  1. There was zero reason for this conversation to degenerate into what it has. And for those complaining about another Canucks discussion; they're getting three new jerseys next season, I think that makes it acceptable.
  2. What I mean is, it's not unheard of to see green ice in the Western-Canadian wilderness. So going with the recolour Andrew suggested could work.
  3. That's actually a really good idea. Ice can be green, especially in Canada, so I see no issue there. Unsure if the use of the white keyline means ditching the silver entirely.

    I see nothing wrong with this, especially with the return of the shoulder patches. Getting rid of them was a particularly boneheaded decision.

    They should have never changed their 1997-to-2007 look, though the current home is certainly close enough. Hopefully the new road is just a white version and they don't try anything cute.
  6. The Orca isn't what you'd consider a classic logo but that doesn't mean it's entirely without merit. The Haida Art style is eye catching, the silver highlights are striking and it just looks more professional than any of the other options. Hearing that the 'C' was inspired by collegiate art and that Trevor Linden was instrumental in the design process puts it in a better light as well. You remove the script and the jersey no longer looks cut-and-paste. The numbers don't feature green so who says the primary logo has to. The green stripes are bold enough to keep everything balanced and grounded.
  7. But their namesake isn't represented on their primary crest! They should probably replace the Spoked-B with a cartoon bear in a roundel right away.
  8. Or they could just fix the collar, drop the script and end up with one of the nicest jerseys in the league .
  9. Well, I think we can safely say the Orca is finally losing the arched-script. As for the logo itself, colour me impressed. Simplicity is effective in this case.

    Ditching the black was the right move but this photo is precisely why I can't get behind the Blue Jackets current uniforms. Just highlights how ridiculously thin the striping is. And why they scaled down the sleeve-stars is anyone's guess.
  11. +1. A rare case where the addition of black takes a colour scheme from good to great.
  12. No, I definitely don't want a stealth look. Having a jersey with logos and striping that disappear into a void of black is a bad idea... The uniform looks fine up close but from a distance it doesn't look much better than Tampa's new alternate. And it's a shame because the Team and Adidas did some good things. The circuit-board striping is an inventive touch and the decision to bring back and update the original 'fin' was long overdue. Still, the contrast issue turns it into more of a lateral move than an upgrade. Definitely guilty of that, my bad. Complaint still stands.
  13. I'm noticing a pattern too. A pattern that has Adidas spending more time on trendy embellishments than the actual design of their jerseys. How much better would the "stealth" stealth jerseys look if they'd taken contrast into consideration, how improved would the Hurricanes alternate look if "storm grey" wasn't confined to the yoke and how much better would Tampa's alternate look with some blue and white striping. Make solid design first, then worry about the embellishments.
  14. It shows. Their home and roads have never looked better in spite of not matching. I just hope they aren't thinking of going the black-for-black's-sake route when they have the opportunity to make a vastly improved version of the Iron-Range Reds.
