  1. Today I learned: I think I'm the only person here who actually likes those Avs jerseys.... please don't hurt me.
  2. This is true and it comes up every time a team has an anniversary... most teams are recognizing the anniversary in years, not in seasons, so it doesn't really change. Take Columbus and Minnesota next season - their logos just say "20" with 2000-2020. Yes, they only played 19 seasons in that time, but it remains to be their 20th anniversary as franchises. That seems to be the league standard for all anniversaries post-lockout.
  3. The Ottawa rebrand scores a solid 8/10 for me - I'm ecstatic that the old logo is back, even if a modernized version (or that reworked alternate everyone loves) would have likely been a better choice, I'll take it. As a lifelong Sens fan, the 2D logo was always the Senators for me. the 3D one was cool, I didn't hate it, but it just felt like the team was wearing an alt logo full-time. It never felt right, and those jerseys were... not the greatest. Is the new stuff perfect? No. But it's a great starting point. The season after next is the team's 30th anniversary, so I'm sure we'll see a cool (red) third jersey with the "O" come back, and hopefully that shoulder S will be replaced by the heritage O permanently. Then they can just add the black sleeves to the away jerseys and there you go... leave well enough alone after that. For fans who may not be 100% pleased with the rebrand, remember... with this organization, they could have gone with something ridiculous like the shoulder S as their new primary. It's stupid decisions like that you can come to expect from the Sens, given the low bar they have set. So yeah, let us fans celebrate the rebrand for the sole reason that it is not a disaster.
  4. A parking garage? Nice, what's in the bag, new uniforms or crystal meth?
  5. That's ... kind of... boring. I'm not a big fan of this new trend of "using an outline of the state for an anniversary logo." It's cool once or twice, but when everyone and their dog/coyote does it, it starts getting overused. Especially where Arizona did that already with the 20th anniversary one. Also would have been cool to see a full kachina rebrand but... oh well, next year it is, I guess. It's totally coming, that much is pretty well guaranteed at this point.
  6. Yeah, it was actually revealed back in August but flew under a lot of people's radar and had not been seen since. t was part of a mail-out for season ticket holders...
  7. Hurray - though they should drop the black C as their third jersey, it's so out of place now and never made any sense to begin with. The C is on fire, fire isn't black. This shouldn't be that difficult.
  8. Looks good. At first I thought it was weird that they went with "Since 2000" instead of the usual numbers format "2000-2020"... but I guess that would have made for a few too many twos and zeroes, wouldn't it?
  9. That's a real shame about the black sleeves... was really hoping this chinese knockoff site from a few months ago had been accurate. I'm thinking this is a way better product than what we're going to see tomorrow: EDIT: Also weird that the original report in The Athletic said the away jersey had the black forearms... not sure who to believe anymore. The home jersey mockup is black with two red bands on the arms, encasing the numbers, and a single red stripe around the bottom. The away jersey is white with red bands on the arms and black forearms. It has a red stripe atop a black stripe running around its bottom edge. Hailey Salvian, The Athletic (July 13, 2020)
  10. Yeah, The away jerseys are a bit of a downgrade... I don't hate it, but again, just a pain when you get so close to a perfect set only to stumble short. Maybe I'll change my mind seeing them in action. The black is still beautiful and seeing the old logo back still makes me have sparkly heart-shaped eyes.
  11. Oh man, that black C stands out like a sore thumb... make it go away. I hate it when teams get so, so close to a perfect set and then... well, this happens.
  12. Dear Ottawa Senators: This is how you do a cool and fun jersey unveiling. Take notes.
  13. I'm surpised Arizona didn't go with the kachina coyote for the draft hats... despite the howling coyote being the primary, you don't really see it all that much anymore. Most stuff on their website and social media is all kachina. Even their new ads for the team store, and some new community stuff, is all done in the kachina style with the old logo... Something tells me 2020-21 will be the last season with the howling dog as the primary.
  14. I'm actually really digging this one. Very nice.
  15. While the site is being updated with the new Senators stuff, would it be too much to ask to go in and replace the ugly 25th anniversary logo with the one the team **actually** used in 2017? I don't know if it's the site's toronto bias doing on purpose to leave the ugly one, but the organization did change it after fan outcry and the final version was fine, and was the only one to ever appear on merchandise and on the player jerseys. Now, don't get me wrong, they can still screw up the 30th anniversary one in 2022, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it...
