  1. I'm late to the party, but I like the new logo. It's got more character than the one it's replacing and I feel it gives the Leafs an old timey type look without pushing that too far and being out of place when compared with the rest of the league. 
  2. Rob Manfred: BLASPHEMER!

    What's never sat right with me in a DH league is that a pitcher can bean a guy with near absolute personal impunity. If you're never in the batters' box, you have no place throwing at a guy. I call it the Clemens factor. 
  3. Metallic Puma NFL Jacket from 1999

    I can recall a kid at school wearing the light blue one. 
  4. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    Just had to submit orders for September 2016 arrival of NHL clothing...no new surprises were apparent, the only three TBD logo teams were Florida, Pittsburgh, and Toronto. 
  5. CCSLC Loveline

    I don't know if this gives me hope for my current situation, or depresses me. Like most things recently, it's a little of both. Feelings are complicated.
  6. Columbus Blue Jackets: Branding and Identity

    I like the idea of the state of Ohio captaincy patch, as it's a nice way to quasi-reference the other NHL team the state has had, the Barons. And I may be in the minority, but I'll say I enjoy my Blue Jackets' concepts with just a hint of electric green.
  7. Best Number in Each City

    Tough question for Tampa. I'll admit to knowing diddly about the Bucs, and not being familiar enough with the Rays to know all the numbers. Any great 4s or 26s on those teams? I'd have to rank those two numbers above any other when it comes to the Lightning.
  8. I was making add-ons for whatever NHL PC game I had at the time. The hunt for logos that I could lift colors off of led me to the SLE, which in turn led me here. I don't post often any longer (I feel like I outgrew spending a lot of my time on the Internet a little while back) but still visit the boards for at least a few minutes almost every evening. This might be the oldest still-functioning message board that I've been a part of. Edit: wow, April 2004! If only current day twi could go talk to that version of myself! First thing I would say to that high school junior (!) would be pick a better user name than just your initials! That date in April may actually mark me getting "my" first computer, when the family one got upgraded and I got the replaced one.
  9. In keeping with the current trend, I too would like to request out of Tampa, as I feel I have not been utilized properly by either the young ladies or high paying jobs located here. I refuse assignment to the A and regret having to make my request public. Seriously though, I can see both sides of the Drouin situation. I'm surprised the request occurred in November when he was injured.

    I normally strongly dislike when a team borrows elements from a previous, unrelated team, just because they play in the same city/state/province/ but I like the way that green and gold Minnesota jersey looks. If the North Stars contingent of the alumni team really are wearing their logo and it's not all Wild logos, well that's just doubly cool.
  11. Things not going so great in Lightning Land. So. Many. Injuries. The last two games Cooper has gone with an 11F and 7D lineup and subsequently lost a forward to injury in the first period. Tough to play the last two games with 10 forwards. Bishop has been a saving grace this season, sporting a sub 2 GAA. Oh yeah and the Stamkos thing. No way is he worth what he wants at the rate he's played the last two seasons. I hate to say it (and couldn't have imagined doing so 12 months ago) but I think the best course for the team is separating if something "reasonable" can't be agreed on.

    And we probably get four of them!
  13. 2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    That hasn't been used in years though.
  14. 2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    So any idea if they will keep blue pants/helmets/gloves with this jersey or will they be black too? Could be one single color looking get up.

    "God I hate the Panthers. Stupid non-traditional market, can't do anything right. Move them to Nunavut!" "God I hate the Panthers, what a stupid old redline non-design (read:traditonal). Can't they do anything right?" Classic CCSLC.
