Tonight, I hope we smash the old "most online" post by a lot. I could bet we beat it by at least 300.

Just curious now (because a quick Google search didn't pull it up), what happened on April 26, 2016 for the boards to explode like that? Looking at my profile, I just missed it by a month or two.

So, to sum it up: the Predators have gone from cluttered to boring. And the Blues didn't fix the real problem with their uniform (the inconsistency between the sleeve/hem stripes and the yoke stripes) but did randomly switch to bland white numbers just to sell more jerseys.

 

Good to know college football isn't the only sport Adidas is hell-bent on ruining. When's their contract up again?

Like other(s) have said, the collar is going to have a big effect on how each uniform looks. It certainly works for Columbus.

Still want to see the back of Columbus since they are using the 3rd jersey font. Wonder if they still go 2 color or just white

I also think the collar upgrades the Blues jersey. Something always bugged me about the collar on there last Rbk set

Seeing minor changes to the Blues makes me think there might be a chance (albeit slight) that the Lightning add some more black to the stripes...

I doubt we will see any teams keeping the exact same look. Who knows though.

I'm going to miss the Reebok's collar style... I love how the NHL shield have a little "pocket" and it fit well with the look of the jersey... 

 

I dislike the new adidas one now... it reminded me of NFL ones with the ugly flyware on it.

It's not the end of the world with Nashville and St. Louis.  St. Louis is making a mistake going with white numbers, but that's something that could easily be changed back next year or even before this up coming season if enough fans complain, similar to how it was with the Lightnings' uniform not having any black on it and the team added a little to the trim and putting the lightning bolt back onto the pants.

 

With Nashville, I'm thinking they probably could have kept the striping pattern the same minus the pin stripes down the sides, but this was probably done to give fans more reason to change.  It's similar to the old jersey, but still different enough that fans will pay up for the new one.  I wonder how the white version will be, whether or not the sleeve design will match how the socks on the old jersey looked?  And, it's probably just the lighting, but does the blue look darker when compared to the old jersey?

Whenever I think of the busiest days I think of the Edge updates from a decade ago, the AZ Cardinals, and a few others.  But I forget how many more members we now have.  This thing could shut down tonight.

I have a sinking feeling that there won't be any lace-up collars. I thought they looked great on the Habs jerseys and was probably the only redeeming feature on the Flames.

I liked them up until the point nearly every team had added them to jump on the vintage bandwagon. Might be good to just have a reset across the board

Today will be a great day here, but it's be nice to see some form of a stream. Why charge fans? 

 

Essentially the same reason the NHL put a team in a primarily-transient market like Las Vegas while spurning a sure-fire rabid hockey market like Quebec City.
