TIMEOUT - Should the home team in NHL wear white or dark jerseys?
In this week's installment of 30 Second Timeout we asked the following question: In 2003, the NHL changed the rules and now the home team wears their dark color jerseys at home? Should the home team wear their dark or white jerseys?

Stoney Point - September 13, 2014 - In this week's installment of 30 Second Timeout we asked the following question: In 2003, the NHL changed the rules and now the home team wears their dark color jerseys at home? Should the home team wear their dark or white jerseys?

Dean Belanger - I think the home teams should have a choice of what they want to wear. I get why the move to dark was made so they could show off the teams third jerseys to the home crowd but a variety would be nice. It was great when they made the switch because it was something new. Now the effect has worn off. Also, both teams could wear dark if no clash exists. I'd love to see the Jets vs the Habs in Blue vs Red. Same with Oilers vs the Flames. (ok, no one wants to watch that game, but you get my point)

Tim Cornett - Since I started following hockey back in the late 60s, I like the idea of dark jerseys at home and light on the road. Some of my younger colleagues may disagree, but it’s what I grew up with, and it’s how I remember my idols.

Shaun Maddex - At this point the dark jerseys have become a staple to wear at home in my eyes. It helps that I almost always like the dark jerseys more than I do the white jerseys, so I say keep it going with dark at home and white on the road. However, in the playoffs organizations need to better coordinate fan towel colours to match the home team jersey colour...it can't be that hard right? .

Chris Ostander - White jerseys at home. It was a dumb marketing ploy the get fans to buy more dark jerseys and it's about time they switched back.

Chris Savard - As a kid, I grew up always watching the home team in white and the road team in the dark jerseys. Maybe I am set in my ways and resistant to change, but I prefer the home team in white. Currently, if you are a season ticket holder in Toronto, every game sees a team in blue and a team in white. Where prior to 2003 there was a team and white and then varying other colours – red, orange, black, blue, green, etc. I would welcome a change in the NHL rule.

Ryan Womeldorf - For the first few years, I was against it but as time has gone on, it doesn't really matter. At home, at least we get to see the third jerseys on home ice instead of in front of other team's crowds.
