  1. Latvia called, they want their flag back. Other than that, it's a nice jersey. I had no clue Saulietis had such a big influence on them

    NHL 2017-18

    There's nothing to debate. Linguists have for years teased the NBA due to their incorrect use of "Finals". The NHL has it right. Period.
  3. The original NY Islanders, Nordiques and Golden Seals logos all reside on the top tier of horrible NHL logos. Everything else in this thread is just nitpicking at logos vastly superior to those three.
  4. I'm sorry, did you just call the worst pro sports logo of all time "one of the greatest looks of all time"? HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA! I guess sarcasm really doesn't translate well on the internet (Cause there's no way you can be serious, I mean, common).
  5. This. I don't see why they're still trying to push them all these years later when it's never looked remotely good on anything they've tried them on. Also, these new black Hitmen jerseys would look so much better if they'd use the simple white mask logo they use on their website banner instead of the black on black mess they went with.
  6. They can, that's why the Olympic quarterfinals had a bunch of teams that are not in this tournament but were competitive and entertaining. If the NHL want's a 6 nation tournament that's fine, but don't call it the World Cup, call it the Six Nation Cup, because the world is not there and doesn't care. Sure, there may be some occasional blowouts with more teams, but there were massive blowouts in the NBA Finals too, when only the best teams were on the court.
  7. I'd rather have a World Cup that's an actual World Cup, which means nations competing against each other, not pointless gimmicky teams created by the NHL. Simply make it a 10 or 12 team tournament to give it some legitimacy. There's next to zero buzz about this tournament, even here in Toronto, and absolutely no international interest whatsoever. If it's as big of a dud as it's shaping up to be, it will be another 12 years before they try to trot it out again, Olympics or not.
  8. Now the guy's saying that he's upset because the Sox put business in first place. What does he think MLB is? It IS a business, and he's hired to do what his bosses say. It's not some noble moral cause, it's a children's game being played by grown men. If there was a safety issue with the equipment then it would be another story, but it was simply a shirt that he didn't like. That's not a good enough reason to not do your job and do something that most other people would be arrested for, as opposed to being given the day off. If he didn't like the collar he could have simply cut his off and let the game go on without the childish behaviour.
  9. Glad I'm not the only one who thought that.
  10. They use a crest featuring the single lion, but it's not the national crest, it has its own unique shape and features (as does their soccer federation logo).
  11. In other news, the Czech jerseys may have to be changed due to the small, single lion shield now being restricted in its use to just coins and stamps. According to a Czech newspaper, their hockey federation says the NHL was secretive about the design of the jerseys and did not share the finished result prior to the unveiling for approval.
  12. You're not serious are you? You have to be a bit warped in the head to even think that. It's not at all an obvious connection most rational people would make. And can people please stop calling it orange? - It's RED.
  13. That's because it's probably not going to happen. To the surprise of no one, leading international companies are not too eager to throw away money by advertising at a gimmicky fringe tournament watched by next to no one outside of Canada, while at the same time alienating the hockey traditionalists actually watching the thing by insulting the sanctity of ad-less jerseys in traditional North American sports. It doesn't help that they laughably want $8 million for the privilege either. Adidas didn't even bother posting anything about their new jerseys on their main Twitter feed, just the NA ones.
  14. Here you go. I love how they get way ahead of the game with "It features a trendy design with internationally recognizable World Cup of Hockey graphics". It reminds me of the stickers record labels would put on newly released albums saying "featuring the hits..." well before any of the songs were actual hits.
  15. Because the EU flag is blue, whereas purple or green would represent absolutely nobody. They could have used them for the NA team, but it's quite obvious that there was a conscious effort to make them look more intimidating (perhaps due to a perceived disadvantage due to their restricted age and experience), which could not be achieved with the likes of purple, which is generally regarded as a more effeminate colour.
