  1. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    You can see the new Leafs uniforms at their rookie tournament. I have to say I'm still trying to get used to it. Two things that I need time to get used to are the one waist stripe and the new socks. Otherwise, I think they're OK.
  2. 2016 World Cup of Hockey

    Woof. It looks like something Two-Face would wear playing hockey.

    I gotta say I don't really miss the baggy look of old hockey sweaters that much. Billington in the game looked like he was wearing a huge table cloth.

    Is it just me or did they finally fix the kerning on the text?

    I think there are more people with Ukrainian ancestry here than Polish. As for a blue version of the Marlies throwback, I don't think it looks as nice as the white uniform, based on the Ballard-era Leafs. Just my opinion though.
  6. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    I actually know exactly what the deal is with that tilted Penguins logo. It was explained to me at one point and then I saw a purchased jersey from that era that fully corroborated the story. Way back, before jerseys were common products, department stores like Sears or Hornes were given contracts to make jerseys, rather than just sell them. They'd be given patterns and the jerseys would be made in that stores' distribution system, sometimes the crests would be made elsewhere and added (which is why you can still find the old 8" Penguins crest loose if you look around). In those early days in areas where hockey wasn't well known, it was a very common mistake to put the penguin sideways, as though the penguin were running because it never occurred to them what skating looks like. If you see a Pittsburgh jersey from the late 60s, it's not uncommon to find a crooked logo on it. United clearly had little experience watching hockey and thought the same thing. I'll have to try find a photo, it was so cool seeing that story come to life That's pretty neat. I know this is a one-year logo, but now I'll never be able to unsee the bottom tip of the triangle not touching the circle.

    Since TNSE was considering Bears/Polar Bears as a team name before they picked the Jets, we do wonder if this is what they're supposed to look. I was at the other Marlies-Moose game and I was pleasantly surprised to see the Marlies with their alt and the Moose with their road uniforms. Loved the Marlies alt, but that style doesn't work for the Leafs.

    Habs and bruins alumni game. Habs are wearing their usual road whites and the bruins their Orr era stuff, but in the 6100 cut. What the B's wear now is good but I still prefer their Orr era stuff.

    I'd tell you where I got my name from, but it's a really lame story. For now I'll enjoy the fact that I'm here long enough to gain an iota of recognition in the boards for doing absolutely nothing!

    I found this bit interesting too. Are they dropping the Ballard Leaf for the 1967 or 35-point leaf? I really don't like the 80s look, and the WC is better suited as an alt. Either way I'll be broke buying their new stuff.

    The font looks a bit modern on the numbers on the Habs jerseys. The numbers also have an inner sewn pattern like the Leafs' and Bruins' WCs uniforms.

    Kill the yoke and that tacky self-congratultory shoulder patch. Love the Sharks' uniforms, but the logo still looks very dated to me. If there was a happy medium between Sharkachu and the old one I'd be happy.

    Bring back the Yeti foot logo and it's even better. The A logo is an improvement. Even with the A logo back in front, I still think it's too drab. Make the burgundy brighter or something!
