    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Sockeyes isn't a bad name. But between them, and the Sharks, and the Canucks orca...

    Penguins 3rd

    Minor tweaks, and yet big improvements to the Stadium Series version. Triangle-less penguin is still a bit awkward to look at, but I see why they did it, and it keeps this distinct enough from the regular set.

    Advertises with Adidas jersey. Only sells Fanatics version. OK.

    I kind of see where the comparison is coming from, but there's never been a Sharks jersey that's looked like that. For one thing, the diagonal stripes are unmistakably Mighty Ducks. That and every black Sharks jersey to date has had minimal amounts of teal compared to the main set - but, also, they're totally devoid of jade green

    Ducks looked mighty fine in their new thirds. I really like these now. Too bad the NHL International shop is only selling the Fanatics version.

    I like it. Easily the best Isles alternate yet, but that's not saying much.

    Now that I think about it, Gritty seems like a totally different interpretation of the whole flying concept. He's high.

    What the actual flying is that

    There's a simple solution to cleaning up the Canucks jerseys that's been staring them in the face for the last ten years. Dump the wordmark already.

    Winnipeg Jets Unveil New Alternate Uniform

    The weirdest part is, a version of the wordmark with Winnipeg does exist. Seems like a odd choice to leave it off, but I guess the aim was to keep the overall design simple. Having said that, this jersey has grown on me. I kind of want one.

    Winnipeg Jets Unveil New Alternate Uniform

    It's pleasant to look at, but a bit underwhelming. It's the sort of thing I'd go for if I was just looking to buy a generic hockey jersey.

    It's a neat idea, but it's awkwardly executed. Also, good to see the Mighty Ducks logo back on the ice in some way. One step closer to returning where it belongs

    I also prefer their white numbers ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    It's up for preorder on the NHL shop and, interestingly, the hem striping is positioned lower on the Fanatics version. Slightly improves the design by giving the logo and numbers more room to breathe. Buuuut I don't think I can get past the subliminated crest. Well played, NHL.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    The Ducks are now taking preorders from local fans only. And in the most classic OITGDNHL fashion, their Anaheim Team Store website keeps crashing.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    It's only being worn this season. Word is they're bringing back the orange third next year. ... And then that discussion can start aaaaallll over again

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    Couldn't handle the main thread being Duckjacked? Anyway, after sleeping on this thing; I like it. I appreciate what they were going for but they haven't quite nailed it. There are one too many colours and the combination of diagonal hemstripe and coloured yoke is a bit much. I feel that they should either have gone with eggplant as the body colour or, if the uniform has to be black? Ditch the eggplant stripes. I say that but I also kind of dig the subtle use of it, it looks better in some photos than it does others. I like it better after seeing Hebert wearing it, so, yeah. It's a downgrade from the orange third, and yet it's still better than the regular set. As a one year anniversary thing it's fine. I'll be getting one. Heck, I'm almost tempted to make the trek to Anaheim just to see these in a game, might be my only chance to see the old colours in action.

    Apparently this jersey will only be worn this season. I had a weird feeling that might be the case. EDIT: Orange third returning in 2019-20.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    Still kinda processing this thing. It's surreal that we're getting what is essentially a brand new Mighty Ducks jersey after all these years. It's not quite the hotchpotch I was dreading, so there's that. Gonna have to sleep on this.

    And yet, no teasers or anything beyond Icethetics' source indicating that it'll be revealed today. Still; T-minus one hour minimum.

    Wow, so it's not going to be a half-arsed pregame reveal for once.
