When you've got an extra 20-30-40 jerseys to make up for preseason games/scrimmages it's easier to use the flat nameplates than the usual individually stitched letters on the regular jerseys.

That explains the nameplates, not necessarily the choice of a different font. Not that I've been paying particular attention but I haven't noticed other teams using different fonts for their preseason jerseys.

I don't really pay attention to other jerseys of other teams, but some of the newer teams tend to use less "flair" than their normal jerseys during the season due to cutting costs.

After the recent number of slams regarding my choice to use a different font (Book Antiqua) than the default (Verdana)...I have to admit the thought did cross my mind as well in addition to the expectation of the nameplate question.


You should change your font -- just for the preseason.

That'd make some sense if eva wasn't a member of the site for five years.

Most if not all other teams don't stitch the names directly on the jerseys, so it's easy just to use the same nameplates all year round.

I find it amusing that some Red Wings fans still haven't grasped this concept yet.

As rage said, perhaps Shoe is a new Red Wings fan, hasn't visited these boards before this preseason or never saw a preseason Wings game. Doesn't make him/her any more or less of a fan.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I don't remember this from last year, and before that I wasn't a member.

To be honest, I looked at the pic, went into my Malts file, didn't find one of his back, went into my Val file, checked out his back and then came back to find that if one doesn't know that they use a different font in the preseason that one is not an avid fan.

Please consider that some of us don't get the games televised nor are we close enough to civilization to attend games, and may not know these things.

Aside from which, I'm a chick. If a guy has his back to me, I'm not checking out his font.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

I know it just gets annoying to have re-explain things every year i.e. Why do people at the Joe throw Octopi on the ice, where did that originate from, why do the wings have different fonts on their jersey this year? Is it normal to have a third nipple? These things just get repetitive and annoying.

Speaking of fonts typefaces, does anybody know what the typeface is for the names during regular season? The typeface for the numbers? And finally the typeface for the Red Wings script?

Once again, god forbid someone "doesn't know as much" about hockey as you. If you're annoyed with having to explain these things to noobs then don't bother responding in the thread. Not everyone has the hockey knowledge that people that have been around the game their whole lives have. It's not their fault, nor should they feel they can't post a question.

TBH, what I'm annoyed with is all the people that start threads by saying, "I'm sure I'm going to get reamed out for this" or "please don't go off on me for this question". It's sad that some people fear posting a simplistic question because some "hockey geniuses" around here may criticize them for it.

If someone repeats something, its up to the mod staff to merge threads. If they haven't caught it yet, perhaps the member base here would be kind enough to answer their question and post the duplicate thread (if there was one).

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Some one had to say it, and i completely agree with you. I know a ton about hockey but when i have questions most of the time i don't ask them because people flame you for asking them.
