NHL 2018-19

Recommended Posts

Late to the party, but I'm seriously bummed if that is the final product for Tampa Bay. I had no expectation that they would be as out-there as the Thunderstorm jersey from the 90s, but considering how nostalgic they got last season for the 25th season, I expected they might do something to at least evoke the 2004 Cup-winning sweater. That sweater with the current logos would look great as an alternate.

OK, it does look nicer in real life and on a person.  One thing that's bugging me with all of the descriptions i've seen of it is saying it's based on the jersey they wore with that B logo in '32-34.  It's really the jersey from '26 - '32 (modified for modern times and arm numbers) and the logo from '32 - '34.  Which i guess is fine.  They've already used the bear with arched text above it for their current alternate logo and the last Winter Classic they were in.  I would have just preferred they went all in on the '32 - '34 jersey.  One of the best they've had.

 

I'm curious what the rest of the uniform will be like.  It appears solid brown gloves simple white branding.  sock striping will be key.  Pants i'd think would be solid as well but who knows.  haven't seen any photos of that yet.  

 

Thank god it's not vintage white though.

Should have made the hem stripes even thickness. Two thin/one huge thick/one kinda thin is pretty jarring when the sleeve stripes are equal.

I disagree. One, it’s accurate, and two, the hem coordinates well with the yoke this way. The yoke would look completely out of place if the hem stripes matched the weight of the sleeve stripes.

 

I like small, subtle improvements that bring the old marks into the present day, but I’ve honestly never been a huge fan of the neo/faux-throwback mashup thing that the Winter Classic had become, so it’s refreshing to see a more true-to-the-past throwback design. I wish they would have gone with the proper crest for this jersey (side note: the B here is actually from their current logo, not the original uniform), but there was concern that it was too similar to their original crest, which they wore for their last appearance in the event. Can’t win ‘em all.

 

That Cubs patch could have made a really cool captain C or sleeve number, though. Wish I woulda thought of that one back then.

I like the design, but a Bruins jersey without a spoked B never feels right to me. I know there's historical precedent and this is better than the arch-bear. But still. 

 

Also I want another yellow one.

I think the Lightning jersey would be a lot better if the gradient was more pronounced and also was on the waist. 

 

If it's legit, I think it would be a lot better if they folded it up neatly, tossed it into the garbage can, light it on fire, and start over again. There's nothing that can be done to make them even close to respectable.  Hard to believe anything can top the Oilers original edge jersey for the top spot in the craptastic top 10, but this certainly will.  If it's legit, maybe they'll come to their senses like the St. Louis Blues did all those years ago and not actually go through and wear them.

 

As for the Bruins Winter Classic, it's a good looking uniform and it might be the only jersey I really want to see up close because honestly, it looks black, not brown to me.

The images make it look black, don't notice any brown in there, even dark brown...

Someone who saw it at the first leak, may have been Chris on icethetics, said it was definitely a dark brown, and darker than the one they used for their first Winter Classic.

Really nice jersey but that’s now three fauxbacks in three winter classics for the Bruins.

 

You’d think for a team with so many jerseys in their history, they could do something closer to a real throwback like Chicago generally does.

Because they will never, ever top the 91-92 throwbacks they did for the NHL's 75th anniversary.

Emblazoned onto the neckline are the years the Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup, paired with the classic hash marks of Notre Dame Stadium as a nod to the classic end zone pattern.

All the more reason to hate the fact that Adidas isn’t selling the MIC jerseys. Those are gorgeous!

I was hoping for white socks, because this is what they wore in 30's, but ok, black doesn't look that bad.

Both jerseys are amazing for me even If I'm tired of seeing Blackhawks in outdoor games.

Is the fat-faced kid with Chara actually on the Bruins or did he just win some kind of contest?
