Bring Back the Rats!

Brandon Holmes is casting a vote for the New Jersey Devils to bring back the Albany River Rats as their AHL affiliate. The River Rats partnered with the Devils from 1993 to 2006 before joining the Carolina Hurricanes. Then they moved to Charlotte, N.C. in 2010 and Albany got a new team named, disappointingly, the Devils.

Midwest Winter

This Outdoor Saturday takes us to St. Louis for Gary Beatman's take on the next Winter Classic in 2017. Simple. Classic. Pretty much perfect.

Freaky Kings

John Elbertson is going with gold and purple for the Kings — and basically nothing else. The lack of white in the sweaters really showcases the Burger King's teeth. Does he whiten? Either way, freaky. Happy Friday.

Coming to the Cats

We're getting a South Florida double-header a week before the Panthers unveil their newly redesigned logos and uniforms. First up is what Brian Brideau thinks the club will wear based on the reports we've seen over the past six months.

And as a bonus, here's a cool design from Ryan Christensen — inspired by the panther head from the team's 2009 third jersey. Which do you prefer?
