  1. A couple of years ago, UK retailer Primark started selling these t-shirts modelled after jerseys. The Kings have never worn stripes like that. The Ducks one is a bit closer to something they actually wore (even if the logo doesn't match the era of that uniform), but because of this using the third jersey's recoloured Mighty Ducks crest and what appears to be a case of weirdly insistent brand guidelines, there's no orange anywhere and it's been swapped out with yellow.
  2. I'll admit that I don't follow basketball, but even I did a double take when I saw his name trending this evening. Not only him, but one of his daughters too. Can't imagine what the surviving family's going through right now.
  3. And here's me thinking it was a reference to the Angels' Rally Monkey
  4. Wild Wing playing goalie in the Wild Wing jersey. That is all.
  5. The Los Angeles Tin Foil Hats.
  6. The colour schemes aren't identical, but with the Ducks in particular they're similar enough where it's easy to see why comparisons could be made. The original version of this Canucks sweater actually used orange before swapping it out for red, so there's that too. -- The Winter Classic looked great, but I'll admit I'm not sure if I liked the Stars bringing back gold for the gloves and Bishop's goalie pads. Between that and the beige pants it felt like there was just a bit too much going on.
  7. Angled sleeve stripes, an angled hem stripe, and angled letters for the crest? I'm not sure why the Kings would want to pay homage to their crosstown rivals, but more power to them I guess. Oh, and the jersey looks terrible. As for the Avs, maybe an Unpopular Opinion here but I like the idea behind it. It's a bit weird and unconventional, but it's also creative and easily the better of the two. The Bruins third is alright, I guess.
  8. Looks fantastic. Not much else to say here, but the Texas patch is much better than the regular version.
  9. Black is the new Canucks. -- I'm basically on the fence. I like the Flames with black, especially their 2004-07 set. Or that third jersey they used a few years ago, which would have made a good starting point for a new uniform minus the wordmark. Both colour schemes are befitting of a team named the Flames for similar reasons. But I also think ditching black would set them apart from the abundance of red and black teams we already have in the NHL. I'm too lazy to dig it up, but a while back I did a concept replacing the black of the 2004-07 set with maroon. If I have the time I might do another one with that idea in mind. The Preds jersey is nice. Pretty much what we all expected save for it being white instead of yellow.
  10. Ducks-Flames usually makes for a horrible matchup, so I'm definitely looking forward to this one where they'll both look good for a change. Speaking of the Flames; this Heritage Classic looked fantastic and is up there as one of my favourite outdoor matchups. I kind of want one of those Jets jerseys.
  11. Now that I've seen it in action, I think the Oilers third is far too plain. The sleeve stripes are too thin and they kind of bleed in with the numbers. If they had mimicked the striping of the regular uniforms, it'd be a bit more interesting. As is, it doesn't feel like an Oilers jersey.
  12. That third period was frustrating to watch. So many opportunities but a couple too many screwups. They practically handed Pastrnak's third goal to him on a platter. The one game I get to watch, too. F***'s sake
  13. Boat floater: Tonight's Ducks-Bruins game is on at 6pm UK time! And it's listed as a free game on the NHL website, so with any luck I might get home in time to watch it.
  14. My thoughts exactly. It looks alright in photos - save for the collar treatment - but on TV it just doesn't work. I like the updated stick-in-rink, but that's about it.
