    Need the Avs to abort the blue helmets and jorts, go back to BFBSish

    Nope, no way.  The blue looks so much better.


    Burgundy helmets and burgundy pants would be perfect. It would create a much better balance with the blue trim. Because the Avs have a burgundy mountain hemline on their whites, I would stick with the blue pants with the whites and add blue number font as well.

    If I had to guess, I'd say the alternate jersey will be that "ice blue," possibly with the secondary anchor logo on the front.

    I love that ice blue!!!  I want all my gear in that color.  THAT'S the way to stand out from the league!


    Btw, that is not the final jersey, that was a placeholder when the branding launched.  So that's something to look forward to.


    An ice blue alternate for the Kraken would look amazing. I'd even make the helmets ice blue while sticking with the dark navy pants. A uniform matchup vs a team in royal blue or green(Wild) would be a can't-miss.

    I just love the navy blue and kelly green combo. I always imagined that look for the Canucks. 


    Anyway, I would go with "Abbotsford Aviators" because of Abbotsford's longstanding aviation programs.

    A navy version like this?

    Yes. Although personally I think it would look better without the orange sleeves (and possibly without the orange shoulders too)


    A navy blue Oilers uniform that uses the same template as the classic royal blue version would look beautiful. I would definitely keep the orange yokes and sleeves. Otherwise, it becomes just another generic navy uniform.

    I don't mind the fonts. It adds a level of continuity between the banners from the different eras. Also I the Agency font (or whatever it is) appears thicker and blockier on those banners than it does on the jerseys, and I think its an improvement.


    The Agency font is sterile and weak. Prior to the '07 Reebok rebrand, the Canucks had always used the traditional Athletic block font. What should've happened was continuing on with the block-font with an added green border.

    They would lose a lot of merchandise sales if they ditched silver and black.  

    Actually, quite the opposite. It was Gretzky and team success that sold Kings merchandise. Had the Kings kept the purple and yellow-gold but went back to the original crown sweaters or went with something like the retro reverse with the Chevy shield, the Kings would have sold far more merchandise.

    The Avs look so so good now.  


    The Avs should wear matching burgundy helmets and pants at home but blue instead of BFBS is a definite improvement.

    This makes me wonder how an extra red outline on the logo and numbers would look for the Flames on their road sweater. It would match the striping pattern, and probably keep the yellow from bleeding into the white jersey. It would pop like the black outline did on the old white, Reebok-era sweater.

    Yeah, this does work a lot better than the single-outline version IMO.


    The single yellow outline on the font and their crest is good enough. The Sabres have and the Bruins of the 70's to the early 90's also had a single yellow border on the font on their whites. The NFL Chiefs have the exact same bordering format and colours as the Flames. As long as the yellow isn't the main colour of the font on the whites(Minnesota Wild Retro Reverse) and the yellow is touching the dark coloured font as bordering is more than acceptable in my books.

    The contrast here is way better than expected. What a beautiful game.


    Very nice yellow-gold Bruins sweaters. I would have gone with yellow helmets. The Flyers are the dark-coloured team and their black helmets work, not the Bruins' black lids.

    Not a big hockey watcher, but came across some highlights from the Canucks vs Flames game tonight online and can I just say how gorgeous the Flames new uniforms are? Perfect matchup against Vancouver too.


    8 hours ago, Chromatic said:

    Yeah it really feels like the perfect matchup of opposites, the hot coloured team vs the cool coloured one.





    With the exception of the Canucks' logo and their bland Agency font, the uniform matchup between the Canucks and Flames is definitely gorgeous. The 80's and early 90's hot-coloured Canucks-Flames matchup was also very beautiful

    If by powder blue you meant the Hawaiian/electric/bright royal blue they used from 92 to 2001, agreed. They've used the same shade of blue as the Leafs and current Canucks since thenspacer.png and on its own or paired with a bright almost kelly green it's fine but paired with black, it's just way too dark


    The  blue number bordering is lighter than the royal blue on the jerseys. Definitely, the powdery Hawaiian electric blue for sure. Black and blue look great together but the blue needs be lighter than royal blue.

    These should be their primaries.


    I agree. They are gorgeous. However, the blue needs to be least a powder blue for better contrast with the black. Similar to the shade of blue the NBA Orlando Magic have.

    The Flyers definitely need to go back to that shade of orange instead of the traffic cone orange they wear now.


    Nothing wrong with either orange. After all, the Flyers could wearing creamsicle.

    Now, THAT is b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. The crown inside the white shield should be gold. Nevertheless, the best Retro Reverse uniform in the NHL. Make it the primary.💜💛

    Just because the Wild can't have a nickname doesn't mean anything. You're missing my point. Northern Lights would just be a really odd thing to call an NHL team. Even if you shorten it to a knickname which seems to be your eligibility criteria: Lights. Flick the lights off for me.


    Minnesota "Lights" Up Blues 9-2.

    Lights Clip Wings 4-1.

    I personally do not hear "Northern Lights" and think "professional sports franchise". It doesn't make more sense to me than Wild, especially when you have non plural names like Avalanche and Kraken. 


    Avalanche - Avs.


    Kraken -Kraks


    Wild - ???????


    Northern Lights is no different than North Stars, Flames, Red Wings, Flyers, Blue Jackets, etc.

    Minnesota could've called themselves the Northern Lights, brought back green & yellow, and updated the N* logo if they wanted to.


    It can still be done. The Wild haven't accomplished a thing other than having the worst team name in major pro sports.

    The State of Hockey deserves a lot better.

    Yes, but that doesn't mean we can't use our former colors full time.

    The Flyers took on the orange and black from Philadelphia's original NHL team, the Quakers. There's no reason why the North Stars' green and yellow-gold can't be used by another Minnesota franchise. Totally agree with @MinnyHockey.

    Why is this so hard?



    The Norm Green(Black) jersey - the worst jersey in the NHL when it first came out. It was a big "screw you" to longtime North Stars fans and the North Stars timeless brand.

    Dallas has two of the best uniforms for their home and away.  And two of the worst uniforms for their third and RR.  A shame that the third and RR take away games from the home and away sets.


    It's far better to have a nice-looking home & away set and an ugly 3rd and RR than the other way around.

    Canucks getting their retros out of the way all in one week against Winnipeg Feb 19 and 21, then Edmonton Feb 23 and 25.  The Oilers will be wearing their retros for those games.


    I will be sure to have an ice-cold 2L bottle of Sprite handy. I may get awfully thirsty.

    Yay or nay?


    A big YAY and two thumbs up.👍👍 The Avs are the only burgundy team in the NHL and they need to emphasize that colour a lot more.

    I also just realized that I have a general rule for such things. The helmets should match the pants, unless the helmet is white. Likely why the yellow buckets are jarring to me.


    I couldn't disagree more. The Rangers don't wear red helmets to match their red pants. It would look terrible. The Capitals and Devils used to wear red helmets to go with their red sweaters while wearing darker pants. In fact, the Devils should have kept the red helmets when they jumped on the Chicago Bulls' red and black bandwagon. The Golden Knights' steel grey helmets look amazing with the steel grey sweaters. As for yellow, it's a light colour like white and matching helmets with the sweaters and socks is a complete look. If the NHL ever reverts back to lights being worn at home, the Predators would need a matching navy blue set for the road while keeping the yellow-golds at home like the 80s Kings and Canucks.Los-Angeles-Kings-Throwback-Retro-Yellow-Jersey-1980-88.jpg_cf.jpg.83d23728f4eb5c04aed28360f0ffccd4.jpgmedium_Yellow-canucks_yellowjersey.jpg_cf.jpg.f5dba6cdcb0eb8bf383abbdb5cfe5d45.jpg
