The gradient and bevel look cheap, and the only decent things about the 1996 logo were the hockey stick-"J" and the jet, both of which are absent here. It's literally just the team name awkwardly shoehorned into a circle. It looks like a friggin' coaster design.

How has no one complained about Tampa Bay wearing their black alt jerseys against the Kings yet?

Agreed - the jet with contrails was what made that 90s logo work.

And also poisoned the children of Manitoba with mind-control chemicals.

The only change we need is the Islanders going back to the fisherman jerseys. That is all.

You just like your food to be in pictures on the menu.

There's a reason so many kids showed up at Portage and Main to hand over their piggy banks to Barry Shenkarow.

First time ever that I've seen a goalie wear number 88. All Tampa needed to do was fill in the sleeves with blue and it would be half decent, clone or no clone.

Just when I got used to 70 and 72 being goalie numbers 88 shows up. The blue they use with the black pops a lot more than it did with the 07 set.

At least it's a refreshing change from goalies always using the numbers 1, 30, 31, 35, or 39.

I think the winter classic should take one year that the teams played each other in the past, and remake the unis from that year.... This is like a look back in time kinda game.

I don't disagree with this thought process. I kept thinking that the whole way throught the game yesterday. That one change and put the logo on the chest and you have a very nice jersey.

Exactly. Though the "Jet" is more like a nondescript polygon. Its a shame the Jets have yet to have a logo that could be considered great.

I remember seeing this like 2 years ago. If i remember , it's from the same guy who made the Senator's heritage jersey on a fan design like this and later became the team's alternate jersey.

I remember this being panned by Icethetics readers. It's quite generic, not that the original was much better.

If by "generic" you mean it's "beautiful" and is obviously a nod to the original. Just because you use classic striping patterns doesn't mean it's generic. It's nothing like the auto fill Nike football jerseys. This striping pattern is hockey. Probably the most common striping pattern on socks.

So striping that most everyone uses is not generic? It's not autofill?

If a whole bunch of teams use the same pattern, then it most definitely is autofill and generic.

They are like Northwestern and UCLA stripes in football, it's a classic look, it's a good look, and you associate them with the sport. If they didn't look good and work for the sport, we wouldn't be using them still today.
