I defended the new Preds yellow jerseys when they were first unveiled, but they just looked... wrong on the ice. i agree that they need to bring back the navy helmets... and maybe just start over on the striping pattern. the thin white line between the yellow and navy just doesn't work.

 

The Knights looked fantastic in grey. Always good to see an expansion team get it right the first time.

That sure is a yellow hockey jersey.

 

The previous set had problems but at least it got the colour separation right. This is bland in comparison.

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?

Yuck.  I could understand if black and navy swapped, but not the light blue for pants and numbers.  But, they have dropped the navy all together (the C logo now has a black center dot) and thirds are being replaced.  But I definitely don't want navy to replace the light blue.  Too dark next to the maroon.  I thought the thirds last few years were horrendous.

The color balance would be really nice if those changes were made and they went back to navy helmets. 

 

I disagree. What I would like to see is the Predators go with yellow on the road and a matching navy at home. I love the uniqueness of the yellow helmets. 

 

And speaking of helmets, the Golden Knights' grey lids look amazing.

^ Agreed but this current uniform matchup...... new Avs homes (clearly the better of the 2 new unis of theirs) + small improvements to numbers on an already-solid Bruins uniform = simply outstanding uniform matchup. They both look great and plenty of contrast.

The Avalanche are so confusing with their branding.  They really really push the stupid C logo:

100% chance next year we get an alternate with the C logo as the crest.

The Devils’ new uniforms are really growing on me. 

 

I love the bold striping and it’s not so much of a departure from what they used to wear. Feels more and more like a strong evolution of a set that had history but was by no means iconic. 

 

(God, I’m going to get crushed for this.)

If I could change only one team back to their previous look, it's the Boston Bruins. Not the New Jersey Devils.

I really like what the B’s did, getting the striping to make more sense. I just wish the yellow socks were an option.

I must have missed the whole not being able to be just the Knights because of the London Knights, anyone have a good link stating why they needed permission?

I REALLY like the striping pattern. It's definitely better that the old one. It adds more of the opposite color, so there's more red on the road, and more white on the home. If there was a tail stripe, than these would be perfect. The color balance is much better than the old ones. The old had a little too much black. (Of course, it's still miles better because it has a tail stripe, and I don't think I'm going to get past the fact that the current ones don't but...)

Won't crush you but there was no need to change, it's a classic and Ill bet that as loyal as Devil fans are, they will not buy the new jerseys for a little tweek. Hell, a lot of people still wear the Christmas jerseys to the game. Their uniform was always considered classic.

I guess this belongs in unpopular opinions, but I like that logo, and I really liked the alternate uniform they had last year (but the shoulder yoke was too big)

I really feel like the Preds yellow jerseys are a navy shoulder yoke away from being alright.

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.

Was never a fan of these uniforms when they were in play but comparatively speaking, they look masterful.  Even the piping and panels look distinctive in comparison to the sheer blandness of the current set.

They just need hem stripes to match the sleeves.  When almost everyone else has gone away from the Edge-esque practice jersey, they went to it.

Id prefer them to go back to this if they do an alternate
