    LOL, could you clue me in on what this means?

    Any reason for the Canes doing this on the west-coast roadtrip? Are they phasing out the whites? I actually think the white sweater is one of the best in the league!

    Thank you for your insights. Sometimes, as an outsider, it can seem that when teams aren't sold on an untraditional color (be it teal, purple, brown, etc.), they tend to mute it or don't use it as prominently. I know that's where some of the frustration as a fan is for me. For example, it's not that the new Sharks third is terrible, it's that it looks like a black onesie, and ON TELEVISION, you can't pick up a lot of the detail unless you have a close-up. If i were consulting teams, I would tell them to go big with colors and striping. The cameras are pretty far away and the lighting in some arenas (a few of the west-coast barns and St. Louis instantly jump to mind) really muddies things. So, when it comes to the B's sweater, while i think it looks great, if you poll 10 people on what color that is, I think 8 are telling you black. So, it's like...why go halfway? I always -- again as an outsider -- feel that teams associate human qualities to certain colors. Like, we can't have a pink Hitmen jersey because we'll be thought as _____, so we'll do pink accents on a black jersey. Yay, we're tough! I guess I hope team execs aren't saying -- if we go light brown and yellow, we'll look like poo and pee. Because i'm sure that's what some dummy will say on Twitter. Just wish teams had the courage of their convictions and really thought how the end product would look like on television, since this is mostly how we're consuming the new designs.

    Has to be the darkest shade humanly possible. The "B" logo on the old yellow WC jersey looks lighter to me. Regardless, looks great!

    Sorry. Is that black or really dark brown?

    Just surprised no one had commented. So we're waiting on TB, Toronto and LA now...

    Do we all hate the Penguins' new thirds to opine on them?

    Remember we had the guy a few pages back talking about how the B's could have a new alternate sweater? Wondering if the B's could unveil a special throwback jersey for the two tilts against the "Whalers"? That would be interesting. Dress how they would in 1991 or something. Is that a possibility?

    Agreed. Probably because in the home uniform, the blue and orange touch, which makes the blue look drab and dark. They tried to employ the same striping pattern on the home unis, but it just doesn't work with an orange base. All they really have to do is thicken the white stripes and the interior navy and go white/navy/white on the stripes.

    Where did you hear this?

    What a missed opportunity for the Kings to reincorporate purple into their color scheme and start "owning" that color. Pretty soon, we're going to be fairly removed from their "championship years," and a new crop of talent will emerge. I see no reason to not bring purple back in, especially at a time when one of your newest rivals, the Knights, have a grey-dominant uni.

    I can see that. Guess Lou got to the Island just too late to stop them from wearing the new thirds. Maybe that's what's delaying the process if he's lobbying against them or something. Just thinking "outloud."
