I seriously want them to do this. Get the same players together while they are still in relatively decent shape and play the game for charity or Sandy relief (Buffalo-NY connection). Call it game 8 if you like. Get them to play it outdoors. I really thought the NHL would be cancelled, so this was something I wanted to lobby for, but be an afterthought now, but still think it would be a great idea. How would I go about trying to get this together? Do you think I would get a positive repsonse? Carbo, Hasek, Modano, Balfour, I am sure it would get a good reaction. Hull would probably get booed a lot, but not surprised.
I want this game to be the trailblazer for getting controversial sports games replayed purely for charity/entertainment purposes. Another game I am looking at is the contoversial 1990 fifth down game between Colorado and Missouri. I want them to replay it even though it is 20 years old. The players might not be in shape, but I am sure some would be psyched to play one last game. Would call it the Justice Bowl.
