I think it's the pairing with the gold that gives the grey the illusion of that Teal tint.  It's there on the flat applications of the logo but absent on the real jerseys entirely.

I'm thinking it's the monitor lighting give it the illusions... i took this picture last week after the Awards Show. You can see Marc-Andre Fleury's jearsey have the exact same teal shade on the large screen, while in person look normal.

Also people may calibrate their monitors differently. What looks like teal-grey to someone on their screen may appear like a more normal grey to someone else on their screen.

 

Ultimately @andrewharrington's right. Trust actual product over graphics. Chances are what's made in the physical world will be closest to what was intended.

Agreed but it's not crazy to think that they may have tweaked the graphic (color) before going to product. Anyway I'm over this topic because it really doesn't matter one bit.

just noticed that the Ducks' draft hat striping is incorrect. White and gold flipped

It is once people with actual knowledge tell you that they didn't.

A general sense of skepticism is warranted online, but we do have some people here who can speak from authority.  And he's one of them.

I can echo Harrington's statements, it has been dark grey the whole time.

Is there any reason we haven't seen Edmonton and Nashville's away jerseys yet?

Incorrect striping is the least of that hat's problems.
