    Why not use the bolts to make the diamond???
  2. What throwbacks do you want to see?

    I'd love to see these for the Wild's upcoming 20th Anniversary... Of course, not the edge version... Those sucked compared to these^^^ The stripes were way too thin, and of course, Reebok made it beige, and not gold. It's a small change, but it has a pretty impact...
  3. NHL 2017-18

    I don't understand why... This is a fantastic uniform. Hands down, one of the best the Hawks have ever worn. If the other black alt had plain black pants, it might work a little better, but it's still kinda bland. Everything really blends in, and it just doesn't seem to fit the Hawks. The Winter Classic sweater has a fauxback look, complete with a vintage white, that is actually historically accurate. (At least according to NHLuniforms). They have a little more originality, and they fit the Hawks historic franchise quite well. (They also look much better with the shoulder patch) The other black jersey honestly looks like a photo shop job...
  4. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    This would kinda tie in with the Space Needle, but what about the Seattle Satellites?
  5. NHL in Houston

    I think there's too much Sunbelt Hockey. Clearly Tampa Bay is a great location for a team, and Nashville is becoming successful, and all of the California teams have had good success, but there are lots of places that haven't had that same amount. Teams like the Panthers, Hurricanes, Coyotes, and the former Atlanta Thrashers and Flames all suck(ed). They're terrible franchises. The NHL, and the game of hockey in general, (whatever ruling body you want,) should help diversify the game more before trying to push south. Maybe make sure that the teams in the traditional markets are doing well, and are the #1, #2 team in that city... And then maybe see if a city like Houston could work. If the game is brought to more attention on a national level, and reaches all sorts of people, not just the rich white people, then maybe the "Grow the Game" initiative might actually work...

    If the pattern for the Sabres was used in a different color scheme, where the silver was an accent color that made it pop, it would look nice. Similar to the Calgary Hitmen, who are now using the Sabres pattern. But the problem with the Sabres, is that it takes away from the navy blue, and leaves WAY to much yellow and nearly white, that the pattern nearly disappears on TV, and probably in the stands. The navy and gold color scheme is a good one, but the execution from the Sabres is awful.
  7. City/State Color Identities

    I think that's a little too much yellow for the Falcons... It makes them look more like the McBirds than the Dirty Birds...
  8. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    I'm not 100% sure that the current Jets radio crew is the same as a couple of years ago, however, the Jets radio play-by-play is garbage. You have to really paint the picture of the play when you're on the radio, and the Jets don't do that. The game I listened to was a 5-1 preseason win for the Wild over the Jets. The only way I knew the Wild scored was when the horn went off in the background. It was mostly "HFiarhfj iarhfi aorgihOH FHIDHFIEHFIHIHAEIFH AEHR *HORN* AND THEY SCORE! Well that makes it 5-1..." there was no breakdown of the play, and I could not see the game in my minds eye. Bob Kurtz and Tom Reid for the Wild are a fantastic duo, and Kurtz really describes the play very nicely. I might be a little biased, but they might just be the best in the biz...
  9. Portland ECHL Team Unveils Name-the-Team Finalists

    I like the subtly of the Lighthouse shadow in the M, and the pine tree in the middle bar of the Trident-E... The logo feels too wide though. It looks like it would fit better on the top of a document, or the side of a gas station, then on a hockey jersey.

    lol didn't see that...
  11. IIHF/Olympic Hockey Redesign (93 teams!)

    Every single one of these are fantastic! They push the boundaries of traditional designs, but they're all so good, that those who do break the unspoken rules look great! The only thing I could see that I would change is on the US sweaters. The logo on the road should still have red and white stripes like the flag, and not red and blue.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    Well I'm glad that the Sabres are wearing royal blue and yellow. (Even though I do like the Navy and yellow color scheme, the grey is too much) Hopefully we'll see this head into a change... Although that's no guarantee with a team like the Sabres

    Nice Job on flipping a logo... This was an ABA team in 1967-68...
  14. 2018 Winter Olympics Hockey Uniforms

    I feel like a couple of Russian players are going to accidentally wear their practice jerseys to the games... And somehow, no one (except us of course) will notice. Why? Why would you make it look like a practice jersey????
  15. 2018 Winter Olympics Hockey Uniforms

    I get that these are all the same templates, but somehow, Canada's white sweater beats out the rest by a long shot. Also why do these look like the sled hockey team designs? There's no waist striping, and barely any sock patterns... These Nike designers only know how to design shoes... Why are they designing Olympic Hockey jerseys?
