    I would rather they switch to the crown, but I could live with them just changing the font on the logo. I like them in black/silver and their grey alternates are actually pretty nice. I know the gold trim was just there for the 50th anniversary, but I would have kept it in. The biggest issue really is the home jersey lacking proper hem stripes like the road.

    I'm going against the grain and say for an all-star jersey, it should be the NHL or conference/division logos. What you have basically is an expensive version of the type of generic jerseys you can buy at Canadian Tire for $50, with each jersey featuring the team logo using the same design. At least those are in the team colours.

    It's so weird how every picture I have seen of the Bruins Winter Classic jersey, it looks black. Then, turn on the game and it's clearly brown.

    Outside of Canada, every new edition the of national team jerseys, the quality just keeps on going down. You have the really crappy, weird template and then you have Russia, which is basically wearing a red practice jersey. Complete garbage.

    I guess you can have a Winter Classic without the winter part. Dallas to host the 2020 Winter Classic. Would make more sense for a Stadium Series game then the Winter Classic, but at least there will be a new team involved. Probably playing the Blackhawks, though. Announcement to come during 2nd period of the Winter Classic, according to John Shannon. Regina to host Heritage Classic. No teams known yet.

    I immediately thought about the Ottawa Rough Riders final logo.

    Something like this?

    Safeco Field is now T-Mobile Park

    They should have kept the name, but unlike the Saddledome, the name wasn't around long enough to build up any equity for it to be kept around. And, really, with the Saddledome roof being shaped like a saddle, could it really be called anything else, no matter the corporate name? Another reason why it might be Arena and not Centre or whatever, could be there are multiple arenas with the same sponsor. Rogers Centre, Rogers Place, Rogers Arena. American Airlines Arena, American Airlines Center. Scotiabank Arena in Toronto isn't Scotiabank Gardens because they didn't want people to think of the old Maple Leaf Gardens. It's also not Centre because there's already an arena called that in Halifax.

    With what happened with Linden in the summer, I have little faith that Aquilini will do the right thing and ditch the Orca, especially since they had the chance way back in 2007 with the Edge switch over. At this point, them ditching the Vancouver script could be all that we get, if that. Probably just fixing the collar. If that's the case, could they also not fix the stupid curved stripes on the back while they are at it?

    Sure, for the older generation, they might still be angry and having a new team wouldn't exactly be the same. I would imagine their kids would have moved on pretty quickly to the new team, especially if they never actually saw/remember seeing the team. The examples given, all the teams have long moved out. Hard to believe there is still any resentment for those teams these days. If it were only a few years, sure, but 20+ years, it's time to move on.

    I think some of the negative reaction might have to do with the belief that hockey doesn't belong in Raleigh, being a non-traditional market. Even with the Stanley Cup win, the team seems to have struggled to attract fans. Doesn't help that they haven't been any good for a while. Except for the Dodgers in Brooklyn, other teams have set up shop in Minny/KC/Mil. There's no reason for people of those cities to be angry.

    America West Arena before it became US Airways Center is another one where it went from non-corporate sounding to very corporate sounding.

    I knew it was a corporate name from the beginning, but you are correct that I didn't know much about the company behind it. It's possible that might be the reason. It's kinda of hard to explain. It's like some names flow better, while others don't, not just with stadium names, but with other stuff, as well.

    Despite being a corporate name, Safeco Field never sounded like a corporate name, unlike T-Mobile Park.

    Rumour was that the goalie jerseys would also feature ads.
