OFB is not the only outlet unhappy with the unipatch. From ESPN.com’s Uni Watch by Paul Lukas:
The Capitals will be wearing this throwback design for the Winter Classic game on New Year’s Day. Great design, but here’s something that’s difficult to see in the photos: The jersey logo is actually one giant patch, not individually applied letters — lame. Uni Watch isn’t in love with the red helmets either (the originals were white). Good move putting the Winter Classic patch on the shoulder, though — would’ve been way too cluttered if they’d put it on the chest.
