Advertising doesn't belong on professional uniforms. There's enough on the ice and tv.
Doesn't matter what the ad is or for.

Canadian teams are in the Scotiabank NHL North Division.
West coast teams are in the Honda NHL West Division.
Centeral teams are in the Discover NHL Central Division.

Now all we need is some Pearl Vision ads on the referees and we'll be all set. :roll:

that's annoying but at least its not in your face, I much rather them name the silly divisions rather than put ads all over the uniforms.

Just curious what the final auction bid will be in 15 years for an autographed game worn PPG Crosby helmet?

Collectors are curious...

I am all for the league and teams making as much money as they can. It won’t change how hard or who I root for. They are still the penguins no matter what ad is on their uniform or helmet. Times are changing

Watching the scrimmage, can’t even tell there are helmet decals during normal play and even on close ups I don’t care.

Haha, came here to say exactly the opposite. Obviously couldn't see them during play but during the close ups they looked absolutely brutal imo. I hope they come off next year but I know there's no chance of that happening now that the financial cat is out of the bag.

I only watched a little bit of the scrimmage, and I never once noticed them. I wasn't looking for them, but, in the 10-20 minutes of the scrimmage that I watched, I never saw them once. And, I do think you are correct blackarts that they are probably here to stay. Some fans may not like them and find them distracting, but, I'm sure that's the only group that doesn't like them. Doesn't matter to management, players, etc, and really, for the players, if it means an increase in HRR, they are going to be all for it because in the end that means higher cap and higher salaries.

Yeah. I agree that they are most likely here to stay because everyone makes more money off of it. I can see the next location for advertising potentially being right below the numbers on the back of the jersey or around the stitching of the fight strap near the waist line, which also may not be toooo distracting. What I really don't want to see is the NHL let the players go out and get individual sponsors for themselves and the jerseys start to look like old pro bowling shirts and NASCAR with logos and brand names all over the place.
