  1. Wow that helmet would look GOOD. And a great way to distance themselves a bit further from the GB Packers. What are the odds of them doing something like that, though?
  2. Those were completely unannounced right? Like many others have said, it kinda works for them, but chrome gold is overkill, just painted gold metallic with flakes would be an improvement. I do like that some teams could possibly introduce alternate helmets/pants/gloves. Could see Dallas in green gear for special occasions. Nashville with navy helmets. The Avalanche with burgundy pants on the road. Stuff like that. Why not. The NFL kinda does it. If it can be done in moderation of course
  3. The black pants did look better with the original set that had a bit more black in the striping than on the simplified adidas uniforms, but agreed. There was nothing wrong with the black gear
  4. Nah I get what you mean. I had to check on trucolor to be sure. Maybe the lighting in that rink? It does look a bit more on the orange side in that picture Yikes
  5. Adjust your TV lol. According to trucolor, they use the same standard red (PMS 186 C) as every other red team except Montreal and Minnesota
  6. To be fair, I don't think many people are aware of that. I've had the same discussion on facebook when the Canadiens announced they would wear black practice jerseys in warm ups for a game this week. Some of these can be corny and/or look bad or gimmicky, but who cares as long as it's for a good cause
  7. It's a good looking 90s template. When people think of the 90s they picture the wildest stuff with gradients and swooshes but diagonal stripes really took off in this decade and it's relatively tame by today's standards and a modern classic imo. I also love the pattern on the socks
  8. Looks good to me. Grey helmets don't work at all, though
  9. So is it too dark or too light? lmao. I think it looks just fine. Obviously I haven't watched the game on tv. The silver on the sleeve could use a little more dazzle but I could go either way
  10. Blasty uniforms looked pretty good last night. I wouldn't want the Flames wearing black too often but once in a while, why not
  11. Right, so according to Mr Graphic Designer here, the Blackhawks have a terrible logo because it doesn't look like facebook's icon when shrunk down
  12. It's probably just the tackle twill that reflects light differently than the jersey fabric, pretty sure in person they're the same color
  13. They're both very detailed logos. Have you ever seen an authentic Blackhawks jersey with the chain stitching? They're gorgeous. Boston's B has a triple outline. Nice try, yourself. Also, you conveniently forgot to talk about the extremely detailed Red Wings logo and the Leafs logo that has text in it Right, if you say so. By your own standards most of the logos fail but you sure like to move the goalposts when making your arguments I'm just saying it's not necessary to make a logo that looks good when shrunk down. It works for the Habs and Flyers and Blues but if the Blackhawks or Red Wings redesigned their logo with twitter and instagram icons in mind, I don't think a single person in the whole universe would be happy about that. Nothing wrong with a detailed logo with thin lines, it's primarily meant to be on a jersey anyway
  14. It's... never been a problem for the Blackhawks and Red Wings and Bruins and Leafs and countless... other logos that are seen as the best in sports...
  15. 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 then 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
  16. The lines are too thick. As with all modern logos. They're too worried about what it will look like shrunk to tiny sizes on an internet sports page or in the newspaper in black and white when they should be worrying about what it will look like in full 10" by 10" size on the front of their jerseys
  17. Agreed. Not sure why so many people are saying it's a bad logo. Better than the generic clip art one they have no and the Edge era logo looks dated as hell now, worse than the original one imo. It's not perfect but it looks just fine
  18. Yeah, another embarrassing loss with lots of injury scares like that and I'm afraid we'll never see those blue jerseys again
  19. Andrei Markov needs an HM in my opinion. Some people would say Koivu. Cool idea for a series though
  20. These 2 pictures side by side just show how much better the originals were
  21. While you're at it, make the shoulders and back numbers white If you get my drift
  22. Well in an ideal world, wheat colored helmets wouldn't look disgusting and they could get away with a wheat away jersey lol I don't think they're bad, just a bit plain. It's the huge sleeve numbers, contrasting nameplates and hollow back numbers that look awful. With normal lettering, they would look decent imo. Glad I'm not the only one who noticed a Color Rush vibe to a few recent alternates. Dallas is especially guilty of it. Trying to cash in on the Cowboy's popularity I guess, so I can't really blame them but mono white just doesn't work with hockey uniforms They're gonna wear the RR more than the true alternates this year. A sign of things to come? I get that they've done it before, but that was a looong time ago and the reason for even doing it in the first place was because they were cheap. I'm sorry, contrasting nameplates look cheap and gimmicky. Just cause it's been done before doesn't mean they had to do it again. I get that they're trying to make it "their thing" but it's just another gimmick like when Buffalo used chest numbers
  23. And they're wearing them 7 times! I thought 6 was the upper limit. Yeah I know, one of those is an outdoors game, technically
