I’ve always been a proponent that the Capitals Edge look was a solid modern design, but the Adidas switch really hurt these jerseys. The ‘boxier’ template gives much less of a ‘swooping’ impression that the piping on the previous template accentuated. And the piping not tapering towards the collar makes the piping appear thinner and inconsequential. And of course the piping doesn’t start from the collar anymore but just randomly interrupts.

While I disagree that the Capitals' Edge look was ever good (the pre-Edge look (by which I mean their white jersey because that black jersey was hot garbage) was their best jersey ever, fight me) you're right about the Adidas change making it worse. The same thing happened to the Kings and Blue Jackets too. Much like the Capitals, their final Edge look wasn't good but Adidas made them both worse.

If that's its father than this has got to be its grandfather:

This logo was from a Buffalo PR campaign from the 80s.

The variety of colour schemes in this playoffs is great. I count 10 different primary jersey colours, and almost all of the first-round matchups are between 2 distinct looks (other than CBJ-WSH, which are inverted versions of each other).

So I saw this going around on Twitter.

 

I was under the impression that there were the black horns under the shoulder yoke, but is the negative space supposed to be buffalo head as well?

Should've kept the blue and gold.

Classic example of “too clever for its own good.” Not enough people walk around in a full Christ the Redeemer pose.

Learn something new everyday. Never noticed that about the Buffalo jersey. Usually just drawn into the crest.

I think they usually stitch the crests. I mean they do sublimate now but I don’t think that was a thing then.

I do think the "in situ" look was also good, so no harm there IMO. However, I haven't actually seen a designer or the team say that was the intention. I think it's plausible and maybe probable, but not confirmed.

I can recall a time someone said the exact same thing here and everyone said “stop reaching”.

I think you’re going to have to elaborate.

Maybe the Leafs logo on the main Jumbotron is the retro logo and not the slightly modified current day logo? I can't say for sure.

A re-color would be a beautiful generational bridge marrying both era's

Yep, that’s it.  I didn’t notice it the first time either and wouldn’t have noticed if you hadn’t pointed it out.

Pretty sure that was me...and I admit I've been equal parts amused and frustrated to see so many people responding with "oh yeah...I totally see that" this time around.

It's a good thing that Army and Vegas seem to be on the path of settling this, but it's going to a mouthful next season when the P.A. announcer goes "Here are your 2017-18 Stanley Cup Champions, Vegas, we are not affiliated with the Army, Golden Knights!"

 

 

 

I am officially on the band wagon.  Watching them in the playoffs, I think they should switch the black pants for grey, at least on the road.  I still hate the white gloves.
