    Well, would you look at that. A D logo Ducks jersey that's actually halfway decent!

    Almost, until you see the homepage where they're advertising Stamkos jerseys on a football field backdrop.
  3. My frustrations with the Anaheim Ducks branding are well-documented on these boards, and in retrospect my temper has got the better of me on occasion. Since they started selling Mighty Ducks logo gear, much of it being stuff like hats and t-shirts that were impossible for a foreign fan like me to get back in the day - I've mainly been buying that. A throwback or even a new sweater featuring the classic logo is an instant buy for me, but it helps that those uniforms have actually been good.

    That and some shoulder patches would be a remarkable improvement. But honestly, I'd rather they did away with the swooshes and use a horizontal hemstripe.

    NHL Adidas/Fanatics jerseys- what to get?

    My jersey arrived. It fits just fine, especially over a hoodie. But with me being about 5'5" it's much longer than I anticipated.

    True. But it always looked bland in action anyway, so this warmup version isn't really a huge downgrade. I'm not all that keen on the current uniforms either, but seeing the wordmark jersey again has made me appreciate them more. Yes, I know, they won the Cup in this jersey. But it still sucks despite what they achieved, and after years of watching them in that boring uniform I'd be quite happy if they're never brought back again.

    The Ducks are breaking out the wordmark duds for warmups. Still weird to think of these as a 'throwback' and I don't exactly miss them, but here we are. No metallic texture for the gold stripes, looks like it's just been printed on.

    Thanks, @Sodboy13. Yeah, usually I'm Small or Medium for replica jerseys but Large size for shirts. I ended up going with the 52.

    The NHL International Shop finally got the Adidas Ducks thirds in - just in time for Black Friday, of course. £116.25, down from the regular price of £155. Either way is much better than dealing with the expenses of importing this thing. The size charts are throwing me off and there doesn't seem to be a solid comparison between these and the Reebok replicas, but I'm going to play it safe and go a size up as people are recommending.

    Los Angeles Kings Rebrand

    The logo is a much-needed simplification of the googly-eyed, abstract mess that is their current crown. If I would recommend one change to make: I think adding a silver outline to match the shoulder patch would really helping it pop against the purple background of the uniform. Also, if anything's going to sell me on the Kings in purple and gold it's the addition of white as you've done here. The uniforms look fantastic.

    NHL - identity refresh concepts

    Nice logo update for the Avs. But it seems strange to have their trademark burgundy reduced to a logo-only colour on their primary uniforms. Not much to comment on for the Sabres but it's a good take on their classic look. Are there laces on either of the blue jerseys? Never liked the purple and gold Kings look all that much, but you've fixed everything I hate about their crown logo so I have to give you props for that. You've pretty much nailed the Lightning uniforms, but something about the logo seems off. Maybe making the bolt thicker would help it pop more?

    It's almost like they tried reimagining the storm jersey, but the end result just comes off incredibly bland. This is going to look terrible in action.

    Kind of a mixed bag here but at least they're not 2014 Stadium Series levels of 'futuristic'. Not that I'll ever see them anyway as EA doesn't like making NHL games for Nintendo systems. @DrAwesomeberry beat me to it as I'm typing this, but yeah, Detroit's is basically the same as the 2009 Winter Classic uniform. It comes off as a bit lazy, but if I were a Wings fan comparing it to the rest, I'd be pretty happy with it. Montreal's is nice, and I could see something like this being used as an alternate if, for some reason, they ever felt the need to introduce one. I agree with @Still MIGHTY's sentiment that the Leafs and Rangers are straight up 90's thirds. Interesting way of basing the designs around their logos, but for some reason I dislike the Rangers one more. Chicago, well, I guess it makes sense to include the other colours from the logo. This one apparently took inspiration from "the vibrant energy of Chicago" but it reminds me more of an inkjet printer gone wrong. Boston's may well be the most creative of the bunch, but it's also gone a bit overboard with the torso stripes. Not sure if I like it or not.
