Disappointing? I was hoping for blue stripes and silver collar not inversely. I mean something like this:

That's too dark and brings back the awful blue touching burgundy issue the prior set had.

I mean, if they were going for a single stripe that's the way to go. Just not sure not having the blue was the right thing.

I can see why the Avs decided to go with the single silver stripe.  It gets pretty loud with the blue added in:

Only if loud means perfect.  That would have been one of the best road jerseys in the league.  Going with just silver makes it look unbalanced and unfinished.  Oh well, at the least homes still look great.

Looks 1000x better with the blue, how did they miss this?

Yeah but it's still miles better than before. We could've have an Ottawa and Washington scenario with this team.

Waiting to see what color the names and numbers are.  If they are blue I can see the silver stripe making even more sense.

The numbers on the sleeves will likely be white outlined in blue.  I can see the back numbers being blue outlined in silver.  Or black outlined in silver...which would kinda suck.

Colorado maybe wanted consistency by having mountain pattern striping with a single outline for both jerseys.

 

The full uniform might look better with names, numbers and all.

Those would be alright if they go with blue numbers, names, and pants. 

 

Based on the home, I really hope they've decided to eliminate the black from their set (besides logos). Considering how much emphasis they've put on honoring the past uniforms though, the black is probably sticking around.

Personally, I think it's a little crowded with the blue and silver

Unpopular opinion: I really like their recent away (ducks)...but why does the logo look higher up and smaller than on the red?

The striping pattern on the home is burgundy/silver/blue.  It's far more inconsistent to leave off an essential colour than to worry about both uniforms having a single outline.
