  1. The Leafs don't wear navy -- they wear a shade of dark royal; even the merchandise, which tends to be darker than the on-ice stuff, is still lighter than "true" navy.
  2. Between the Ballard leaf merchandise that'll be on clearance, the new swag with the 2016 logo on it, and all the throwbacks they'll be wearing next year, I have one shopping spree ahead of me.
  3.   The point was never to re-invent the wheel, because they didn't have to. You had 40 years of pre-drought Maple Leafs history to draw from (1927-67), and the point was to emulate that with a modern twist...sort of like another Toronto team did a few years back.
  4. Excellent news. I haven't been this excited and/or nervous about an unveiling since, well, ever. (Beats the Blue Jays' 2012 rebrand by a hair.)
  5. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    I saw it on SportsNet's website yesterday, too.

    Given what we know, I have a feeling the numbers will be rather illegible from a distance. Also, I think "stylized" seal will end up meaning "simplified".
  7. The shape of that leaf is beautiful, but it can not not not work without "Toronto Maple Leafs" on the inside. Also, probz not the best era to throw back to.
  8. Arena Rafters & Banners

    IIRC, Beeston said at the retirement ceremony that they left the name off so new Jays fans would inquire about the banner to learn more about him. And, in any event, his name on the Level of Excellence has the number 12 on it, so fans in the stands can make the link. And as for the ASG banner, I'm cool with having something to commemorate the event, but yeah, a full-sized banner right beside all your real accomplishments is a bit cheesy.

    Wow, I had totally forgotten that Lemieux and Crosby played together in the latter' first season.
  10. I think the TTC font looks great. When I'm travelling from Yorkdale to Union. For the purposes of a hockey crest? No thanks. It's too thin; all that's needed is a simple block font.
  11. It's the same leaf as the 1990s shoulder patch.

    You're putting emotion over reason. History is not something you can just change at a whim. Simply wanting something to be true doesn't make it true.

    If you can't discern between bright red and kelly green, you have much bigger problems to worry about than an NHL uniform matchup.
  14. Ceci n'est pas une politics thread.

    You know, I've seriously wondered how long it would take for Trump to get impeached. I can't see him serving a full term with so many enemies from both parties (and, let's be real, it won't take long for him to try to do something impeachable anyways).
