Longing for jerseys of yore

John Lucey, Malden, Mass.

I've been watching the Olympics lately and really enjoying them.

However, I couldn't help but feel nostalgic for the old baggy straight-bottom jerseys they used to wear in the NHL.

Anybody remember those?

It made me realize how much I hate the rounded-bottom, form-fitting ones they wear now. Nothing like a guy rushing down the ice with his sweater flapping behind him as he seeks to put the biscuit in the basket!

Ah, the good old days.
