2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

The lack of build-up for the Caps unveiling makes me think we're getting a recycled jersey. And it's happening in Vegas, nowhere near their fans. Same thing happened with the Flyers last summer, they announced the 'unveiling' about 15 minutes before they showed off the jersey.

If they were just going to use the Winter Classic Jersey, why even announce the "unveiling?" I think it'll be a red 70's throwback to join the white, in preparation for an eventual full time switch. After all, the white throwback was used in the playoffs...

I assume this Caps jersey will either be a Red version of the throwback, or a Navy jersey using the Eagle as primary crest

It's a red version of the Winter Classic if the backround of the Caps site is any hint.

It's just too bad that the Weagle won't work with those jerseys because it's going to suck to lose such a nice logo when the throwbacks become the primaries.

I didn't hear it myself but apparently one of the sports radio guys here in Edmonton said the Oilers are getting a new third jersey that is predominantly orange and it may be unveiled at the draft on Friday.

Whaaaat?

It wouldn't be without precedent. From 1972-74, the Alberta/Edmonton Oilers' dark jerseys were orange.

The white jersey is being retired, so they're probably not becoming the primaries.

Eh, the Caps got a lot of things right here, but I don't want this and the white throwback to become the primary sweaters. It just screams of a tacky 80's all star game. Tone down the stars and you have a nice uniform, but I'd much rather have the caps play in blue and black again.

I don't care what people say, those are great Capitals jerseys. And I prefer royal blue to navy, but I'd live with the navy. Honestly, keep everything else the same, slap either the new wordmark or the Weagle on the chest and call it a day.

Yeah but I don't recall seeing anything on the logo/jersey sites about them getting a third. Seems out of left field.

Only thing I could find on Twitter so far is this tweet from a writer in Edmonton:

Renato Pagnani @rennavate

There's a rumor that the #Oilers are going to unveil an orange Alberta Oilers-inspired third jersey at the #NHLDraft. I am here for this.

The OKC Barons used an orange alt last year, and it looked fantastic. I think the Oilers were selling Alberta Oilers throwbacks in their arena shop either this season or last, too.
