The jerseys themselves look good but I do think the whole white-on-white thing could be a problem.

Agreed. With blue pantsskates and gloves, they'd look awesome.

friendly amendment

I would unamend that

That's all wonderful, but Putin.

Sure, he's dumb as a bag of hammers. But skills is skills.

This is more truthfulness.

I generally would advise against the unitard look where possible.

The stealth ‘advantage’ is also a disadvantage. Good luck hitting your stretch passes.

Not necessary.  We have JVR to pot all 25 from 1 foot out. Which, I might add, will end up making him, and not Alexander the Great, the winner of the Rocket this year.

I think at this point, when adjusting for era and everything, it's pretty fair to say Ovechkin's already the best goal scorer in history with the theoretical exception of Bobby Hull and the usual caveat re: Lemieux.

What he's doing this season at the age of 32 too is just nuts. 1.11 points per game would be his highest since the lockout-shortened season, and his highest in a full season since 09/10. He'll likely win his 7th Rocket trophy this season, which would mean he'll have it won it 5 of the past 6 seasons. If he scores 50 goals this season (he's currently on pace for 49.9) it'll be the 8th time he's done it in his career. Since he's entered the league the 50-goal mark has only been broken 13 other times, and nobody other than him has done it more than twice.

Using Hockey Reference's adjusted numbers:

Gretzky: 758 goals in 1487 games, 5 goal scoring titles
Lemieux: 616 goals in 915 games, 3 goal scoring titles
Bossy: 461 goals in 752 games, 2 goal scoring titles
Richard: 653 goals in 978 games, 5 goal scoring titles

Ovechkin: 690 goals in 985 games, 6 goal scoring titles(7th on the way)


So it's not even that Ovechkin is at the top. It's that he's at the top by a pretty considerable distance. That 65 goal season may very well have been the best goal scoring year of all time.

That's pretty amazing. I'm actually surprised that Richard is so high.

Gordie Howe would be 925 in 1767, 5 scoring titles.
Bobby Hull would be 644 in 1063, 7 scoring titles.

Brett Hull's 86 goals in a season still comes in at 78 when adjusted, and Ovechkin's 65 comes in at 72.  Of course Ovechkin did it when he was 22 so there is that.

Sorry. Your amendment has failed, and is therefore rejected.

This is Montreal's alternate jersey in 09.

Can you imagine this without the solid pants to break it up?

Hurts my eyes, either way. Those things were awful.
