07:26 AM ET 09.25 | Still, it seems far-fetched as a correlation. There is a conspiracy theory that the "jersey tuck" crackdown is simply setting the table for ads on sweaters. There's no way Oswald acted alone, but I generally hate conspiracies. Anyway, I did look into it and was told "not imminent" aside from what already exists with the current sponsor, Reebok. Another good point: if the NHL was to sell these ads, they probably wouldn't be located along the bottom, which is where tucking occurs. ... That's not to say the idea hasn't been discussed. At a sales conference a couple of years ago, Brian Burke (then Toronto's GM) said the Maple Leafs were dead-set against the idea because of the iconic nature of their logo and jersey. A one-time Canadiens employee said the same thing in a different conversation.

no room for individuality in the NHL...even the Habs' triple low 5 was banned..i despise the Habs but that was unique and it was fun for the players.......the NHL wants robots that all look and act the same.

Dwarfus wants to be the NFL....

The NHL should put mini-cams on players' helmets when they're on the shoot-out.....I think that's an excellent idea...see what the players see.

What is the logic (assuming there is some) behind the tuck rule. Is there a safety concern or does the Buttgoblin just want them to look spiffy?

Being serious for a moment (I hate that), I think you're entirely right. Pretty much like the NFL and their Soviet style enforcement of uniform rules.
