2020-2021 NHL Changes

Recommended Posts

Another reason I think it passes now is just how badly owners are taking a beating because of the pandemic. A LOT of NHL owners have stakes in industries that are getting absolutely obliterated; stuff like casinos, hotels, catering and the like. Getting any kind of additional money is going to be attractive to owners getting battered by the pandemic, no matter how small that is (especially to owners as notoriously miserly as Jacobs).

 

Seattle's fee would help once it's all payed off, but even a small amount more is a small amount more that would be considered valuable.

Funny how people are all up in arms about seeing a Tim Horton's or Discover ad on the side of a helmet, but have never complained about seeing Bauer, CCM or Reebok there for years upon years.

I don't think the manufacturers put the logos/wordmarks there for aesthetics.

This is a dumb take. Almost every apparel manufacturer has their logo somewhere on their product. That's not the same thing.

 

EDIT: Also, the NHL has, AFAIK, never had the manufacturer logo on the front of the jersey. It’s always been below the collar on the back or on the hem. Nike puts theirs on the front but Nike jerseys are only widely-seen every four years at the Olympics.

It was fun while it lasted, friends. The NBA broke the ice and in 10-20 years at this pace we are going to end up with Liga MX soccer jerseys across the big four.

It'll be a lot longer before it gets to that point, if it does at all.

"You will get used to it" ...yes we will, because that's human nature and we all have to accept it when it happens. What a great argument.

I know , I know slippery slope. Blah, blah... but what hockey fan really can't wait to get their hands on their team's helmet?

Did this get lost in the helmet-ad kerfuffle, or did I just miss it?

Fan-made? Knock-off? Legit?

Bad fake. Square cut, bubbly logos and collar area are dead-giveaways for adidas knock-offs.

Almost definitely either a crudely-made fan jersey or a knockoff. The Blues already have four jerseys, five if the blue 90's alt comes back for another season, they wouldn't be adding more.

When the Winter Classic vs the Wild happens, that would probably be a 6th jersey, which is a lot of jerseys in a short amount of time...

Lots of people collect equipment. I know there are people who go through the effort of collecting the entire uniform a player wore rather than just the game-worn jersey. It's pretty cool to see someone assemble the entire collection and put it on a mannequin.

You've got a point. The ads might ruin the look. I said 'might' in the most neutral way possible.

"Raise $15 million," what, like they're selling wrapping paper and fudge?

I was holding out for some Joe Corbi's pizza.

It looks like they took an old Colorado Hockey Rockies (that is fun to say) and slapped on an alternate Blues logo.

Caps, Devils First in NHL to Announce Helmet Ads

December 22, 2020 - 19:22 PM

The New Jersey Devils and Washington Capitals wasted no time in locking up deals to stick an ad on their in-game helmets for the 2020-21 NHL season. Earlier this week, the NHL announced teams could place an advertiser’s logo on the side of their helmets for the upcoming season, a
