Recommended Posts

The MassMutual division has quite the ring to it.  Oh Gary.  Wonder when the euro nascar style jersey will be coming?

I would think it would be Hockey Related Revenue(HRR) which would be split 50/50 between the Owners and the players

I have no problem with it

Has anybody even complained about the ghost ads on the glass in the arenas when watching on TV?

Without fans in the stands, something must be done to pay for this.

Sadly, you are probably right.

IMO, this is worse than the helmet ads.

I'm really surprised that Pfizer wasn't gifted a sponsor exempt division.

Pretty much this, accessing these revenue streams is like an opening of Pandora's box.

it is, but I also don't see how tv revenue alone gets the players paid. We can blame the owners all we want, but the players want their $ too.

It's definitely both parties involved, no question.

Based on the logos, it's still the North division, West division, etc. Company names underneath don't look bad at all.

 

Obviously fans don't want to see ads, but between these and the helmet ads I think the NHL is going about it in the least obtrusive way possible.

Could always raise money to start a Canadian Hockey Association. I'm sure TSN would glad to get the rights. 

Trophy could be the Canada Cup?

Well it looks like we all just have to do our part and make sure we don't buy anything from these sponsors

I’m fine with the named divisions. The stickers on the helmest make me sad.

 

Gotta say I actually initially thought the Caps ”Capital One” helmet looked good and stylish. Didn’t bother me at all. Now when I scrolled through all the ones that are there - oh my...!

 

I definitely understand and get that this is needed at this time to keep the business side rolling. And if it stays for good, ok. But only on the lids please!
