Huh. Dundon making some waves again with some of his remarks. Says so long as he's there the team will never draft defense in the first round. Now...whether that means he'll never draft a defenseman or if he just means he won't allow the team to draft two-way or defensive-minded players (which I would then agree with) I'm not sure.

Also...this.

Word is the Habs are wearing their white sweaters at home tonight at the request of visiting Carolina. The Hurricanes try to wear their reds whenever possible. Word is Carolina owner Tom Dundon not a big fan of their whites

absodamnloutely!!!


I miss being able to take a quick look at sports highlights and knowing where they are are playing. But reality is coloured uni's sell better and fans want to where them to games so its a money issue.

The league claims it was a cost-cutting measure because the rise of third jerseys was prompting other teams to have to lug around extras on road trips. I'd rather see whites at home (the Avs IMO have a better white jersey than they do a colored one) but I can see why they made the change.

AHL interestingly has no set rule when it comes to what a team wears on the road vs. home. Some have suggested teams go with color vs. color, though there could be some hurdles to clear with color blind players like Tyson Jost. I'd think it would be super-easy with a team like the Preds who use gold jerseys. If any team should ditch their whites, it's them.

I would kinda like that as you see teams like the Dallas Cowboys wear their whites all the time, apparently they HATE wearing their blues and so teams (like their arch rivals, the Washington Racist-Names) don their whites at home to force them to wear a color they don't want. I would TOTALLY do that with the Canes.
