The Slug Still Haunts... For Now

According to a news post at WIVB TV's website, HSBC Arena crews are busy painting the ice in preparation for the upcoming season. But sadly, the slug still hangs from the score board.

On the plus side, they've added the 40th anniversary logo to center ice, and is it me or are they painting it in the original royal blue? And dig those stars on the red line!

But come on Quinn. All this effort to rebrand the team, and you still have that thing on the score board? Typical.

Give it time! Maybe Frank Cravotta is working on replacing that part of the scoreboard.

I hope so. With all this retro-branding they've been doing, the slug seems way out of place now.

That is unfortunate ... and hopefully temporary. Of course, it will be a while before there aren't a lot of slug-wearing fans in the stands. Heck, there are still some goat heads out there.
