    This will undoubtedly cause a massive backlash, but I personally don't care. I never notice helmet ads the same as I never notice any others. I'm not going to notice these either, so I'm not going to bother feigning outrage, especially over something that's necessary to prevent a seven-year flat cap.

    I would hope it never happens, but I understand why it probably will and that said +1 to the overall theme of Phil's post.

    Hate to see the jersey ads; cheapens the pro look imo. Find better ways to sell advertisement.

    No lol. They're being opportunistic and cash grabbing now, using the pandemic as an excuse.

    Pretty pathetic really. Especially the division name sponsorship.

    Is that Hasek?

    And if you want to show how bad the ads look, you can pick any helmet in the NHL. They're all fucking horrible.

    I thought it was based on the helmet but looked it up and seems like he didn't play in the Swiss league during the 04-05 lockout.
    Who's the dude next to Heatley? I thought it looked like Pavol Demitra but turns out he didn't play in the Swiss league either.

    Lol you barely notice most of them. The Rangers Chase one in particular blends right in.

    Never going to happen. This is slippery slope sensationalism at it's best. "They're doing something I don't like, and fear, so I'm immediately going to jump to the worst possible outcome and presume this will happen."

    Helmet ads, for the most part, have been unnoticeable. Jersey/shoulder ads will be, too. The league isn't suddenly going to resemble some European D-league that has to sell uniform advertising to keep the lights on in their building.

    Every league that's done this, be it practice jerseys or game-worn ones, has done so with minimal encroachment. Use the league's actaul peers to compare to, not their worst faux-similes.

    No I live in a quiet suburb of Raleigh and work as a software engineer for a tech company complaining about poor ice time rationing for most of the kids on a Rangers forum from my Android phone. And I find the helmet ad to be nearly unnoticeable.
