The current logo doesn't need to go away entirely, it's very expensive to change all these things. Just tweaking the colors, and you get something decent, splitting the original look with the Colorado third jersey.

This is a nice update. Love that font choice. But I'd make the striping more consistent on the black jersey.

At the risk of starting another argument about the two logos, this uniform is simply a thing of beauty.  One thing I just noticed is how the the hem striping borrows from the 'Mighty Ducks' look, while the sleeve striping represents the current branding.  It's nice when teams incorporate elements of their history.  Even if they switched the 'Mask' with the 'Webbed D,' I would be all for it becoming the primary.  Anaheim knocked it out of the park with this uniform.  10/10.

I agree that it would look fine with the D logo. But between the two, the mask is the stronger mark by far and propels this jersey right up there. Hell, I'd go as far as to say it's the best thing the Ducks have ever worn. Even better than the eggplant and jade uniforms, and I love those things.

Good catch! Don't know if that was meant to be a nod to their roots or just coincidence, but it's good nonetheless. I didn't think of that.

 

If they promote this to being the new home jersey, I could see them changing shoulder patches to phase out the Webbed D, in favor of the new/old or should I say old/new branding. Teams like to do that, when they release new stuff. This time, it would be an issue because the duck foot represents the franchise's only Stanley Cup. So in terms of future branding, there's alot that will need to be put into consideration.

The D foot is a really good, really solid logo. It's perfect as a shoulder patch. But the duck mask logo absolutely blows it out of the water. Sure, it's cartoony, but that's mostly why makes it so great IMO. And it's not like they're the only team with a cartoony primary. The Penguins crest is pretty cartoony, but it's also a great logo. The Sharks logo is pretty cartoony too, and it's solid in its own right. Their old logo (which I MUCH prefer) is WAY cartoony too, and that's probably my favorite ever hockey logo.

I thought the problem was that they reduced drag and were too dangerous?

 

That's also what I heard but after being forced to wear Edge socks (resulting in a dislocated kneecap sliding into the board), let me tell you there isn't much drag either...

Not that this has stopped other teams from doing the same. Look at the Stars and Lightning for example. Heck, the Bolts have rebranded twice since their Cup win. There's the mindset that teams should "look their best", but arguably, both teams are better off for moving away from their Cup winning uniforms. Unpopular Opinion here, but I actually quite like the Bolts current look (sans third) in spite of looking like a Leafs clone.

I've noticed, with all of the recent Lightning concepts, that the primary color is blue. I've always thought of Tampa Bay as a black team. That was their primary color from their inception until the most recent update. They could've dropped blue entirely during their first decade and it wouldn't have been all that noticeable. Why has there been this big change to blue?

Agreed. I think Morgo's latest Lightning concept is ideal for them. Keep them black but have blue a little more prominent than their originL jerseys.

You see here is the difference between a real logo like the D and a Disney cartoon like that crap up above.

 

If Ryan Getzlaf is wearing the D and gets hit. This is the sound he makes.

This is probably the best iteration I've seen of combining the various eras of Tampa's identity into a modern but classy look. The current logo while pretty boring actually looks tastefully minimalistic when it's not completely monotone. The jerseys are a nice tweaking of their best and most successful jerseys in their history. 

 

Add some silver trim to the lightning bolt and the stripes, make the home stripe pattern match those on the away, and make the blue a shade or two brighter to add some contrast and you have a really decent set.

Holy :censored: , Octopus. Get over it.

 

Again, you act like the Mighty Ducks logo killed your family or something. (And if it did, it was probably delicious.) 

 

We get it. You don't like the logo, but, guess what, it exists. It was here, now it's back and better than ever. So please, go crawl back under a rock and scuttle on home.

The only team that could kill @The Giant Pacific Octopus's family is the Detroit Red Wings. Red-Wings-Octopus.jpg
