For kicks and giggles I did a quick replacement of black on the Avs' road unis to blue:

(also swapped the darn blue touching burgundy for the shoulder number)  Not sure if this might be TOO much blue.  What do you think; better than the black?

 

I like the Avs roads as they are. Having a maroon/black/white combo with only small blue accents is the way to go.

 

Unpopular opinion??

I think more than anything, they need to figure out if their dark color is navy or black. I’d like to see them switch all the black to navy. It may be necessary to go down to a single blue in that case, but I’d be okay with that. The third jersey color scheme feels colder to me and, in my opinion, it’s important that the main identity and third work together. I also agree that the number trim on the sleeves looks better silver like you’ve shown. Even solid silver sleeve numbers would work on both home and road, to be honest.

Why didn’t you make this happen?! ;)

 

I think navy replacing steel blue and black would be a great tweak.

I think it would work wonders for Colorado if they just swapped the black in their uniforms for navy.

Maybe this is just a minor nitpick. But one thing that would need to remain black is the puck in their logo. Idk about navy. The light blue accents blend in nicely with their crest.

Yeah, the light blue w/ the maroon reminds me of the Loyola Marymount teams w/ Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble. I still have the SI w/ Kimble shooting left "For you Hank"

I think burgundy with a blue outline  would be better than this

On paper, the black treatment shouldn't work for the Avalanche but now that they've finally fixed the jerseys, I don't see the reason for a change.  They look like the two teams that lifted the Stanley Cup and that's more than we could have hoped for.  The home jersey in particular looks better than ever.

Can't find a good picture to confirm, but I think the Blue Jackets may be using a raised 3d decal on their helmets now.

Really like your user title about the straight hem, and your avy photo really shows how awful they are, a lot worse than last year.

That Ranger back looks like a clown smiling

It sure looks that way in these pictures from 2 nights ago. The depth of it is especially noticeable on Wennberg's.

The hem stripe change is still an improvement over last year's look for a lot of teams. See Pittsburgh as an example.

Big improvement for Pittsburgh.  The Rangers, not so much.  The more stripes on the hem, the worse it looks from the back (see Carolina at home).

Sorry, i don´t see the improvement with the penguins, yes the yellow stripe is thinner, but now you got two curved hem stripes.

I think it went from bad to worse.

Yep, wanted to see if I liked the Preds jerseys, in context. I don't. A patch on both shoulders and navy helmets would go a long way, but unless they win a cup in them, I'm not getting one.

Vegas arena is rocking!! Sounds like a playoff game. Anyone else see that huge Knight helmet and castle they showed in the corner of arena. Pretty sweet
