2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

It wasn't an issue for 20 seasons.

More like 7. Bruins went to a much blacker jersey in '74 when they eliminated the gold yoke on their jerseys.

:suspect:

Isn't that like being more pregnant?

Yep. Too bad it's likely on it's final year while the current full time, garbage gets to continue its reign of poor taste.

Really now, they didn't make all those seats beige so that they'd switch to more visually appealing uniforms! :upside:

Much like a guy who hadn't had sex for too long, the Sharks came first.

Looks like they were trying to copy the Mighty Ducks.

WHAT? The San Jose Sharks predate the Mighty Ducks (team and film) by at least a year!

Yes I know that. I was referring to the video. Unless the video came out during the Sharks' first year.

It would be 93 as it features the tank

I wouldn't jump to conclusions just yet. It is 10,000,000,000,000x better than their current jerseys and this jersey has been extremely well received not only by Penguin fans, but by regular fans league wide as well. On top of that, it is an awesome jersey, and it looks fantastic on the ice. This time, I don't think it is the alternate jersey that is getting changed, I think it is the main jerseys, that are finally getting changed.

It's the Penguins... The current, futuristic, click-and-fill mess is the only set to last more than 5 years in the teams history. The previous alts were also well received and popular, yet both lasted only two years. Not advocating they return to powder blue but even that would be a better option than keeping the current set.

It is simply the worst look in the league. Worse than the Flames, worse than the Avalanche, even worse than what the Coyotes tried to pass off as uniforms this summer... No redeeming qualities what so ever. You'd think their 2009 cup victory, the first since 1992, would have been a big deal but in those uniforms the most emotion I could muster was "well, at least Detroit didn't repeat..."

The Penguins need to go to the alternate look full time and get rid of the crappy Vegas khaki. They would maybe share the same color scheme as Boston but they would look much different.

That's not true. While the away jersey changed, the Robopen set existed with the same home jersey from 1992 to 2002. That counts.

He did say set, and changing at least one uniform majorly is a set change. So one uniform lasted for 10 years, but not the set.

It absolutely was a set change, a horrible one at that. I can see why the team wanted to get rid of the script but that was not the way to go about it. Had they simply made a reverse version of the white, they'd have ended up with one of the best looks in their history.

It's an absolute travesty they chose to go with those crappy Rangers knockoffs over this beauty. Fix the beak and it's one of my favourite jerseys in all of sports.

robo-pen was the best.

One of the most underrated logos in sports.

The continuity of that one jersey makes it count in my eyes.

Even if the Penguins went with the alternate look full time next season, it wouldn't be fast enough. I, like everyone else on here just do not understand how the Penguins could possibly continue to sport their current garbage for as long as they have.

The worst part is that two of the worst-dressed teams in the league (Pittsburgh and Colorado) are run by guys who starred when they were two of the best.
