Morning Free Association: New Thirds Revealed (Maybe)

Many NHL teams are changing their look this season. Some are adding an alternate or third jersey. Others are looking to the past for inspiration. And some like Vegas have a third jersey design for the very first time. When you’re a 4 year-old team, you don’t really have a previous sweater to choose from.

Late last month, Dallas revealed their new alternate design that is based upon  the lights of the Dallas skyline. It also happens to pair nicely with Ben Bishop’s mask.

Both the Senators and Flames are going old school on their home and away uniforms.

So, what are the Bruins doing? They’re going for new threads based on old designs for their alternate home jerseys. This is curious. Last season they made it a point to debut a new third jersey after abandoning the excellent Winter Classic design of 2018. Now for a third season in a row, they’re debuting a new style.

Last week the tease was that it would be a new gold design, which created a mixed reaction. There was even talk of the return of the Pooh Bear. This sent some fans to a bad place, remembering a time when the Bruins lost more often than they won. Others hoped that the “Hey There” Bear or “Meth Bear” would be the main logo. As it turns out, he is part of the design as a shoulder patch.

Pete Blackburn tweeted the leaked design.

While this is not official yet, it’s probably coincidence that the Bruins retweeted a tweet from former goalie Bernie Parent in which he shares a picture his first outing with the team. The jersey is very similar excluding the shoulder yoke. To tell you the truth, I’d like it better with the black yoke.

Ragrdless, I’m sure the Bruins will be releasing it soon because the Jacobs’ have to make that sweet sweet cash in time for the Christmas season.

Why do the Bruins change the 3rd alternate jersey so often?

Somewhere in the Bruins organization, there must be someone who is just WAY too excited about fashion shows and now has the reins of power over these decisions.

Morning all. Major Biden is declared the winner and then I finally get the long-awaited GH Halloween package. Coincidence? I think not!

Hi folks.

I like the Jersey. At least I think I do – maybe it’s a bit too pyjama-ish. Need to see it on a player.

So after our conversation about batteries on Saturday- yesterday the TV remote didn’t work. Opened up the back and one of the batteries was all swollen up and oozing paste. Hasn’t happened to me for years. What’re the chances?!

Are any of these last four states ever going to finish counting? Not that it really matters. Biden is coming. Vaccine is coming. 2021 is shaping up nicely!

I’ve always hated the meth bear. It makes me twitch a little every time I see it.
“Perspective doesn’t work that way!”
“What kind of bear is this even supposed to be?”
“Why is it tiger-striped if it’s supposed to be a bear?”

Meth bear is pretty weird. Meth will do that
