Due to ongoing labor disputes, the National Hockey League has canceled its 2013 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium. The signature event, which was supposed to be held on Jan. 1 between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs, is the latest casualty of the labor dispute that has put the season on hold. Already, 326 games have been canceled through Nov. 30. In its most recent proposal, the NHL offered the players' union a 50-50 split of hockey-related revenues, which exceeded $3 billion last season, but that offer was rejected. The players responded with three offers that were also rejected in turn.
