    So Tampa Bay ditched the "Tampa Bay" wordmark on the whites huh? And that belly stripe on Minnesota's green jersey sucks.

    You know the GOLDEN seals had white skates. The New York GOLDEN Blades had white skates (WHA) so why not the GOLDEN knights?

    Was it so hard for Minnesota to make a green version of that?

    All in all while I do think the Adidas jerseys are better than the Reebok ones (especially in terms of getting rid of that ugly apron stripe), they really have left me underwhelmed. Especially the collars. I prefer the V necks. In regards to the individual teams. I'm disappointed Boston ditched their iconic yellow socks. I'm disappointed that New Jersey ditched the hem stripes. Their jerseys look pretty plain now. While Calgary does look alot sharper, ultimately its got too much black on it. Colorado does look nicer but than again the only way to go is up. I'm glad that Edmonton switched to orange (always loved the GULF gas company colors) but frankly its alittle to light. I was hoping for a darker shade. I'm glad Minnesota went to a green jersey with the bear head logo on it, but they had to ruin it with that ugly belly stripe and those dopey M's on the shoulders. I'm also upset their home and away jerseys don't match. I like continuity and consistency when it comes to a teams identity which is why I hate mismatching jerseys. Was it really that hard for them to make a green version of their white jersey? Don't like Washington's jersey. Nashville looks so plain now Don't like LA's white jersey While I'm ecstatic about the Sharks putting that cool new shark logo on the jersey shoulders, I don't understand why they didn't put it on the whites. Again I don't like mismatched jerseys. Teams with different shoulder patches on their home and aways (San Jose, Minnesota and Arizona) bugs me. Vegas does look pretty cool. I don't know about the red (frankly I think it sticks out like a sore thumb) and the grey helmets, but ultimately they do look sharp. I'm even digging the white gloves.

    It would also be the best damned logo the Vancouver Canucks ever had.

    More revisionist history

    I just want to chime in here but the Browns didn't go dormant. They relocated to another city and became another team. They just left behind their history to be claimed by an expansion team. (Whatever the Hell that truly means). This wouldn't be the same as lets say the Ottawa Senators (original) going dormant in 1931 and then being revived in 1932 or the Quebec Bulldogs going dormant in 1917 and being revived in 1919. Those teams truly went dormant and were simply reactivated with the players all coming back to the fold. That really wasn't the case for the Browns. What they could have done is that the Browns go dormant and the players all go to Baltimore to play for the expansion Ravens. Then when the Browns are reactivated the players all come back to Cleveland and the Ravens are stocked through an expansion draft. (seems unlikely I know but that would truly separate the two entities rather than this whole leaving name. logo, colors and history behind mumbo jumbo).
