The hockey world doesn't like nostalgia, I guess.
The whole reason we have it is for nostalgia, my player-coach practices wearing an old blue jofa Gretzky lid with Oilers logo and #99 on it

What makes the red lid look more ridiculous is that it doesn't fit anyone, and we don't let them adjust it

We've also found a cage to put on it because the under 18 players who practice with us were getting away with falling over for far too long
