Does the NHL still make these companies pay a sponsorship fee to have their name shown on the ice?
I remember back to when Hasek was in Buffalo and a local goalie equipment manufacturer was experimenting with pads for him. the company, CSS, was forced to blank out their name on the pads because they couldn't afford the rediculous money the NHL demanded.
Anyway that is another possibility when you see the namebrand blanked out. It could be a smaller company getting screwed by the NHL and the larger companies.
