  1. Patrick Division used to be: Pitt, Phil, Wash, NYR, NYI, NJD Adams Division used to be: Bos, Mtl, Hart, Que, Buff Norris Division used to be: Chi, Minn, Stl, Tor, Det Smythe Division used to be: LA, Cal, Edm, Winn, Van
  2. Thing is, Gretzky could have made the Kings Purple / Gold uniforms Popular, especially given their '93 Cup run. And Yes, very few Pittsburghers know about the Pirates Hockey Club (which is why I grew up hating the fact that yinzers used to call it Black and Steelers Gold, now it's just called Pittsburgh Gold)
  3. The Lakers were originally Blue / White when they moved to LA from Minneapolis, the Kings uniforms were Purple / Gold from their inception in '67, the Lakers colors changed to Purple Gold that same year. Sure the Lakers had more success than the Kings but I hate when people say well Purple and Gold are Laker colors or (since I am from Pittsburgh) Black and Gold are Steelers and Pirates colors first, ignoring the fact that the NHL Pirates Hockey Club (1925-1930) were Pittsburghs first Pro team to wear the City colors of Black and Gold, not the MLB Pirates(Blue / white / red uniforms) nor the NFL Steelers (not born until 1933)
  4. EA hasn't been the same without direct competition pushing them to do better.
  5. Only thing I didn't like about this look was the color scheme. The Gretzky era are still my favorite Oilers look but if you made this in Royal Blue and Orange
  6. The Bridge that leads me from my local community (Homestead / West Homestead and Munhall) to the City of Pittsburgh is now called the Homestead Grays Bridge (formerly the Homestead Hi-level Bridge)
  7. I agree, as much as I have to hate the Flyers (being a Pittsburgher and all) but I loved their 80s look
  8. But why was Black added in the first other than being Black for Black sake? I'm loving this whole what's Old ('80s) is New again trend. It's 2020, the Flames retro (bright colors) uniforms POP on my HDTV screen. My Pens ditched Black / Yellow Gold for that god awful Vegas Khaki (my St Johns Bay Khaki work pants are the same color "Gold" as my wifes '08 Fleury jersey, which was bought from the Civic Arena Team Store) Beige Gold and it looked Horrible on my HDTV. The Black / Yellow Gold POPS. I just don't get the dark drab colors. Oilers Royal Blue / Orange POPS, the Navy / Orange is just meh
  9. I hope so, it's long over due! My Pens did it, the Islanders, the Oilers (but then they F'd it up again by going Navy), the Sabres...the Flames and the Capitals need to do it!!
  10. I agree! I'm tired of all the Road Teams looking the same. I grew up in the 80s, some really good Road uniforms in that era
  11. Absolute truth!! I'm not a Pro Athlete but my brothers (I have 3 younger brothers) and I get really intense when we play Spike Ball or Whiffle Ball home run derby, so if 4 brothers can be intense over some picnic game (in front of nobody) LOL, I'm sure these Pro Athletes get intense when playing their League games. As a former usher at CONSOL Energy Center, Elevator 8 duty was awesome (locker room - press box...well ok FedEx level near the staircase to the press box...but it was only used by players, staff, media, etc). most players (I got to talk to) have said they really don't notice the crowd until a stoppage in play because they are focused on their shift / game but I agree we as fans really don't matter in the bigger picture
  12. I never understood why people felt that way! I mean once the actual Games started, the players intensity levels were gonna ramp up, not like they were gonna begrudgingly play these games at a half assed level because there were no fans in the stands. I'm willing to bet players / coaches liked the idea of being able to hear the communication with their teammates on the ice, I may be wrong but didn't Edzo touch on that earlier in the Playoffs? Watching at home on TV, I really enjoyed being able to pick up the Sounds on the ice better. The chirping, the chatter, the sounds of the skates on the ice. It was definitely a Neat viewing experience
  13. Congratulations Tampa Bay, you Earned it!
  14. You're still a baby! I'm 47, my childhood (including teen years) is getting fuzzy in the rear view mirror LOL. Every time a AARP commercial comes on TV, my wife is like, 3 more years (meanwhile she's 44) LOL
