The Devils, Kings, Canucks, Wild, and Jets all look awesome.

The Stars are the worst of this bunch by a mile.

A few look identical to older jerseys to me.

I liked the Sabres, Flames, Wild, Kings, Devils, and Capitals. The Vegas one is growing on me.

Best ones: Carolina, Colorado, Edmonton, Minnesota, LA.

Others fails besides ANA, AZ and DAL: BUF (stupid 2000 look + current colors = terrible combination), CGY (hideous 3rd logo and why black ?), DET (practice jersey and the grey doesn't make any sense), STL (red as the main color when you are called the Blues...).

I'm neutral on stars...the best by far is Carolina and Kings. Also really like Ducks and Yotes.

However I'm still very disappointed that the Jets don't pay tribute to the Thrashers and their incredible tenure during the Atlanta days.

If they're bouncing checks for hotel stays, that's a bad sign...

I will not settle for anything less than McDavid. You can go to jail for writing hot checks, you know.

This is a brilliant jersey for a women's team.

The NHL is staring down some ugly labor strife. The players were told their agreement to go into the bubble also covered this season, yet the owners want another bite at massive pay cuts.

This is one where you can see both sides. The players already took a pay cut and the bubble ended up being a huge hassle. None of them are interested in repeating that for even less pay. However the league can't remain solvent with no gate revenue and expenses/salaries remaining as high as they are. Especially broke owners like you-know-who. The NHL is looking at a massive deflation in both revenue and expenses, if they're able to survive at all.

Where it gets stupid is seeing some owners apparently upset because they didn’t read the agreement from six months ago. I have no sympathy for that BS. But being lazy or dumb with their sports toy doesn’t alter the fact most owners have no interest in putting money into their teams during down times.

Virus gonna virus. Doesn’t this fall under the act of god clause? Both sides are gonna have to take it to some extent on this one. The big question, will fans be in the stands?

Also, the players didn't get paid for being in the bubble. Also also, the owners want another across-the-board pay cut from the players, but then are going to want to further reduce salaries by proration for a shortened season.

Also also also, they are going to have to figure out what to do with the cap. The owners backed themselves into a corner with a hard cap because a bunch of teams are over it with no real way to reduce salaries.
