    I agree. "Original 6 Dress Up" is to me a snarky term intended to demean a perfectly legitimate design aesthetic. There's nothing wrong with a relatively new team wanting to follow the design cues that have come to define its sport.

    BOBROVSKY! Now they just need to sign him and take care of that restricted free agent status. NHL teams will probably offer sheet him. I'm not worried about that. The Blue Jackets will match anything and I think he wants to play here over other markets. I am worried about what's coming out of the KHL. There's grumblings that the KHL will offer him unrefusable money. God that would suck. Just have to hope that good money and playing against the best in the world is preferable to great money in his home country. I'm also weary of the Jim Carey factor. He won the Vezina as a 22 year old and it ruined him. We also had a Calder trophy winning goaltender and that more or less ruined him. From all accounts Bob is the hardest working goalie anyone has ever seen so I don't think it'll happen to him, but you never know. Goalies are weird people.

    I'm not sure that has a whole lot to do with it. At least not on these boards. Seattle already has strong fanbases in three sports (even if the baseball one has taken a beating lately). The newest (and thus customarily weakest) is as crazy-devout as any in the country. These are all important when you consider corporate support, which budgets its dollars annually. Teams in the same market aren't pals, they're competitors for finite resources. If you're Major Company A, and looking to spread your dollars around, you're probably already invested in the Mariners and Seahawks. Got to be, that's what you do. You've seen the ludicrous rise of the Sounders and have gotten in on that ride, and you're tossing a few bucks out Husky way. Now there's a new hand out, one that isn't coming from a very strong place. The NHL is planning to enter a fairly crowded marketplace already. That is, I think, the real point. To the extent the city's hockey history has any bearing at all it's that we can't say there's already a strong culture there. Maybe there is, maybe there isn't - how do the Thunderbirds do? - but the odds start to look long when you add that to all the other factors. They don't have a great arena. They don't have an untapped market in terms of sports franchises. They don't have a grateful municipality eager for the validation they would bring. They don't seem to have any special enthusiasm waiting for them in the marketplace. This is what the Coyotes will be facing.

    I think what people are missing is corporate money/support. People have said that Indianapolis could support a third major league team. Fan wise? Yes, absolutely. Corporate sponsorship-wise? Not a chance. The Pacers, Colts, and Indians have the vast majority of it tied up. The same thing goes for Seattle. The fans would most likely show up, but could the NHL team survive playing the fifth-wheel in the corporate money dating game?

    Yes - we've already confirmed the Bills, Ravens, Redskins and Bucs. Broncos are going full collars. Wait, so the Bills are dropping it completely? I thought they were going the Patriots route. At least thats what the draft jersey looked like. Yes - the Bills are going with what was shown at the Draft.

    I like the white lettering on the gray jersey, just don't get to see it enough to fairly judge. I agree. The white text on the road unis is a nice change. Now if only the Fish would use the orange accessories with the home whites we'd be set.

    Sorry, I haven't seen them in person. Just wondering where you can get $175 Authentics and be able to sell them for $100 without losing money. To me, obvious sign of a fake.

    In this instance, a non-corrupt judge would be the unlikely thing. This once again begs the question of what someone who obviously dislikes Canada is doing in charge of a HOCKEY league. Quebec City would be the far better and more feasible market. But we moved Columbus to the east! We can't ever change it again you guys...

There's no guarantee of an arena to ever be built, there's no history of hockey support in this arena, and even if a new arena were constructed, the Seattle Coyotes would be permanently second place to Sonics 2.0. I love for cool new things to come to my city, but I'm not so blinded by civic pride that I can't see this being a terrible idea. It'd be fun to see NHL hockey at KeyArena once or twice, but long-term? I just don't see it.

    At this point, Bettman and the legislators are throwing b#tch slaps at Quebec. How did Seattle jump to the forefront of NHL relocation? Because preserving the dumbass realignment has become more important than ensuring the league actually has 30 healthy teams.

    Extra bold prediction: they move the team to a locale where they speak French, but not Quebec. Maybe New Orleans? Or why not Port-Au-Prince?

    As a Clipper fan, today has been insane. Stern must be loving the fact that on an off night for the NBA, these trade rumors have kept people talking about basketball. Right now the Clippers are saying they're "moving on" from the Doc deal, but it smacks of a leverage play. They did the same thing a couple times during the CP3 trade negotiations. They're clearly trying to get Danny Ainge to blink and agree to a deal without Eric Bledsoe in it. As for the Blake and Bledsoe for Dwight rumor - no, no, and hell no. Lakers won't do it, and I have a hard time believing the Clippers actually would either. Sounds bogus to me.

    I think OliverP's intention was to match the current color scheme, which looks pretty faded as is, IMO. The other reason why I think his version compliments the current primary is the gray being used for the perspective and I think it illustrates a NY-like skyline pretty well. I could easily see what he made being incorporated into a shorts logo or warm-ups. No offense to Brandon Moore, i love his logos and concepts (damn i just sounded like Kanye West), but i was going for everything funkatron101 said. i went for the original colorways, i wanted letters to look like skyscrapers, i wanted to keep the original ball and try to keep it simple so here is an update so you can tell me is there anything else you would like to see or change.

    While I totally agree that they threw away a lot of brand equity (although I didn't ever particularly like any part of the lightning brand other than the colours before the current set), and they definitely further than anyone else with the O6DU. I still think that putting aside all of that and looking at them purely aesthetically, the uniforms look good. The Hurricanes new uniforms aren't a good look at all. They are unbalanced, poorly designed and ugly. Both clubs threw away an iconic look to copy original 6 teams. One of them came away with something aesthetically pleasing and the other one didn't.
