    The Sharks first Edge jerseys were so much better than what they wear now. If your going to use orange trim, embrace it. Having the orange piping on just one side of the sleeve-stripe defies logic and taste. It's like they couldn't decide on removing orange all-together and went with a lazy compromise. There were really only three things that needed to happen to this set. The removal of the front numbers, the removal of the shoulder yokes and the implementation of the logo below as a shoulder patch.

    I think it will grace the front of a new, black alternate with the old 'Fin' logo on the shoulders. Should be pretty sharp.

    The only solution to 'the black equipment' issue that was any good was what McCarthy proposed a while back; replacing all instances of black and blue with navy. I still don't think that needs to happen since they've used this configuration for so long and achieved great success in it. It's not so much that the re-colours posted above look bad, they just look so different to what were accustomed to that it's jarring. I've said it many times and I'll say it again, the biggest issue with this set is the lack of a blue stripe on the road jersey.

    This is a great set that happens to have a few elements that haven't aged well. If you lost the mesh-panels, replaced the nameplates & numbers with the bloc-treatment they use now and went with the standalone M, as a shoulder patch, you'd have a more balanced and consistent look. I like what the Wild have now but this set balances their colour scheme in a much more effective way.

    I think they look great, especially with the thickened hem-stripes. No they're not better than the previous N-Star set but for the debut season of Dallas-based team you could do much worse. A black version with the updated green makes too much sense for an alternate.
  6. NHL 2017-18

    This hybrid jersey makes me think an Adizero version is in the works for a future alternate. The numbers are from the 1993/94 set, the thickened hem-stripes are from the season after and the shade of green appears to be current. It's not quite light enough to be Kelly Green or dark enough to be Forest. Hard to tell though.
  7. Return of the Whale Imminent

    Could the updated Stick n' Rink look better inverted? Maybe. Do I have a problem with how it looks on the blue jersey now? Not really. That logo doesn't violate the number one rule of a blue, green and white scheme: the blue and green must never touch. The old Whalers logo on the other hand does. The blue outline bleeds into the green background to the point where it might as well not be there. The version on the new merchandise is a huge improvement.
  8. Return of the Whale Imminent

    The logo treatment on the top left, and the majority of the t-shirts, is exactly what should have been on their green uniforms. Not the all white logo with the pointless blue outline seen right. They should go the fauxback route and put that on a green uniform similar to the 1991/92 set and bring out 4 times a year. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.
  9. Eskimo isn't a slur, Redskin is. Are you saying the Chicago Blackhawks need to change their logo?
  10. Not ones that use Native American imagery in a tastefully manner like the Chicago Blackhawks. The Eskimo's logo is two E's in a circle and not offensive in the slightest. Once again, so much for the 'Slippery Slope Fallacy.' Next the Canucks use of Haida Art will be deemed offensive.
  11. Logos that really need to be updated.

    Agreed. This look was dated the second it was unveiled and the resemblance to an obese person in a red shirt makes it look like a joke.
  12. So much for the "slippery slope fallacy." Maybe if I google it again . All joking aside though, you can think Chief Wahoo is a racist caricature (and a bad logo aesthetically), be glad that it's gone and still be worried about it having an effect on other logos and names. It doesn't have to be one or the other.

    I'm not saying the full bodied Johnny Canuck couldn't work, but on that particular picture it looks awful. Maybe it's the crest material, the small size, awkward placement, cheap looking premier template or all four but that really does look like a screen-print for a beer-league team.
  14. NHL 2017-18

    I hardly think saying the logo doesn't belong in the same category of detailed, aggressive, 90's logos constitutes as a personal attack. But I guess it came off that way so I will apologize for that. This is interesting because if the Canucks could improve the Orca as much the Seahawks improved their logo in 2002, I'd definitely be on board. Replacing the Orca/Script with the V/Johnny Canuck logo and leaving everything else untouched is one of the few proposed changes I could live with. You wouldn't lose the great aspects of the current look and It would solve the colour inconsistency of the logo.

    Honestly, every time there's a logo you don't like you play the "overly detailed, aggressive, 90's" card and it's getting beyond tiresome. The logo isn't even that detailed or aggressive. If the whale looks angry it's a reflection of the Haida-Art style not on a desire to jump on some "late 90's Xtreme" bandwagon. I don't agree but this is a fair criticism. Just curious though, what do you think the Canucks should do to make their identity perfect?
