    I wish the Sabres had just used their original striping, going blue-yellow-blue on both the sleeves and the hem. What they used has no historical precedence and just seems off. That being said, the use of royal blue is a revelation that navy and silver can't be vanquished soon enough.

    Yes, the colours nearly match Winnipeg and the uniforms are as cliched as it gets with their diagonal text, clip-art shoulder patches and tired northwestern striping. If Houston were to get an expansion franchise, they'd be better suited going the Vegas route and creating something new. Vegas knocked it out of the park and it'd be great to see that originality continued in a brand new identity.

    Aeros would be perfectly acceptable if we didn't already have the Jets. They would need something a little more unique.

    I'm sorry but that looks more like something the Predators would use so in other words; not good. Just bring back the previous sock design and they're back to having the best uniforms in the league.
  5. Well that just isn't true. My reasons for defending the Av's inaugural look were two-fold; firstly because I thought it looked good and secondly because of the talent, winning seasons and two championships associated with it. I also didn't think the Navy alternate you like represented those winning years as it took more cues from the team the New Jersey Devils used to be. The fact that they beat that team for one of their championships made it seem even more inappropriate. This point I can't argue. For whatever reason, the fan-base has taken to the heritage look and that's more important than my visual taste. I'll have to live with it but it will never look better than any of the pre-edge, roman-themed uniforms to my eyes.
  6. Every other logo illustrates their team's namesake in a creative, visually appealing manner. Or in Boston's case, furthers the civic connection in an interesting and dynamic way. The =O= is just a letter on two stripes and nothing more. Nothing about it says "Senator" or even "Ottawa" and it looks laughably out of place here. Unlike the logo below.
  7. Maybe the majority of Ottawa fans are impressed with the "O," arguable point. But on these boards it appears just as many people (if not more) prefer the updated 2D-Centurion.
  8. I'll never be able to un-see that
  9. Doesn't change the fact that they both look like complete

    My point was that this trend of sacrificing interesting aesthetics for no other reason than to hop on the "Old Tyme Hockey" bandwagon needs to die. The Senators push towards the =O= is a perfect example. It's a travesty for them to push towards that bland logo when they have the logo Admiral posted in their arsenal. Looks like an "O" to me. Put it on two chest stripes and you have a top 5 look that honors the collective history of Ottawa hockey.

    Why stop there? Maybe they could all forgo helmets, use heavy wool sweaters with turtle-neck collars and have the players hand-stitch the O's on their uniforms themselves.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    Well, they were an NHL team from 1917 to 1934 and didn't use the "O" until 1929. Essentially the "O" was used as a crest for a whopping 4 seasons. Maybe it is preferred by the fan-base but how anyone can say this jersey... ...is aesthetically better than the one below is beyond my comprehension.
  13. NHL 2017-18

    How is it preposterous? The current team has used a centurion for 25+ plus years, which is longer than the original team was even around for, and they're throwing their history away to use a double stroked, Times-New-Roman "O" for no other reason than to siphon the success of a team that hasn't been around in over 80 years. Seems like admission of failure to me.
  14. NHL 2017-18

    I agree but they could have done something really great. The updated, 2D-centurion on a vintage-white-less heritage template would honor the entire history of Ottawa hockey and allow the =O= logo to do what works; serve as a shoulder patch.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    Why are so many people clamoring for a full-time heritage look then? The recent promotion of the =O= just comes off as a pathetic attempt to siphon the success of the silver-seven or worse; an admission that current incarnation of the Senators won't ever win a championship.
