  1. Los Angeles Kings too during most of the 1970s.
  2. Love these Tampa Bay uniforms. I would have preferred them wearing blue helmets instead of black and bringing in proper black/blue/white gloves like they used to wear to match with this set.
  3. Cannot have this topic without these favourites.
  4. Something I think would be an awesome idea but will never come to fruition. The Canucks need to move their farm team back to Vancouver. Have them play at Pacific Coliseum. Have the farm team wear black, yellow, and salmon red like the Canucks used to before they left the Coliseum.
  5. Alberta Golden Bears have recently worn their yellow jerseys with an number of uniform combos. With white, yellow and green pants. Also with white alternate helmets.
  6. My understanding is the 2 Lake Tahoe games will be RR vs. RR. Orange vs. yellow has been done numerous times in the NHL. Think back to the 1970s and 1980s. Flyers at Golden Seals, Flyers at Kings, or Flyers at Canucks was orange vs. yellow for many years.
  7. A minor issue preventing this. NHL teams do not have the helmet manufacturer mark on the sides of their helmets anymore. Haven't for years. It is only on the front. They would not cover it with an ad. Good idea as long as it was subtle and NHL teams had the helmet manufacturer mark on sides again.
  8. Would want Seattle and Vancouver. Think it would be Seattle and Las Vegas. Think Vancouver could be a successful NBA city for a number of reasons, but the expansion fee price tag I heard will be through the roof. $2.5 billion USD. The Aquilini family own Rogers Arena. They have looked into trying to purchase a franchise a decade ago inquiring about the New Orleans Hornets. However, 2 years ago Francesco Aquilini was saying the increased price for a franchise is now too rich for his blood.
  9. The Avalanche have an issue with their white jersey with the equipment change to the slate blue. The numbers and the name on back are in black on the white road jersey. I would expect that is being changed? If not that is a huge problem because it will not work anymore if the black equipment is gone.
  10. Purple pants with black socks way better than the black yoga pants with black socks on the road.
  11. Canucks' top scorer Elias Pettersson wearing the wrong equipment. Stopping shots instead. https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/on-the-bench-boys-elias-pettersson-canucks-goalie
  12. Yeah, noticed since the posting they have continued to wear the black. Just find it strange because I believe it was just last year that Charlottetown had introduced new uniforms and the gold jersey was the new primary dark.
  13. Definitely agree with you about the orange jerseys. If the Flyers want to do this as a nod to tradition, they should wear the white nameplates with black letters on both the orange and the white jerseys. It is gimmicky with the Flyers current white jersey, which features the black nameplates with white letters.
  14. Dan Cloutier wearing a combo mask at the tail end of his career. He was one of the last goalies to continue wearing the helmet and cage after so many goalies quit with that.
  15. Gretzky in the Cooper helmet in junior: Also does not seem right seeing Dave Semenko wearing a helmet:
  16. Question for junior hockey fans back east. Noticed Charlottetown Islanders home opener was last night. Looks like they have new black jerseys but could not find any media surrounding release of a new jersey. This is the new third and they are sticking with the gold jersey as the primary right? https://theqmjhl.ca/video/charlottetown-had-fun-against-saint-john-sea-dogs-1-islanders-5
  17. All remaining Vancouver Whitecaps home games in Portland. I guess for this year they are now the Vancouver, WA Whitecaps.
  18. No, you don't want to do that. We may see many teams with uniform redesigns for 2021 now that New Era has their foot in the door. The Roughriders have really nice alternate uniforms that are throwbacks. Not to late to be a Riders fan. If you ever end up in Regina, SK and see a game there live, the atmosphere is second to none in the league. It means something there. It is clear that your best choice is to cheer for the Riders. Plus the Riders used to have really awesome uniforms with wraparound helmet logo back in the day.
  19. The double-flag Canes logo is an example of a good-looking secondary logo and shoulder patch. To me, it does not work well as a primary crest on the jersey. Maybe it is the symmetry of how it looks on the front of the jersey, but just don't like it as a primary crest.
  20. Not a bad look, but it would have looked better if they kept the kelly green trim like they did with the original version of this uniform. They did the right thing by widening the stripes but the green was a bit too dark as a trim colour on the black uniforms. I do prefer today's uniform because we finally have a team back in the NHL what wears a kelly green jersey as their primary look. A downside with it is it looks like a green version of a Chicago Blackhawks uniforms. Could use a minor redesign and add some silver trim in the uniform to go with the black trim.
  21. The socks did match better and had black when the jersey was strictly their alternate. When it became the regular dark jersey, the socks changed.
  22. Rhinos did have a logo and it would have been the worst in the NHL. Would have been a purple and teal team.
  23. I know the school loves having the NCAA designation, but I would be way more interested in following what the football team was doing if they went back to playing Canadian ball in Canada West. Been to SFU football games and would so much rather go to UBC ones because of who the opponents would be. Would have more of a vested interest if SFU was playing UBC, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba for example rather than Azusa Pacific and Humboldt State.
  24. You are totally right. What really boggles my mind is they have now abandoned this uniform not once, but now 2 times. When you see fans wearing this blue jersey side by side with another wearing the current orange jersey, you question why they would ditch this classic blue jersey.
  25. Whatever the end up doing for the name, we know they will remain green and gold. Just hope they make the right choice and drop the black trim they have been using on the helmet striping and number shadow. No more black trim gets my vote.
