2020-2021 NHL Changes

Recommended Posts

I'm glad to see that the Flyers are not on that list. But since it's inevitable, I would be completely surprised if it isn't Comcast/Xfinity.

Nice, they look like the Lightning now. There was nothing wrong with the black gear

Only because of the black PRACTICE sweaters...  They won't look anything like Tampa in a real game....

I'm only seeing grey and black jerseys in the picture I quoted. Lightning colours

True. But there are too many red, white and blue teams. Colorado were the only red, white, blue and black team

And yet the Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys didn't get any flack? I don't recall lavender being ANY team's colours, but hey. I'm the rookie right?

Penguins have just announced the worst looking helmet sponsorship so far:

couldn't the teams just make these helmet sponsor logos , like a contrasting team color? This one could be black instead of blue. Guess then it wouldn't be so glaring.

The NBA is at least pretty good (although not perfect) about having the jersey ads in team colors.

Just waiting for the league to go full NCAA football and announce it will now be called the Tim Horton's Stanley Cup Finals.

I am totally burying my head in the sand for this one.  It is so utterly offensive to brand your divisions that some tether in my brain has wilted and died.  All that's left now is to remember the golden days before we were all whores.

Can't wait to hang the MassMutual division championship banner next year!!  What an honor!!

 

(I know the game is the same but these changes are taking a huge hit to my NHL fandom....)

I thought the branded division names was a joke, but it's indeed real!

 

I can't mock it, because I'm sure the NBA and MLS aren't too far behind here. Audi Supporters Shield. Playstation Western Conference Finals. Stanley Cup presented by Ford.

 

God forbid billionaires actually lose money once in a while.

Love this blurb in an NHL dot com article:

 

Though the fans will have the ultimate say regarding the top players in the Scotia North Division, MassMutual East Division, Discover Central Division and Honda West Division, NHL.com writers have made their own picks using the same ballot the fans have.

Yup. I read the same thing. It must have killed that writer to put all of those sponsorships in. It looks just awful.

I'd say this is minor-league :censored:, but I can't even think of any minor leagues that have sunk to this level. Bettman is the worst.

I wonder if this is how the "economic" issues got resolved.  The NHLPA and NHL agreed to these helmet and division sponsors.

The QMJHL used to have a "Telus Division," which I think was the teams in the Maritimes. I think the other two were East and West Quebec.

So will the division champ banners have to have the advertiser logo on them?  Or will the team be allowed to just say "East Champions"?

What does this have to do with anything? Felt like throwing in your 2 cents?
