  1. I chuckle at this and the people of St. Louis who seem to forget the truth that the Rams burned LA to go to St. Louis. What goes around, comes around, so St. Louis deserves it.
  2. It's been done before. Don't you remember 2016 Red Wings vs Avalanche at Mile High Stadium? I really doubt four years later, the NHL will match the same two teams against each other in the same region.
  3. Saturday home games through the rest of the season and two late December road games.
  4. I think it depends on which team you are thinking of getting. For a team like the Kings, I don't see much difference visually. My wife has a Fanatics one and I compare it to my Reebok replicas and it holds up, and even in store it looks very similar. Yet, I've seen the difference in grey color on the Vegas jerseys. For someone not wanting to spend $200, a Fanatic jersey is a good deal. I will say the Adidas authentics appear to be nice in quality.
  5. As far as these Angels uniforms. I prefer them over what they currently wear, because it's what I grew up watching and the current uniforms are just a ripoff of the Texas Rangers 1990's uniforms. Still Mighty mentioned that he prefers the thicker halo, I never liked that as I thought it was too thick. I think what they wear for a halo is perfect width. There are elements of the current look, that I like and elements that could go. The one thing that should go, is the red jersey. I swear that red jersey is cursed, because it seems as soon as they unveiled it the team started heading south. Of course the "wonderful" management (and that is sarcasm) of Arte Moreno helped that.
  6. This is something I gotta know and I think a lot of people would love to know. Gothamite, you seem to know a lot about Orange County/Anaheim. Where exactly did you get your Doctorates Degree on the subject of Orange County and Anaheim? I'm curious as to what school teaches this subject.
  7. The Kings did this and except for only being worn in warmups, I think this is cool. If you want a good representation of the Wild Wing jersey, check out CustomThrowbacks.com.
  8. Actually Laguna Beach is the Breakers. They reverted back to the Breakers in 2003. Still, both names are very creative.
  9. What I find interesting is watching Vegas all year long and their puck luck, and now seeing it has disappeared and they look lost. If anyone thinks Vegas is coming back, you forget how close they are to being swept. Game 1 was a wild affair that they were lucky to win. Vegas welcome to the NHL where the Hockey Gods are cruel and will make you suffer. Winning a Cup ain’t that easy. Sorry.
  10. I'm sorry, either these officials are that bad, or they are seriously doing everything they can to allow Vegas to win. I'm sorry, you can't call the Wilson crosscheck on McNabb if you didn't call the Reeves crosscheck on Carlson. Then to follow it up with the "hooking" call where Miller falls down 15 minutes later. Heck, even soccer players are laughing at the horrible acting. Miller should've gotten two for diving. I swear the NHL officials are getting worse every year and have no idea what they are doing.
  11. I love how the refs get together and after the fact call a penalty on the Marchessault interference (which it was), but they look the other way on the Reeves cross-check that lead to the goal.
  12. I give Vegas credit for winning, but I still sit here and ask, how players who could barely make their teams last year, now look like the '84 Edmonton Oilers franchise? Sometimes I watch Vegas and how teams play against them and it's like they stop playing and watch or just hand Vegas the puck. There's a different feel to Vegas games... it's an odd feeling. In my heart of hearts, I'm hoping it's all players who are having career years and there's nothing fishy going on. If there is, that would be bad for the game. Watching Vegas games live and on tv, there's a different feel to it and I can't place my finger on it what it is.
  13. Because light blue uniforms work to break up the monotony of grey road jerseys. Sorry, if you like boring, but light blue road uniforms work. What doesn't work are stupid templates such as the trend of using the tequila sunrise jerseys. Those need to stop... FOREVER!!!
  14. Great work there BMA. I find it interesting that Dolphin fans want to distance themselves from the Marino-Shula era, yet that was their most successful era. They had solid teams year in and year out, and the uniforms represented that. I guess you could say, the current uniforms represent the mediocre state the franchise has been in since the mid 90's. The uniforms and current look of the Dolphins has the feel of people without football knowledge trying to come up with something cool and innovative and what will sell in Macy's or Nordstrom than look good on the field. They look like cheap Chinese knockoffs.
  15. They were blue because Quicklane’s colors are blue and orange and they are Ford service, who uses also blue.
  16. The whole "modern" vs "classic" design. First of all to the poster who said, "Can we stop with the "I nominate [random traditional matchup] as uni matchup of the week, so clean!"?" Um, no. If you don't like it, walk away. As far as the argument goes, I'm can only think of Hawaii, the current San Diego State, and Oregon with the wings as good uniform designs of the modern style. Boise State? Has potential, but falls short in so many areas. Helmet sides not matching, over-sized logo on helmet, stripes on arms, not on pants, gradient numbers all kill what could be a solid look.
  17. Everything. Less is more. They look professional. I'm sorry that you can't appreciate it.
  18. I don't see a problem with the Mets script as mentioned. It's a script font, it's based off of handwriting and not suppose to be perfect. As far as the Oilers "issue", I love it and think it looks great.
  19. Those UAB uniforms are nice and not over-designed. Good job!

    Go here. They do quality work. http://www.customthrowbackjerseys.com/los-angeles-kings-1995-ccm-vintage-jersey-customized-any-name-number-s/
  21. What they meant to say is, "Don't be lazy." Yet, they were lazy with the quote.
  22. It must be spring. The Sharks are choking away another series, John Tortorella looks defeated, and Bruce Boudreau looks confused while his teams just wilt away in the playoffs.
  23. Am I the only one who saw the Kassian hit on Couture and Dillon as being highly questionable and should've been assessed a penalty for charging. He came from 15 to 20 feet away and launches at Couture's head and there's no call? I saw Shattenkirk do that to Kevin Gravel from 3 feet away and get two games, and Kassian launched himself at the head and made contact of two. That sounds like a four game suspension (two for each) if the NHL would be consistent in their player safety. I doubt Kassian will even get a slap on the wrist.
  24. I agree that it's too Cubs looking. Go out and find a good font, look at fonts and how they are used in logos. Figure out what logos you like. A couple of my favorite places to look, because I like the retro look are Letterhead Fonts and Retro Supply Company. Look at how the fonts, give the feeling of a certain look. Look through the sites and see how they make things work. If you use a good font and good elements, the name "Carl" can give off different feels to it. What do you want your logo to say? It's that simple and yet that hard. http://www.letterheadfonts.com/ https://www.retrosupply.co/
