Why not allow the NHL teams to advertise on their jerseys?

5 million per season for a chest logo
3 million per season for a back logo below the numbers
1 million for a right shoulder logo
1 million for a left shoulder logo

What would this hurt?

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Jerseys are too rich of a tradition in hockey. There are also waaaay too many ads as it is. I picture goalie helmets turning into the hood of a nascar car.

Why not? Because I don't think anyone really wants the Wings to look like this...



Open the door to advertismenta on jerseys, and I guarantee you it's only a matter of time before it gets to be like that.

This isn't NASCAR, the KHL, or some other junior league that has to turn their players into skating billboards just to scrape by.

So if the Wings would have had a 66 million dollar cap this year instead of a 56 million dollar one, you would have chosen to keep the ads OFF the jersey?

A team should be able to give the league their jersey advertising revenue, up to a certain amount, in exchange for more cap space.

I'm confused at how you think allowing ads on jerseys would change the cap whatsoever.

It's a proposition. What is so hard to understand?

A team gives the NHL up to X million dollars of revenue generated from advertising on its jersey. The league, in return, grants the team additional cap space. The NHL can redistribute the money to struggling franchises (revenue sharing), and teams that have drafted/acquired well don't have to suffer from forced parity.

If the cap hit suddenly raised 10M players would also ask more as organizations could pay more and it would cause an inflation in the player market.

I love how you molded a suggestion from using one of LGW's most hated things to get rid of one of LGW's most hated things.

I hope you are not just realizing this. Some folks call moronic controversy fair play for debate. But, to allow myself to be drawn in to this less than intelligent (imho) thread....

The NHL doesn't give a s*** about revenue sharing, and the NHL gives even less of a s*** about the Wings and other rich teams getting a bigger payroll.

OTOH, maybe we'll be finally able to get Raj Narwhal under the cap. His second contract is going to be a killer.

I care! The reason the Wings had to let go of Hossa and Hudler is because teams like Phoenix and Florida can't pay their bills. I don't like the other end of the spectrum (New York Yankees) where one team generates all the revenue and can pay as much as they want to get the best players in every position, but I'm against the end of the spectrum we're at now where all the teams have to be even so the NHL doesn't have a few franchises fold.

Ok guys. Agree or disagree all you want, but at least add to the discussion in a constructive manner if you're going to post in the thread.

What Jake is proposing isn't exactly a new or unheard of concept. Remember when Brodeur, Hasek, and others were suggesting ads on goalie jerseys?

http://www.thestar.c.../article/304287

Mlive even had a story/blog about this in the offseason, citing a story by USA Today in it.
