2014-2015 NHL Jersey/Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

So my dad has been paying more attention to jerseys and logos in the past couple years because of me, so he just texted me saying that he noticed the Red Wings changed their namebars...

Hey, it's a rookie mistake that we've all probably made. Glad he's paying attention.

I know, but I just found it funny.

Do we know why the Red Wings do that?

What an idiot why do people wear other teams jerseys to games they're not even playing.

I dont know but if that's a #29 Felix Potvin Leafs jersey, I'll allow it. I idolized Potvin as a kid.

Because they have to custom make the vertically arched nameplates and during the preseason there's a bunch of guys that won't make the team so it's easier to just make standard horizontal nameplates for them.

Ugh, yes, Dallas Stars, you're hip to the internets, we get it already. It's like the team is run by Chris Hardwick.

god, dallas stars! stop interacting with your young fan base with humor they can relate to!

just play some organ music and the hoosier's "rally clap" scene, and stop trying to make the game experience enjoyable.

stars fans love the game presentation michael gruber has put together since he took the job. i don't think anyone in the stars organization cares that "the admiral" doesn't.

Because people are free to do whatever they want as long as they don't harm anyone else.

Whether they look like an idiot or not, got it.

Made this a couple months ago. I still think this would work as a suitable primary:

That's awesome! Way better than what they are currently wearing. Your concept would easily give the Lightning a look that stands out from the rest of the league, especially Toronto.

I wonder what it'd look like if you switched the black and blue on the jersey and socks.

You could wear a tutu and army helmet around town if you wanted to. That doesn't explain WHY you would do it.

In all seriousness, my theory is that maybe they're less sports savvy, and they figure they're going to a hockey game, so they'll wear their only hockey jersey, even if the team isn't playing.

Maybe he's more sports savvy. Maybe he's a huge hockey fan and loves the Maple Leafs and he got tickets to a Stars game while visiting family in Dallas. Hell, if I were somewhere like Boston and was going to a Bruins/Canadiens game, I most certainly would wear my Blues jersey because I'm a huge hockey fan and will support my home team wherever I am whether or not they're playing. It doesn't make him and idiot. Far from it, in fact.

I quite like this. I think the colour balance is really good with blue as the primary colour and you kept the current logo, which IMO is much, much better than any of the florida outline based stuff they had in the past. Well done!

i've got no issue with people wearing jerseys of neutral teams to games... if i went to a cowboys/eagles game, i'm not a fan of either team in anyway, but i'd go, because i like sports. i've got a ton of titans jerseys, and oilers throwbacks... am i not allowed to wear them, because they're not involved in the game? they're not in any way affiliated with my grocery store either,but i wear them there.

my guess is that the guy is a leafs fan that got tickets to a stars/bolts game, and likes hockey, so he went. no harm, no foul.

at the same time, it's also fair game to make stupid jokes at his expense on the jumbotron for a cheap laugh, too. they also made fun of a chick wearing a blackhawks jersey at the same game. they had ned stark from game of thrones next to her, with the meme saying "bandwagon blackhawks fans are coming."

they later did a play on their old "seat upgrade" thing, where they take someone from the upper bowl and move them to glass seats... they made blackhawks girl do a "seat downgrade" by having the mascot escort her from the lower bowl into the worst seats in the entire arena. she was a good sport, and everyone laughed. knowing the stars, she probably got a pretty good package of stars/hawks tickets for playing along with the joke for a couple minutes.

I know half the people here are going to say it's silly to put rules on something as trivial as jersey wearing, and the other half are going to come up with their own set of rules, but I'm going to cite, once again, the Jersey Foul Bill of Rights once again. It may be Pittsburgh-centric, but the rules apply everywhere.

NOTE: this was before Jerome Iginla spent a few shifts in Pittsburgh, which renders this photo moot.

Something that is always a head scratcher for us is the presence of a jersey for an NHL team not involved in the game the bearer is present at. The above picture is of a Flames jersey we saw during a Flyers-Penguins game in March. The occasion of a hockey game isn't an excuse to wear something simply because it's hockey related.

There are many exceptions to this rule however. If one of the teams involved is a rival, the practice is acceptable. We remember seeing a Dave Keon Maple Leafs jersey at the Penguins' first playoff game against Ottawa last season. Since Ottawa and Toronto are rivals, that's cool.

Another exception is a certain player's jersey from a former team. (Example: A Miroslav Satan Islanders jersey orTyler Kennedy's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton jersey.)

Also, international jerseys are acceptable assuming a player of that country is involved with the game. If you want to wear a team Russia jersey in honor of Evgeni Malkin, go for it.

The biggest exception to this rule is defunct franchises. If you're rocking a Uwe Krupp Nordiques jersey or anything with the Hartford Whalers, we will grant you jersey asylum.

If they had to go with a diagonal script, I would've liked to see TAMPA BAY instead of BOLTS.

Give Stamkos a haircut and that image is just about perfect lol. I can overlook the lack of silver if you assure me there are victory stripes hidden under those arms. ;)

No offense, but this is a lateral move from "ripoff of another NHL team" to "generic team from a movie."
