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.

I wasn't happy when they switched to gold helmets in the last set. Now that the navy is so minimal, they desperately need navy helmets again. Or just more navy on the jersey. Or both.

Both would be good.

They need navy shoulders to mirror the road look.

I was vehemently against the gold helmets, but I was watching an old video and the navy blue actually looks kind of weird now that I'm used to the gold.

I don't think the Preds gold jerseys need navy shoulders.  It'd be too much navy between the sleeves, hem, and numbers.  The yellow would be trapped too much.

 

The yellow shoulders work on the white jersey because there's less contrast between yellow and white versus navy and yellow.

 

On both jerseys the thin stripe (white stripe on yellow jersey, navy on white) needs to be far thicker on the sleeve and hem. Or go back to the type of striping they had on the last set of big sleeve&hem end color/thin stripe/thick stripe.

 

I like the new white sock (if the blue stripe were thicker), but I wish the striping pattern on the home and road sets of socks matched.  I prefer the white socks over the yellows.  The yellow socks are too blocky.

 

The color balance would be really nice if those changes were made and they went back to navy helmets.  Right now the balance is thrown way out of whack skewed towards yellow and looks off.

The chant, which was lead by the vegas announcer, to start the game was "Go Knights Go."   How much longer until the Golden Knights are officially just the Knights...

Teams with adjectives in their nicknames always shorten it for chants, merch, etc. See Leafs, Wolves, Sox, Jays, etc. 

 

I assume for trademark reasons, the "Golden" descriptor will always be part of their proper name.

I get that and tend to agree, but I just found it odd for their first ever game, they already shortened it.

Doubt it. Will the Blue Jackets ever change their name to "Jackets" because the fans chant "let's go Jackets!"? Nope.

I'm not so certain. Red/White Sox, Blue Jackets, etc. work best as a full name. Eliminating the first word kind of guts the identity.

 

Knights works just as well, if not better, on its own. I could just as easily see VGK becoming the next Devil Rays. The Golden could fall by the wayside until the team decides to rebrand as the Las Vegas Knights.

If they could've legally been named the Knights, they would've been.  They can't drop the descriptive adjective from the trademark at this point

I wonder what the London Knights are thinking. How does a junior hockey team not accept millions of dollars from an NHL team to copy their team name? Especially when the NHL team is now calling themselves Knights in arena and commentators on tv are saying Knights. 

 

Always take the money folks!

Is it possible, or has anyone tried yet, to remove the adidas button from the front of the fan authentics?

 

Yes, it is simply sewn on and can be removed with a seam-splitter or some cosmetic scissors.

The London Knights stated they hadn’t been contacted by the club that became the Vegas Golden Knights. They never took the money because Vegas never offered any. 

 

Considerinh Bill Foley’s hardon for all things US Army? I wouldn’t be shocked if it came out he was the main obstacle to naming the team “Knights” and working out a deal with London’s OHL team.

In all likelihood he insisted on the “Golden” part of the team name when “Black” was shot down by the Army.

Do you refer to the University of Minnesota as the Gophers, or the Golden Gophers?

 

The Gophers. But I also refer to the Blackhawks as the Hawks.

Yeah I didn't mean officially. They'll always be the Golden Knights, but in casual conversation, who's going to call them that?

Leafs vs. Maple Leafs is another example of this. You rarely ever hear the latter unless its following 'Toronto'. So I don't really have a problem with chanting just Knights. Multiple other fanbases really only use the nickname most of the time. Avs, Wings, Jackets, Canes etc. Habs itself is a nickname within a nickname.
