  1. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were 12

    Yeah, might as well get this out of the way.
  2. Name That Font!

    The font used for "Ken Dryden" and "The Game". I see it everywhere, but no font identifying websites can seen to label it. Anybody know what font this is?
  3. NHL 2017-18

    Someone on the Reddit.com/r/hockeyjerseys page visited the official customizer of the Red Wings today and apparently caught a glimpse of a jersey being customized. Does not look like there is a namebar there, which is good because the Red Wings never use them,

    It's actually the font they've been wearing on their fauxback thirds they had up until now. All signs seem to point that they will be going with the O full time next year, so it's likely the font will stay.
  5. NHL 2017-18

    All teams, even Vegas, will be wearing them until December 31st. They only started wearing them on January 1st. The NHL is marking the 2017 calendar year as their centennial, not specifically either the 2016-17 season of 2017-18 season.

    I don't know if it's an NHL rule, but Team USA does it at almost every international tournament. Likewise, Canada always wears their black helmet with everything.

    Small observation on the Adidas practice jerseys... Anyone else notice that the font used for the team name in the circle around the logo is that respective team's player name font?
  8. NHL 2017-18

    I wonder if that Authentication Dot is merely stitched on and removable. I really hope so. For the few replica Reebok jerseys I have, the first thing I'd do when I brought them home was remove that gray jock tag.

    Not quite relevant, but I just found an eBay auction for a supposed prototype Maple Leafs RBK Edge jersey. Wasn't sure where else to share it. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/TORONTO-MAPLE-LEAFS-PROTOTYPE-AUTHENTIC-HOME-REEBOK-JERSEY-SIZE-56-DAMAGED-/292043551594?hash=item43ff26f36a:g:dJgAAOSwax5YuKfT

    Watch the Leafs go and put blue shoulders on the road jersey like their '50s jerseys did (or the throwback they wore in the early 2000s.)

    So regarding "rounded shoulders"... It would appear that they are acheiving the rounded shoulder effect the same way Nike does it with their IIHF jerseys, All of them are actually straight, but then they add an additional semi-circular piece to the end of the shoulder panel. Except here it's not large enough to fit anything on, which is why all shoulder logos are know resting right below the collars.
  13. NHL 2017-18

    Quick observations: Somehow the X-lace on the Panthers jersey doesn't look so horrible compared to most other teams collars and laces. IMO, I think the Islanders actually have the worst collar of them all. The Devils jerseys, on an aesthetic level, aren't bad. On a historic level, they're awful. The gold material on the Vegas jerseys looks almost like the same gold material the Senators used to have on their black third jerseys they had from 2000 til 2006.

    Those fake lace jerseys look weirder.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    If Fanatics were smart, they would actually sell toilet seats painted like NHL jerseys collars!
  16. NHL 2017-18

    So... do you think the Golden Knights players will wear gold helmets at home?
  17. NHL 2017-18

    Another draft hat finally leaks... Except it's one nobody expected any change from.
  18. NHL 2017-18

    Makes me wonder... what jerseys will they give the Entry Draft picks... the official on-ice authentic or the fan-authentic?
  19. NHL 2017-18

    Quick and dirty example of what I was talking about that also matches the supposed draft hat.
  20. NHL 2017-18

    It is possible that Vegas' jerseys may just have very large black shoulders that the nameplate is put on similar to what the Sabres had in the red/black/gray days of the late 1990's/early 2000s. Or it could be a style similar to what Team USA wore in the early 2000s where the sleeve and shoulders were all one piece that the nameplate was put on while the numbers and logo were put on the actual jersey color.
  21. NHL 2017-18

    I don't think so. The picture is just very dark around the edges.
  22. NHL 2017-18

  23. The Boston Bruins have, IMO, one of the coolest Retired Number banner motifs in all of sports. I thought it might be fun to try a version of a Stanley Cup Banner akin to their roundels. What do you think?
  24. If had actually been Anaheim vs Ottawa: 10th Anniversary Director's Cut, I would have actually made the trip to Ottawa for Game 3 on my birthday! As it is, we had already planned to drive to Saint John, NB for that day for the QMJHL Draft, but the opportunity would be too great to pass up.(And the tickets would probably be easier to come by than you'd think,) That said, I'm rooting for the Predators.
  25. NHL 2017-18

    If anyone ever looked at almost every new jersey released in the past two or three years (The Ducks and Avs thirds, the Hurricanes, Panthers and Maple Leafs sets, the 2016 and 2017 Winter/Centennial Classic and Stadium Series jerseys, and compare them to the actual Adidas template from the World Cup of Hockey jerseys, the cuts and seams appear to be very similar (Square shoulders that are flush with the entire sleeve, underarm gussets that don't stretch down to the bottom of the jersey.) The Hurricanes, Panthers and Leafs I don't expect there to be any changes at all (except for the Adidas logo in place of the Reebok logo under the rear collar obviously and maybe even a different cut of collar altogether). The Rangers, Devils, Bruins and Blues could easily adapt their shoulders to the square flush style with little alterations. And obviously it wouldn't be difficult for Adidas to produce jerseys that have the extended should panels (like is prominent on the Canadiens Red Wings and Sabres white jerseys and all Oilers jerseys. We may be disappointed come Draft Day to see there aren't that many changes at all.
