^i feel like I’ve read that same exact post 20x in the NHL watch thread 

 

I can delete it if you like. 😀

 

Your green Johnny Canuck concept is very nice by the way. However, I was pointing out what the Canucks need to do in order to have a good strong brand because their current brand is a mess, considering all the potential they have.

You’re good! I definitely agree with you that their current identity lacks cohesion, I’m really just looking for comments and criticism to what I’ve posted and not so much the current direction of the team in question. But I do appreciate your follow up post!

Thanks! The "updated" original Stick In Rink was my work. Lol.

 

Actually, with your Johnny Canuck concept, I would stick with the blue helmet and add blue bordering to the block font.

Up next...

 

Anaheim Ducks

 

Prediction:

 

8y6H5UJ.png

 

99.9% sure they'll be resurrecting the pre-Adidas orange alternate

 

 

Wish List:

 

HO0dfZt.png

 

While I do like the orange alternate, I feel like they're missing the boat by not blending together their current and past identities - which there could be countless color combinations

 

 

 

Calgary Flames

 

Prediction:

 

1pzmjXM.png

 

Much like the Devils, the Flames always seem to have a reason to pull out their throwbacks. Wouldn't be surprised at all if they brought them back again as full-time alternates.

 

 

Wish List:

 

t6hFdXE.png

 

A nice change of pace while incorporating elements from their past uniforms. I think darkening the shade of red closer to a maroon makes the yellow stand out even more.

Your wishlist alternate for Anaheim needs to become their full time look.  Beautiful combination of eras.

Up next...

 

 

Philadelphia Flyers

 

Prediction:

 

DGuaUkF.png

 

It has been confirmed that the black Stadium Series jersey will be returning...

 

 

Wish List:

 

RROFd2a.png

 

I really liked the premise of their 50th anniversary unis last season. With some small changes, it could be a strong alternate for the Flyers.

 

 

 

Carolina Hurricanes

 

Prediction:

Here's what I think they'll unveil after seeing the teaser video earlier this week...

 

 

Wish List:

 

vg7Lj2E.png

 

Heavily influenced by the Whalers (http://nhluniforms.com/Whalers/Whalers5.html). The owner has said they want to pay homage to the original team, so I wouldn't be surprised if something like this happens a little down the road.

Next up...

 

New York Islanders

 

Prediction:

 

5TX5ads.png

 

They're rumored to be bringing back the NY logo from their black unis, along with an orange base and blue yokes (although not sure if they'll go with their primary blue or navy)

 

 

Wish List:

 

Umw0IK5.png

 

Their Stadium Series jersey was a fan favorite, and I think it could be an excellent third with some slight alterations.

 

 

 

LA Kings

 

Wish List:

 

7Pz80aK.png

 

I think that Forum Blue will make its return...

 

 

Prediction:

 

7T386oC.png

 

Buttttt I definitely think the Kings need to be wearing a gray alternate to go along with their primaries. They've had a few different gray variations in the past, but this is a bit different while also honoring some uniform elements of the past. Also, I added a name plate....still don't understand why them and the Stars don't use one.

Toronto Maple Leafs

 

Prediction:

 

fwgcnse.png

 

The Leafs have such a strong uniform history, and they seem to like to bring back past uniforms as alternates. Wouldn't be shocked - or opposed - if they bring back their Winter Classic unis.

 

 

Wish List:

 

Y6NL6gA.png

 

A modernized version of their Arenas jerseys

 

 

 

Edmonton Oilers

 

Prediction:

 

AJsH8Md.png

 

My guess is that they ditch the light blue unis once and for all and bring in an all-navy uniform to match their current set

 

 

Wish List:

 

6bq03xS.png

 

Blending a few different eras together

Next up...

 

Pittsburgh Penguins

 

Prediction:

 

tPwT2cR.png

 

A throwback that fits in with their current identity (http://nhluniforms.com/Penguins/Penguins11.html)

 

 

Wish List:

 

GeV1Kcz.png

 

Something a little newer but with a classic feel that fits in well with their other uniforms

 

 

 

San Jose Sharks

 

Prediction:

 

kxh7uEe.png

 

San Jose is rumored to be bringing back their throwback, the fin-circle logo, AND the new screaming shark logo....could they all be on one jersey?

 

 

Wish List:

 

vvY4cLq.png

 

A bit more modern, but still has that classic Sharks feel

 

 

BONUS!

 

8Uqxfsg.png

 

Tbh, I couldn't decide between a teal or black version of this, so you guys get a bonus concept :)

 

 

 

The final installment of this series will be posted tomorrow, just in time for the draft!

Considering its the Sharks, their alternate will probably have some orange for whatever reason...I would love to see them adopt that black jersey. Gorgeous uniform. 

 

With the addition of a matching white jersey, I would love to see the Sharks make your teal uniform the primary and the black an alt. With the added silver and relegation of orange, I think that would be a great look for San Jose.
