    It's really noticeable when a team has more than one stripe, like those Carolina jerseys. Pleasantly surprised to check some highlights online and see the color vs color matchup. I'd love if hockey went to a soccer-esque primary and change system instead of regular home/away.

    MSRP was right under $300. We rarely sold any, most coming on a special order by customer request, and priced them at $275 I believe. This was for what is known as the Indo-Edge. On the rare occasion we got some team issues from the Lightning, they were priced at $299 and we couldn't keep them in stock when we had them. Customization ranged anywhere from $30-$100 depending on the material and authenticity requested by the customer.

    Pretty sure it's a new color. Bauer has had a line where you can make a custom helmet for a while and grey hasn't ever been an option.

    The new Arenas throwbacks look nice. Also, in before "who are the AreTnas?"
  5. 2017 NHL Offseason

    Looks good! I always laugh at how the Senators logo comes out in these types of things, like the guy is peering out of a mail slot or something. Nicely done with the Kings, a lot of tv graphics forego the crown and focus on the LA part when cropping the logo.
  6. Hurricane Watch 2017

    Everything all good where I'm at, right on the line between Tampa and Brandon. Strong wind and what I'd call heavy thunderstorm rain but outside of that nothing. Lost power for about 30 minutes and that was the only out of the ordinary occurance. East of here got it much worse with people having power outages and school already canceled through 9/18 for the next county. Quasi-related, Facebook is strange. Some people just open up about every detail of their lives in uncomfortable ways. Logged in today to see what was up and it was dominated by the same three folks posting what seemed to be updates every 5 minutes all throughout yesterday. Also, I'll never understand the "thank the almighty god for sparing us from the storm (that the almighty god also sent if any logic is applicable here at all)" type posts. So what if my roof blew off, guess god just doesn't like me? Just strange.

    Weird driving home from work today, we closed early and everyone else did too, nobody on the roads. It's actually a beautiful day right now, but got all of my stuff off the balcony already and made sure the car was parked away from any big trees and their branches. Non-perishables stocked up, now we will see what comes. Good luck to everyone.

    I've been led to believe every home game for the Yankees is a special jersey. 🙄

    Lightning used the adidas practice jerseys for the first time this week. There was a big purge that I've never seen the likes of in the NHL before, all reebok branded items were removed from the locker room, everything from shoes to warm ups to hats. Traditionally the team has provided UA shoes and apparel to employees and none of that is allowed to be worn while on the job any longer.

    Goalie jerseys used to be notoriously unregulated. While that picture doesn't show it as well as some others, I'd guess that thing is crazy loose and way too big, resulting in the odd placement of the patch and stuff you noticed and (most important) a flying squirrel effect when the arms are spread.
  11. 2017 has not been my year.

    Christ I wish I had these problems.
  12. Isn't Cable a bit bigger than that? I could be off, as my only recollection is the mid-90s version and these things do change, but this doesn't seem to ring true with me. I also don't recall the teddy bear.

    I feel I must say at least something in defense of my favorite team, and that is the fact that since the Lightning's rebrand it is the Leafs who have changed jerseys to make any similarities even more pronounced. 😇 I do long for some silver and black accents. Lightning fans forever wanted a predominantly blue jersey, but not at the expense of the silver and black.
  14. NHL 2017-18

    So nothing. They're very clearly not the same team. But I agree they should honor the history of the former team of the same name.

    I'm of the opinion that nothing Ottawa currently has in their stable of logos is befitting a professional team. That O is not a strong enough mark or identity. The only way I could see it working is if the old team had existed continuously and never changed from it. Perhaps it stretches even beyond being rational but I hate it and I'm not even sure why.
