This one comes from the 700 level who did great work on this story:

It's no secret that Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is a fan of the 'universe.'

He's such a fan of universes, galaxies and the like that his new goalie mask pays homage to the film series Star Wars.

But there's a catch.

On the mask, the Yoda character is featured with a 'red' light saber where in the films it has always been the color 'green.' In fact, the Jedi Master himself is colored red. In the film, the color red is predominantly known to be associated with the Sith characters who are the antagonists of the film.

Lucasfilms Ltd. got word of the mask and personally called the Flyers equipment manager and demanded that the colors be changed to the correct ones or else the mask would not be able to be worn at all.

When the film's creator and multi billionaire tells you to do something, you do it.
