    The problem with the current Blues (not including the white numbers) is the navy blue hem.  It makes the navy dominate when the royal should shine more, and more egregious is because the hem and the pants are the same color, it makes the jersey look really small.

    I've always wondered what the Blues would look like with the exact same jerseys but with royal blue pants, helmets and goves instead of navy. And agreed, they need to bring back the yellow numbers on the home jerseys

    From now on every time that picture of everyone with gray facemasks gets posted I'll just post this new and improved one.

    So is it just me or do the Panthers really need to switch to light blue helmets? The logo would need a white outline obviously. And there needs to be at least another red helmet team. Even just one. Falcons or Bills, whatever. Not enough red in this league imo

    The Mighty Ducks set was one of my favourites, but I'd hardly call the palette original. Around that time period the Hornets, Raptors, Grizzlies, Pistons, Jazz, Sharks, Diamondbacks, Rockies, Marlins, Jaguars, and Ravens all debuted sets using purple and/or teal as a primary colour. Whether or not it looked good, it was incredibly trendy.

     

    My turn to be pedantic lol. Eggplant isn't the same as purple and jade isn't teal either. It definitely IS a unique color scheme. The Hornets, Jazz and Diamonbacks were purple and teal and they looked nothing like the Mighty Ducks. It may have been a twist on trendy colors of the early 90s but they made those colors iconic

    I don't know if it quite fits here, but the Winnipeg Jets' (v2.0) overall identity has really grown on me. The logo seemed underwhelming when it first came out, but it, along with the home, road, and alternate sets, by and large was designed (intentional or not) with a certain level of staying power, which is especially ironic given how quickly everything was apparently put together.

    That's an unpopular opinion? I think their current set with the light blue alternate is a modern classic and better than what they used to wear in the 90s and 80s

    One of the few NHL teams where the away/white jersey is more interesting than the home (and I was impressed when I saw someone on the street wearing one...it looks great in person). 

     

    In 2011 I was hoping for a return to an 80s or 90s Jets look, but the current set has aged pretty well. 

    Agreed. Their white jersey does look great

    I don't love the Stars in all-white. I actually like their reverse retro jersey, but seeing this in action, I think black or green pants would have been better just to break things up.

    Victory Green pants and gloves would have looked soooo good

    The colors are great...The socks are dumb. 

     

    Bring back jade and eggplant, Ducks! Keep the current logo if you want...just get away from boring black and orange. 

    Agreed

    I don't hate the dark socks. There is enough jade on the jersey that they don't look terribly out of place.

     

    Wild Wing on white looks awful because his lines aren't thick enough to contrast on the jersey.

     

    10/10 concept, 5/10 for execution.

    In an ideal world, the Wild Wing mascot would have been in the eggplant jersey and the socks would have been white. The dark socks make the uniform seem extremely bottom heavy. And while were at it, the solid gloves suck. They needed the jade cuff and fingers and the silver and white trim. Such a half assed uniform

    It's like the Boise Broncos played hockey.

    When you want an NFL Color Rush uniform but your mom says "we have NFL Color Rush uniforms at home"

    If EA's anything to go by here, they will;

    Yeah I know. I'm really hoping they frigged up and that it's just a small misunderstanding. I have no idea how any of this works but if they were told and not actually shown the socks, maybe there's been a mixup about the Ducks saying they would be using home socks or something, but they meant home as in white, the way it was in the 90s . Also, this is a very minor mistake most people won't notice but they got the gloves wrong for Calgary and Buffalo

    I've made my opinions known about helmet ads earlier in this thread and I'm not interested in repeating the same stuff over and over again so I'll just post this meme lol

     

    In an effort to make my post a little more uni related, I'm really looking forward to the Ducks wearing their RR tonight. I just hope they won't be wearing dark socks. I guess we'll find out soon!

    Yeah I watched part of a game with the Sharks in their RRs...the gray and teal just seemed too dark and seemed hard to read. I think they darkened the teal in 2007, and used the current shade on these...but they should have used the brighter 90s teal. 

    True, they darkened the teal twice if I'm not mistaken. The OG teal was a little too light and blue-ish imo but the second shade of teal they used from the late 90s to just before the awful Edge redesign was perfect. The new teal is a little too dark and green-ish

    IMO that Ducks logo is just so embarrassing it ruins the rest of the jersey.  I like unique templates of the 90s (Stars, Avs, Bos 3rd) so I think the NYI and PHX looks were appealing.

     

    (By the way I can't think of a clever Earth Crisis tie-in but I never thought I'd see a band like that referenced here haha!  So there are at least 2 fans of heavy music here)

    Depends, would you say the Wild Wing jersey is "absolute complete moral degeneration"? ūüėā

    I still like that jersey no matter how goofy it looks cause Paul Kariya was my favorite player growing up

    Not to be nitpicky, but I'd like a little credit for my own concept.

     

    And to toss my hat in the ring - the Isles' RR look gorgeous, but they are still boring. Teal fishsticks would've been much better.

    Didn't mean to take credit for your concept, it was just a random person who posted it on twitter and they obviously didn't credit you either lol. But good job, looks great

    Well, that's not for certain yet. The Ducks have yet to put out anything about what the Reverse Retro getup looks like, besides the jersey.

     

    The dark socks, and the pants for the matter, come from NHL 21 and we all know EA's uniform track record with uniforms.

    EA have been surprisingly spot on so far with the RR jerseys. I'm really hoping this one is just a mistake. Dark socks would look awful with white jerseys and helmets

    If you think these:

    are on the "same level" as either of these:

    AFTER LOOSING TAVARES, ISLANDERS GO INSANE AND BRING BACK FISH STICKS  JERSEY : hockeycirclejerkimages?q=tbn:ANd9GcRmKEM1bj2CKyat08U28Xp

    well... you and I see things very differently, friend.

    Well, not sure who you were quoting but those are all very corny and awesome in the same heavy 90s nostalgia way. The Mighty Ducks jersey is probably ranked a bit higher for a lot people because Kariya and Selanne were absolute superstars and made them iconic. Those were dark days for Islanders fan and the Coyotes were just as irrelevant back then as they are now. Context is important in this case I think. Nostalgia can cloud judgement and good taste lol. Not sure what you meant by "same level". You're implying the Ducks jerseys are better or worse than the other two?

    I'm assuming Detroit, the Isles, Winnipeg and Toronto are down there with how universally they've been considered a dissapointment.

    Those are all teams with huge fanbases though. Well except maybe NYI. But fans will buy anything. So who knows? If I had to guess I'd say Nashville and Columbus are also near the bottom. Maybe St Louis? I'm assuming most people who loved the 90s jerseys already bought the blue one recently so the red one probably feels a bit redundant

    The same kinds of people who made the Peyote and Wild Wing two of the very best selling Reverse Retros of them all? I have to imagine the Isles' RR is not gonna sell particularly well because of just how damned similar it is to their home.

    I dunno. You could be right, I don't think it's fair to assume that people hold the Fishermen jerseys in the same regard as the Wild Wing or Peyote jerseys but I could be wrong. I did find this list https://russianmachineneverbreaks.com/2020/12/07/the-washington-capitals-had-the-top-selling-reverse-retro-jersey/ and the only thing those 5 best selling jerseys have in common is they they were all worn at some point in the 90s, so maybe you're onto something. Then again, the RR version of the Lady Liberty jersey was pretty damn lazy too and it sold well so I'm not sure what that means exactly

     

    I'd be curious to see who were in the bottom 5 though lol


  16. 7 hours ago, WSU151 said:

     

    They'd be ok for 3 games. Pretty sure they'd sell well, too...which is the whole point. 

    That's the thing though, I'm not against wacky designs, I've always wanted a Mighty Ducks Wild Wing jersey and I love the Coyotes Kachina uniforms. I even like the Fishermen jerseys myself. But do people actually wanna see them again? This board doesn't represent the general population, far from it. It doesn't even accurately represents die hard fans. Not many people care about jerseys beyond "this looks fresh" or "this looks like :censored:". I'm not sure the Fishermen jerseys in teal would have pleased a lot of people, let alone Islanders fans who were around in the mid 90s or Lou. I'm just saying the navy RR may look boring to you, but in a nutshell, they actually look great. It's a solid jersey and it makes sense for a team run by Lou Lamoriello

    spacer.png

    How many people would have bought these, realistically? Even on this board, most of us I assume would have been amused to watch game highlights but I think the novelty would wear out fast. Sure, they could have worn them for two games only, but they can wear the navy RR 6 times and look good and the only ones complaining are jerseys nerds on the internet (no offense, I'm one of those nerds and I'm proud of it lol)

    Given the nature of Reverse Retro, is it boring? Sure. But that is a really clean look

    Yeah they look good

    Yeah, but the entire point of Reverse Retro was to be unique spins on retro designs. This is just their normal home with a change of blue and a flipped stripe order.

    Well, since their normal jerseys are already retros, I'd say they didn't miss the point. What did you want them to do? Teal or orange Fisherman jerseys? lol
