  1. What kind of updating do they need? They’re more of a classic hockey look than anything. The current alternate is definitely an already dated look. It’s a 20’s “stealth mode” jersey. The only thing that needs to be updated from the Reebok edge set, is the collars and the stripes on the breezers. And they fixed those in the Adidas set, except for the navy taking the place of royal blue.
  2. Well I know what they did, but I wasn’t sure why they had them. But I did just watch a video from Icethetics, where Chris did an interview with Phil Esposito. He said that he wanted to be unique, so he added elements like the bolt on the breezers or the victory stripes.
  3. Well they’re still wearing jerseys with no victory stripes... And I mean they wore them from 1992-2014, so they weren’t short-lived by any means, but they definitely were unique. I’ve never seen another team do that, even in lower level hockey. Does anyone know the story behind those?
  4. You’d almost have to go back to before the Radio-era to say that the Twin Cities were separate media markets. They’ve been joined at the hip for a long time...
  5. Well the biggest change in that was actually the style. Baggy fitting stuff was super in back then. I remember reading an article somewhere, about an NHLer, I can’t remember who, who said they loved to copy Mike Modano with his super baggy jerseys, because they thought he just looked so cool in it. They also said that apparently Mike Modano convinced the equipment staff in Dallas, during one of his first seasons there to let him have a larger size jersey. They finally did, and that’s another reason the baggier jerseys really caught on in the NHL. I have no clue how true that is, and I’m not sure where to find a source, but I definitely think of that story when I think of the large jerseys of that era.
  6. Very very surprised at the result of the Habs-Jets series. Not that the Habs couldn’t have pulled it off, but a sweep was not at all what I expected. Hopefully they can make their next series vs. the Knights or Avs fun. Speaking of the Knights-Avs series, the Avalanche are playing a lot like they did in their first round series against the Wild back in 2017. They dominated the first couple games and then just completely sat back and didn’t do anything. The Wild won game 3 in OT, despite outshooting the Avs like 30-10 or something like that. The Avs outshot a huge number of opponents in a row this season, and now all of a sudden they’re barely generating scoring chances it seems like. If the Avs don’t step it up here and play like the President Trophy winners they are, I have a feeling Vegas could finish this off in 6...
  7. Yeah, if the Avs matched their road sweaters to the road socks, it would be a much better match with the blue breezers. The burgundy on the hem plays really nice with the blue breezers, it just isn’t cohesive as a set. The home set is a much better look, because it has that cohesiveness. If they changed that, and ditched the black numbers it would be perfect.
  8. I’d stick with the Duluth Zeniths. It at least makes it feel like a zenith is a physical thing then I do agree that anything with Zenith City ____ does sound a little too Brandiose. Zenith City Superiors rolls off the tongue a little though.
  9. Is there a way to add that back to the mobile version?
  10. Would there be anyway to get the "Mark Forum as Read" button back? I like that there's still the mark site as read, but it was much easier to know which forums I had cleared all the content that I was interested in reading from.
  11. I would definitely go with Duluth only as the locale name. I mean you could go out even farther though, and use “The North Shore” as the locale name. That could lead to some fun branding as well. The name Zeniths could also work, as Duluth is known as the Zenith City. You could use Captains for the shipping industry, or something like Skippers, etc. Duluth (or North Shore) Fighting Walleye Duluth Iron Men for the Iron Ore processing history Duluth Trappers Duluth Voyageurs Duluth Lumberjacks Alternatively Duluth Lumber Kings
  12. Yeah I mean the historical precedent makes sense, but that jersey was really similar to the current set. That’s also exactly what I’d like to see for the yellow jersey. If the current yellow sweater matched those older alternates it would be much stronger.
  13. I like the idea of a yellow Penguins alternate to go with their classic set, just not this one. It’s a really weak design. The lack of a Golden Triangle, and the random shoulder numbers are dumb decisions. The striping is also really weak, especially considering there’s no hem stripes. It just feels bland and uninspired.
  14. I’m pretty sure for the color rush, the NFL had every team unveil their new looks at the same time. There were huge graphics with every team, with notable players, wearing their new color rush jerseys.
