10 cent off coupon
another 10 cent off coupon!
Other than the extra 10 cent coupon, this was a pretty lackluster pack. Robitaille's a damn good player, and so are Turgeon and Janney, but overall kinda blah. Not even a goalie in here. Since it's late on a Sunday night, I'm going to make things easy on myself and show off the awesome defunct team logos out of the pack instead. I'll start off with two from teams currently in the NHL:
Buffalo Sabres Swords Logo
Much much better than the slug. My guess is the team will one day move to Helena, Montana and rename themselves the Buffaloes.
New Jersey Devils Christmas Edition Logo
Anybody remember the old red and green sweaters? Looks more like Santa than Satan. They won all their cups after changing to red & black which goes to show that evil always wins.
Ex-NHL teams, AKA why in the world should there be hockey teams actually playing in Canada? Stupid NHL.
Minnesota North Stars
Ok, not technically in Canada, but close enough. The North Stars ditched the north and moved to Dallas while Minnesota watered down the NHL even further with a new team named after the most wretched animated film ever. The logo is nifty and scientific, as the N points to what is presumably Polaris.
Seriously, what the hell is a Nordique? Northerners? Really? Pretty much every person in Canada is a Northerner to everyone except polar bears. I have never been able to explain the symbolism in this logo, and I've got an English degree, so I'm practically a professional bullshitter. Well, there's an N, I think, and a hockey stick and somehow a puck balanced perfectly on the edge and it's supposed to look like... um, half a Zamboni.. or maybe a fat guy with no head or arms playing hockey... er, oh hell, I don't know. This logo was definitely made in the '70s and you know what kind of stuff they smoked back then.
Now this is a kick ass logo! Lotsa kinetic energy, and a hockey stick and a little jet going WHOOSH! There's a great history of jets in Winnipeg including a famous mishap, so it's a topical name too. I still can't believe they took this team away from people who could appreciate it and moved them to the desert. Weak. Move a team back up there, NHL! You can have the Thrashers if you want, no one'll miss em.
Since you read this far, you get 10cents off your next imaginary purchase from Pro Set. Don't spend that money all in one place!
