    Well played. I'm actually diappointed that wasn't the real thing, and was about to share my Unpopular Opinion that I like it better than the regular uniform. Oh well It better be.

    A couple of pages of Pooh Bear jersey posts and people being fed up with the Blackhawks. That was pretty much it. With the Pens and Flyers, we just had this same matchup earlier this year, and they've both been in their fair share of outdoor games too. But if you want the discussion then here's a starting point: The Flyers should bring back the cooperalls and I'm fed up with the Penguins

    Maybe because we're a long way off from seeing any uniforms for that.

    With Brian Burke for the ceremonial puck drop.

    Looks good. The collar's weird, though the silly half-and-half effect won't be noticeable in action anyway. Also, I wonder what "CLIMALITE" is.

    That wasn't an issue in the WHA Mind you, it would be funny in a way if the Coyotes end up becoming the new Aeros.

    Ducks are wearing Kariya Mighty Ducks and Selanne Third jerseys for the pregame warmup tonight. I could be mistaken but, interestingly, the Selanne Thirds appear to be reproduced using a CCM style cut, despite this uniform being from the Edge era, and being almost the same as what they wear today.

    In a league that largely plays its games indoors.
  9. Looks like a safe bet at this point.

    More than anything I'm surprised to see the Canadiens wearing something new and different. Le-Bleu-Blanc-Rouge-Shiruba is the better of the two. The Sens jersey isn't bad, but it would look better with a hemstripe. I'm not sure how I feel about the Silver O. I prefer the black heritage sweater, but red vs white is a preferable matchup for an event like this.

    So what about their use of the same name and colours as the old team? But seriously, I'm in two minds about the O. Objectively speaking: no, a Times New Roman letter isn't really the most captivating or creative logo, and a brand new team coming up with this today would probably be laughed at. However there is historical precedence to its usage, and honestly I kinda dig the look for evoking that Ye Olde Tyme Iced Hockey feel, which is especially appropriate for a city with that hockey history attached to it, a team specifically named for that historical significance, and the upcoming outdoor game celebrating that history. Conceptually the logo is on par with the Canadiens, even if the execution is lacking by comparison. That said, I'm not opposed to them keeping the Centurion branding around. If it were me calling the shots, they'd be using that unused modern version of the 2D Sen head as their primary mark on that heritage uniform. But at this point if the fans are going nuts over a Times New Roman letter, we may as well let 'em have it.

    I keep flip-flopping on whether I like Nashville's home uniform. A bit plain compared to its predecessor, but it's serviceable. With the roads, the shoulder yokes are a bit excessive, but that's the only thing I don't like. I loved the Ducks jersey when it was unveiled as a third, for being more colourful and interesting than the wordmark uniforms, and for bringing a much-beloved logo back as a shoulder patch. But I've grown to dislike them more since they made a regular set out of it, mainly because of those big stupid side panels which are flat out embarrassing. And while I love laces on hockey uniforms, no matter how useless a feature they've become, they really look out of place on a more modern design like this.

    Interesting. With the push for a more Colorado-focused identity and a now-retired third jersey being an homage to the Rockies, the RAF isn't exactly something I'd think of when looking at the logo. But to each their own. Maybe because shoulder patches aren't specifically designed to be looked at straight on. And as others have pointed out, letter-based logos generally don't get flipped around. Sure it looks a bit weird sometimes, but a backwards letter for Ↄolorado would be weirder.
  14. NHL 2017-18

    Plenty of teams have shoulder logos pointing in opposite directions. I don't see what the issue is.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    I for one can't wait for the Ducks to finally leave behind their generic teenage emo phase. I won't get my hopes up for the third to return as the new primary, but at the very least I'm hoping for something that looks good.
