    The National Hockey League and adidas today unveiled the new ADIZERO Authentic NHL jerseys and uniforms for all 31 NHL teams, including the San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks), which will make their on-ice debut with the 2017-18 season. At the forefront of innovation, design and craftsmanship, the new ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey takes the hockey uniform system and hockey jersey silhouette to the next level by redefining fit, feel and lightweight construction. *Lighter - Featuring new cresting materials and construction technology, the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey reduces crest weight by up to 46%, while a single layer perforated numbering system reduces number weight by up to 60%, in order to deliver a new jersey that is up to 19% lighter when compared to the current NHL Jersey. *Cooler - The ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey features adidas Clima® technology in each of the jersey fabrics to deliver breathability and enhanced performance. Combining moisture management technology and a streamlined silhouette to maximize air flow circulation with materials that are up to 133% more permeable than fabrics currently used on ice allows athletes to be cooler. *Stronger - Constructed for durability, the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey fabrics are up to 27% stronger in burst testing and up to 72% tougher in abrasion testing

    I'll save my complete thoughts for when we get a clearer picture. The collars/alternate logos could make or break some of these. I still stand by New Jersey being the worst downgrade of the bunch though. Just awful.

    That Devils redo looks horrid. It's like the cheap Canadian Tire version of the actual uniforms.

    Also, can we all just appreciate the Central Division for a moment? I mean look at this! They've got: Red, yellow, kelly green, forest green, royal blue, navy blue, and maroon. Basically all the colors of the rainbow and without any black (which is a cop-out uniform color, save for Boston and I guess Pittsburgh. Just for comparison: Atlantic - Four red, two royal blue, one navy, one black. Metropolitan - Three red, two royal blue, one navy, one orange, one black. Pacific - Two black, one gray, one royal blue, one brick red, one orange, one teal, one red. (Admittedly a pretty diverse color scheme, but altogether too dark.)

    As a Wild fan and a designer, I wanted to take the night to sleep on it. First takes can often be too reactionary. Whist I have my complaints (the stripe not going around the whole sweater, no hemline, etc.) This is their best dark jersey yet, and to that matter, they had perfection with the (now current) whites, so why change? (Minnesota sports have long had teams with different home and away templates) The Wild have always had a problem with their logo being so green, on a green background. I think it calls for a bigger keyline then you'd functionally want to use. Thats why they've trapped it in roundels or used a script. A center stripe is a damn clever way to solve this issue. I know a lot of you love the inaugural uniforms, but my unpopular opinion is that they were our second worst. (the reds they just retired with no hem stripe were awful.) The gold was too prominent, the logo got lost on the greens. The whites were okay, but the numbers were silly and hard to read. This is a new franchise, in a state that really likes to pat itself on its back for their hockey tradition. The vintage stuff sells very well here. Expect it moving forward.

    Also if you rewind back to the EDGE takeover of 2007 the league has improved it's overall color balance and vibrancy sooooo much. Flyers were in black. Wild were in red. Stars were in black. Predators were in navy. oilers were in navy. There weren't ANY orange, green, or yellow teams. We now have those plus a charcoal grey team. So much better. Now for the Kings to go back to purple...

    "Oh no". "I thought this died". Nope! We're back, under the same, more experienced management. Along with 11 other members of the board, the SCAA is moving in a new, improved direction. I picked them based on who showed the most interest in SCAA, as well as who I thought were self sufficient enough to deal with their own logos and unis. It's nothing personal if you participated in the old SCAA but were not picked for this one. Here is the premise... Setup Myself and 11 other members created fictional college identities. Some were used from the original SCAA thread, while others were created brand new. As well as sets of logos and backstories created for each college, we made football uniforms. From here, two conferences were created with 6 members in each. The Pacific Conference to the West, and the Continental Conference back East. Using these conferences, we made an eight game schedule for each team (5 conference game and 3 out of conference games). How it Works Every Saturday, 6 uniform matchups will be posted. These are the "games" in each week of the season. As well as posting the uniforms in this thread, a poll will be setup weekly to vote on the best matchups. Once these votes are counted, both teams in the first place matchup will be awarded 300 points, second place matchup teams will receive 200 points, and third place with 100 points. Additionally, each individual vote will awards 50 points to each team. At the end of eight weeks, the winner of the Pacific and Continental conferences, as well as the next two leading scorers from either conference, will participate in a 4 team playoff tournament. After these two matchups, the two winning teams will go head to head and ideally the best overall uniform should win! How are you involved? If only the members from each team voted, it could very well devolve into a Pirates of the Caribbean situation, with each person voting for their own teams. This is why your involvement can be so important, the more votes the better. I decided to start very small for a reason, and expansion is likely to be small and deliberate for that same reason. Now that that's all out of the way, here are your members and colleges of SCAA 2017! From the Pacific Conference on the left, going top to bottom... Alaska-Juneau State University Kodiaks (Juneau, AK) @~Bear Lake Tahoe Tech University Sierra Guardians (Carson City, NV) @Pulv! Mililani University Mano (Mililani, HI) @ZionEagle Portland Tech University Pioneers (Portland, OR) @Bruins Rainier Tacoma University Thunder (Tacoma, WA) @Spanna65 University of Santa Monica Aztecas (Santa Monica, CA) @sleuthpanther And from the Continental Conference to the East... Mercy Valley University Titans (Convington, KY) @poiper2 Quad City College Lions (Davenport, IA) @Steelman Robert Gould Shaw University Colonels (Boston, MA) @XenonDesigns University of Southern Indiana Cardinals (Bloomington, IN) @gswansea University of the Iron Legion (Hibbing, MN) @Chapeeko Waxahachie State University Buffaloes (Waxahachie, TX) @ColeJ Spoilers were added for some teams, will be continued and added to!

    To understand the Devils fans reaction to the uniform change you have understand a lot of the off ice changes that have gone on the last few years. When Lou Lamoriello ran the team for more than a generation he ran it in a very traditional fashion much like the Canadiens or Boston Celtics. Part of that was to build traditions. Some of that was silly like no facial hair rules and no high numbers unless you were a star. On the otherside when it came to the uniforms they kept a traditional approach. One a few teams to never have a permanent third jersey. In fact when it came to the Reebok edge changes a decade ago they were basically the only non-original 6 team to keep their uniform design. The fans embraced this. In fact after moving to Newark the team built a really fun fan environment circa 2011 through 2013. After that season the team was sold. While everyone admits on the ice changes needed to be made, the new ownership group has implemented a lot of off ice changes that have alienated much the fan base. Much of the in-game arena presentiation was changed to try to prevent fans from doing similar chants that you heard in Nashville this year and make it more "family friendly." They threatened season ticket holders for putting extra tickets on stubhub. They have also forced out many long time people associated with the organization. And more... seemingly any and everything associated with the team prior to the ownership change has been done away with. Instead of leaning on the traditions to keep people connected to the team during an on ice downturn, they have seemingly done everything to drive people away. now to tonight and the uniforms. The ownership has taken the most traditional and guarded aspect of the team (their look from when they won 3 cups and 5 conference championships) and changed it to what looks like a cheap knockoff version. It not only is a backlash against the design, but also ownership.

    The Newark Bulldogs can go jump in a lake. And after 3 cups, 5 finals and 35 years in jersey why are we adding elements from two short and embarrassing eras that did not even take place in jersey? Do we need that? Who cares? Who was ever clammoring for relics from our really dark ages? And green with the cup years on the collar. You can't make this up.

    Next up is the last current nhl team for this series. The Vegas Golden Knights. I decided to not use their current logo as it really doesn't suit the 90s. Instead I used a logo that I created last year for a Vegas concept and refurbished it a bit. The design uses a circle pattern similar to the logo. The dark jersey uses two shades of gold fro the logo also. The last three concepts in this series will be teams that played in the 90s but are now defunct.

    I applaud them for making the fabric 133% more permeable. A lesser outfitter would have settled for 115%!

    I find it hilarious that Ottawa are clinging to a design that was intended to fit an outdated retailer's template. If you told me ten years ago when the EDGE jerseys were released that when adidas or whoever takes over, Ottawa would be wearing the same jerseys, I'd laugh.

    I'll be honest, I think getting rid of the double outline for the numbers and letters for the Bruins is the wrong move. The numbers/letters look incredibly out of place. Looks like they also might have changed the font.

    That's just a terribly executed fake based off of @Max Sang's concept that he posted on Behance. The image is not at all indicative of the style of templates that Nike will use for the NBA jerseys, and it's entirely inaccurate with regards to the Blazers new uniforms that are set to be unveiled in late summer.
