Had to post a screenshot, but didn't see the 20th anniversary logo for the Canes anywhere on the last few pages. Not quite sure where they found that font for the 20. Otherwise, I think it's a nice anniversary logo.

I think this is one of the final concepts that ultimately didn't make the cut.  The collar color and lettering doesn't match the teasers.

 

Regardless, I think there's several things about the Adidas jerseys we can gleam from this.

 

1.  The collar is too thick for my liking.  It'll look different on a player, though, because these collars lay flat against the shoulder pads and won't look quite as wide.  That being said, I think a solid contrasting collar like this one won't look good, especially with this front pentagon neck tie shape we've got going on now.  Collars that match the color of the jersey body or shoulders, and collars that are multiple colors (not different colors front and back, but traditional stripes of color going all the way around) might look okay.  I'm really interested to see how collar thats have colored stripes look with that solid pentagon.

 

2. Thin shoulder piping is still around.  I was hoping we'd get a bit thicker outlines on shoulder yokes. We also know from the Ducks teaser that phantom yokes are still with us.

 

3. The hemline is straight in front, but still scooped in the back.  We're halfway there.  What's interesting to me, though, is that the waist stripes are not straight all the way around.  They're straight in the front but follow the curve in the back.  The result is that the thickness between the bottom of the stripes and the hemline are consistent all the way around the jersey.  This is a huge improvement over the Edge stripes and hems.  On the Pens current Edge jerseys, for example, you get a decent, proper sized yellow stripe on the bottom of the front of the jersey, then it gets very small on the sides where the scooped hems on the front and back came together, and then you have this huge yellow flap on the back of the jersey due to the top of the stripe being straight all the way around the jersey but the back hemline scoop being deeper than the front.  This Adidas style would solve that and make a proper sized yellow bottom stripe all the way around the jersey.  It also gives the back numbers a little more breathing room by curving the stripes on the back.  Of course, the easiest and best solution would be to just have straight stripes and hems all the way, but we can't have everything I guess.

If the Canes are changing their font to the on used for the 20 here, I like the change.

That 2 is hideous.  The top is thicker than the bottom.  Uneven serifs that use curves on top and angles on the bottom.  Ugh.

I think the bottom of the numbers may still be rounded and sized the same as the top.  Looks like the numbers are behind the bar on the bottom

I am sure I could get used to that, it means the road whites will match, but that is disappointing. Should have just stuck with blue and re-introduced the orange third with the thick hem stripe in a year. Thin stripes don't suit orange.

Quick and dirty example of what I was talking about that also matches the supposed draft hat.

This just emphasises to me how much I look forward to Vegas' first rebrand. :P

If that's true, then it's just bad design overall.  Too many layers.

I found a better footage of the jacket at The D event. 

 

This may be the new numbers for the VGK's jersey? You can see the gold outlines around the thick numbers.

"Bubolz" is in a standard block font, whereas "Stevens" and "Gallant" are in Agency. The numerals are more baseball-sized than hockey-sized. I wouldn't put any stock in this.

I don’t know if I’m hallucinating, but the space between the stripes seems to be another color. You see it better when you zoom in. Maybe copper, like the Oilers used in the 90’s?

It's the acid, I had the same problem a few pages back.

In NHL years, yes. In total years (including their founding in the WHA), no.

In fact it seems to me that the oil drop in the logo is the same color as the space between the stripes, and not orange. Am I the only one who's seeing this?

 

And sorry, I've got no acid left for you guys.

Ha! Somebody else mentioned it in the comments on Icethetics. I'm not crazy! Or maybe we both are.

The collar has differences. But it could be real deal, or the final product could be similar minus the collar.

 

If it's real, I like it. Everything stands out very well.
