    I like both the orca and newer stick in rink logos, but with the blue/green color scheme the orca just doesn't fit. Even if it was as simple as swapping out the logo on the current jerseys it'd be an upgrade. Although, I would prefer a slightly more muted green. in regards to the stick in rink logo, there are plenty of teams, obviously older teams, where the logo is more symbolic or ambiguous in reference to the team names. Nordiques, Habs, Flyers. The rink has enough historical charm to work. The orca worked great with the pre-edge uniform/colors, as it was designed for.

    The most intriguing one to me is Buffalo. Looks pretty cool.

    Columbus and Florida have. Aside from Edmonton and Vegas I can't think of others of the top of my head. Certainly not as many as I would expect, which I'm thankful for.

    Those are pretty nice and classy. Not that I have any familiarity with this league or individual team histories, this has still been a great series so far.
  5. Habs'ing the NHL: Alternates (Vancouver added)

    Love it. I think having the stripes end at the logo like that gives it a small subtle touch of modern.

    Something I'm noticing is Dallas is like an outlier compared to almost all of the other jerseys. Things they've done that no one else has: 1. Used half of the back half of the collar to color black (USA did same style with their blue jersey in the WCH). For some reason no one else has done this, and a few could really benefit from it (Chicago) 2. Shoulder logo overlaps the straight cut at shoulders. Everyone else has them closer to collar and within the squared yoke. 3. They have small wedge extending yoke passed shoulder on the home. Other teams where the yoke is the same color shifts to just square (see Detroit, Buffalo, Montreal) just interesting.

    i actually really like those, except for the piping down the arms. One thing i think that could help, aside from removing said piping, would be to play with the placement of the chest stripe and logo. It'd be cleaner if you had the chest strip end at the edges of the logo so you don't have the little bits showing from the small areas of negative space of the logo.

    I wonder that say they keep the numbers as is, mainly the red for the roads, if it won't necessarily be what many think will just be repurposing the heritage jerseys. I can almost see them streamlining it a little, no stripe on back like the Wild to help the red numbers stand out. It'd be cool if they changed the O up as well

    So I've been thinking about the Sens. Could their new font be what they'll use when they supposedly do change their uniforms next year?

    The only thing with the Tampa All Star logo is it looks very Florida Panthers pre-redesign with the colors and the palm trees. Not being a resident of Tampa nor never have been there, if there's a local connection it's lost on me, aside that sun/beach/palm trees= Florida.

    most of those are solid improvements. I still don't like the overall shape. The massive pentagon makes the rest of the collar look weird like on Montreal or Chicago.
  12. Awesome look for them. Best they've ever been. Oddly though, it looked like the socks didn't fully match on the white set and had red in place of navy when compared to the jersey stripes.

    In watching the Bruins last night and seeing some more pictures, I noticed something. In some pictures where you don't see the socks and just the jerseys, with the new numbers and a quick glance they look a lot more like their 70's set, and would really benefit from gold socks with black-white-black stripes to match. That was a subtle form of consistency with the seemingly inconsistent and traditional gold sock. Now, I actually did warm up the black socks and it's an ok look in general, but it's just not what they should be wearing. After seeing better images of the road set as well, they're not as bad, but still think they were better before.

    I like it. Do they have any other images like that?

    Loving the Oilers road set. The Orange will be novel for a bit but should be blue. I like the navy. I think navy and orange is a good blend of eras and starts something new for McDavid and co. And is it just me, or do these jerseys look boxier? I guess it makes sense with the cut compared to a lot of the Edge cuts, but man. Washington especially.
