Those who read my rants about the world of hockey know I dont mince my words and the latest NHL grand design really sets me off.
I have a reputation of being a hockey classifist and in my long career have designed a couple of hockey shirt doozies (THN award winning Les Moines de Bretay and the Horney Steedz just to name a couple)
I cried over the "shirt pipings" that were introduced to NHL hockey with the arrival of Reebok on the scene. but somehow the good designs of the Blackhawks, Bruins, Rangers etc stood firm and who really cares about shirt design of the Avs, Predators, Blues, Caps etc.
Now however the Germans of Adidas had the great idea to impose their "long standing hockey know how" on the NHL. Couldn't they stick with football or handball?
Judge for yourself:
