  1. NHL 2017-18

    I would prefer they just go with the adjective-less Knights name as well, but based on what I've read/heard, it doesn't seem like an option (otherwise Foley likely would've just adopted it when Black Knights got vetoed).
  2. NHL 2017-18

    Even if somehow Vegas loses the rights to the Golden Knights name, I highly doubt there will be any changes to the logo or uniforms. It seems like the branding was done purposely to not put any emphasis on "Golden", in case something like this happened. My guess is they would just shift to either Sand Knights or Dessert Knights, and make a slight adjustment to their wordmark logo. Given the historic start this franchise has had, they've already managed to build up quite a bit of brand equity with the current logo & uniforms. There's no way they ditch that to become the Neon Knights and bring magenta into the fold (or make any other branding changes that some have suggested).
  3. NHL 2018-19

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Panthers unveil a 3rd jersey using the updated leaping panther on the inaugural red uniform (with the shade of gold updated). Would be a nice way to tie both looks together, and I'm sure they would sell well given the current wave of '90s nostalgia.

    I am a fan of the Panthers inaugural set, but it's tough to call the template original when these bad boys were introduced the season before:
  5. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I would prefer to see them split the difference when it comes to the shade of blue. The navy helmet is far too dark, but I'd like to see them darken the jerseys just a touch. My ideal situation with the 2 LA teams would see the Rams using darker royal & yellow, with white only used on the road jerseys, and the Chargers using powder blue & white, with yellow trim. Both schemes are fitting for SoCal teams, and are distinct enough from each other.
  6. NHL 2017-18

    Except Vegas has pretty much adopted this exact scheme (and even has a better executed gold-helmeted historical warrior logo).
  7. NHL 2018-19

    I would rather see them pull a Rangers and use the heritage jerseys, but come up with a crest or shield that incorporates the =O= and have that he the official primary logo. These are great, but the inconsistency between the jersey/sock stripes and the pant stripes really bothers me. They should either have the striping match the jerseys, or just use solid black shells.
  8. NHL 2017-18

    When they announced last year's game in Pitt, they said the plan was always to have Philly host the matchup the following year outside (in honour of both teams' 50th anniversaries). Not sure why they didn't do it this season though. I'm still surprised the NHL hasn't tried to capitalize on last year's playoffs by having the Preds play outside at Nissan Stadium, especially when the Blackhawks would be the most logical opponent.
  9. NHL 2017-18

    While I've made it pretty clear on this board that I'm on team "go with the O", I'd actually prefer a primarily black 2D gladiator set over a primarily red =O= set. Every red & black team in the league uses red at home, and with the addition of silver you're suddenly entering Carolina territory. As a one-off special event jersey I'm ok with it, but this team should be in black, like they were when they entered the league.
  10. NHL 2017-18

    This teaser shows a bit more than the first, and it actually does look like a thin silver stripe separating the black & white. Still not sure what colour the actual jersey is going to be though. Red would be interesting, given the team's already done a black & white heritage set, but I'm still hoping for black. One red jersey is one to many for the team IMO.
  11. NHL 2017-18

    The Belleville Sens have shown that the regular white is a big improvement.
  12. NHL 2017-18

    I'd like to see the Blackhawks finally break this out: And this would be a unique look for Boston (the football-style numbers would fit the setting well):
  13. NHL 2017-18

    Can't believe I forgot about Dallas. Although much like the Canucks, I really like that they always have green and black separated by white. When alternates are inevitably brought back, I think the Stars would look great in a black jersey with green numbers outlined in white. Maybe the Texas state outline logo on the front.
  14. NHL 2017-18

    I feel like your last suggestion contradicts your previous points. One thing Vancouver has gotten right with their most recent branding is the consistency of the colour scheme. Aside from their last poor attempt at a third jersey, green and blue are always separated by white, which prevents the bleeding issue you brought up. I think the only way a green outline on the numbers would work would be if they did a double outline in the vein of the Lightning. With that being said, I actually prefer the single-layer numbers. They're unique in the fact that they are the only multi-colour team with single colour numbers. They just need to find a way to add some green to the collars.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    The hem stripe change is still an improvement over last year's look for a lot of teams. See Pittsburgh as an example. Last year: This year:
  16. NHL 2017-18

    The Sens season ticket packages for this year add even more fuel to the full time =O= fire.
  17. NHL 2017-18

    I think what he means is that between the two Florida franchises, the Panthers seem to own the sun/palm tree imagery. It does seem a little odd to feature a sunny beach in a logo for an all star game being hosted by a team called the Lightning.
  18. NHL 2017-18

    They should've done things the other way around and changed the sleeve/gen striping to match the socks. The thicker outlines would be a big improvement.
  19. NHL 2017-18

    While the font change is definitely and upgrade, on the whole these are even worse than what they were wearing before. The old look was a template-y mess, but at least it was a template designed for the Edge jerseys. Now the side panels don't even connect with the underarm panel. It's just a floating blob of colour. I also thought the collars might look better in full gear, but they really don't.

    I'm liking the simplicity of the O by itself at center ice. I can't tell from the picture, but hopefully they've gotten rid of the 3D centurion inside the red line. It reminds me a bit of the Yotes old ice, the way the logo fills the whole circle:
  22. 2017-18 CHL Logos/Jerseys

    Yes, for whatever reason they've gone with this look for camp the last few years or so.
  23. NHL 2017-18

    I'd agree with you in most cases (I never got used to saying Scotiabank Place), but seeing as TD Place is a complex that includes both an outdoor stadium & an indoor arena I'd consider it an exception.
  24. NBA Changes 2017-18

    These look way too much like the Bulls. I prefer the black set from this era that used red & orange as trim colours. The orange is just enough to keep them from looking like Blazers rip offs.
  25. NHL 2017-18

    The team website is now also putting emphasis on the =O= logo. Seems like they're finally listening to the backlash they've been getting for not making any major changes. Based on all the hints they're giving now, I wouldn't be surprised if they make the change official before the end of this season. I highly doubt fans will be busting down the doors to buy the Adizero messes anyway.
