The Predators (remember them from our Western Conference days?) are trying to drum up interest and sell tickets. So, they have, well heck you can see it for yourselves. No need to tell you what it looks like. I just don't think it'll have a desired effect of getting people excited about Predator hockey.

Just for the two day event, not for games.

My hubby says it's the color of the belly of a catfish.  As he loves to fish, I'll take his word for it.  It is appropriate, I suppose, since a) They throw catfish on the ice down there, and b) One is a scum-sucking bottom feeder, and the other is a fish.

Puck Daddy described it as if the Predators had let a herd of misbehaving dogs take up residence on the ice.

Predators colors are yellow and blue. So the people higher up are stewing on this and they decide the "yellow ice" was the better decision here? 

 

You would think logic would point to making it blue, but maybe that's just me.

Maybe blue would make it too hard to see the other lines?

Are they going to call the jr. Preds the "Whiz Kids" now? That is hideous. I do agree the K-Wings McDonalds unis were even worse.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Yeah, that would kill the whole "blue line".

 

Which makes me wonder-  If yellow and blue make green, and yellow and red make orange, do we now have green and orange lines?  And what colour is the crease?

Because they're trying something different and trying to grow their fanbase?

 

Some of the elitist attitudes around here are funny.

Because it looks like they're running pipes from the urinals to the hoses to flood the rink. If you need gimmicks like this to promote the team, you need a new marketing department.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
