Black getting a bad wrap

Lance Phillips, Edmonton

This is to all the people who complain about there being "too much black" in the NHL jersey palette: If you look at every team's home and third jerseys (53 in total), there are 14 black, 21 red, and 13 blue (14 if you include San Jose's teal).

That means that less than a third are black, and almost half are red. Where are the people whining about too much red?

Black looks good, that's why teams use it.

Quit whining about things that don't matter and enjoy the hockey.
