A primarily black jersey without the circle and white background behind the logo would look nice. With the whole "Jersey's team" theme, maybe just the J in stead of the N as well would make for something different.




something like this actually, but a little more black in the mix. Get rid of the white piping, and make the red a lot smaller. Make the shoulders all black too.


Also, it might be stupid, or impossible, but maybe add the flame design from Marty's helmet at the bottom of the jersey, and on the ribs. Probably would need permission from Marty's artist though.

In Topic: A Demographics Poll!: Devils or Rangers

I feel you there, i live in philly. which brings up a question that you might be able to shed light on.

seeing that you live around all three fan bases, would you say that one is worse than the other? I really only experience flyer fans, but its just hard for me to picture Ranger fans being worse than them

I'm closer friends with Flyer fans than any rangers fans. In my opinion, I'm more tolerant of Flyer fans. The Ranger fans I know are smug.

Mercer County here. Its a tough call. Its considered central, but I'd say it's 60% Philly, 30% Rags, 10% Devils.

In Topic: RAY SHERO = NEW GM. Coach decision is Shero's.

Shero pulled off one of my most favorite trades in the last five, maybe ten years. Trading Neal and Niskanen for Goligoski was a heist. Niskanen for Goligoski makes it a wash with the slightest edge for Pittsburgh, and getting Neal back in the process made it an absolute steal. They were able to get solid production from Niskanen, and got a goal scorer they needed in Neal. 


As for playoff appearances, they made back-to-back finals appearances in 08 and 09, winning one.


They exited in the second round of 2010 when they faced a hot Halak and Cammalleri with Montreal, who also ousted the top seeded Caps. Might've experienced some burnout themselves with cup runs in previous seasons. 


2011 I give him a huge pass. The Pens were probably destined for a cup that year. Crosby was firing on all cylinders that season, at least until the Winter Classic game when Steckel ran into him and triggered concussion problems. Malkin went down soon after, but the still Pens almost defeated Tampa in the first round without their two superstars. 


2012, the Flyers got into Pittsburgh's head and Fleury was a disaster. Probably helped us out, if anything. Pittsburgh seemed to outmatch us in the regular season that year, and we were able to walkover Philly in the semi-finals.


2013, Shero was poised to make them contend when he acquired Jokinen, Morrow and Iggy. They made it to the conference finals and were shutdown by Boston.


2014, second round exit to the Rangers.


2015, Shero and Bylsma gone, Pens almost miss playoffs and get eliminated in the first five games of the first round. Give them a pass due to beat-up defense, but still not a great first season for Rutherford.


If anything I feel Bylsma was the one to go for not coaching well enough, and mix it with some terribad playoff goaltending performances from MAF. Shero made moves to help strengthen the roster and surround his superstars with adequate talent. In the cap era, he did a good job finding players like Kunitz and Dupuis, who've complemented Crosby to this day. 


I wouldn't rest the drafting solely on his shoulders. They were able to turn most of there 1sts into NHLers, despite drafting in the later part of the first round recently.

Just slap the C on Schneider, Stevens if he our coach next year, or whoever we draft with our first this year. Just slap the C on the draftees jersey as he puts it on at the podium. A silent way of saying we expect big things
