Uniform Relief During The Lockout

from Paul Lukas of ESPN, 

Under normal circumstances, hockey fans would be gearing up for the NHL preseason right about now. From a Uni Watch perspective, that means we'd be asking a very specific set of questions: What will this season's new uniform designs look like on the ice? Which goalies will have the coolest new mask designs? Will the Red Wings still do that thing where they use block lettering during the preseason?

But these are not normal circumstances. Thanks to the lockout, there will be no NHL hockey for the foreseeable future. What's a uni-obsessed fan to do?

Fortunately, the Internet now features a wide variety of hockey-centric websites and blogs with a uni-centric focus. They're not a substitute for a full-fledged hockey season, of course, but they're a good stopgap for uni-minded fans who need a quick fix or an outlet during the lockout. Here's a quick rundown of them, which Uni Watch presents as a public service to hockey fans who are going through withdrawal. Think of it as your NHL lockout survival guide.
