was a very drunk Habs fan last night......laughed in my face and kept on yelling Leafs suck as he grabbed my ass......ended with me smacking his fingers with a pool cue and telling him to get the fuck away from me or next swing he'd be losing teeth.......Hubby "helped" him to the door, shortly after....
Saw Gary Bettman, all Toronto Sun employees last night (Simmons, Hornby, Ziesberger) and Millen... Zeisberger had kind words for the site. Chose not to try to talk to the others.
