Ugh...

The silver/white gradient on the logo looks so good on the black base in this photo. If they would use silver/white hem stripes and sleeve stripes with blue hems and cuffs, and call it a day, I don’t think anyone would be disappointed.

It’s not all bad that silver logo looks pretty badass in that photo imo.

I'm in the minority here, these could be better yes but I love it.  The league has a ton of red and/or blue teams but ONE black and silver team!  I'd be a fan if these colors were official.  Black, silver and white says "lightning" to me way more than blue and white.

Is that an actual gradient or is the logo reflective.

Daryl Reaugh trying to put himself over by being too clever by half, well I never!

It’s reflective.

It’s actually just a sublimated gradient on a shiny twill base. The effect turned out pretty nice. Much better than I expected.

 

Reflective would be great, though. Perfect team to do it for.

Interesting. Were there any other options (pattern-wise) considered,

Early on there probably was, but they didn’t use any of that stuff. This design came in later and was heavily driven by the team.

I don't have a massive problem with it. Sure I don't think it's very creative or traditional but at least they're embracing black which I think we all agree should be apart of the current home set.

There are better ways to embrace black than this. Getting rid of blue just to go full black seems to be zero sum.

Yeah of course there are better ways, but I like the fact that they're acknowledging black as opposed to completely ignoring its existence.

 

I also don't find the black alternates anywhere near as offensive as Carolina's cringe-worthy thirds.

Apparently, based on the article, people are buying it up.

 

One redeeming thing is how the logo renders in this "uniform system" (love that term ;) ).

 

Could the whole thing be saved by wearing the blue pants??? Something to brighten this up. I don't really get the whole head-to-toe black look they are going for along with the Sharks. But I'm probably not the person they're marketing to, as I'm an established fan.

That's funny because that's not even the brightest yellow in sports.

Flyers have made changes to their alternate jersey helmets. Previously, the helmets were all black, and had white numbers outlined in orange. Starting today, the black helmets have white straps, and black numbers outlined in white, which now match the numbers on the jersey. Not sure of the reason for the change. (Also the team wears orange branded gloves with the black jerseys, but Giroux still wears the standard white branded ones)
