Not gonna lie, I still would love it if the Blue Jackets used the Ohio flag at some point on their arms/shoulders/inside the collar/etc. Such a unique, Ohio-ey thing.

When I look at a Calgary fames jersey I can say it's proud be from Canada and Alberta. They take pride in where they come from like no other team does. They are  thinking out side box when they made that idea. So what if people who don't like the flag idea. It's was made for the fan of the c of red. To show them they are Alberta strong with what their team name means to the provinces. Its show your true colours for team like the flames. Alberta strong with the Calgary Flames.

I believe we will only see the home jerseys tomorrow night with each team showing their roads at the draft. Is this confirmed?

Yeah, it's only going to be the home uniforms tomorrow, sadly. The road uniforms will be released at each team's discretion from what I understand.

Can confirm that it follows the design I've seen, except it's missing the numbers on the upper part of the sleeves.

Any chance this means we'll see the jerseys without numbers tomorrow? I remember they did that with a handful of World Cup jerseys, and it was SUPER annoying.

I'm sure the designer left that part out considering they don't have access to the new font being used :P

Nah, I think they'll have numbers. They have numbers in the promo photos that I've seen so far.

 

Not sure about the uniforms that will actually be on display at the event, though.

The collars are probably going to ruin everything IMO.

 

My thoughts too. :unsure:

I despise the orca and will continue to refuse to buy anything with that logo on it. Hugely disappointed as a canucks fan to not see some of the bugs not worked out of our current set. If ownership are dead set on sticking with that logo then I wish they'd at least make it look like it matches the rest of the jersey and less "clip artish" It sticks out so bad without any green and dark blue almost black whale. Also ditch the current European style font and go back to our traditional block font.

 

Something along the lines of a concept I created a few years ago...

I think the Flames and CSEC (the name of the ownership) might be one of the most, if not the most, tone deaf sports groups around.

 

Fans want to get rid of the flags and go retro, Flames don't go retro and keep the flags.

 

Fans don't want the black away helmets, Stampeders keep wearing the black helmets.

 

The Roughnecks drop their fan favourite mascot Derrick, the guy on their logo, in favour of Howie the Honey Badger. This change happening the same time the "Honey badger don't give a :censored:" video being viral, though no official connection has been made. The Roughnecks also switched from some great uniforms to templated garbage much like the Flames.

 

The Hitmen switched from good uniforms to templated garbage (Ottawa with sleeve stripes) to better templated garbage (Buffalo but with the chest piping only on the white jersey for some reason). They also had the stupidest ad campaign/promotion motto last year called "Pure Hockey" which was basically "hockey bro". There was a commercial where a couple players were trying to go "bardownski" and you could buy shirts that said "Dangle Snipe Celly" and "Dangle Pylons".

For those who hate links:

See, I think the collars are fine in this context. That is, when the base of the collar is the same as the base of the jersey, and the contrast color is the smaller part at the top. This will also look good on the roads, assuming the collar is exactly the same and will blend with the blue shoulders. 

 

If this particular collar was entirely red, I think it would look bad, because it's a bit bulky, so if teams do a totally contrasting design, then we might have some issues. Similar effect to the way-too-big Nike NFL flywire collars.

 

What is most interesting to me is how the designs with lace-up elements will look. Will there be an entirely new shape to those collars, or will they keep this exact template seen above, with the pentagon shaped NHL shield "holder" being positioned slightly behind the laces?

I was so to hopping retro would come back. Flames new jersey are probably going be one of most look at redesign jersey since no body has a idea what they done. Look at pass history flames never done red collar, always been black or red and yellow.

 

The retro jersey look so much better on tv, then there home jersey. Even when you go to a Flames game you even see lot of fan wearing the retro jersey to.

If @Ferdinand Cesarano needs to correct people who use the phrase "begs the question", he'd have a field day with this post!

Seven minutes into the day of the release and no huge leaks. I'm actually impressed with the NHL's organizations and Adidas. 

 

Now. We wait...

And now you know why Edwards, Burke, and King think they can get CalgaryNEXT built with public funds.

I really hope not. It looks like you pasted the Orca over the third jerseys, and the striping on the third jerseys is awful.
