I have no idea what is happening under the arms with the stripe pattern. It just randomly starts from the armpit and heads south to the forearm. Is it there to track sweat from the armpit? Is the NHL trying to score some sort of deodorant sponsorship? STUPID.
The "All-Star" patch or whatever on the shoulder is beyond dumb. There is no NHL team that wears anything like this jersey, so what's the point of plastering "All-Star" on the left shoulder? STUPID.
What is with the color scheme? Isn't this game being played in Columbus? Why aren't we using Columbus colors for the jerseys? Is anything sacred anymore? STUPID.
Enough with the freaking chroming of the chest logos! STUPID.
I hate to say it, but the NHL is making its once-marquee event a complete disaster to the point that the only relevance it has on the sporting world is how much the NHL gets made fun of for their uniform choice. The NHL All-Star Game was falling into irrelevant status long before these new uniform designs came out, but these uniforms are doing the opposite of having people talk about them. Normally, you want positive reactions. These uniforms have gotten nothing but negative reviews.
And you can count me as one of those who think they are STUPID.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
