OK so the Predators appear to be wearing mustard and the Red Wings are now in maroon. Either the pictures are darkened or something is up. Could this mean that the Oilers aren't in navy blue after all? Discuss.

 

Basically that. Darkened promo photos are edgy and cool and sports.

This is basically what happened when the VIkings teased their unveiling in multiple photos over days; the yellow appeared to be a metallic gold and the purple a darker shade. People started freaking out, and getting exciting or disappointed, but when the uniforms were actually unveiled the colors were normal, it was just a result of how the photos were presented/filtered,.

Here's a guess at what I think Colorado and Minnesota will unveil

(sorry for the shameless plug lol)

FITY

 

Anyway, I feel that there will be some red on the Minnesota home, and that it will come in the form of the Stadium Series striping. Also, I think that Colorado will be navy instead of light blue, and incorporate the mountain striping on the hem (but not on the sleeves - that would be too much, IMO)

I'd hope the Avalanche would go in a different direction, though it's very plausible.

I really like your Wild prediction, though I'd tweak it slightly (shameless plug 2.0):

I am taken aback by how tastefully Adidas integrated some flare into the Vegas gold... and is that heather grey!? I'm not used to liking things.

That ones not bad, from habsfan1.  I feel like Minnesota will still not have matching home and roads. I doubt they'd change the road one. Why they can't just make the matching road we all want is beyond me. I made one as well for the EA game...

It's clear in their teaser that the Avalanche still has the normal light blue (whatever the official name is). I'd expect there to still be black pants and gloves.  Avi's concept is a fair guess, but maybe they'll surprise everyone and do something different than reusing their original or previous alternate jersey designs. 

 

I know, big maybe.

Am I nuts or does the tail on the Devils logo look different? Maybe it's just because I've never examined the tail on it's own.

If that wouldn't be THE most overly-detailed, over-thought, mish-mashed, complete hodgepodge of a logo in modern NHL history I don't know what would be tbh.

 

This is the problem with trying to please a fan base who is so stupidly intent on constantly screaming for what they want their identity to look like. You end up with crap like this, potentially. They'd be better off ignoring everyone, forever, and just sticking with the Orca. At least it's a competent logo.

The Minnesota signature striping (X thin, Y thin, X thick) does not work anywhere but a hem. On sleeves, socks, or, perish the thought, a chest stripe, it looks frustratingly imbalanced. Just put the stripes on the other side geeeeeez.

It would also be the best damned logo the Vancouver Canucks ever had.

I wonder if Minnesota would do something like green under the wheat stripe and red above it, so the jersey goes red-wheat-green from top to bottom. I actually don't think I'd mind that for some reason.

It looks like it may have been reshaped slightly as compared to this picture off of a authentic Reebok throwback.

Everyone making concepts based off of darkened pics of slivers of logos is just being ridiculous. No one can extrapolate anything about the Wild beyond having green sweaters with a wheat chest stripe of some kind. 

 

Everyone just needs to take a deep breath and calm down. It's only a week.

S'alright.

 

Is this an in-game custom or do we have our first leak?

 

It's a jersey from the create-a-team portion of the game. Nothing confirmed.

Not sure. I got it off of Twitter somewhere. Just for the record, I didn't make it.
