I'll probably get flack for this, but this jersey doesn't look too bad in this photo.  Whether you like overly detailed logo's or not, you have to at least appreciate all the effort and detail that went into that crest.  Unfortunately, when you view this jersey in action, the gold and navy layers tend to blend together, even more, creating that horribly muddy, 'mustard' effect that has (rightfully) earned this uniform so much derision.

Had they not used the double-panel format and went with Nashville's current gold, the uniforms wouldn't be that bad.  Dare I say, it would make for a perfectly acceptable alternate for a modern franchise.  The striping is actually pretty conservative for that era and the sleeves do a much better job of creating subtle 'fangs' than the panels on the current uniforms.

 

Agree completely.  This is a jersey designed to be seen up close.  Unfortunately that "up close" doesn't mean "first row behind the glass" but "from about eighteen inches away".

Looks fantastic.  Blues should always wear these.  I hope they pull a Penguins.

I do wish that some franchises realize simpler is better most of the time

It's almost too much blue. But they are the Blues.

is the white vintage white?  Look at the cuffs of the gloves... i didnt think it from the previous leaks but this photo is making it look like vintage white.

There was no reason to taper the hem stripe on that Blues uniform, it just looks goofy.

Its a good looking uniform but the Blues current set is perfect and nowhere near the visual atrocity that was the Penguins former set.

How are you able to use an electronic device underwater? Are you one of those octopuses that can come onto land, like that one in that video that snatched up that crab? Do you have a lair that has an air pocket inside? Or do you have some high-tech Atlantean fully waterproof device? (doesn't make sense, if you're Pacific)

Yes! Another team separating the collar and the NHL logo

 

This will become a trend.

odd, why make a sweater that resembles the habs:

I'm pretty sure it's a "Walmart jersey," the other leak looks great, so let's hope!

I think they're trying to incorporate elements of this:

Or, more likely, pay homage to the vastly superior team, the Canadiens.
