    Mascots don’t belong in hockey rinks. The Flyers are now talking about bringing one on. Smh.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    @LAK74, some of us got an up and close look at your 1992-93 Robitaille on Keener’s live show today. I’ll be excited to see it posted here 😉

    Just to rile you up more, don't forget their mascot progression. The original mascot was... a yellowjacket wearing a blue jacket. With a backwards cap! Very "Poochie." But then they decided he needed to be green... But then someone finally got creative and introduced this guy... Of course, he didn't even last a season.

    oh yeah, right.... i believe there also was a bit of yellow/gold involved... oh man, they could have owned navy,light blue and yellow. No other team has that color combo, why the hell did they go with red,white and blue instead...😞

    The two shades of blue are what some Union soldiers wore in the US Civil War. Dark blue coats, light blue pants.

    but where does the light blue come from in those jackets 3rd jerseys, they are a red, navy, white team, right?

    IDK, while the 77-80 design you show is indeed primarily navy blue, it really holds no other design element similarities to the 2011 WC. As mentioned, if you look carefully at the details, you can see the inspiration for the 2011 WC from the original 67-68 debut season style. Note the number font being virtually identical (just slightly modernized for the 2011 style), the pants being completely identical and the pin striping pattern at the bottom and sleeves also being an adapted carryover to the 2011 style. Getting back to the original point made, it's likely that Reebok's designers felt navy blue was a "hot" color for the 2010-2011 season and they used it for both the Columbus 3rd as well as the Pens 2011 Winter Classic since it was an element of each team's color palette history.

    The navy color on the 2011 WC jersey is closest to their uniforms from 1977-1980, when navy blue became the primary jersey color. Was the team trying to copy this? I'm not sure.

    Well, the Pens' 2008 Winter Classic was directly based on the 68-69 style (http://www.nhluniforms.com/Penguins/Penguins02.html) but their 2011 Winter Classic style really was one of the first "fauxback" styles that was somewhat based on vintage styles but was also somewhat new in its own right. The Calgary Heritage Classic one that was the burnt yellow and maroon was another fauxback example. I would say the Pens' 2011 WC incorporated more design elements from their original 1967-68 uni (http://www.nhluniforms.com/Penguins/Penguins01.html) including direct lifts of the shell, number font and striping pattern. Just reversed the primary jersey color from the light blue to navy to differentiate from 2008 and use the felt circular crest instead of the diagonal letters.

    Of course, they are based on the Pens' jerseys from 1968-69...darker blue is used for the main color, but still.

    The Blue Jackets unveiled the Cannon 3rd at the start of the 2010-2011 season and the Pens Winter Classic style shown above was for the game on New Year's Day 2011, so they are both from the same season. Jackets 3rd was likely worn first, though I did not research the first date it was worn. http://www.nhluniforms.com/BlueJackets/BlueJackets04.html Personally I feel the Cannon 3rd is a significant improvement to the Jacket's standard home look and has a ton of character, especially with the felt crest. I liked the old typeface for the names and numbers because it was so distinctive, but I'll keep an open mind to seeing the home/away font on the new adidas version.

    I believe these came out after the Jackets released their cannon alts in 2010

    The Want List

    Still in the hunt folks for a Chicago Blackhawks TBTC Barber Pole jersey. Please message me if you have one you would like to part with. Size 48-52. Thank you and much appreciated!

    The Want List

    Yeah it's weird, I sorta keep an eye for them too and there's been nothing. A few 48s but nothing in the 52 plus.

    okay, now i see it again , it's not bad, but the roundel is not great imo. What about just some sort of cannon crest, wouldn't that look alot better?
  22. tomtucker

    third jerseys are back

    but don't you guys think this looks awful like the penguins winter classic , which i believed they adopted as a 3rd jersey?
  23. Dr_Puck

    The Want List

    Really? Not a single white or black Bruins CCM at a decent price? Been looking for months, can't find anything in a 52 or 54.

    i love traditional hockey jerseys as much as the next guy.... but these and just boring and uninspired, looks like all the rest, like pittsburghs blue 3rd they once wore

    It is good or not?

    It’s almost certainly a team-issued blank that was later lettered with Iginla, or perhaps a game-issued that was stripped and relettered. Iginla wore 58’s, so like you said, it’s too small to be a game worn for him. Interesting that it’s a repatched vector- you’d figure most of those would have been cleared out by 2013.

    Looks like Iggy barfed all over his jersey. (So would I if I had to spend time in Pittsburgh...😁)
