The new Lightning third jerseys look like the Kings

This is basically like the Kings jerseys. This is underwhelming and the balance of black and blue isn’t all that great. I actually don’t think this third set is strong at all. Even this fake one is better.

Here are more pictures from the team site.

Black and blue? Reminds me of this.

The Washington Capitals Winter Classic look has a lot of stripes

This is supposedly what the Capitals will wear for the Winter Classic. The official unveiling will come shortly.

But my first reaction are the stripes. It’s on the shoulder, on the socks. I like the shorts with the stars and stars down the sleeves. It’s a pretty bold look. I like the chest logo too.

It’s actually not bad. It stands out. I wonder how it will look on ice. The massive amounts of stripes will be something that I will have to get used to. It’s not bad, but it’s not great in my opinion. But since it’s just for one game, it might be OK.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ third jersey has a championship look

Pittsburgh Penguins’ third jersey has a championship look

Samuel:

I really like this. It’s the classic Pittsburgh colors (instead of the gold they use currently) and it really has that retro look. Very nice. Well done. One of the best looking jerseys in hockey right now.

The Penguins will wear the Pittsburgh Gold jersey 12 times during the regular season.

And we’re guessing it could make a playoff appearance, too.

The new St. Louis Blues uniforms look nice

What I like about these new Blues uniforms is that they look nothing like their old set. Removed are the unnecessary pipings and the odd color placements. Instead it’s a simple classic look that is similar to what they wore before Reebok Edge took over.

Sometimes simplicity is the best and the Blues nailed it. It’s a jersey you’d be proud to wear. Good job!

Levi’s Stadium to host NHL Stadium Series game between Sharks and Kings

This is what I have been waiting for!

I went to the one in LA this year and it was a blast. I can only imagine how this one is going to be in a new stadium and filled with Sharks fans.

What makes this great is that outdoor hockey is nothing like anything else I have seen. It’ so cool to see hockey outdoors. I hope that the weather won’t get too warm. But it should be great. I don’t know how I can find my way up north for this, but I know that I want to do this. This is going to be great!

Ugly sweaters for all teams is the best news I’ve heard

I have been a fan of the ugly sweaters when they first released the NFL batch. Then they released the baseball versions. Then the hockey versions.

The good news now is that all teams will get their sweaters. At the time, all NFL teams were represented but only a handful for both MLB and NHL teams. In fact, the basketball versions were also limited. This news makes me happy.

I was apprehensive about getting the 49ers sweater because I didn’t really like the designs enough to get one. I had hoped that they would have them for the other teams. Now with this news, I am leaning towards the Sharks. Winter sport with a winter ugly sweater. That works out perfectly. But if the Warriors one is nice, that might be my second choice.

San Jose Sharks are adding “ice girls” and fans aren’t happy

Even though their California counterparts both employ ice girls, along with several other teams in the league, the San Jose Sharks have never gone that route. When the ice needs to cleared, it’s usually skaters in black pants, fully covered.

There was no need to go with the eye candy route for the Sharks. The fans in San Jose actually love their hockey and don’t need eye candy to come to the games. (Yeah, that’s a dig at SoCal hockey “fans.”)

However, the Sharks think that ice girls are the way to go. They will wear skin-tight black pants, a top that will cover some of their body. They’ll just look like this. Essentially, it’s objectifying women, right? Kind of like what cheerleaders are for basketball and football, right?

Even though this will be a co-ed team, the men will be fully clothed while the women will be wearing tighter, more revealing outfits.
