To be completely honest, this would not be a bad option for the sharks.

Not bad...but why would they have the webfoot "D" on the shoulders of the jersey?  ?

 

(I kid, I kid.  I know it was just a quick mock-up of the front.)  

 

it looks awesome!

Front and center on the chest is the classic Mighty Ducks logo, sticks updated to be the current shade of orange the team uses and the triangle in silver in recognition of the “silver” 25th anniversary.

Uhhhhhhh...

I hate fighting this fight every time it comes up... the Mighty Ducks were not in teal. These are not the Sharks colors.

 

Mighty Ducks - Jade

 

Sharks - Teal

 

Not the same.

i know there's some faint cursing in this video, but my instant reaction is what the fans are chanting in this video:

That’s just them justifying using the silver triangle over the jade or gold.

Really, I’m coming around on them, but there’s two things that stick out.

 

1) The orange sticks. They stick out like a sore thumb. I get why you include them, but they bring too much attention to themselves.

 

2) The eggplant striping. It just gets lost, and that extra element muddies up the design. Eliminate the eggplant altogether or swap it for black (modifying the stripes as need be), and you clean up a lot. (Also, if you need to keep it, add a little eggplant/white striping to the yoke as well. There’s such a dissonance between the hem and the yoke.)

This reminds me of a concept you'd see on here.

You could always be like @hockey week and just call it purple and green, with a cruel comment about “Paul Kariya’s tears“ (before we learned that he was severely concussed at the time) and how people only love the identity because of nostalgia. I get that he was “bullied” by fans of the movies who “didn’t understand hockey,” but his attitude came off as both dismissive and gate-keeping.

 

I’m glad he and Octopus have stopped chiming in on the Ducks. I like real discussion of it, without assuming everybody who liked the old identity was a Disney shill/blinded by nostalgia. It added little to the conversation.

 

The third sweater is a messy hodgepodge, but it also demonstrates why the Ducks should start from scratch with their look. They’ve never had a solid set of logos that could stand up to time, instead opting to trend-chase. Just keep the name and a retro third, while rebooting everything else.

Oh wow, they are. I know teams don’t just use the exact same relative dimensions between the back and TV numbers, but the Ducks’ TV numbers are just jarring in how bulky they look.

 

I think its because they they were designed to go with the original wide-set back numbers. The current (taller) back numbers were designed for Stadium Series and then were adopted by the club for the home and road, so they’re probably more different than what you would normally see on any given team.

That is the correct number font. The Ducks' sleeve numbers are different from their back numbers.

 

I’d guess 90% of teams have different sleeve and back numbers. I’d also say that if it’s done well, you don’t even notice it.

This is what we get to remeber Hans? Everything goes to crap ever since Bombay retired and Banks was traded.

They’re not the same, but the way the jade and black are used make it look pretty Shark-y IMO.

 

It’s not like the colors are miles apart, either. Teal is jade with the blue cranked up a little bit.

Couldn't handle the main thread being Duckjacked? :P

 

Anyway, after sleeping on this thing; I like it. I appreciate what they were going for but they haven't quite nailed it. There are one too many colours and the combination of diagonal hemstripe and coloured yoke is a bit much. I feel that they should either have gone with eggplant as the body colour or, if the uniform has to be black? Ditch the eggplant stripes. I say that but I also kind of dig the subtle use of it, it looks better in some photos than it does others. I like it better after seeing Hebert wearing it, so, yeah.

 

It's a downgrade from the orange third, and yet it's still better than the regular set. As a one year anniversary thing it's fine. I'll be getting one. Heck, I'm almost tempted to make the trek to Anaheim just to see these in a game, might be my only chance to see the old colours in action.

I’d put good money on it that the main motivation for them going black is because they didn’t want to invest in new eggplant helmet shells and pants. How cheap.

 That has absolute zero to do with it.  It's black because that is now and has been their primary color, then mix in the colors from their history. 

It's that simple and nothing to read into.

Not a bad jersey in a vacuum, but what a waste of time considering how nice a straight-up throwback would have been.

You do realize the original jersey had 6 colors, right? (Eggplant, Jade, Silver, Black, White and Yellow).
