NHL 2017-18

Recommended Posts

This is related to an earlier post I made about the new NHL replica jerseys made by Fanatics, but this concerns the 'authentic' new NHL jerseys by Adidas themselves.

 

I have the same two Qs:

1) Has anybody had a chance to get one?

2) What is the quality like?

 

Just asking, in case I should try and get such a jersey in the future.

So this but replace NEW YORK with RANGERS.

Judging by the cap, it'll be plain white text with no outline on the front, white will replace cream, and the red/white/red stripes will be equal thickness.  I think that could produce a look different enough from that navy alt.

That event logo is beautiful.

Washington's logo is absolute :censored:. Nickname jerseys should be burned then burned again.

Are the Senators doing Detroit’s weird “Championship Years in the Stripe” thing?

 

Looks like it, which is rather perplexing since the team has won nothing.

First time I've seen Boston in action with the black socks. When I first heard I thought it'd be great, but I realize now how wrong I was!

Y’know, confuse the fans by telling them “Hey, we have championships we never won on our uniforms, we’re definitely that team that went bankrupt almost 100 years ago!”

They're celebrating the history of Ottawa hockey. No one with half a brain cell thinks it's the same Ottawa Senators. I hate when teams monkey around with history, this is just honoring an old team with a one off jersey. The whole event is a celebration of the league's 100 years.

Why are so many people clamoring for a full-time heritage look then?  The recent promotion of the =O= just comes off as a pathetic attempt to siphon the success of the silver-seven or worse; an admission that current incarnation of the Senators won't ever win a championship.

I think its because Ottawa had a decent uniform/identity at their debut and has only gone progressively downhill since then. People just want a change and the =O= is an easy thing to gravitate to.

I don't speak for other people but I honestly really like the heritage look and I will be disappointed if the Senators new away jersey next season isn't the vintage white 2014 Heritage Classic jersey. I agree that the =O= is a boring logo but I love the look of it on the Heritage jerseys. It suits the jerseys so well and I honestly love the look of the red, black, and beige barberpole jerseys.

I agree but they could have done something really great.  The updated, 2D-centurion on a vintage-white-less heritage template would honor the entire history of Ottawa hockey and allow the =O= logo to do what works; serve as a shoulder patch.

People can want to embrace the heritage look without pretending the new Senators are the old Senators.

Nor do I see embracing the =O= as a sign that they're admitting that the current team will never win anything. That's honestly preposterous.

Looks like the heritage sans hem stripes. Based on the other teasers probably a red version with the silver O.

How is it preposterous?  The current team has used a centurion for 25+ plus years, which is longer than the original team was even around for, and they're throwing their history away to use a double stroked, Times-New-Roman "O" for no other reason than to siphon the success of a team that hasn't been around in over 80 years.  Seems like admission of failure to me.

Some changes can be just about aesthetics and popularity, not every change has anything to do with sucess. The current 3D logo (and the 1999-07 version for that matter) hasn't been popular in Ottawa for a while.

And the original team was around for 50 years with the barber pole debuting in 1896 and a version of the O logo first appearing in 1900, so that point doesn't stand either.

I was hoping for this jersey (white one of course) for Habs:

But it looks like I need to wait for it again.

I don't know, people like it?

 

For the record that change would be taking a poor identity and dropping it to 31st in the league by a large margin. Simply not a strong enough mark or look to build an identity around.
