Really like the Sabres here. If we're really going for desecration, I'd be curious to see the standalone buffalo on the home and away. It'd be quite the change

 

Not a bad idea....something like this?

that makes a big difference!  I was on the fence of the first attempt but that one seals it for me.  great job.  only thing i can think of is maybe replacing the buffalo logo on the pants with the crossed swords by themselves one they've recently used.

Even crazier, the buffalo from the current logo with an updated text inside, or just the updated logo, or Sabres, something “desecrated”

I think I'll leave Buffalo as-is, so let's move on to the next team...

 

 

Washington Capitals

 

v.1

v.2

These were very, very inspired by the Washington Wizards unis. I really think something like this could work well for the Caps and their brand. I started out with v.1 but felt that it was wayyyy too busy. So I simplified it a bit in v.2 but kept the general idea the same. C&C appreciated!

Agreed, v2 is better. I think I might like to see the blue and white flipped like he said too. At least for comparison sake but that might carry over some more consistency between home and road, plus white yoke on red jersey is kind of the Caps’ thing.

Definitely prefer V2, though I'd switch the yoke and stripe colours on the home jersey. Alt is perfect.

Here's a side-by-side comparison...

 

v.2a (navy yokes)

v.2b (white yokes)

Tbh I kind of like the first version better

Hm. Yeah. I don’t know. Maybe we’re looking at the wrong jersey?  What if you made the yoke navy and the stripe red on the road?  That would match the first one better. 

 

I dunno. It’s nice either way.

And we're back! Sorry it's been so long between posts, been busy with things. On to the next team...

 

 

Winnipeg Jets

 

v.1

v.2

I really wanted to take inspiration from the Thrashers' uniforms and combine them with the Jets' identity. That, and also I wanted to incorporate a "white out" uniform since the Winnipeg White Out is a historic thing for Jets' hockey. I think v.1 is a bit gaudy, so v.2 is a more simple version. Which do you all prefer?

I can't help but want you take  to the white out one step further and do white numbers and a white Winnipeg down the sleeves. EIther that or make the white in the chest logo grey that way all cresting matches

Lose the contrasting nameplate, and could I sell you on grey breezers?

Great feedback. How does this look in comparison? I think it works better.

 

v.1b

v.2b

To be honest, I think I like v.2b more than the first version. Thoughts?

Interesting. Kind of has a basketball uniform feel to it. 

 

I thought you might go the silver/navy gear route with the Oilers.

Now THAT is "desecrating" the Oilers. It would be a complete "desecration" if you used the 90's colors of the Oilers.

 

I suggest that you make the stripes on the home uniform white (as well as the stripes in the pants), while retaining the orange oil drops, to achieve color balance.

I get what you're saying, but changing the colors of the arm stripes on the home to white makes it stick out like a sore thumb. And changing the side stripe on the home to white wouldn't match the road or the pant design - my intention was similar to what @B-mer said, it's to evoke a similar look as a basketball/football uniform design.

 

On to the next...

 

 

New York Islanders

For the Islanders, I wanted to incorporate the fisherman style striping in some way while keeping their modernized brand (the NY logo, simplification, etc).
