    Both the Bruins and Canadiens are wearing a patch in honour of the 60th anniversary of Willie O'Ree breaking the colour barrier in the NHL in tonight's game. The Bruins were also able to run a video tribute to Claude Julien in his first game back and celebrate Willie O'Ree. How 'bout that.

    I think Adidas got tired of people complaining about the lack of a proper hem stripe on some of the jerseys, so they went overboard with the Caps jersey. Is it just me, or does it seem like this particular template has been reused a few times now for the World Cup and Stadium Series jerseys, adding or subtracting elements like the shoulder yoke as needed.

    According to an article about the new Hurricanes' owner and the changes that he's already making, it appears like they will be ditching their black alternate for something completely new for the next season.
  4. same name, same team, same number

    It's the same franchise, so technically it fits. Peter Stastny and his boy Paul.

    I would go with both, too. Only question is, what colour is it? Orange? Red and bad lighting?

    The reason they are partly in this mess in the first place is because they can't use just the name Knights. It's been discussed before, but the London Knights own the trademark to Knights in Canada, so they couldn't use it unless Foley paid them the rights to do so, which he had said it would be too costly. Sand Knights seems to be the fall back since that is the only other alternative name that Vegas still kept trademarked, while allowing others to expire. I agree Knights would make the most sense. Much better than Sand Knights. But, Foley is going to have to pay up, and that price, whatever it was, probably went up with the success of the team and the current bind that they are in. Unless its in the tens of millions, Foley probably should just bite the bullet and pay London. Then again, most people probably refer to the team as the Knights, any ways. They can save money by just going with Sand Knights officially, while unofficially be the Knights.

    It's the NHL. It's a league that has previously allowed fraudulent people to own teams when they have absolutely no money at all. John Spano bought the Islanders in 1996 and William "Boots" Del Biaggio had a piece of the Predators. There's probably a few others that I don't know about. So, the NHL dropping the ball on this shouldn't be surprising to anybody. They probably figured that nothing would happen, or were crossing their fingers and hope all will go well.

    Nope. Just going off what was on the front page about Army officially opposing the trademark. Honestly have no idea whether Army has a case or not since I don't really feel the logos are similar, though it is pretty clear Foley has based the name and look of the team off of West Point. If Army wins, then I'm thinking it might not be as simple as changing the name to Sand Knights or something like that since they are also saying the logo is similar. If Vegas is forced to not only change their name, but also their logo, you would think that all that Vegas Golden Knights gear would become collector's items and maybe have some sort of value down the road Question to the Americans. Is the Army's parachute team being called the Golden Knights a well known thing?

    It's because the Kitchener Rangers use to be a farm team of the New York Rangers back when the Original 6 sponsored junior teams. That ended in 1967. http://historicalhockey.blogspot.ca/2012/12/the-sponsorship-system-pre-expansion.html

    Everybody quickly buy all of the Golden Knights gear you can since they might become collector's items soon if Army gets their way. If they do, I really hope they don't go with Sand Knights.

    Gone, but not forgotten. This banner hangs at the Bell Centre. Just found out today.

    Ottawa will be wearing their Centennial Classic jerseys another 7 times. I'd expected they would wear at least once or twice more, but surprised they'll be wearing them that much. Much better looking jersey than their current jersey, except for the logo. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/senators-wear-nhl100-classic-sweaters-7-times-season/

    Connor McDavid and the Pacific Division will be wearing the white jersey that has already been posted, but here's a reminder. P.K. Subban is the captain of the Central and their jersey will be black. Alex Ovechkin is the captain for the Metro and it will be a grey jersey. Steven Stamkos is the captain for the Atlantic and it will be blue.

    I might be one of the few people who doesn't really have a problem with the current Sabres uniforms (except for the chest numbers), but if they don't switch to the Winter Classic jersey in the next couple of years, then they are stupid.

    I'm kinda surprised that more teams haven't jumped on the vintage uniform band wagon and actually worn them in the game and not just for the warm ups, especially for these past 2 seasons, even with the no alternate rule for this year. Then, I remembered that some teams are kinda cheap and don't want to fork out for the extras like making sure the helmet and pants match the jersey.
