  1. That's what I kinda figured and the answer I got when I asked some Canadian buds a while back. It also makes sense given the time of year that it occurs to be a big draw. Just seems odd to it listed alongside some of the biggest team accomplishments in the sport. For the jersey collectors, I believe EPS will be getting the lettering kits that have the mesh and holes like the on ice ones.
  2. Since you mentioned it, I thought I'd ask; what's the big deal with the WJC? It's no different than the U-18s or U-16s, just hyped to hell. It always sticks out like a sore thumb to me when people mention Neidermayer or whomever with all their titles and along with the Stanley Cup, Olympic gold, World Championship gold, etc a junior title is listed. Any new members of the quadruple good club now? Cup, Olympics, WC, World Cup?
  3. That trophy is the flavorless icing on the not quite stale cupcake this tournament was. Marchand has become a very good player in the last year. At at least there weren't many big injuries. Just Gaborik and Seguin and it seems like it's just a matter of when with those two.
  4. Viewed alone, I really like these Bengals jerseys.
  5. It's ok. I enjoy international hockey to see the players playing with guys they normally don't, but this World Cup just felt lacking. Lacks the cache of both the Olympics and World Championships. Kinda tired of the media darling NA team too. The talking heads who keep saying they should have made the playoff round over Russia seem to have forgotten that that's what the standings are for. I actually heard one of the Melrose/Levy guys say that "by every objective measure" they should have advanced. Well, quite literally, no. Tldr; Seems like another NHL event and not really an international thing.
  6. Agreed. The first game I saw with them in their blues I was happy as you don't see that jersey as much, but it's a shame the primary wasn't on display as much. Particularly with that distinctive yellow.
  7. Hull, Chelios, and Melrose have all referred to the US's opponent tonight as Checkoslovakians. Get with the times gentlemen.
  8. I think it's a shame that it's gone. (But the jersey swap was a good choice.) The only negative this logo has going for it is that yes, it's yet another circular logo but there are enough elements included to keep it from being part of the "lazy roundel club", where Dallas and my Lightning's secondaries reside.
  9. I don't see a reason to dislike these new Oregon uniforms anymore than the other crazy stuff they've worn. This one actually has a direct link to the team and school that black, volt, chrome, charcoal, carbon, diamond plate, etc. don't.
  10. I don't understand these. Not a bad look on its own, but not a Chicago Wolves look.
  11. I wouldn't want to see the way the Panthers have the shoulder numbers and patches arranged spread to many teams, but it's ok for one team. Fingers crossed it doesn't become the next "contrasting nameplate". Toronto looks good, certainly not drastically different enough to elicit some of the strong negative responses I've seen. Really like the new crest. After all the flak my favorite team caught it is slightly humorous to see them changing their look closer to the current Lightning in regards to the striping. Will miss the triple striped socks.
  12. Flag patch on the shoulder? Ugh. Doubly egregious because they're far and away from being the only team in the league from the area represented by the flag!
  13. It makes the look more unique to the league and isn't tooooo garish (just 3 'o' too) so I'm in favor. This yellow hasn't been a standard production color before last year so I'm impressed how well Josi's and Weber's helmets match despite being from two different companies, a Bauer and a CCM respectively.
  14. That's great! AK's new styles added for this season include the green Ducks jersey from the movie. Any team that comes in my shop looking for a new set in green I've tried to push towards these but no takers as of yet. Given that we've got a twill cutter now, I'd just need an accurate logo and a good look at the font and could probably make some pretty accurate movie jerseys.
  15. Didn't read it yet, but heard the first review for Luke Cage is overwhelmingly positive. I don't know about you guys but I'd have to hear good things about it to give it a watch, same as with Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. Maybe it's super hero fatigue, maybe it's just other stuff I'd rather watch in limited TV time, but LC and IF just don't do it for me. I feel like the Marvel universe has surpassed what looks like generic strong guy ( but black!) and generic karate guy (but whatever his schtick is!). I've found myself much more interested in Kingpin and Purple Man than Daredevil and JJ as characters, maybe these next two buck the trend. Both villains were perfectly cast (although LC was a perfect on screen embodiment too, so maybe I'm just talking circles). Anywho, that's what I think I think. That being said, I hope I'm greviously wrong and they're both the best releases yet.
