So, we’re not going to talk about Penguins at Flyers 2019 Stadium Series? Okay.

 

Maybe because we're a long way off from seeing any uniforms for that.

Didn't they have a Stadium Series game earlier this year? Why do they get another one so soon?

When they announced last year's game in Pitt, they said the plan was always to have Philly host the matchup the following year outside (in honour of both teams' 50th anniversaries). Not sure why they didn't do it this season though. 

 

I'm still surprised the NHL hasn't tried to capitalize on last year's playoffs by having the Preds play outside at Nissan Stadium, especially when the Blackhawks would be the most logical opponent.

I really like that.  Maybe even more than their regular look.  

 

Going to be out of town for the Winter Classic. Bit depressed, because this is going to be an amazing-looking game. I promised my oldest I’d take him to his first NHL game this season, and this would have been a good one. 

 

For what it’s worth, I don’t think that mock-up is exactly accurate, but I’m with you. It’s a good look, and to be honest, I prefer the Rangers’ approach of doing a (mostly) true, accurate throwback instead of the historical mash-up/heritage-inspired approach the Sabres took.

We still talked a good while about the 2019 Winter Classic though...

 

A couple of pages of Pooh Bear jersey posts and people being fed up with the Blackhawks. That was pretty much it. With the Pens and Flyers, we just had this same matchup earlier this year, and they've both been in their fair share of outdoor games too.

 

But if you want the discussion then here's a starting point: The Flyers should bring back the cooperalls and I'm fed up with the Penguins :upside:

ordinarily, I’d agree.   But I love that Sabres uniform so much, I’m willing to overlook it.

The tweaks to the buffalo and sabers are really well done. It’s such a huge improvement over the current logo. I really hope they make this the primary next year.

I was able to grab this photo off the 'Chel shop webpage. Don't know if they've realized their mistake and taken it down yet.

Checks out - the sweater hasn’t been officially released yet, but some of the associated merchandise has, and it uses the same name treatment and stripe pattern.

The new circular ends of the sword handles look splendid, the slashes are now of correct proportion, the details of the revised buffalo silhouette have been fixed.

 

A+ job tweeking up a classic logo into the current era.

 

So much better than this...

Well, it was fun while it lasted. Until the Rangers called me out.

Well played.

 

I'm actually diappointed that wasn't the real thing, and was about to share my Unpopular Opinion that I like it better than the regular uniform. Oh well :P

Honestly, you’re probably very close. Well played though!

Fake?

 

Fake?!

 

A thousand curses upon your head, for deceiving us with this trickery. Mostly because I loved your concept so much. 😉

 

Did you get the name/stripe treatment from the caps?  

 

The only improvement I could see to your design would be to elevate the hem stripe a little bit, let some blue show at the hem. Like their alt:

I’ve never liked how the Rangers’ white stripe goes all the way to the hem. 

 

But well played, sir.  Well played.

They say this until the reveal. Jersey will probably suck because Adidas and people will hate it. Rangers will then claim they aren't a fashion company. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
