NHL 2018-19

Recommended Posts

I was with everyone else at first with the Bruins' black socks, I tweeted at the Bruins to change them back the second the pictures hit the net... but I really don't mind them now.  It does look good, it's just that the Bruins wore gold socks forever. I take it now as maybe the team didn't put as much importance in it as we all do/did. 

 

The update to the numbers and name type were a big upgrade.

I feel like they just introduced black socks with the away uniform so that they can introduce a yellow jersey with yellow socks  as an alt coming soon...

They are so far overdue for a nice yellow alternate. The original Winter Classic sweater should’ve stuck around!

I didn't notice this until you mentioned it. It really is a massive downgrade.

Especially with the stitch to a single-outlined number. The old-school number would look great with the gold socks, while the previous double-outlined number would look good with the black socks. 

 

But that’s looking at the socks and numbers in a vacuum. From an overall perspective, the gold socks look much better as they balance out the B’s gold shoulder yokes.

Canucks are holding a  fan vote on what throwback the team wears for their 50th anniversary season.

I have a hard time imagining it won’t be the skate, but maybe the Flying V will pull ahead due to sheer meme-iness.

They should just do all three. Do the Flying V because it's so iconic (albeit for bad reasons) and do the Skate and original Orca because they both look good.

I agree that they should do all three, but if it's only one, I'd go with the skate.

I’d love to finally have high-resolution digital images of the Flying V set. You can only get so much out of high-ISO color photographs taken in crummy lighting conditions.

Skate please. My Bure jersey no longer fits and would love to have one in the current template

I was surprised to learn that those were orange, yellow, and black. I thought it was red! But it didn't become red until the early '90s when their uniform manufacturer stopped making that shade of red-orange or they switched to someone who couldn't.

CCM never stopped producing that shade. That red-orange was basically an orange and used by the Oilers, Islanders and Flyers. However, CCM screwed up the Athletic gold by making it an eggnog yellow.

The flying V for sure! Even though it's generally regarded as an ugly duckling  - it's still to this date the most unique uniform design and will forever be linked to the Canucks very first playoff success.

I voted for the Flying V! I really hope that wins... and beside they've already done the flying skate a couple of years ago and the orca logo is still around.

The Skate logo was what they wore in my formative years with Linden, Bure, Courtnall, MacLean, etc. so that's what they always look right to me in. 

 

Unpopular opinion but I hate the current color scheme and logo.

You know, major media outlets should really consult us before they do things like this:

 

 

A few errors in this one.

Yeah, that last question was a bit flawed. Wouldn't the answer be only two teams: technically the current Winnipeg Jets along with the Vegas Golden Knights? The Red Wings have changed their logo slightly over the years and the Flyers did use that horrible silver/grey accented logo in the mid-2000s on an alternate jersey.

 

Also, that host was unbearable. WE GET IT PRIDECOMESBEFORETHEFALLSHUTUP

Right, the Wings have changed (plus there's the Falcons/Cougars years). And if we're not counting franchise moves or we're not counting those little adjustments like Detroit and Philly, the Devils haven't changed their front logo either, under those technicalities. And again again, if the're allowing those Red Wings technicalities, are you not allowing the Canadiens? 

 

And the Coyotes also have the letters on the other side of the chest. And teal isn't green. It's teal.

 

And yeah, the banter can be a little too antagonistic in those videos. Like, as a dude, I get the ragging on each other banter, but the host and then the one dude in the Bob Ross shirt I always find extra annoying.

The rules on the question included alternates and excluded Winter/Heritage Classic & Stadium Series jerseys for the logos... So i guess technically they were counting all those 100 year anniversary jersey they had a few years ago.
