The Winter Classic will be played in Michigan Stadium on January 1st.

But many fans in the area are probably more excited to head down to Comerica Park on December 31st for the Alumni Showdown. Nicklas Lidstrom, Sergei Fedorov, Brendan Shanahan, Chris Chelios and Chris Osgood highlight the Red Wings roster against Mats Sundin, Lanny McDonald, Tie Domi and Russ Courtnall for the Leafs team. Tickets for the doubleheader are on sale now at http://www.DetroitRedWings.com/2014WinterClassic or by calling 313-471-7575.

I had a chance to talk today to Kris Draper and Wendel Clark about the game. Both players will be in uniform at Comerica that day and both are thrilled at the opportunity.

I asked them which teammate would be in the best shape and which would be the most competitive. And I asked Draper about what he expects from the fans when Fedorov skates onto the ice wearing a Red Wing jersey for the first time in over a decade.
