  1. any updates on when we get to see official uniforms? i was certain we'd have seen something concrete by now.
  2. It looks way better photshopped than in actual photos. Maybe if it were fully sublimated it wouldn't suck so bad... but those maroon matches/fabric changes to create the mountain shape just LOOK like garbage. I really want to see the rejected ideas if this was the winner. Thank god Dallas got an actual Winter Classic instead of a Stadium series.
  3. I don't remember the last time my opinions differed from everyone else's on this forum so wildy! That jersey is probably the worst NHL jersey I've seen. The fishsticks are better. The Mooterus is better.... the Buffaslug is 20x better. The Sabres Turdburger is arguably better, because it's a stupid gimmick just like this sweater, but at least it WOULD HAVE looked okay if the back matched the front. This one just has NO redeeming qualities for me. It's just really bad from top to bottom. speaking of bottoms, is the guy in the pic wearing the pants backwards?! I've never seen the NHL logo in that placement....
  4. So that's for if Colorado ever wants to bring back the Flying V concept of the Canucks?
  5. This speaks greatly to the success of this uniform, imo.
  6. As a fan, I'm a fan. Green helmets, retro leather gloves, the white shoulders. It's a perfect mix of current Stars, North Stars, and Dallas Texans they were shooting for. I already bought an Authentic Heiskanen, and I'm waiting for customization to be an option cause I may get a Corey Perry too. The Stars fan base is basically eating this up with a spoon, per Twitter. The only complaints so far have been the pants color, but even that works in my eyes for the era we are throwing back to. Absolute home run, as far as this Stars fan is concerned. It feels so good to finally have my team create an aesthetic that works. We've come a long way from the midnight green, mooterus, and black/gold eras.
  7. Oddly enough, those aren't unique. They're a standard Brian's design. I think it's called Beast. He isn't the first NHL player to wear them. He may not even be first Bruin. They've been available in The NHL video game for years. Though Brian's does do a lot of custom pads... I remember unique styles for Weekes and Potvin. But those Brian's clawmark pads have been around for years with various claw mark designs.
  8. I get the inspiration for it, but it just feels like a waste of a great new logo and a snoozefest of a sweater.
  9. Dastard.... You think the Flames retros look like O6 dress up? When you list off the schemes that use black, you see to assume I'm anti-black in hockey. I'm not. I just think it isn't NEEDED. It was better before it was added. The Canes and Lightning look better when they use it. The Flames don't. Easy as that. Black outlines aren't fundamentally bad. The Flames just look better without them, and they don't need them. Please don't misunderstand my argument.
  10. At the risk of this turning into another Canucks thing where we can't talk about it because we've already talked about it, here is my take on the Flames and black. If you think the Flames need black, then you think the Red Wings need black. They should have almost identical color schemes. The only difference is that the Flames have some yellow highlights to it. The yellow doesn't have to be quarantined with black to keep it from bleeding, because the red, yellow, and white bleeding together isn't a bad thing! As long as they follow the way they've always done it, with white logos/numbers on a red field, with yellow outlines, the bleeding together doesn't make it less legible. It makes it warmer. It makes it look like a flame. Not ever single feature has to be a stark contrasting bold mark. The effect that is achieved by using only red/yellow/white is EXACTLY what they should try to do. It reads as easily as the Red Wings to me, and gives it a distinct FIRE appearance that is perfect for the team image. Black cools off the scheme too much, in my opinion. Red/yellow/white is just so vibrant, it doesn't need added contrast.
  11. The Canucks need a lumberjack identity. Without question. First of all, it's cool and unique. Secondly, it's totally justified. Thirdly, their name is Canucks, which immediately even brings my southern brain to Johnny Canuck. The Orca isnt a bad logo, really. I just think it doesn't work on their current uniforms in the way it is being used... but just because there's nothing wrong with the Orca doesn't mean things shouldn't be improved by constructing a brand new lumberjack themed identity.
  12. That's a candle?! I thought it was a retro 70s-looking maple leaf. It looks oddly familiar but I can't place it. Like maybe an old Canada Cup leaf or something.
  13. the actual navy-heavy logo is better than these alterations, in my opinion. the yellow version looks unintentionally poorly drawn, like a Jr. High kid's MS Paint concept. Potential, but not really good. the navy version looks intentionally retro and sloppy, like an old-timey felt patch. does exactly what it needs to do. i really like it, even as an actual primary logo. it has an old timey sports feeling. I've never liked the predators primary logo. I actually slightly preferred it when it was chromey power rangers one from back when they used silver. the simplified current primary is just shaped oddly and overly flat. but i sorta just went on a tangent about the preds lackluster primary logo for no reason, so i'll get back to the logo in question. it works in navy because you KNOW it's going to be used almost exclusively on a yellow background. the navy version checks all the boxes. i really really like it.
  14. I LOVE that Stars logo. I'm just now terrified the sweaters will feature red instead of green now. Call it Mooterus PTSD if you must.
  15. I don't see how Mustangs could have been in the running for Dallas, given SMU.
  16. As a former Houston Oilers fan, current Tennessee Titans well-wisher, Dallas resident, and apathetic NFL observer, I'm pretty excited about what I'm seeing from the Dallas Renegades..... Oilers colors, but another boring/generic "Wild West" style name? I can stomach it. Especially if they somehow play up the tattoo/biker culture in their other logos, and utilize columbia blue and red primarily over black....
  17. I like single-digit pitchers.
  18. If they'd just been green, I'm pretty sure the Stars would still use them. The backlash was over being black and gold, with the lack of a logo being a secondary concern.
  19. I'm a proud owner of a Messier Canucks, Redden Senators, and Yashin Islanders. They were cheap, and I think they're amazing sweaters to wear for fashion purposes.
  20. As a Dallasite that hates the Cowboys, I'm totally willing to jump on this XFL bandwagon if they give us even a remotely appealing identity. But my hopes are low.
  21. I wonder if the use of gold is any indication of the direction the Stars uniform will go.
  22. "I mean, the Wild aren't my team... But I sure wish they were the Stars. That counts for this thread, right?"
  23. Stars will be hosting the Predators at the Cotton Bowl January 1st.
  24. i really want to hate those Stars jerseys, but i don't... at all... i love them. sign me up for a heiskanen or radulov.
