  1. Either way, lets hope its done tastefully and not as...distasteful as the MLB's Turn ahead the Clocks. I wasn't even born then, and I want to forget it...
  2. I used the Red Sox as an example that clearly the companies are willing to push boundaries even in the midst of a huge nostalgia trip. If they are willing to :censored: with one of the more traditional teams there, what's stopping Adidas from trying it in the NHL? Yeah, Dallas, Winnipeg, and Detroit sucked, but that's 3 of 31. I don't think Adidas is beyond trying some more out there s#!+ with more lenient teams in hockey. I could see Vegas doing something really dumb with their jerseys.
  3. Aye, but look at what Nike is doing in the MLB now. Adidas went radical with the European WCoH in 2016 and it was recently received. I could see them trying such an idea with a couple of teams. Don't forget the Stadium Series jerseys are a little out there. Remember LAs chrome :censored:...
  4. I stand corrected. Thank you, I honestly didn't know that, but then I only started following hockey when Vegas came in.
  5. And who had heard of Alex Tuch or Jonathen Marchessault until the Knights miracle run? Not many, I'm sure, correct me if I'm wrong, but I doubt I am.
  6. They revised the rules because previous expansion drafts did not give a chance to even come close to contention. Atlanta Thrashers, anyone? As has been stated, Vegas was smart with their picks. How many elite players were on the original team? Prior to the Knights coming around, Fleury was the only one that was really a name player. Their roster hardly said Cup contender at the time.
  7. Agreed. I admit, I thought it was quite unfair that the Knights were so good, but then when I looked at their roster, I had to admit that the Knights were good because they were smart with their picks and earned their success. They were smart and did their research, so they earned their success. The NHL learnt from their mistakes in previous expansion drafts and Vegas' front office was smart with who they picked. Fleury was just the icing on the cake.
  8. Wrong term, same thing. You know what I mean. Folks talk of moving goalposts, but also, the sidelines have moved. If its straight design, we are able to talk normally. But with the ads, there's only a "right" or a "wrong" side. With these talks of ads, for some reason there is no middle ground. If other abominations of uniform design can have their defenders or supporters, so too can the ads. But hey, theology and rhetoric don't apply today, I suppose, do they?
  9. So, since I said it was cool to help pay for the bubble, but not after that, where does it put me? I hate the ads, just like I hate the weird chrome fad that's going around. You know what else I hate? The Stadium Series uniforms that are coming out. LA and Colorado's were horrible insults to hockey design, and a ton of you folks said that, no, its just progressive jersey design. Why the double standard? Why are we all of a sudden creating a right and wrong side for ads, but not a right and wrong side when it comes to "unique," "modern," or "progressive" design choices, like the chrome helmets or the 2019 Stadium Series?
  10. The black and white PPG logo almost looks like it stands for Pittsburgh Penguins Group, so that's a small blessing. Its a lot more bearable in black and white.
  11. Those are the best Leafs uniform they ever wore. Put the modern leaf on the front and its perfect!
  12. MOD EDIT: Quote removed. Oh, I don't have a problem talking politics (with reasonable people who listen, not just talk and/or shout), but some things need to stay separate. Uniform design is one of those that doesn't need to be tainted by politics.
  13. No, just someone whos tired of politics messing with everything I care for.
  14. Did you really have to bring that goal up? It still stings, and I'm primarily a Sens fan.
