black lines on dark charcoal

Likely splitting hairs, but it's more slate. Charcoal is generally only a bit lighter than black.

It doesn't go with the team design and flags on sports uniforms (especially state/provincial) are lame.  Plus there are two teams in Alberta.    

I find it funnier that they weren't even the first NHL team in Alberta.

 

...Almost as pretentious as the Panthers.

Also look like Calgary are keeping their flags on the shoulders...

Well, in fairness to the Flames, it is a look that says, "Hell yes, we'll trade for Mike Smith!"

Unforgivable act of defeating the great Chicago in 2012 notwithstanding, I'll give him a chance :rolleyes:.  This is so frustrating because no matter what they do with the striping, the jersey will be completely ruined by that tacky, obtrusive and wholly unnecessary clash-patch.  How hard would it have been to use the logo from their recently retired alternate.  Or just leave the shoulders empty if you can't come up with a real secondary logo.  I thought this would be the year we would finally be rid of that thing but in true Flames fashion, it was not to be.  They deserve every bit of backlash they're going to get over this.

On the same level of those who approved the current LA Clippers uniforms. So to answer your question: very.

Well, with the way they handled the Shane Doan situation, there goes any chance at the Coyotes maintaining a fanbase. I expect to see them in the Pacific Northwest by 2020.

That team isn't leaving Arizona as long as Gary Bettman's drawing breath.

Digging the new Sharks patch. Would be a waste to not use any of those new logos on the uniforms.

 

And definitely yay to the Mighty Ducks patch staying. That's one non-change I'm happy about, at least.

Ok I undestand that Calgary is proud of being from Alberta, but this Flags on shoulders still doesn't look good. Why they can't go with this alternate log or without any logos?

Because this is the same ownership group that dresses the Stampeders.  They're stubborn beyond belief and have a terrible sense of style

They opted to keep everything as is, for the most part, because they don't care to make any aesthetic improvements. The roundel C with mountains would make for a beautiful shoulder patch. But they don't bother investing time and money to add their own input because it's not in their priorities.

What if Calgary is basically the same jersey minus the trim going to nowhere?

 

It will likely be the same striping style extracted from the generic Reebok template and inserted onto a generic Adidas template. :rolleyes:
