  1. Saw it mentioned on reddit, but I thought I would reiterate: This mark is devoid of black.
  2. I would be very surprised if there wasn't one. The team is going to drag this fight out with Glendale as long as possible.
  3. Found at a Ross in Dallas for $7.99
  4. Responding to this here, since it's technically a playoff logo set for the 2014-2015 season. Anybody happen to know the font the league is using for the year numbers? It looks familiar, but I can't place it.
  5. What would a truly mirrored Columbus home uni look like? With White shoulder-arm stripes instead of navy?
  6. The Kachina, Spiritual beings from the cultures of the American Southwest. I really liked the Coyotes original branding. The whole thing really paid homage to the Southwest. At the time of the relocation, I thought the Coyotes identity did better to represent the location than the bland Red/White/Blue identity of the Jets did in Winnipeg. Just look at the Coyotes original logo and compare it to the pictures I posted above. It was an amazingly clever way of tying Hockey to the history of the culture in Arizona.
  7. From what i've heard here, the new owner despises it. And from looking at nhluniforms.com, the first year the owner had full control, he dropped the jersey with the primary logo, leaving the Dallas script jersey as the primary and only home/away until he could rebrand I thought I read they couldn't find a way to make green and gold/the old logo work/look good with the new jersey design. Although maybe you're and that was just said to appease Dallas fans who didn't want the only logo they've ever had changed. It has been said before that the main reason they dropped gold was the disparity between golds in differing pieces of merchandise. I owned a hat that had the old logo on it with a "metallic" gold that can only be described as a dirty bronze, especially compared to the crest on the authentic uniform I have with its shimmery gold embroidery. The team dropped gold because with silver, you either get metallic silver or flat grey. No room for error when they license to third parties. Yeah but the Stars weren't the only team in pro sports wearing metallic gold. Other teams have no problem using it. Ottawa's used gold pretty well since 1992. The Stars could have worked gold in there somewhere. A little gold trim on those new unis would be incredible. The Stars aren't the Ottawa Senators. The team wanted uniformity in all facets of their brand, including merchandise. This is why they dropped the gold in favor of silver. ..cue the "BUT, OTHER TEAMS USE IT" response ad nauseam.

  9. then that's REALLY over-thinking something. Plenty of other teams makes those gold/yellow colors work.
  10. Management pretty much came out and said at the reveal the reason they dropped gold in favor of silver was keeping the identity uniform in all forms of merchandise. I own older stars merch with gold that varies from bright, shimmery metallic gold to dark, horseradish mustard brown. Silver is either shiny or it's grey.
  11. And the blue was a lighter shade, If I remember correctly.
  12. The socks look identical to the Bruins alt's socks, and they don't match the arm stripes. I know it would be difficult to have these socks perfectly match the arm stripes(yellow top, black bottom), but at the least I wish they would mirror the waist stripes.
  13. The best thing about the Lightning identity I miss are the armpit stripes.
  14. So, do we consider the new alts a rip off of a rip off? For the sake of brevity, I think we can all settle on simply calling them "bad".
  15. It's not bad, I don't "not" like it. On another note: There's a reason the "weagle" is on the shoulders.
  16. Bias aside, do you honestly believe the Lightning's uninspired roundel is better than the Stars lackluster effort? There's one point I'll give the Stars, they have enough faith in their target market to assume they'll know that the Dallas Stars are a hockey team. Absolutely, it's way better IMO. As for their target market, they didn't even average 15,000 per home game last year finishing 28th in the league. You went there not me. Lol, someone seems a little upset to immediately go spouting attendance numbers.

  18. They tried that. It sucked.That's very true. I would like to see them try again though, but, I sure as hell hope it wouldn't be a boring ripoff of another team like the Panthers did with their last third jersey. That was a Penguins ripoff. I was under the impression it was a move from upper management in an effort to secure sponsorship from JetBlue, albeit a move that failed to do so.
  19. I'll agree with you about St. Louis and Minnesota, but Chicago? Crawford has a cup and a Jennings and people still downplay the guy, that has to be rough.
  20. Awfully presumptuous of them to start plans for what they'll wear in the playoffs with the off season they've had.
  21. And then Mike divorced her, remarried, and has two twins.
  22. The first one's on Netflix streaming right now. I watched it for the first time as an adult... Coach Bombay is a real a-hole. It's hard to root for him. The Mighty Ducks and D-2 are both on Netflix. It's a fun look back... And I thought I heard a story where it was supposed to be a little darker and grittier before Disney made it the child-friendly product we saw. I mean, the man was arrested for a DUI and you're going to let him coach children for his community service? --- But speaking of Ducks and actual jersey things, I think we can fully and truly put to bed the gold/orange number trim speculation. This from the Ducks' Facebook page: Is it just me, or do those sleeve numbers looked photoshopped? Specifically near the serifs on the 5 and the 1, and the general black outline around them both.
  23. Okay, so it wasn't a double post.. Ill re-type what I thought I had up then. It's hard to call the current look better than the Star patterned uniforms, because of all of the success the team had wearing them. Countless playoff appearances, highlighted by two finals trips and a Stanley Cup make them hard to find fault in. But strictly because the team dropped their relatively bright shade of Kelly in favor of Forest Green during the 90's era of "Black for Black's sake", and went so far as to rip off an All-Star game uniform to get the design, I would call the modern look the better one. To sum up my post: Is better than: (That all being said, if the current management were to bring back a "fauxback" of the Cup era sweaters with Victory Green and Silver in place of Forest Green and Mustard gold for something like an Outdoor game- I would not be against that at all.)
  24. Though I'm more than grateful that the team is wearing the same(-ish) shade of green again.. This look: ..is miles ahead of this one: And light-years better than this one: ...even the old man agrees:
