    North Bay's looks less like a remembrance day jersey and more like a sesquicentennial sweater.

    I think its because Ottawa had a decent uniform/identity at their debut and has only gone progressively downhill since then. People just want a change and the =O= is an easy thing to gravitate to.

    Seahawks look great, I would just suggest flipping the silver and blue on the road striping to be a bit more consistent in regards to the palate.

    I think black is just as valid as Australia or NZ colour schemes. The absolute last colour Canada should use in a tertiary capacity is blue. There are enough countries using those three colours. And any justification for using a colour not on the flag can be used for black as well. Not to mention Canada has been using black prominently in other sports as well like baseball, football, rugby and Olympic uniforms. As far as I'm concerned it's a de facto national colour. And I like it because at the end of the day it looks good visually and gives Canada a more unique sports aesthetic. I think it's important to delineate between "national colours" and "the colours of your national sports teams."

    I don't think this ones that bizarre. It was a different era and baseball players have become somewhat infamous as tobacco chewers

    I'm aware of the historical context for Italy and Netherlands wearing their respective colours. For a different example, I could use Australia or New Zealand, both using colours on their sports uniforms not found on their flags. Black has been a part of Canadian sports teams for awhile. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_colours_of_Canada#Sport Slovenia is wearing blue and green, yet their flag is red and blue. Either this is a tragedy of the highest calibre, or country's shouldn't have to religiously adhere to the colours on their flag. There is zero problem with a country using colours not on their flags as part of their national identity and branding. If anything it allows countries to forge a stronger identity since so many uniforms will look generic if they're just copying the same boring flag colours nearly every nation uses.

    Blacks been on Canadian sports uniforms forever. Just because it's not on the flag doesn't make it not a national colour. Look at Italy's blue and the Netherlands orange.

    To be honest I think the road is pretty bad as well.

    Why haven't the Sharks jumped on this revolutionary innovation?

    If your nipples look anything close to that shoulder patch I'd advise you to see a doctor immediately.

    I second the white gloves being weird. I'm not a fan of teams having two sets of gloves in the first place.

    It was closer to six or seven years on and off over an intermittent span. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/display_affiliations_child.php?tmi=8755 I agree whole-heartedly with you about the blue and green, and I think they have arguably the best colour scheme in sports. I was simply suggesting the reason they wore blue and red in the fashion they did during their WHL days likely was influenced by the fact they were affiliated with the rangers.

    The Avs right now are at the best they've ever looked. The silver border is vastly superior to the black and white ones they had before

    Yes, this isn't the KHL, our letters read left-to-right.
