No More Tucked Jerseys? What The Hell?

It's the end of an era in the NHL. A rule has been passed, stating all players must wear coinciding uniforms. No player can have any gear showing except skates, gloves and helmets. That means, no more tucking of the jersey like many players do, including Ryan Smyth. 

This rule is one of the dumbest rules the NHL has ever enforced. If your jersey is tucked, you get an automatic two minute minor for delay of game. 

One such penalty was handed out tonight to the Columbus Blue Jackets player, Alexander Semin. 


I know that the tucked jersey didn't make Gretzky who he was, but it helped make him unique. Since when is it a crime to be a little different? 

Dumb rule NHL... dumb rule.
