2013-2014 NHL Uniform & Logo Changes

Sorry, I just don't consider what the Kings have be "Bettman piping." When I read "Bettman piping" I think of piping that was introduced in the Edge roll out. The kind of piping the Aves, Sabres, Flames, and others came out with.

With the Kings' piping I see it as an evolution of the sleeve length yoke design, a variation on the designs used by the Maple Leafs, Kings, Flyers, and Rangers in the 1970s and 1980s.

No, the Kings definitely have Bettman Piping. The Avs have one of the two different variations of the Bettman Apron.

The Kings in no way have the Bettman Piping. B.P. is on the front of the sweater, the arm stripes the Kings and Avs have can be seen by the 79-90 Jets, the 72-92 Maple Leafs, and the 76-78 Rangers

Meanwhile this doesn't look to out of place and has no Piping.

We're arguing about the definitions of terms that we made up.

What the Kings use isn't far from what the Blue Jackets and Wild used before the EDGE. It's not "Bettman Stripes".

i never had a problem with the ducks uniforms or logo. i just hated the name "Mighty Ducks of Anaheim."

when they dropped that in favor of "Anaheim Ducks," they did a complete redesign that wasn't really needed. the old uniforms weren't the problem. i just didn't like the idea of the name "Mighty Ducks of Anaheim" being on the same Cup as the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, and the like.

Anaheim Ducks fits just fine though. the duck mask is actually one of my favorite sports logos in history, despite my distaste for the franchise.

I wonder how they came up with "Mighty Ducks" as the name for the movie in the first place. The fictional team is just called the Ducks and they're only referred to as Mighty Ducks once in the whole trilogy. Even at the end of D3 when Eden Hall has to change its name they don't become the Mighty Ducks of Eden Hall.

Because the ducks is a great name for a movie

To me, the Ducks original look is something that can really only be appreciated once it's gone. Bringing it back for one game made me realize just how great it was in the first place. The color scheme, the logo, it really all worked well together and was unique. Makes me miss seeing it on the ice on a nightly basis.

As a Florida Panthers fan, I have this to say:

Management, take a good hard look at what the Anaheim Ducks did for their 20th Anniversary throwback night. See where you failed in your own throwback night, and be aware that in two years, it's the 20th anniversary of the Panthers "Year of the Rat" run to the Stanley Cup Finals. Because of this, you'll get a second chance to make it right. Use Anaheim as a template, and do the right thing this time!

The Panthers are claiming they wanted to wear throwbacks for their 20th anniversary game, but that the NHL forbade them to do so because of "league marketing rules". As is the case with most things involving "The Producers" On Ice, I'm calling bull :censored: on this one.

So will the Ducks be using the white jersey from back them? I've always preferred that jersey over the eggplant one.

For all the hype about throwback night, it's really too bad that the Ducks will probably never wear their best look again:

(Dark, muddled, shimmery-shouldered, mesh-armpitted mess.)

(White and jade, passable-I-guess, shimmery-shouldered, mesh-armpitted mess.)

And we're all better for it. Yuck.

The only thing the white one had going for it was the prominent use of jade. I would've liked to have tried a jersey completely in jade, and this was close, but the shimmer, the mesh, the socks, yeesh.

They could've gone with a wacky, "90's radical" font like they did on the failed 3rd uniforms

Futura?

If the Ducks ahd slimmed down a few of those shoulder stripes so that there weren't so many things going on, I think the look could have been salvaged.

Whether you refer to it as Bettman piping or not, it still looks bad.

Personally, I always liked the old Ducks' look. It was nice to see those jerseys in action again.

I think he was referring to the Wild Wing jersey.

I've always wondered, why doesnt the NHL do throw back nights a few times a season? MLB has classic uniform days - NBA has numerous variants of jerseys. NFL features teams that use old jerseys (Tampa Bay etc).

I'd love to see the NHL do a 80's or 90's week.

These were pretty nice. Trying to remember back, but didn't they wear these more than their original set for a while. The only thing I never got was why they switched to the black helmet/pants. Anyone know?
