As a Preds fan, I actually like them better than the homes. I wish the homes would've done the inverse and added blue shoulders. They are just too plain right now.

I really like the yellow shoulder.

Huge downgrade from the previous sweater.  Why couldn't they have done something like this...

It's so much better than I expected.  The yellow yoke adds so much to what would otherwise be a relatively plain white sweater.  

 

The music lines appear to be in the sleeve numbers now besides just the back - where they there before?

I think I actually like these. Not a ton, but still. They're a huge improvement, compared to the homes. Now why couldn't they have just followed this template, on the homes?

No, the guitar strings on the sleeve numbers is new, for this season.

Well I'll be damned. They actually changed it up. Shows what I know.

 

I actually like those. Promoting the gold on the road look is smart, seeing as the Preds own that as far as it being a primary colour goes. It looks sharp. Much nicer than their home sweaters. Which are fine, if a bit lacking.

It's too much yellow for me on its own, but that will probably get balanced out by the pants. The striping makes me think we're going to have the galoshes look on the road socks again, unfortunately.

What if Trevor Linden, as President of the team, changes the logo? I think he might follow suit (being an alum in the front office of his former team) of Joe Sakic and bring back the look his time and the team's former glory days by bringing back the skate logo and jerseys. This might be a stretch, but I don't think any of us really thought Colorado would bring back the cup-winning set, so perhaps Linden does the same during this rebuild. I've seen polls from fans and the winning look the majority of the time is the '94 cup run sweaters.

I just saw a side by side comparison of the Flames home, and while it's obviously the same for a lot of teams, this just made it so apparent that the new adidas collar looks SO much worse than reebok's. What an ugly step backwards.

Preds road:

 

Ohhhhhh no no no noooo. That just isn't good.

 

No to the yellow yoke, especially with the full yellow collar. And I really hate the white/yellow shoulder seam. That navy border needs to go around the whole thing. It definitely needs navy to balance out, and yes I know it'll be there with the pants, but still doesn't sell me.

 

And again, another instance of mismatching the templates. It's almost like they heard the "too plain" comments about the home uniform (It really needs something), but couldn't change it and just put something on the road white. Why did the road white need something going on on the shoulder where the home gold didn't? Plain white, plain gold, what's the real difference? The yoke really, to me, looks like it was just laid over on top of the jersey. Like someone looked at it and said, nah, needs something, and just plopped some yellow on top and called it a day.

Because that makes them look like a blue team that uses gold trim. They are the opposite now.

It looks better than their home jersey. The home jerseys should follow this.

The Blackhawks look like a black team that uses red trim on the road. It works out okay for them.

I like it. Sort of like the Sabres, with the priorities of blue and yellow switched.

That's their problem too much yellow.

I like this a lot better than the new home by FAR. For those that fear it's too much yellow, no it isn't. Yellow is the Preds colour now. Why shouldn't they embrace it?
