  1. Dallas has a couple of hands on owners who have had a good amount of success.
  2. I have to disagree with you on this one. That logo is a wordmark with a football & a maple leaf. For a team playing in the Canadian Football League this would be redundant. The current logo is an excellent modernization of the classic Rough Riders' helmet logo, and the buzzsaw is a great nod to the lumberjack branding the team has come to be known for.
  3. I'm hoping that with this reveal the Sens finally come to their senses and ditch the gladiator for the heritage look full time. I am surprised that the wordmark doesn't emphasize "Knights" over "Golden". As for the use of "Vegas" rather than "Las Vegas", I'd prefer the full name, but the logo is nice without an "L" shoehorned in there somewhere. Besides, they aren't the New York City Rangers/Islanders, North Carolina Hurricanes, or Tampa Lightning.
  4. Actually that's just the NHL's generic team name font. You see it on all of the shirts players are usually shown wearing in dressing room interviews.
  5. It's pretty wild to think that with all the outdoor games the Blackhawks have been a part of, they've never worn red outside. I dont mind this look, but it's so similar to the last Winter Classic uniforms they had.
  6. I count 5 stripes in both pictures, as in the number of lines in a music bar.
  7. So unless the Giants win the pennant, we're getting two blue and red teams in the World Series.
  8. Nobody is saying that Las Vegas has more die-hard hockey fans than Quebec City. It's about growing the game. Think back to when the league first expanded and added teams in California and St. Louis instead of Vancouver. They gave those markets a chance to grow fan bases, and now they've become hotbeds for youth hockey in the States. The NHL is a business, and should always be trying to grow. The Maritimes may be able to support a CFL franchise, but the NHL would never work there. It's much easier convince fans from New Brunswick or PEI to travel to Halifax when you have 9 home games (mostly on weekends) rather than 41 home games.
  9. I'm not the biggest fan of the uniform, but if they got rid of the 425 on the patch and replaced it with MTL they'd have a great primary logo.
  10. I'm not sure if you know this, but most Canadians have a massive inferiority complex, especially when it comes to our neighbors to the south. Even after a dominant World Cup win, the last 2 Olympic and World Championship golds, plus the reining Conn Smythe, Vezina, Norris, and Jack Adams winners, many Canadians are still afraid that we'll lose hockey as "our" game. Also, leave it to ESPN to be a month late on breaking hockey news.
  11. It's for the alternate captains.
  12. The difference is that Pittsburgh wears a black jersey, so it makes sense for their socks to be primarily black. The Caps made the odd choice of pairing a red jersey with primarily navy socks. It was like when the Kings used to wear mismatched socks (the purple socks with black pants, jersey, and helmet looked alright, but the black socks with black pants and purple jersey created the Cooperall effect).
  13. Such a lazy, money grab. All they did was take their existing road uniform and replace the chest logo with the '90s wordmark. I get that they need to strike while the merch iron is hot, but they should've gone full throwback, or at least switched up the template and number font.
  14. Gold shouldn't be used anywhere other than the logo. As the recently ditched Pens uniforms taught us, metallic gold doesn't translate well to other materials. I don't think adidas would put glitter striping on a jersey. Beng the only red and black team to emphasize black over red is enough to stand apart from the Blackhawks/Devils/Hurricanes. Including more gold just makes them look more like the Flames.
