  1. Random musing: I find it weird that the Preds' jerseys still have the All-Star Game patch on them. Don't most teams usually just ditch that after the All-Star Game?
  2. You know, the Oilers right now remind me a bit of the Quebec Nordiques back in the early 90s. The Nords were terrible for 5-6 years, got a bunch of good draft picks (including 3 straight years with the #1 pick, like Edmonton), and picked a bunch of highly-acclaimed forwards in Sakic, Sundin, Nolan & Lindros. Then they traded everyone but Sakic for other pieces they needed; defence, goaltending, better offensive prospects (Forsberg), and away they went, almost overnight in fact; from 20 wins in 1991-92 to 47 in 1992-93. Admittedly, they got super lucky later when one of the best goalies in the league went on the market, and if they hadn't moved they wouldn't have had any chance at getting him*, but hey, it is what it is. Basically, like a lot of other people have been saying, yeah, we're at the time where the Oilers should probably hang on to McDavid and start looking to trade some of their other forwards for some defence and a goalie who's actually good. All I'm pointing out is that there's actual historical precedence for this. * - then again, if they didn't move the whole Roy thing would've gone differently anyways, 'cause then the schedule would've been different and 11-1 game probably wouldn't have happened.
  3. 2016 NHL Off-Season Thread

    Actually, Great Western was a bank. It's just that the name suited the place so well that nobody noticed.
  4. 2016 WWE Payback

    Eh, those are by no means terrible, but I'll stick with this: It helps that he was starting to get really over around that time... right before they buried him & then he quit.
  5. Really unusual color schemes (that work)

    The WHL's Calgary Hitmen have a black, grey & pink alternate jersey, a throwback that they wore full-time in the mid-90s. If there's one sports team that could pull off using pink, it's one named for Bret Hart: They had a different, non-throwback pink jersey a few years ago too, which I liked a bit better:
  6. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    I think you kinda proved your own point: They actually play in Sunrise, Florida.
  7. New Sacramento Kings Logo Unveiled

    It's funny, I always thought that was a great colour scheme - just not for the Jazz, especially in the way they used it. If the Kings are indeed gonna use it next season, I think they could make it work.
  8. I know I'm late on this, but whileI don't really know much about Pat Foley, I'll still take his opinion over the worst GM in the NHL's history.
  9. What Grinds Your Gears...

    My neighbourhood just recovered from it's 3rd blackout in the last ~7-8 months earlier tonight; as if that wasn't enough, the thing I always worry about actually happened: I had booted up NBA 2K16 on my PS4, and it was in the middle of loading when the power went out, so now all of my non-Franchise mode data's gone.
  10. That video's already been removed. Bummer.
  11. I think people who defend ads on uniforms by pointing to minor leagues, leagues in other countries, or soccer, miss a couple of things. For one, yeah, minor & European leagues put ads on jerseys 'cause by and large, they probablydoactually need that extra money. I really don't think any of the Big 4 out here are in such a spot that they can legitimately say that (without getting laughed at, anyways). And as for pro soccer, there's kind of a trade-off there: while they do put ads on jerseys, theyalso havefew-to-no commercials. Again, do you really think any of the Big 4 are willing to make a sacrifice like that?
  12. NBA's New Jersey Swamp Dragons/Fire Dragons

    My only thought about all that is, did they never considerjust"New Jersey Dragons"? 'Cause combine that with a more toned-down logo & uniformand I think that would've worked a lot better, personally.
  13. The PhoenixArizonaCoyotes moving. I've been wrong about that for 6 years and counting...
  14. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    This last season for the WHL's Calgary Hitmen, they had a pair of brothers, Taylor & Travis Sanheim. Travis wore"SANHEIM" on his back: ...While Taylor had "T. SANHEIM:
