  1. I was just going to post this same picture. I prefer the single large logo. I believe the Flyers and Canadiens were the last 2 teams to have the 2 small logos, with Montreal changing last year.
  2. ^^^ Is that a new alternate Mariners mark (the "M" with the compass rose on the scorebug), or just used for TV?
  3. The Philadelphia Flyers have used the same primary logo since their inception in 1967. This was also their jersey logo until 1981/82. In 1981/82, they switched just the jersey logo to this alternate version that uses slightly more angled wings. The original logo is still the Primary and is used everywhere; at center ice, on merchandise, on TV graphics, even the logo stickers on the players' helmets use this logo. The alternate, angled version seems to only be used on the front jersey crest. Does anyone know why they started to use, and continue to use this other logo on the jersey fronts only? Personally, I actually like the angled wing jersey logo more. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
  4. I think these uniforms were pretty awesome for a 90's expansion team. The gradient was a new effect in MLB, but not hideously overdone. I think they went backwards and became less "fun" with each change they made.
  5. I would be really interested in hearing about it when you can post.
  6. The Islanders seem to have made the "wave" design much more pronounced than the original prototypes were. The prototypes, modeled here, have angled stripes on the bottom of the jersey: While the actual production jerseys have a much "wavier" pattern: Obviously, changes are made to production jerseys all the time vs early prototypes, but I've never seen this one discussed here, and I was wondering what you guys think about it.
  7. 1996: Colorado Avalanche vs Pittsburgh Penguins instead of the Florida Panthers. 2 high-flying offensive teams (they played to a 6-6 tie earlier that season) instead of the Avs crushing a clutch-and-grab Panthers team. I still think the Avalanche win, but a Finals with Sakic, Forsberg, and Roy vs Mario and Jagr would have been incredible. (Also, if the Panthers don't make it all the to the Finals, does the NHL devolve into the clutch-and-grab Dead Puck era, or possibly other teams emulate the high-flying offense of those 2 teams?)
  8. Would white shoes help even the look out?
  9. Some of my favorite uniforms are ones that push boundaries, but don't go overboard and know how to keep things restrained when they have to. Whether it's an unusual color or striping pattern, you can still identify it as a professional team uniform. For example: Baseball: The original Devil Rays uniforms used a gradient, but were otherwise a fairly traditional set. Football: the Bengals. Tiger stripes on a football uniform? Sounds ridiculous. But because they were kept within traditional football uniform striping areas, they really worked. Hockey: San Jose Sharks. Teal and silver, teal hadn't been seen since the Golden Seals in the 1970's, and although it's a fairly outlandish color, the traditional hockey striping keeps it grounded. Does anyone else enjoy uniforms that kind of stand out or push boundaries without looking like clown suits? Obviously this is a very subjective matter, but those are some of my favorites.
  10. This log has always reminded me of bitch Stewie
  11. Also the St. Louis Blues in the mid 90's. I actually really liked the white jersey in this set. The road jersey was a bit garish with all the red, but toned down a little, it could've looked good.

    the past few years, I've noticed a lot of players using this very shiny clear tape on their socks (like the Bruins player in the pics above). I don't remember seeing that in the past, guys always used matching-color tape. It just sticks out in a cheap looking way. Anyone know if there is a reason for that?
  13. This is something that a couple teams did in the late 90's/early 2000's. The Flyers' black jerseys were awesome as once-in-a-while alternates, but then eventually they replaced the orange jerseys as the playoff roads, and then the oranges were phased out entirely. The Stars, Senators, Flames, Panthers, and Sharks all did likewise, promoting alternates to full-time road status. Not all were bad looks, but some seemed cooler as alternate looks that you saw occasionally.
  14. Just want to say this is a really interesting topic, and thanks for all the research you're doing

    Do the names on back look very small to anyone else? Almost like everyone has the Penguins' style names, very compact.
