I've always felt that having stripes on the teams hockey pants added an extra 'something' to the uniform... I don't understand why more and more teams move away from this. Recently I've noticed that the Ducks no longer have their striped pants (i'm not a ducks fan, so this might have been more recent that just this year). I know they are chaing uniforms next season, so maybe thats why they arn't doing it this year, but thats only a thought, and who's to say if they will return. Either I'm alone of the feeling that striped hockey pants just look way better.. or I don't know what. Is it because teams are getting cheaper? (As I assume striped pants are more expensive) Who knows. Anyone else share this feeling?
