  1. I have said it before, but I think the NHL should allow teams to designate any set as the "home" uniform for the playoffs. This way teams like Winnipeg or Arizona can wear white to match their fans. As long as it is communicated ahead of time, it shouldn't cause any equipment logistics issues, as a team like St. Louis would know to pack their blue jerseys/socks/helmets instead of the white. In fact it may make things easier for equipment managers, as they might only need to worry about 1 set for the entire series.
  2. I just saw the NHLPA's Twitter account posted this picture today as they promote tonight's series openers: When I saw the sleeve numbers on the Blues, I realized it was not this year's uniform, but then I noticed they included the updated (white) captain's C on Pietrangelo.
  3. Me and the other immature kids at my elementary/high school always found this one pretty funny. Political correctness aside, Bridgestone Arena is a much better name.
  4. Anytime there's an all-Original 6 matchup, it's pretty safe to say it'll be the best looking one, but I'm also a big fan of Nashville-Dallas, and Pittsburgh-NYI. Some dream Finals matchups, aesthetically speaking, would include one of Dallas, Vegas, or St. Louis from the West, and one of Boston, Toronto, or New York from the East.
  5. Here are the East matchups: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Columbus Blue Jackets Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Washington Capitals vs. Carolina Hurricanes Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Islanders
  6. With the 2018-19 regular season finished, I thought it would be good to have a playoff uniform discussion. Here is what the first round is going to look like in the West: Calgary vs. Colorado Since we haven't seen the Flames' throwback 3rd against the Avs' current white, we'll have to use our imagination for the games in Calgary. San Jose Sharks vs. Vegas Golden Knights Nashville Predators vs. Dallas Stars Winnipeg Jets vs. St. Louis Blues
  7. I'm surprised they'd decide to go with the alternate in the playoffs considering how much the new owner seems to like the reds.
  8. My guess is that it will be something like the Maurice Richard biopic "The Rocket" (although they were able to actually use the Habs logo). Better than most when it comes to Canadian-produced films. Obviously if the movie is good, general audiences won't think twice about the licensing, but to me (and I'm sure to a lot of people that frequent these boards), the inaccuracy will be distracting.
  9. I wasn't sure where to post this, but I saw today that a movie is being made about the life of Terry Sawchuk. I got excited, because if there is one former player who's life could make a great movie, it's Sawchuk. Unfortunately the trailer left me disappointed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9L-cN9sSpo4 Pretty sad that a movie like The Love Guru gets the NHL license for logos/uniforms, but a movie about one of the greatest players of all time gets stuck with this in lieu of the classic Red Wings logo:
  10. The way the sleeve stripes are angled on the Pens jersey makes me think it's a slight nod to these: And of course the Flyers ruin a decent jersey with more contrasting name bar nonsense.
  11. This seems like a perfect opportunity for a colour v. colour matchup. Yellow against green. I could see the Preds going with something inspired by the Nashville Dixie Flyers:
  12. I’m expecting the Heritage Classic uniforms will just be an inversion of that graphic. Calgary in white versions of their throwbacks, and Winnipeg in blue WHA jerseys. Although I saw someone online make a joke that the Jets could troll the Regina fans by going with something Blue Bomber-inspired.
  13. If they're going to incorporate a letter into their primary logo, I would rather it be a V. You've already got Montreal, Calgary, and Columbus with "C" primary logos, plus Colorado and Chicago have C's on their shoulders. Besides, I generally prefer teams using their city/state initial rather than their nickname.
  14. The KHL recently released the uniforms for the upcoming 2019 All-Star festivities, and once again they put the NHL to shame: Some more detailed looks, and a bit of explanation for the designs, can be found here: https://en.khl.ru/news/2018/12/27/424250.html
  15. After seeing some of the debate going on online about the Canes wearing the Whalers' throwbacks, I've realized there seems to be a double standard when it comes to situations like these. For teams who have relocated, but kept the same name, no one seems to think twice about them throwing back to their former city's uniforms. We've never had heated opinions like this when the Dodgers, Lakers, A's or Braves have played Brooklyn/Minneapolis/Kansas City/Milwaukee dress up. Yet somehow, to some people, Carolina wearing Whalers jerseys is a slap to the face of every citizen of Hartford. I wonder how the reaction would've been if they had kept the Whaler identity when they moved instead of becoming the Hurricanes.
