  1. We still haven't seen the full stadium series uniform including pants/helmets/gloves officially. The leak had blue pants, and a blue helmet would make sense with that. But in all the promo photos everyone is wearing black pants and accessories (including gloves). So I wouldn't be surprised if they trot these out with their standard black pants/helmets/gloves. They look a lot better in the promo shots than they did in the leak, but I still think they look ridiculous. I'm definitely going to buy one, though.
  2. Seeing how they utilize a base color that literally no one else uses, I'd say they are very unique.
  3. Because those people usually have no actual knowledge of design principles and no basis for that accusation. It's like me criticizing NASA because they took the same route to the moon again. How lazy and boring of them.
  4. I stand by what I said. It’s not a terrible identity, but it gets way too much praise. The Stars look their best right now. The only thing I’d change is to put a Texas shoulder patch in place of the roundel logo, and then give me a black alternate with g/b/w/b/g striping like their original Dallas set.
  5. The Dallas Stars tried to forget about Minnesota before they even left Minnesota. Why would they throwback to those years? Plus the North Stars identity has to be the most overrated identity in hockey. There’s no need for anyone to do a North Stars throwback.
  6. I see my Colorado/Mountain design that I did like 10 years ago all over the place. Etsy, a shirt in K-Mart a couple years ago, and there’s even a dispensary in downtown Denver that has a sticker of it on their window. I realize it’s a super common design to do for anything Colorado related, and I have no issue with people doing their own version. What irks me is when people just straight lift mine and use it for their Etsy shop. Especially because they always steal the first draft version and not the updated one. At least use the better looking one.
  7. Slate numbers aren't terrible.
  8. I never understood the 'hard on my eyes' argument that the Oilers royal/orange combos seem to bring up. Maybe my eyes aren't as sensitive to shades of orange as every one else's. But, it's a deep royal blue and a muted orange, nothing eye-searing about either of those colors. If anything, the current shade of orange they use is hard on the eyes.
  9. Wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for a hockey rink template that includes the boards, like below. Willing to pay for the template if need be. My google searches have come up empty.
  10. In most cases I like when teams do that. 100% stripe consistency is a little boring to me. The current Maple Leafs both do a fantastic job with stripe consistency while not just slapping the same design everywhere. Their sleeve stripes match their sock stripes, and their hem stripes match their pants stripe.
  11. Unpopular opinion, but I'm a huge fan of hockey uniforms that have the numbers on the shoulders. This is the best Oilers uniform, ever.
  12. Other than mountains (which, even though us native Coloradans like to think we invented mountains, are very much a huge part of Calgary's culture as well) nothing says Avalanche or Colorado at all. Everything pretty clearly says Calgary Flames. They could probably come up with a more unique C+F or just C mark for the middle. But regardless, this should be the replacement for those stupid shoulder flags.
