Must have gotten a LOT on $$$$ to get moved from his comfy lazyboy in NJ. Interesting to see how all the brains will work under one roof.

Lou drafted Shanny... all these guys have a lot of history together, not sure there is any concern about them working together. 

Odd that the youngest of them is the one in charge...  that will be an interesting dynamic.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane is reportedly under a police investigation near his hometown of Buffalo.

The Buffalo News reports that police in Hamburg, New York are investigating an incident allegedly involving the 26-year-old.

So Vegas and Quebec City have moved onto the 2nd phase of expansion applications. Vegas name were thought out to be .. Which I think are all terrible names and logos.. The Bones, Falmingos, Outlaws, Nordiques (huh?), Rat Pack, Dealers, Sin and Strippers.. Here is the link to the logos and names and explantions.. Thoughts?

I'd take a hockey piece from ESPN with a grain of salt. Although, the Bandits logo and colours look pretty decent. FWIW, those names are just ideas put forth by the writers at ESPN.

you just knew Patrick Kane would screw up yet again. He sure has wicked athletic ability but is obviously as dumb as a bag of nails.

John Toews must be impressed!  >:(

This ain't going to work out good for Patrick Kane I can guarantee that.

He'll get whatever he deserves
I LOSHT MY MEMBER IN AN UNFORTUNATE SHMELTING ACCSHIDENT!

An NHL uniform is a sacred thing and it's an honor to wear one. Putting corporate sponsors on the front would tarnish that. Don't do it

I agree completely. Keep the ads on the boards, the jumbotron, seats, etc. but off the players.

Players are already walking billboards, I don't see what difference putting them on the jersey makes.

Can you see plastering car company logos on stickers on the fronts of their helmets?  Great look.


On another front,

Evander Kane is fraught with first world problems..

There are already logos on the fronts of every players helmet.

Representing the brand of the helmet and the team they represent.

Seeing a helmet with a Ford logo and a hockey jersey with McDonalds on it would look stupid, IMO. The European/IIHF jerseys look like garbage with all those ads on them.

The players are still plastered with advertisements on every other piece of equipment they're paid to use, I'm not sure what makes Ford or McDonalds any worse than Nike/Reebok/Adidas/CCM/etc... Some could argue the latter are far worse than the former.

We're also posting on the board of a team who has advertisements on their jerseys. They are barely noticeable. I bet if you pulled aside random fans after a Bomber game and asked them what companies were featured on each teams jersey they wouldn't be able to even tell you.
