    The title is a bit deceiving, itís only below the goal line. Regardless, itís stupid

    I don't even notice the adds at center ice, I'm sure after a few games I won't notice these either.

    The circle logo is the issue. The wordmarks aren't bad. They should just have guidelines around it.

    Watching foreign games, adds are worse than you think

    It’s not like people in this industry are poor and revenue starved...

    You can ask those that are actually in the industry! LOL! And another thing, how will be able to see what it is going on the ice since the sponsors will bring "profit" to some of the more mediocre teams in the NHL. This is corporatism in sports! SMH

    As long as they don't make the soccer/NBA leap to ads on uniforms, not a big deal.

    They should just do what MSG does and put adds on the glass for the TV audience to see. The only people at live games that will see the ads are people sitting at the top of the arena.

    I f'ing hate it. Just one more slippery slope step towards advertising diarrhea a-la Euro trash uniforms all over the ice and players.

    Did I mention I f'ing hate this?

    I hope the NHL gets a fan revolt but I doubt it
