    We are still six months away from the drop of the puck between the Penguins and Washington Capitals at the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field, but the details surrounding hockey’s grandest stage will begin to take shape as the NHL holds an introductory media conference on Tuesday.

    Headlining the list of speakers expected to address the media at noon on Tuesday are NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, Penguins chairman Mario Lemieux, Penguins president David Morehouse, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and Steelers president Art Rooney II.

    Among the highlights of Tuesday’s media conference, which will be streamed live on PittsburghPenguins.com in addition to being broadcast nationally on NHL Network, are the unveiling of the 2011 Winter Classic logo and a mockup of where the ice rink will sit on the Heinz Field surface.

    NBC and VERSUS play-by-play announcer Doc Emrick will be on hand to serve as the event’s emcee.

    In addition to Lemieux, Morehouse and Crosby, general manager Ray Shero and forwards Maxime Talbot and Pascal Dupuis will also be on hand for the Penguins. Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Allegheny County executive Dan Onorato will be representing the city of Pittsburgh.

    The Washington Capitals will be represented by a group featuring president Dick Patrick, general manager George McPhee and players Mike Knuble and David Steckel.

    As usual, PittsburghPenguins.com will be providing exclusive in-depth coverage of Tuesday’s events with stories, videos, pictures and behind-the-scenes looks. Check back often because fresh and unique content will be added throughout the day.

    Hmm... wonder if they will unveil the uniforms/jerseys or just show up in either street gear/suits or normal uniforms and not release that info until later?

    almost a half an hour in, and it's been a whole lot of nothing. Pretty much a photo op, and praising the city, Pens, and Caps. I sure hope they tell us something we don't already know. I got clothes in the dryer that need folded, so don't make me wait for nothing.

    Press conference was a big waste of time. Didn't really tell us anything.
