Why do you care which teams have laces on their jerseys? Also, when you say you picked the "entire thing" sometimes, what do you mean? You picked the winner of all 15 series correctly? Really?
Yeah but I used to do keeper/fantasy leagues from 90's...Watched playoffs as long as can remember as a kid prior to that too... I had to do scores in a few leagues... Doing all those box scores, looking stuff up on-line or finding the newspapers which often had errors in them... I will usually look at the goalies first... Is team able to win w/ what they got in net or have a backup who can win some games, series, championship if things don't go well... Team most people expect to win probably isn't going to win... Certain years its a lot easier to pick depending on who plays when... When they used to like have the reseeding its hard to not pick 100% in a way... Either going to be all right or pretty much wrong... Now its a bit easier way its locked in to pick decently... Like I should have went w/ Blues winning cup then I would have been 100% basically... I picked at times who I wanted to win or should win instead of who will actually win... If just do straight talent it tends to not pan out... Injuries are another factor, money players who produce in playoffs... Home ice advantage, who is good on road/bad at home/road, certain teams match up badly or well depending... Splits from doing fantasy would see certain players score heavily vs. teams or struggle on others... Justin Williams Mr Game 7 helped to pick say Kings... In 2012 I felt they were team of destiny, even thought would win in 2014 but was a lot harder...
Laces are stupid, they look like an untied boot or something... Mental illness wont let have laces since its a risk of hanging or whatever... So then limits where can wear them or if visit such a place... Only original 6 teams I think should ever have laces on uniform... I hate the untied stupid laces the most... Then the other laces where its just the dumb laces but not hanging... Its like a stupid hoodie, its like wrestling will make t-shirts that don't look like its for wrestling... I felt kinda weird or so wearing my Sabu t-shirt when got stuff signed at mall... Something like RVD w/ the 420 dragon I can wear anywhere without anybody looking oddly... Its pretty cool but nobody would know its a wrestling t-shirt... Sabu says something like Suicidal, Homicidal, Genocidal so its kinda tough to were casual or not stand out as a wrestling t-shirt
. Islanders dropped for changing uniform/laces off my list pretty far... There was time it was Kings/Islanders/Sharks... Then it was Kings/Sharks/Islanders for them moving out of NY or other factors... I grew up w/ Sports Channel West/East Coast so saw all the metro teams/California ones... My favorite players got traded to Kings so they became my favorite team... I was big fan of Kelly Hrudey, Palffy, others who got traded there... They started the Silver/Black uniforms which were really cool to help sorta sway... I don't think I'd ever buy a jersey w/ laces, I thought of getting a #8 on sale but they mostly laces crap jerseys... I only would buy/wear the current black jersey of Sharks but I want teal
I know there kids who would wear their shoes untied... Or knotted laces... Any I know who have laces on jersey don't tie them either... So its all this untied stupid look. I watch The Hockey Guy for jerseys, yet I hate or disdain any that have laces... I'm not even happy about Jets weird jersey they got like jets written like some little league team crap... I loved the old original Jets jerseys, which is rare for me to like a white jersey... Islanders are probably one team I always liked their white but sorta hated their blue ones etc
. Only current jersey I like at all from Islanders is the black no laces NY, they wore I think for stadium or outside game... I hate their laces or the orange they use for some odd reason
. I contacted Knights ahead of time to plead for them to omit any laces from uniforms
. I did all I could, Knights started as my 2nd favorite team behind Kings for listening enough to ban laces
. I told them they could always do a 3rd jersey if they wanted to do laces/sell them... I like their All Star Jersey w/ the faded black a lot too... A few teams I liked that jersey, Vegas probably is my favorite or top 2-3 in that all star style though
