    Ugh. I think it was said somewhere that all teams are getting alternates, so maybe it'll return next season.
  2. NHL 2017-18

    The addition of black really worked well for that North Stars set. If anything, the white shoulder yoke was where it went a bit overboard. Agreed.
  3. NHL 2017-18

    The Leafs jersey is nice. Interesting that they've gone with the white version of the logo instead of the blue one.
  4. NHL 2017-18

    I think it would make a neat basis for an alternate uniform. But I also think the current set is good enough to not need an alternate.

    I imagine we'll see proper Throwback Nights return following this first season of Adizero.
  6. Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    A part of me isn't too keen on Seals. It's one thing for a team to relocate and take their name with them or modify it to fit their new locale, but an expansion team sharing their name with an old team that played in a different city would be a bit weird. On the other hand, it's not as if the original Seals are ever coming back. Seattle Seals or Seattle Sea Lions works well enough. Neither would be my preffered choice but I'd be fine with it I guess.

    A subtle green addition could work, like adding some detail to the eye. Anything more than that would be too much. I don't mind the orca, but losing the script would improve their uniforms tremendously. Pick one or the other, not both.

    The All Star jerseys are now up on the NHL shop. The Fanatics versions look way better without the Addydass side panels.

    You might've been before, but I can't unsee it now -- They almost had a solid if generic uniform here. The big red hemstripe is silly, but not as stupid as "Caps". Why not use that W logo on the front?
  10. Evolving Uniform Opinions

    When the Ducks unveiled their third-now-home in 2010, I was instantly in love. It made better use of the colour scheme than the regular uniforms, used an actual logo instead of the wordmark, and best of all the Mighty Ducks logo made its glorious return as a shoulder patch. And I couldn't wait until this was made into the new home jersey and a new set was based around it. Now? I can't wait for them to bin these. Viewed from the front or back it looks relatively inoffensive if a bit boring without any hemstripes, but then you turn it around to be greeted by obnoxious sidepanels. The white version is even worse and further shows how much of a mess the template is. Then there's the addition of laces, which are usually something I'd like, but are one thing too many on this Ducks set. Admitedly my newfound dislike may have spawned from my saltiness at the recent orange thirds being retired. Or maybe that uniform was the eye opener I needed. It got everything right that the Ducks have got wrong since they rebranded. But of course they don't take the opportunity that was staring them in the face and stick with the terrible mess of a uniform for the Adidas switcheroo. Nor did they ever wear that in the playoffs despite the whole #PaintItOrange thing. This f***ing team. Argh.
  11. NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    London Knights: We may or may not take issue with a pro team named the Knights, but if you ask us nicely - Foley: What's that? We can't be just the Knights? Oh well! I guess we'll have to name ourselves the Golden Knights instead! London Knights: Wait, we haven't even - Foley: GOLDEN KNIGHTS!
  12. NHL 2017-18

    I believe it was something to do with the London Knights owning that trademark in Canada, complicating things for Vegas. Though I wonder how much truth there is to that, or if it was merely an excuse to pursue the Army-esque Adjective Knights which got them in legal trouble anyway.

    They missed one.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    There have been far worse designs, but I can't get past the Addydass stripes, both on principle and for being one thing too many. The use of those paired with the neon colours make these feel like a weird hybrid of an All-Star uniform and generic sportswear.
