That's actually a good question and one I never thought of.

When the game was invented, I'm sure they wanted something to contrast with the ice (white). Plus rubber is naturally black so why make an effort to change something like that?
But with it becoming a spectator and TV sport, maybe they should look into changing the color. Obviously whatever color they use, they'd have to ensure the teams playing did not have a similarly colored jersy

As fast as it comes, not sure a color change would matter much.

As far as jerseys, Pens wear black, others wear black, jerseys the same color as the puck is common now.

When I was a kid and played street hockey, we used to use a bright orange puck. Hollow plastic. I think the intent was that the asphalt is black, so. . .

But some kid in our neighborhood played for peabody and weighed like 250-75 lbs and his slapshot was fierce. We switched to a whiffle ball for a while to slow it down.

What I don't get is why they don't have sensors in the ice, pipes, and puck, to determine goals or offsides.

agree on sensors..as for puck u could even have 2 tone puck..black and bright orange. certainly would benefit tv.. anyone rember the stupid graphics fox used with tails and such to follow puck on tv? horrible. lol

Didn't give him much of a chance? Did they expect a miracle?

Buffalo's roster was good enough for a WC spot, but the players don't like him (sound familiar?)

He's a bad coach who benefited from being at the right place with 2 generational players
