• WHAT IF: NHL TEAM WERE SOCCER TEAMS •
As a Brazilian hockey and soccer fan who likes soccer jerseys and loves to see jersey concepts for hockey I couldn't help but to wonder how they would look like and since I didn't find something like that I created one for each team! Image
Disclaimers: soccer jerseys usually have a sponsor and since we don't have that in NHL I simply used the helmet sponsors (for those cool guys that don't have one like Avs and Flyers I used the one from arena naming rights)

Teams are in abbreviation order!

Ok let's go!
1 - Anaheim Ducks
#FlyTogether @AnaheimDucks @DucksBRA

It's pretty simple but I think it looks fine, didn't want to mess something Image

Being a #Canucks fan does not mean putting your head in the sand. It means you want the team to do well and ultimately win a Cup. There are many factors in “doing well”. Hopefully you have an owner with deep pockets. The Aquilinis have not held back.
@ThomasDrance @SatiarShah
Then you want serious ownership that hires good people and supports them. Francesco started out by hiring a very innovative GM in Gillis who clearly was all about treating players well so they had an environment to be the best version of themselves.
@passittobulis @risingaction
Almost won a Cup. Damn, almost! Imagine the difference if that had happened. But it didn’t. And that’s where things took a seemingly irrevocable turn. As soon as there was struggle, Gillis’ solution was not acceptable to FA, and the interference began. @SadClubCommish

Maybe this Canucks malaise IS pertly a Covid hangover. We don’t know exactly how the team Covid outbreak started last year, that got almost all players, and their families, sick. @ThomasDrance @risingaction @SatiarShah @DhaliwalSports
Something obviously to do with Gaudette, despite denials that’s why they suddenly shipped him out. Whether he was well liked or not in the room, it’s no doubt some were his buddies and had to take sides in the aftermath.
Then the whole thing of Benning not having the players’ back on the return to play schedule. Plus, like the rest of the world, there’s probably division about vaccination, so despite them all saying the right things, the Hamonic situation is likely still divisive.

OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

Gerry Cheevers and his iconic mask. The first to have markings on it. #NHLBruins
3/many

I considered doing a thread just on Michel Dion's mask.

Weekly 5v5 Team Charts Thread (March 1st):
Expected Goals For vs Against (5v5) - March 1

The #GoHabsGo are still the class of the league when it comes to scoring chance share at 5v5. The #Canucks are crazy and high-event. The #GoStars and #LGRW are playing low-event defensive hockey. Image
Goals For and Against (5v5) - March 1

The #LetsGoBuffalo simply cannot score. The #GoSensGo simply can't get a save. The #GoBolts are having a great time though! Image

I can confirm the NHL has moved on from Vancouver as a hub city for now. They are exploring other options. There is still a chance Vancouver could come back in play if the league doesn't get what they want from Edmonton or Toronto. #bcpoli #canucks
The big hold up as reported by Sportsnet yesterday is the issue of what happens if a player or staff member gets sick while in the hub quarantine. We are hoping to get more clarity on this today from Dr. Henry. #bcpoli
The other issue is whether players and staff can be part of the same hub quarantine. The NHL is also interested in Ontario's policy where someone who tests positive and is asymptomatic can still go to work. This would not be the case in BC. #bcpoli #canucks

My son and I are eating barbecue and arguing about greatest goalies in each NHL team's history. Some teams (Buffalo, Edmonton, NJ) are open and shut cases. Others are tough. Care to settle it, Twitter?
Let's start with #NYR
Moving on to Chicago.
How about Florida? I am with @strombone1, my kid is vehement about Beezer.

Como estamos a las puertas de la nueva temporada de la NHL y el verano se ha hecho muuuuuy largo, que mejor que arrancar motores comentando un poco a cada una de las 31 franquícias de la liga.

Va, va! Que ya empieza esto!

ANAHEIM DUCKS

Con un año normal de lesiones y contando con un goalie del calibre de Gibson, los Ducks deberían volver a ser mucho mejor equipo. Dar minutos y roles importantes a jóvenes como Comtois, Terry y Steel, sería una excelente noticia para su futuro.

#LetsGoDucks
Atención a: Ondrej Kase

Tiene un historial de lesiones preocupante pero siempre es un jugador que destaca. Anaheim necesitará de su talento goleador para salir del pozo.
