I would find it really difficult to make a Winter Classic jersey for a team that never really changed theirs throughout history.
Exactly. Philly's jerseys have had very little change over the years, so finding a different look in the past is going to be hard to do. I'm at least glad that the rumors that it was going to be based off the old Philadelphia Quakers turned out to be incorrect...
I'm telling you though, the NHL needs to let them wear Cooperalls one last time...
They signed a 3 year contract. I'm sure they don't want to lose the revenue from the deal, as well as having to pay legal fees against the inevitable breach of contract lawsuit that would arise from Amway.
I don't like the sponsorship any more than anyone else, but unfortunately this is a done deal.
if jagr is signing then my guess is lids will resign
"Resign" or "re-sign"? Pretty key difference there.
As far as Jagr. No thanks, says I. While he is usually solid holding onto the puck (usually), he never was as strong a two-way player as our system needs. If he's literally the only option we have, I suppose I would take him. But I wouldn't be too happy about it.
