  1. Here's what I would do. I would keep things as is for the regular season, but come playoff time I would allow each team to designate a home uniform of their choice. You wouldn't have any issues as far as equipment management goes, as everyone would know ahead of the series what colour teams have chosen. This is way a team like the Jets could do their traditional white out in the arena without their fans looking like they're supporting the opposing team.
  2. Having the NHL logo on the front, and on the collar seems a bit redundant. They should put the ASG logo in the collar (or some sort of star pattern like last season). That way they could use the NHL100 patch on the shoulder.
  3. The junior A team in Kanata was formerly known as the Stallions (they are the Lasers now), and they used a black, red, and green colour scheme. I always thought that if they Devils were going to introduce a black alternate, that they should incorporate some green into the mix as a nod to the previous uniforms, and something like the uniform below is what I had in mind (minus the phantom yoke). With that being said, they shouldn't touch the primary logo or uniforms. If the change is drastic, we'll likely see them pull a Penguins and eventually go back to the set they won their first Cups in. I'm hopeful that the Sens will listen to the majority of their fans, and go to the heritage unis full time (there's been a pretty strong amount of Twitter activity pushing them to do so), but I realize that it's probably wishful thinking. It will most likely end up being a slightly different red home jersey with the same logo they have now, and a matching white. Even if it's not what I want, I'll be happy to see the current Edge-templated messes gone. As for the Oilers, the orange jersey is a perfect alternate. It supports their primary identity well, and is great in small doses, but should not be worn 41 times a year. This reminds me a lot of the Flyers dropping orange and going with black at home full time. The Blue Jackets should take this opportunity to swap the primary & shoulder logos on their home and away. The cannon has become one of the most recognized aspects of their brand, and is far too detailed to be on the shoulder. I'd also like to see them stop playing Rangers dress up, and switch to navy breezers.
  4. These are definitely a big improvement over the current templated mess, but they still look too much like the Devils and Blackhawks. Every red and black team in the league uses a red primary. The easiest way to stand out would be to change to a prominently black look, I've made it known here quite a bit that I'm in the "switch to the heritage look full time" camp, but even a switch to the 95-99 look (minus the red toga alt), with the updated profile logo would work for me.
  5. This is probably my favorite NFL matchup period, let along among the potential Super Bowl matchups. I'm a sucker for helmets and pants matching up, plus the cool, dark colour scheme of the Raiders perfectly balances out the bright, colourful Packers.
  6. Dallas has a couple of hands on owners who have had a good amount of success.
  7. I have to disagree with you on this one. That logo is a wordmark with a football & a maple leaf. For a team playing in the Canadian Football League this would be redundant. The current logo is an excellent modernization of the classic Rough Riders' helmet logo, and the buzzsaw is a great nod to the lumberjack branding the team has come to be known for.
  8. I'm hoping that with this reveal the Sens finally come to their senses and ditch the gladiator for the heritage look full time. I am surprised that the wordmark doesn't emphasize "Knights" over "Golden". As for the use of "Vegas" rather than "Las Vegas", I'd prefer the full name, but the logo is nice without an "L" shoehorned in there somewhere. Besides, they aren't the New York City Rangers/Islanders, North Carolina Hurricanes, or Tampa Lightning.
  9. Actually that's just the NHL's generic team name font. You see it on all of the shirts players are usually shown wearing in dressing room interviews.
  10. It's pretty wild to think that with all the outdoor games the Blackhawks have been a part of, they've never worn red outside. I dont mind this look, but it's so similar to the last Winter Classic uniforms they had.
  11. I count 5 stripes in both pictures, as in the number of lines in a music bar.
  12. So unless the Giants win the pennant, we're getting two blue and red teams in the World Series.
  13. Nobody is saying that Las Vegas has more die-hard hockey fans than Quebec City. It's about growing the game. Think back to when the league first expanded and added teams in California and St. Louis instead of Vancouver. They gave those markets a chance to grow fan bases, and now they've become hotbeds for youth hockey in the States. The NHL is a business, and should always be trying to grow. The Maritimes may be able to support a CFL franchise, but the NHL would never work there. It's much easier convince fans from New Brunswick or PEI to travel to Halifax when you have 9 home games (mostly on weekends) rather than 41 home games.
  14. I'm not the biggest fan of the uniform, but if they got rid of the 425 on the patch and replaced it with MTL they'd have a great primary logo.
