Greed is ... good?

OTTAWA: A dramatic change in the Senators' third jersey will see a predominantly black uniform with the word 'SENS' angled upward on the front. A fashionable red stripe will run from the arm pits, down the side of the jersey, to its base, where the stripe turns inward. A pair of narrow red and white stripes will adorn each arm, and the very bottom of the jersey. It’s quite a sharp design." -- Howard Berger, FAN 590
Credit where credit is due: The Leafs avoided any sartorial snafu. This is an out-and-out cash grab, but let's be fair, NHL teams, like Brandine on The Simpsons, have to wear what RBK gives them. If that means introducing third jerseys that, in some cases, are basically copies of the sweaters teams wore in the '70s and '80s, so be it.

Also of note: Bucholtz's Vancouver Canucks are bringing back their original 1970-71 jersey, the one where the "original 'hockey-stick-in-a-rink' logo is outlined in green and white on the front."

I'm very excited about the return of the blue/green stick in rink... one of the greatest uniforms ever, in my books.
