Guess I’m going to have a lot more time on my hands next season.

Hopefully they don’t get too gaudy, and luckily none of the jerseys i currently own or will buy in the future will have them. They’ve got ads on the ice, ads on the boards, ads superimposed on the glass and ads over the screen. If this is the straw that drives you to swear off hockey then be on your way.

The Europeanization of NHL jerseys.

Will the greed never end?

Remember these days? No ads on boards, no ads on ice, no ads on sweaters, no ads on helmets. Just good old time hockey. Molson and Esso in between periods. Ward Cornell. Bill and Foster Hewitt. Brian MacFarlane. No wealthcrypto crap from Ron Maclean.

After 55 years of closely following the NHL, I am about ready to throw in the towel.

Maybe it was inevitable, but it still makes me sad.

Buttman is to blame. Everyone knows it. He has made about $150M ($175M indexed for inflation) during his time running the NHL.

Chew on that.

I just hope the Wings reach out to Red Wing Shoes

link broken

It might be the only logo any company has that might blend into the jersey…not like I like it, but it’s Buttman’s NHL reality…..and since we all know these logos will grow in size every year until they are equally big as the team’s logo…might as well have some crossover.

Keep an eye out for seats being taken out for cars in the corners next.

Agreed.  I loved watching the Red Wings at the Olympia.

Meh, who cares. Game on the ice won’t change. I mean, I kinda wish the game the Red Wings play on the ice would change some, but that’s a different issue.
