2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

It's a beautiful jersey for sure.  Aesthetically, the Bruins are the class of the league.

The Islanders in navy and the Penguins in  vegas gold. No. 

 

Both teams look great now. The athletic gold and royal blue really pop on camera. 

 

Absolutely, no contest.

Florida's jerseys are better than I originally thought. Especially the whites. They aren't perfect, and I still miss the old logo but, but the new jerseys are pretty good overall.

Viewed from the front, these are some of the best in the league, but the lack of back stripe kills the colour balance and ruins the look.

I attended a Panthers game here in Tampa early in the season and was surprised at how much more legible the higher shoulder numbers were than the traditionally placed ones. From the second level it was clear what the smaller number was, have to squint to figure out the Lightning's. A+ to that change.

i agree the white ones are really winning me over, and i was not a fan of the rebrand at all. The red ones are still a little too canadiens/flames for me though.

Going back to the fishermen jerseys, it doesn't get anymore nautical then this.

I feel seasick just looking at them. And I live in water!

Seriously those jerseys were epic and were unfairly maligned by a fan base that numbers in the hundreds.

Wow, its like someone messed with the colors in photoshop to make it more "washed out" in the first one.

 

I can't say I'm a huge fan of the Islanders unis due to all of the jersey-->pants-->socks striping inconsistencies and a kind of boring outdated logo, But the difference here is just so striking. Royal blue looks great against the white and yellow. The Penguins unis continue to look more beautiful every time that I see them. The way the yellow sleeves look on the white jersey base is so nice, i think it's now one of the best road looks in the league, even with the annoying mismatched sock stripes.

I don't get the flack the Islanders get here for their logo being "boring" and "out-dated" yet people cream themselves over the Habs, Bruins, Flyers, Oilers, and Sabres which are all equally dated looking and unexciting.  

 

Teams are a product of the eras in which their born. Typically, if they have some modicum of success in a particular look it becomes an identity and sticks with them. The Islanders had a ton of success in that look, it's who they are.  That look defines not just that team's identity but also an era in hockey history.  

 

The fisherman while "fun" and very 90's (teal!) but was like a sick joke to the fanbase and is associated with a team that went from one who went deep into the Playoffs to one who became a laughingstock trading away all it's legitimate prospects for other team's bags of magic beans.  That Reebok Edge "clownfish" look is a close second in the most hated looks department.

I really wish they would've gone withca St. Pats script that read Maple Leafs if they wanted to go this route.

That material looks like it's almost see-through.  Looks overall like a crappy knock off.

The levels of inception just get deeper. Now we have real Maple Wings.

Wow, a "heritage" game with two complete swing-and-a-miss jerseys from established franchises. How disappointing!

THAT's a 100th anniversary game!

 

Or I'm still waiting for a blue version of these gems,

But rather, Toronto wants to look like Montreal, so, whatever.
