2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

I once read that the Rangers paid a fine every time they wore the Lady Liberty jerseys. I never could find out why.

Has anyone else heard this?

You mean a fee, right?

I haven't researched. But IMO, it probably costs a few royalties to use the Statue of Liberty as part of your brand. I can't imagine it being something else.

How ironic :rolleyes:

They probably had to pay Mel Brooks for the right to use Mega Maid's image.

(A Ranger fan friend of mine who hates the look calls them the Planet of the Apes jerseys, but I think the logo looks more like Mega Maid from Spaceballs.)

A shame the Rangers don´t have those jerseys anymore, would have looked good and been very fitting on the night they payed tribute to the Paris victims.

Both the blue and the white liberty jersey were great imo

Good on the FDNY. That's the way to do it.

The Statue of Liberty was originally trademarked before it was even finished, much less installed:

But that was 140 years ago and I don't believe that trademark is still in effect. Shutterstock has a good rundown of buildings with rights issues, and according to them she's clear.

Word around the Sens twittersphere is that Ottawa may be getting new red jerseys in 2017.

If they're red, they can't be the heritage set :) Good move.

If the Senators made red and white versions of this sweater, they'd never have to change uniforms again.

I stand by my opinion that this is one of the best uniforms in NHL history, and it should have been the basis for the Senators' first edge set.

Yeesh...

No thank you. That anime logo and NASCAR number font are downright awful. Not to mention that the shade of gold on these jerseys looked like something from a bad prom dress when seen in person.

I know a lot of people around here really seem to enjoy this jersey, but I don't know too many Sens fans who would support its return.

Updated, forward facing centurion needs to be the primary... If not that, the original version.

I love that third. The only problem is the awful Peace Tower patch on the shoulders.

Take that base, put the new logos on it (3D on the front, 2D on the shoulders), maybe swap out the font on the back, and make a white version. Done.

Also, the original Sens jerseys were garbage; the logo on its own wasn't any good, either.

The Peace Tower secondary would be cooler if it had the mint/patina green on the steeple. A little accent of a unique color like that would really jump out. Someone here did a very good update of it; I hope I had the foresight to download it.

Hate the 3-D logos, love the old and unused 2-D logos, no sweater design of theirs but the one posted above has been any damn good. Oh, and Serpentine is a terrible font, the official font of a squad car pulling you over in BFE for going 67 in a 65.

You talking about mcrosby's?

If so, then I agree. The bottom one would be perfect on the shoulder.

I could see them going with a set similar to the existing one, only with a striping pattern leaning more towards the heritage jerseys. Ideally, a best of both worlds set would be perfect.

Especially if they make the right call for the primary and shoulder logos.

Why would we think the Senators would make the right choice? We have almost 25 years' worth of evidence to the contrary.

Melnyk will take a click-and-fill of whatever the latest template is in 2017, and proclaim it beautiful and timeless.
