Hopefully the NHL will keep this matchup for whenever the heck they have a new season.
Looks like I'm going to need to get a hold of the box office come Thursday for a refund, was really looking forward to going

NHL had taken big steps to gain fans. With this canceled all the casual fans will turn hockey off for good.

Cancelling it only makes sense at this point. For months now, there has been chatter that "The league does not want to lose the winter classic". If the NHL thinks there's even a small chance that that players think that they (the owners) will cave in, rather than lose this game, killing it tomorrow will make it pretty obvious that the league doesn't think that one game is so important that they'd comprimise on what they want from the players.
Cancelling the game tomorrow doesn't mean that they can't bring it back in two weeks, should they finally reach an agreement.
And even if the game was lost.... be that due to missing an entire season, or that they have a short season that starts in the new year (like '94) they can always schedule this game from Jan 1 2014.

The sad thing about season's tickets, per game tickets, special event tickets, and the Winter Classic, is that it's up to the customer to chase down their own refund. So much refund money goes unclaimed in every Sport when games/seasons/special events are cancelled.
