    Yes, I'm aware of the amalgamation, but the address of the CTC is still Kanata, ON. Brooklyn isn't a city either, but they still used it on the Islanders hat.

    Then the Sens should technically say Kanata, ON. Based on the bottom right pictures it looks like the phantom shoulder piping is back. Also, I may be wrong, but that middle picture looks like a new state-outline logo.

    From a report of the Sens town hall meetings with season ticket holders: "Eugene Melnyk said based on season ticket holder suggestions the teams development camp hardest working player will now receive the Jonathan Pitre Award each year. Also a STH suggestion of having the Canadian flag somewhere on the uniform will be pursued." If this actually happens, hopefully they just bring back this shoulder patch instead of lazily slapping a flag patch on, Calgary style.

    What expansion teams mascot could have been.

    What about the USL's Indy Eleven?

    The variety of colour schemes in this playoffs is great. I count 10 different primary jersey colours, and almost all of the first-round matchups are between 2 distinct looks (other than CBJ-WSH, which are inverted versions of each other).

    Perhaps they've already committed to the =O= as the primary logo and uniform (I like the theory that they're not including the '90s uniforms as an option so that the heritage jerseys win by a landslide), but are gauging how popular the 2-D would be on merch. They can still sell vintage logo tshirts without bringing it back as the primary. Right now most of the vintage apparel the team sells uses the pre-modern O logo below:

    The Sens sent out a survey to all of their season ticket holders asking for feedback on all aspects of the organization. They included questions about the jerseys & logos: I'm surprised they didn't include the 2-D jerseys in the survey, especially since they have it in the logo question. It seems like the fanbase is split between people who want to go with the O, and those who prefer the '90s look. The only thing everyone can agree on is that the current look is terrible.

    I mean if they had chosen the safe route & gone with blue pants/gloves then no one would be talking about the uniforms. Fans don't buy team breezers or gloves, so they aren't hurting sales by going with something over the top. Plus, from what I hear the all-white Pacific All-Star uniforms were a big hit with kids. If anything the buzz around these probably helped the jersey sales (rarely have I seen so much attention paid to outdoor game uniforms outside these boards before). Obviously a more traditional choice would have looked a bit better on TV, but these games are about trying something different (especially when the Leafs have played in 2 before).

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    While it's not a bad look, I think you're missing the point of the topic. Much like the Modesto Nuts or Montgomery Biscuits, the Baby Cakes have a perfect "minor league" identity. They don't take themselves too seriously, and have injected a lot of local flavour into the brand. It's great, but isn't "MLB caliber". I do think though that if Nashville were to ever get an MLB team, they could easily adopt the Sounds identity (maybe with a couple of tweaks here or there):

    Why does no team use earth tone colors? 

    The old Coyotes look was pretty Earth-toned.

    Also because Terrence Ross already pulled this gimmick a few years back (with the right jersey too).

    Another small thing that bothers me is that the main numbers on the home jerseys are white outlined in silver on a burgundy background, but the sleeve numbers on the roads are white outlined in blue on a burgundy background. The blue pants look better than black & burgundy, but they would definitely be jarring on the road considering the lack of blue on the jersey. They definitely should have added blue sleeve piping next to the silver.

    At this point I have no faith in this organization making any smart decisions, off or on the ice, so who knows? With that being said, if they were already planning on making the switch to the =O= for next year (which it seems like they are), I'm sure they would have had to submit the changes to the league by now.

    I never realized they had updated the nameplates when they first wore them inside, but upon some further research you're right (I've clearly stopped paying any attention to the games): What's strange is that they literally took the same numbers from the home jerseys (unlike the other =O= jerseys that used double outlines), but offered no explanation on why the name font was changed. I was at least expecting some marketing speak claiming it matches the font used on the original Stanley Cup or something.
