    Dumb Question...

    This question is so outdated but I finally remembered to ask in in a hockey forum..

    Why did the NHL after the last lockout decide to go with the home team wearing the dark jerseys? It's been how many years now, and I still don't like it. I know back in the old days teams originally wore the dark ones at home but changed it due to jersey cleaning issues on road trips...But does anyone know why?

    Re: Dumb Question...

    I recall reading a Shoalts story where he said it was done because the dark jerseys were far out selling the white jerseys, and the league figured if fans got to see the other 29 white jerseys each year it would increase sales.

    Personally I enjoyed seeing all the differently coloured away jerseys and would like them to go back to that. Heck, I wouldn't have a poblem if they got rid of the white jerseys all together (though it could cause some problems for when the Stars play the Ducks or the Bruins play the Pens)

    The reason that the colors were switched was for Television.  Apparently, because teams were often wearing their third, colored sweater during home games, there was inconsistency.  Sometimes white meant home, sometimes it was your third sweater and the white team was away.  They wanted white to always be away and color always to be home, so when you tuned in on TV you always knew which was which.  It was also said that since fans liked the dark sweater better, they should see the home team in it.  Regardless of the reason, I'm with you, I think white should be home and fans should get to see the different colors of the visiting teams.

    I hate it.  Every game in Boston is black vs. white.

    I liked seeing the B's in white vs. Toronto blue or Detroit red or Montreal pink or NYR blue.

    I liked seeing the white at home and the opposing teams' colors. The home team could roll out the 3rd jersey on special occasions. Maybe the NHL could get all crazy and have home whites every other year?
