This all make sense. But the same circumstances appear to exist with Nike and the NBA, but they're managing to produce at least three new uniforms (and, in some cases, four) for each team,  as well as Christmas Day specials, All-Star unis and warmups. Is the production of NHL uniforms that much more demanding than it is for the NBA? 

 

I would think so.

I was not trying to be harsh at all.  Not my intention to be harsh, either.  

I was only apologizing for what I had stated as a fact when it is all a rumour.

 

I meant what I said sounded harsh. :-)

John McDonough doesn't like alternate jerseys, so don't get your heart set on the black third coming back (though he did seem to allow the Winter Classic sweater to stick around for a couple years).

For one, there’s not much new identity. A few new lettering pieces, but otherwise all existing logos. Minnesota was done by an outside agency. The Cavs got new type, but the logos were compiled from existing ones.

 

Two, most of the thirds we’ve seen thus far are the same as what was being worn before, or a riff on the team’s existing design.

 

Three, I don’t know how big the design team working on this stuff is, how they work, or what their goal is, nor do I know how NBA teams briefed these projects.

 

Four, in general, there is a bit less “design” on an basketball uniform v. a hockey uniform (depending on the team, of course).

 

Those things make huge differences.

Here are the teams that I think that will have alternates:

Anaheim, Arizona, Boston, Calgary, Carolina, Colorado, Columbus, Dallas, Edmonton, Florida, LA Kings, Minnesota, Nashville, NY Islanders, NY Rangers, New Jersey, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, San Jose, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Vegas, Vancouver, Washington and Winnipeg

That all makes sense. Thanks for the insight.

The Sens season ticket packages for this year add even more fuel to the full time =O= fire.

Plus they're probably getting an outdoor game at Notre Dame next season, and the outdoor racket basically gives the Hawks a new alternate jersey every season.

It's a shame, because the original black alternate looked so good.

 Best picture of an Adidas collar I’ve seen... :P

 

 

They look so much better from that point of view!

 

Upgrade.

A chest stripe contrasting the logo like that would look pretty good, and help liven up that horribly boring logo a bit.

I'd like to see the Oilers get a navy alternate without shoulder yokes.

 

That's what they did the first time they switched to navy. It looked better then and I think changing the new one would make it look better now too. The orange jersey needs to keep the yoke, though. Just change the white.

 

Also, it would help distinguish the road Oilers from the road Sabres a little more.

saww a picture of the habs red jerseys on facebook, and came to this thought.

 

ANY of the contrasting collar jerseys that have a different box for the NHL shield look like they are wearing a polo underneath the jersey

 

and i hate it

Useless hockey fact that I just learned watching the Leafs/Jets game.  For a league that was considering having all jerseys tucked in with the Reebok Edge jerseys in 2007, they introduced a rule for the 2013-14 season that all players can't have their jerseys tucked in.  I find that kind of funny.

Maybe.  I certainly expect them to be worlds better than the alternate class that followed the Edge switch-over.  Ottawa SNES anyone?  Just for fun, here are my predictions:

Anaheim Ducks - Orange alternate returns unchanged in preparation for eventual switch.

Calgary Flames - Retro red returns but never reaches full time status because the ownership is incompetent.
Carolina Hurricanes - Black alternate returns unchanged.

Colorado Avalanche - Rockies inspired logo returns on a new jersey using their lighter blue.  Snow capped yokes return in a more traditional shape.
Columbus Blue Jackets - Canon returns on a new uniform design, hopefully without vintage white and that awful number font.
Edmonton Oilers - Royal Blue, Gretzky era throwback.

Florida Panthers - Updated, leaping-panther becomes the main crest on a navy base with simple, traditional stripes.

Minnesota Wild - Iron Range reds return without the phantom yoke.  Team inexplicably forgoes hem stripes.

New Jersey Devils - Red and Green throwback gets butchered in a way similar to their main set.
Ottawa Senators - Heritage jersey without vintage white in preparation for the eventual switch.

San Jose - 'Black Armour' returns with even less stripes (for performance reasons of course ;) ).

St Louis Blues - Arch roundel returns on a new uniform design.

Tampa Bay Lightning - Cup era throwback with "Bolts" replacing their original logo.

Vancouver Canucks - Johnny Canuck becomes the main crest on a blue jersey with striping similar to the previous alt.

Washington Capitals - 70's era throwback.

 

I would assume the Pens would be bringing back the successful gold alternate from last season. It was well-received, and worn at least twice after the outdoor win over Philadelphia. I didn't realize the Pens also wore the original gold alternate during the early 80s NHL playoffs.

And then players were stapling the jerseys to their equipment to get around that rule.

Edmonton's new look is completely ruined by the new navy helmets. They look black and don't match the shoulders or pants at all.

The old pre-Edge ones were much closer.
