Really don't like the virtual ads on the ice

I’m probably gonna get flamed for this but watching the Pens and Flyers, I honestly barely notice the helmet ads, if at all.

I said that when I was watching the Leafs' scrimmage; the helmet ads are barely even noticeable on the standard game camera angle. If something this minor is what it took to even have this season, then so be it.

That is the worst for me.  The fact they change mid play and wobble is really annoying.

Why don’t they just put ads all over the glass?

No kidding. I couldn't understand the outrage about these ads. They'll be forgotten about in 3 seconds once the games start. It's a helmet - really doesn't matter.

It's almost as if people don't understand that the NHL (like pretty much any business on the planet) lost revenue last year and they needed ways to recover it. I'm not hopped up about 'em either, but I understand the reasoning behind it.

 

(First line of my reply not directed at you, but rather at the general outrage)

The Flyers used to have virtual ads on the glass behind the net and behind the benches. I know I had to make them the past few seasons. Either they're not doing it this year, or we lost our sponsorship with the Wells Fargo Center.

Can't see the ads, can you, Russ?

 

🙄

 

If you close your eyes after the 12 second mark you won't see the ads at all, no big deal

What makes you think there's anybody who doesn't understand this?

Why does the Vancouver store still sell the jerseys with "Vancouver" in the front? They haven't worn these for a couple of years now. For example, I want a Hughes one but they only have the old one which he never even wore since he was a rookie last season. Makes no sense.

They only changed that last season; 2017-18 and 2018-19 they still had it. Hughes debuted for the Canucks in March of 2019 (so the 18-19 season), so there'd be some Hughes jerseys of that style kicking around.

In-game look at the Avs' new gear on the ice. Looks super sharp.

Definitely a weird sight... I'm really on the fence about this. Black was alright, blue feels wrong for now but should end up making more sense.

As a native Coloradan, it will take some getting used to but it feels much more cohesive than black did. I dig it. I'm not sure how it will look with the white jersey though...

 

Lots of people, at least on social media, brought up the inconsistency with the blue helmets. It looks like the steel blue shade the Avs use is really hard to replicate, as expected. Not as big an issue from distance, but most, if not all, of the helmets end up looking more royal than steel blue. Reminds me of the Vikings shade of purple when they first came out with their newest set. Still an upgrade though.Image

 

EDIT: Here's a better look at a more "steel blue" helmet. Still some inconsistencies.

The Avs new gear reminds me of when the Predators traded their dark blue helmets for yellow/gold ones. That took a while to get used to as this one will.

These blue breezers are hideous. Love the helmet and gloves though but I almost think a gray set of breezers would be better here. They just call too much attention on tv.

Colorado's blue gear was always going to be fine with the home set.  It's with the road jersey I don't think it will look as good compared to the black pants/gloves.

The solution? Switch to black equipment like the Mighty Ducks did.

I’ve figured out my major problem with it. The blue on the lower part of the sweater blends with the blue of the pants and you’ve got a team that looks like they’re wearing higher wasted pants than Kylo Ren in The Last Jedi.
