  1. He was a big part of the Battle of Ontario in the early 2000s as a Senator. Maybe you're too young to remember? Either way, he played 8 (EIGHT) seasons with those two teams and he has always been the tallest player in the NHL so it's not like he was a complete unknown on those teams, and by the time he got to Ottawa he was a very solid D-man. He doesn't really belong in this thread, sorry.
  2. You're the only one doing that. It feels condescending, as if you want your posts to stand out from the others because your opinion is better than everyone else's. For what it's worth, I liked the black gear because it was a quirk. Like Boston's yellow socks, NYR's lettering instead of a logo, the Blackhawks using about 30 colors in their logo while the jerseys are red, white and black only or any team that uses mismatching home and away jerseys. It was part of the charm and like it or not, black has always been part of their colour scheme
  3. Still typing in this very condescending way, I see. Underlining words doesn't make what you say any more true, you know? That's just your opinion anyway. I think the black gear looked fine And no one is confusing the Habs for the Capitals either. They stood out better with the black gear imo
  4. I'm a gear near first and foremost, the black gear was boring but the contrasting cuff roll trend is getting played out
  5. No, really? I could have sworn those were the new jerseys
  6. True. But there are too many red, white and blue teams. Colorado were the only red, white, blue and black team
  7. I'm only seeing grey and black jerseys in the picture I quoted. Lightning colours
  8. Nice, they look like the Lightning now. There was nothing wrong with the black gear
  9. You're absolutely right. Not sure why I thought you guys were talking about the Pens. My bad lol
  10. Have the black helmets been confirmed by the Penguins, or are we going by what EA has shown? Cause EA regularly messed things up, they can't be considered reliable for those kinda things. Either way, Pittsburgh could just wear their white helmets for that one game, I see this as a non-issue Or you know, white
  11. Nice numbers, but you're cherry picking. Yeah they went down a bit after growing exponentially for the last 15-20 years. The Panthers and other teams in non traditional markets have never made any money. This is nothing new. The owners still make money with the rink itself Not this year, of course, since there are no concerts. Again, $15M in helmets ads is chump change in the grand scheme of things. It's just unnecessary, there were enough ads already. To keep this uniform related, I'd be curious to know how much money the league has made with the Reverse Retro jersey sales
  12. Alright, I'm a socialist because I don't like blatant greed. Good one. Based on assumptions like that, what does that make you? Yes, they do have a bottomless pit of money, they're literally billionaires, are you trying to make me feel bad that everybody right now is struggling but we should excuse greed from the people who are by far the least likely to suffer monetarily from the pandemic? Revenues have been increasing every year for what, 2 decades now? Have you already forgotten about the 2 expansion team fees? ($500M for Vegas and now $650M for Seattle). No amount of mental gymnastics on your part will make me believe the owners aren't just being greedy, cause they are. Objectively. They added new ads on the boards and behind the nets in the last few years and now they're thinking about adding a strip of ads on the glass around the rink. They could have used the tarps that cover the empty seats to display more ugly ads, but no, they had to use the player helmets. They keep making record profits, I don't feel bad for them. About the ads on this forum, again, apples to oranges, why am I not surprised? Chris isn't a billionaire, he's just trying to keep this free-to-use place alive
  13. All the people who support ads on helmets can do is compare apple to oranges, it seems
  14. I don't get it. Basically they're just saying the already existing ads on the boards will now be controlled by the NHL instead of the home team?
  15. Yeah it doesn't look like light royal/steel blue, but I think that's because of an Instagram filter. The colors and lighting seem a bit off. I'm already not liking the decision to go with blue gear but if it doesn't even match the blue on the jersey it's gonna go from lateral move at best to an unambiguous downgrade
  16. Yeah I liked it too. I had him in mind when I made that post
  17. Pretty sure it's only a matter of time until a team tries matte helmets. Easton did it a few years ago and it didn't sell that well but in the right context, it could look alright I think. Or maybe not that good but thematically consistent at least, like with the all black "stealthy" Lightning and Sharks third jerseys maybe
  18. MOD EDIT: I'm done asking nicely. This nonsense stops now.
  19. MOD EDIT: Attacking people never ends well. Especially when you admit you're attacking someone. Reel in the attitude. Now. Thanks.
  20. Ah yes, a secondary logo is the same as a sponsor logo in clashing colors. MOD EDIT: Dial it down and right quick.
  21. False equivalence. You buy a Nike shirt, not a Nike shirt with a Dunkin Donut logo slapped on it. Also, no one is forcing you to buy their shirts with the big logo on the front. They sell lots of clothes with very minimal or no branding at all. Stop trying to make this comparison, it's not working at all. I'm tired of the incessant intrusive advertisement everywhere I look, if you like it, good for you. I don't have to bow down and accept it
  22. Nobody actually complains about Bauer using their own logo on their equipment, this guy is just trying really hard to be a contrarian. False equivalence
