Flyers may be inconsistent - see Carter Hart at Lake Tahoe - but the Sabres are a trainwreck. Number 1 goalie out, expected top offensive players either injured or benched.
So, go Gritty, I guess.

Flames/Senators: Tkachuk brothers stirring things up with each other is the only reason I could care about this one.

Caps/Devils: New Jersey better get great goaltending.

I must say, I do like the Sabres' reverse/retro uniforms.

The Caps reeled out a Dreadnought Lead in less than 6 minutes.  Sorry, Recoil Therapy, but both goal scorers' numbers are from the pre-dreadnought era, so I'm going with USS Washington:

I think Muzzin and Thornton are back, and maybe Campbell starting in goal.

Normally with hockey on its Molson but they don't have it so it's Labatt Blue. And here they serve it super cold which is the only way to drink it.

The Sabres are like 2-7 when the other team scores first. I have high hopes for this game...

And the Caps protect their lead by adding a cruiser to it, 3-0 D.C.  Giving the Caps a 3-on-1 really didn't work out too well for the Devils.

There was an article on Newsweek's site yesterday saying that people in my line of work (libraries) should be a higher priority for the vaccine. While I'm willing to wait (I'm younger, moderately healthy, live by myself, and can work from home for what I do), I know too many that are older or have something that could use the vaccine now.

Devils further erode the Caps' lead, 3-2 Washington.  Couple players end up in the D.C. net at a couple points, goalie can't find his stick after they extract themselves, and the Devils put the puck past him.

Tempted to stop watching myself, but with a Matthews-less Toronto vs Gasholes game later, this might be the only good game.

I shouldn't be surprised, but there was an egregious bit of puffery on the Devils' broadcast during the first period. They put up this graphic and Daneyko talked up each line as if it was evidence the Devils' power play is good, which it very much is not.

And I decided to investigate that first point. Hey, the Devils are above average at getting off a shot when they win a faceoff on the power play. How often do they win the faceoff?
Fark user imageView Full Size


Oh.

So of course a few minutes later, the Devils win a power play faceoff, take a shot attempt from the slot, and recover it off the back boards to score in six seconds.

Did they even try with the Red Wings' Reverse Retros?  Did they come to the realization that they couldn't improve on one of the league's classic uniforms and just give up?

What's "S"?  Superior?

Kings, Wild, Devils, Bruins & Penguins each need to move down a row.  Otherwise pretty good ranking.

I 'really' need to get one of those horribly obnoxious Ducks jerseys while they're available

Take out the Lightning, Stars & any mentioned up above & I'd like to have any from the top three rows

I mean I'm okay with the Vegas one. It's the logo of the old Vegas IHL team. Not like they've got a ton of history to look back on. Unless they made a logo out of the Sutton Hoo helmet or something.

Correction, it's a mishmash of elements from a bunch of prior Vegas teams.

Having not seen some of these on the ice yet, I can only go by what I've seen in publicity photos or on www.nhluniforms.com. But here are my general opinions.

Leafs and Whalers are interesting, but too hard too see the names & numbers.

Teams that have done a good job of getting both the "retro" and the "reverse" elements correct. That is, draw on a past uniform logo, striping pattern, etc. and also swap a couple of colors around. See Devils, Bruins, Kings and Coyotes. Sabres are OK too, but it might be more eye-catching on a dark uniform. Blues did it, but it's still damn ugly.

Other teams have not done much considering they have lots of uniform styles in their past: looking at you, Stars, Lightning and Panthers.

Some teams get the "reverse" aspect, but not the "retro": the Habs get a bit of a pass here because the uniform elements have been basically unchanged since the formation of the NHL in 1917. I like this one, surprisingly. Senators just reversed the red/black colors on their current home unis. They could have got really creative and gone back to the original Senators of the 1920's and the barber-pole look.

Others get the "retro" part OK: Rangers, Islanders. Ducks, but mostly changed striping pattern a bit (both NY teams) or put the logo on a white jersey instead of a one-time dark one (Ducks).

The one that strikes me as most creative is the Minnesota Wild. They took the color scheme from a different franchise that used to play there and worked their own logo into it. I like it.

Blackhawks and Red Wings: I'm not sure what these will look like. Wings don't exactly have a lot to work with; two colors and no logo changes for decades.

I do like the Whalers and Nordique-themed throwbacks too. Good on them for remembering their past.

I probably missed a few teams.

How long are they going to be available for anyway?  I just looked at the Ducks' NHL shop and it appears they only have smalls left.  Is this the kind of thing where they'll eventually restock or when they're gone they're gone?
