    Because you're linking to the album, not the image. I've had the same problem before. You can right click on the image on the imgur album page and click on 'copy image location' to get the direct link to the image and then post that instead.

    Stories Behind The Numbers

    Gordie Howe wore #17 as a rookie. In those days teams traveled by train, and the sleeper berths on the Red Wings' train were assigned by uniform number. Lower numbers got the lower berths. When the number 9 became available Howe took it to get the better spot on the train and kept it for the rest of his career.

    Seemed Like A Good Idea On Paper

    Maybe an unpopular opinion, but Cooperalls. I was a kid playing pee-wee hockey when the Cooperall trend hit and man, I thought they were cool. Seemed like all the best kids in my league wore them, and then they even started showing up in the NHL. But, unfortunately, like the Titanic, they looked great until they hit the ice.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Ray Bourque in a Colorado uniform is still wrong, Cup or not.

    I got a nosebleed trying to read that.

    You could do the Captains patch instead of one of the regular shoulder patches or between the yoke and the TV number on the arm like Florida does with their patches. But yeah, right chest makes more sense.

    It would have to be either right side Red Wings style or on the shoulder like the Sabres' Turdburger.

    Even as a kid (back when it was still in use originally as the Canucks' logo) I could recognize that it was supposed to represent a hockey rink. It wasn't until I was told that it was supposed to be a 'C' that I was able to recognize that. That's a little too much of a stretch for most people to pick up on their own.
  9. Disagree. I much preferred those to the Reebok piping disaster that is their current set.
  10. They aren't. The part used in the logo is a part of a chicken wing called a drumette, not a leg. Chicken leg drumsticks are similar in shape but usually a bit bigger.
  11. Manchester United won the Premier League in 2013 while wearing the tablecloths from the Trafford Pizza Hut.

    Uniform/jersey misunderstandings

    I have a cap with the seal from the City of Buffalo flag on it. Just this morning (in Buffalo, mind you) someone came up and asked me why I was wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs hat. Sure, the colors are the same, but I don't really get how you could make that mistake.

    Hopefully it will take them a while to get there, but that's exactly where this is heading.

    If that's its father than this has got to be its grandfather: This logo was from a Buffalo PR campaign from the 80s.
