  1. I've never heard the flag thing, but they did use these for their first few seasons. I was told it was a little soccer-centric nod to the very popular soccer teams of the area. Even wearing it, you'd probably never notice the stripes unless you're in very bright light.
  2. I think, like the Montreal Canadiens (who ever thought those two looks would be in the same thought?), they are a BALANCE team. Red and blue are in (relatively) equal amounts, and that is part of the look. And having one color weigh heavier at home or heavier on the road doesn't mean anything, because look at the New York Giants.
  3. This is why there's a golden triangle in the Penguins logo from Day 1 That confluence of the rivers, where Downtown Pittsburgh actually is, is called the Golden Triangle. It's always been in the Penguins logo, it even was on the shoulders in the 90s (that's officially why that design had those shoulders), it's why the Steelers had that batman cape jersey set in the 60s. The triangle has meaning, and it's Pittsburgh's it shouldn't be a keystone for the whole state...stupid Flyers... But yeah, the triangle matters, and it should be there, even if it's redundant in color. ...I also think the penguin looks too lanky without it, the boundaries of the triangle always help break up the look of the long legs, imo.
  4. The red jersey is perfect. I'm super impressed how much the white with the laurels works, and how I've never seen it before. The white loses me. Too much red, the balance is off. Make more of that black, and you have a winner. For the third...I think the black stripe in the middle has to be equal in size to the other two stripes, or pinstripe thin. But the red...the red is really impressive.
  5. It wasn't people who were into hockey, but people who used it to mock and hate on hockey, there is a distinct difference. I really don't bother with needing "Pittsburgh gold" versus any other name, most of it is useless verbiage put out by the manufacturers. Unless it's a distinction like, athletic gold versus vegas gold, why bother getting into an argument over that? So many of the colors end up identical in the fabric now anyway.
  6. I was at the NHL store in New York City just the other day, and I asked about it, and the employee there said I was about the 50th one that day. I have friends who were very excited until they realized it was black, that took some wind out of the sails, but yeah, people want this, and I totally think it's nostalgia for that logo (and the times it evokes) and nothing more.
  7. long ago was that? I'm trying to think the last time I was actively on here. And the irony of being a snob over names of colors while accusing others of being dismissive and gatekeeping is THICK. If you're that hurt over calling it purple and green, and enough to tag me in it, then I feel absolutely justified in lobbing shots at you in your ivory tower of color naming specifics. I stand by everything I've said, and all love for this third is nostalgia-only, because top to bottom, this jersey is a mess.
  8. So why would ANYONE buy one of these jerseys now? By advertising to the point where there isn't even a team logo, they have to be hurting jersey sales - unless they were already so tiny that the teams don't care.
  9. It might look better, but those three stripes, despite technically being a manufacturer's mark, are part of the look of the jersey. For the first time that I know of, we have a visible difference in appearance between replica and authentic, not just a difference in quality. That's a dangerous precedent set.
  10. Am I the only one that sees that Adidas collar NHL logo notch and think
  11. Buffalo is going to blow it, again. So close and yet so far with every unveiling. Do a white version of the old 40th anniversary jerseys, keeping the blue between the gold stripes. Blue shoulders? fine. Buffalo script with the colors inverted or MAYBE that new leaping Buffalo logo, and be done with it. I'm already disappointed.
  12. I agree. Red jersey, introduction of silver, light-colored O, it's too Ohio State-looking. Their team could wear that tomorrow and there would be few questions. ...and I LIKE the O. Canadiens had a chance to diagonal stripe and be interesting. They blew it. Silver additions to the 100th jersey look like crap...again.
  13. PERFECT Arizona, except the logo. Switch it to something else, something stronger, and that's a 10/10. Buffalo, I'd take the blue jersey and make the white stripes gold. The Sabres love running with a two-color look. These are awesome. Keep it up.
  14. I think I'm the only person here who legitimately hates the Jackets' new socks. They're too minimalist, it isn't going to show up on tv, and I don't really care that they match.
  15. The secondary logo is good. it would be a better primary than what they have, and it would be a pretty weak primary. This will make all sorts of "worst of" lists in a decade or less.
