    Haha stay golden, Morgo I'd look for a picture of the Flames last Cup parade/rally, but the internet didn't exist then. And I'd look for the Canucks last Cup parade/rally, but it doesn't exist, and if it did, it'd just be engulfed in, well, flames.

    Here are the highlights. The ones I can find anyway. Keep in mind a lot of the image links have expired. You really had to be there to get the full experience How should we start this trip down memory lane? I know! With ytmnd offering their take on the then-new Sabres logo... http://buffaslug.ytmnd.com/ First, the rumours. The Sabres returning to blue and gold??? Surely that means a return to their inaugural look the fans have been clamouring for, right? Or maybe the goathead recoloured? We were all so naive... The 2006-2007 NHL Changes thread. Simpler times. Ice_Cap's first season away at uni... ...then a leak! Too bad it's fake...but the real thing shows up soon enough. We've all seen it. Now we cope as best we can. The logo was revealed first, now the unis? Turns out no. The Sabres, seeing the negative press the slug was getting, rushed an announcement about using the retro blues as an alternate. Of course they paired them with front numbers and navy helmets, socks, and pants because of course they did. The first look at how it'll be used practically, as the Sabres use the wordmarked version at centre ice at what was then called HSBC Arena... Finally, with the season nearly upon us, the primary sweaters are unveiled. The season is now underway, and we desparately look for a glimmer of hope... We're reaching the end of the first few months of the season. What are people's thoughts? The Buffasllug tops the NHL's sales charts. Scientists and theologians agree that this is proof that G-d, if He does exist, is vengeful. Ah, finally the end point. It's been a year. The fan petitions begin... These weren't all of them. The slug generated a lot of heated discussion, and a lot of smaller threads. I tried to hit the highlights, but there were some threads that were more or less useless due to dead image links or just redundant given the longer threads going on concurrently.

    I agree. I actually think that uniforms should always be free from personal attachment, so to speak. I'm fine with season-long patches, but I'm not really a fan of a permanent part of the uniform recognizing a former owner. I, too, think there are better ways to honor and remember past owners, such as statues or naming the stadiums for them. Maybe it's an unpopular opinion, but it's just what I've always felt.

    Ted Turner considered changing the Braves' name to the Eagles when he bought them, to compete the avian theme.

    Un believable. 1 shot in the 3rd period. You see what happens when you turtle? You lose. EDIT: Upon actually looking at the box score, the Flames did get more than one shot in the 3rd; 8 in fact, to the Ducks' 12. I don't remember which CBC broadcaster said they only had 1 shot, but evidently they consult a box score about as often as I do.

    I would like to see a whole set of these in green and yellow with black and white as the accent colors.

    This is easy. Patriots' logo is Elvis, who was from Memphis, which is in Tennessee (like Nashville), and was known as a Giant in rhythm and Blues, which is influenced by Jazz, which is played at clubs in Philadelphia where an Athletic Phillie, wearing a Blue Jacket, may have needed to be Brave and Dodge a trolley to cross the street to get to so he could order a Brew to enjoy with some jazz-loving Senators who Flew up on a Jet from the Capital for the convention. How Patriotic. New England Patriots Memphis Grizzlies Nashville Pred Tennessee Titans New York / San Fransisco Giants St. Louis Blues Utah Jazzzzzz Oakland (Philadelphia) Athletics Philadelphia Phillies Columbus Blue Jackets Atlanta Braves LA Dodgers (stretch) Milwaukee Brewers Philadelphia Flyers New York / Winnipeg Jets Washington Capitals Ottawa Senators.

    EDIT: I decided to include more teams in this concept, although I won't commit to a specific number of them. Also, to cut down the amount of scrolling necessary, original concepts will be replaced by edited versions. Team's completed: AL WEST Anaheim Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Portland Lumberjacks (Expansion) Salt Lake Swarm (Expansion) AL CENTRAL Detroit Tigers Indians Cleveland Tribe Minnesota Twins Chicago White Sox Columbus Flight (Expansion) (NEW) AL SOUTH Houston Astros Texas Rangers Tampa Bay Rays Kansas City Royals New Orleans Krewe (Expansion) AL EAST Toronto Blue Jays Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox New York Yankees New Jersey Trout (Expansion) NL WEST Arizona Diamondbacks Los Angeles Dodgers San Francisco Giants San Diego Padres Colorado Rockies NL CENTRAL Milwaukee Brewers St. Louis Cardinals Chicago Cubs Cincinnati Reds Omaha Steers (Expansion) (New) NL SOUTH Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins Kentucky Gallops (Expansion) San Antonio Hammers (Expansion) Music City Strings (Expansion) NL EAST New York Mets Washington Nationals Philadelphia Phillies Pittsburgh Pirates Montreal Expos (Expansion) AAA Teams posted here AA Teams posted here A Teams posted here For my first post, I figured I'd post a concept for my favorite team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Already to unpopular opinion-time, I actually like the hyphenated "D-Backs" on the jerseys. I modified it slightly, however, because if you're going to go with a snake fang of the "K", you'd better go with one off the "B" as well. Otherwise, you'll end up with some hillbilly snake, which is significantly less intimidating. I also like the shoulder pattern the team currently employs, but thought it would be better utilized on the end of the sleeves. I reversed the colors of the A-snake logo and put it on a red cap, which keeps the snake-skin pattern up top. The road uniform stays mostly the same, but with the shoulder pattern again moved to the sleeves, no front number, and new socks. The red jersey pairs with the red hat and is the home alternate. The black jersey no longer has the A-snake and now uses the road script and is the road alternate. The teal is added to the home and road uniforms, keeping Teal Tuesday going both at home and on the road. Throwback Thursday hangs around as well, with the only change from the current throwbacks being stripes on the socks now. Thanks for checking out my first concept, C&C welcome.

    I know we're still in speculation mode but I can't get memories of Arsenal's 2007-ish third kit out of my head. That said I loved the hell out of that kit, and it'd be absolutely perfect for the USA. Might be the first time I buy a USA kit since the 2011 third (not coincidentally also dark shades of red and blue) (also also I did not remember that variation on the GK kit, wow)

    This is fantastic. And, Pilots are Flyers, so we'd have an entry for ColeJ's other thread. v

    Decided to update my mockup to be a bit more realistic. It now has a solid back and a solid box around the front numbers like what was used on the Waldo kits. I really hope we end up getting something like this, it'd be a really nice and unique look, even if just for the Gold Cup.

    Only edit on Boston is match the script and numbers on the road jersey. I'm of two minds about red or blue but either way it just needs to be consistent.

    I believe "the hate" comes the numerous misapplications of so-called "professional" enterprises using a very "non-professional" appearing font.
