NHL 2017-18

Recommended Posts

Will be interesting to see how much the Lightning use the fan input when designing the next jersey. As long as the BOLTS wordmark never comes back, they are already improving.

Interesting. Adidas has decided to divest themselves of CCM:

Wait, so who's going to make the new jerseys then?

 

Can the NHL void the contract with Adidas and just have CCM redesign a new template?

 

Please?

 

No?  Oh........

So what happens with the AHL?

 

Nothing should change with the AHL.  They extended their deal last year.  I wouldn't be surprised then if CCM has their own seperate deal to produce the vintage jerseys.

Best that I've heard is that Adidas is keeping the jersey and apparel/clothing stuff, equipment and sticks and such is what was sold off. Backed up by 'business as usual' chatter from my licensed sales (read: apparel) rep and...quite the opposite from both retail and pro equipment guys.

Oh I see what they've done here... perhaps they're smarter than we think? But I doubt it. Also, still fugly.

Up until the last few days the only digits I've seen in the Blue Jackets new number font were the 1 and the 7, and those are the two digits that are probably the hardest to glean any kind of visual information as to what the rest of the font will look like. But then they started posting these videos of a daily countdown on their instagram page so we should have the full font soon.

With the 2 and 0 you can kind of get a sense for what the 3, 5, 6, 8, and 9 will look like. Hoping for a closed 4.

these look good but they just need to do something to the logo to give it some depth, like an outline or something 

 

I disagree. Those are fantastic uniforms; an exceedingly appropriate historical update to make them more unique.

 

The solid color logo coordinates perfectly with the clean, bold stripes. It’s the numbers with all the outlines that look out of place on that uniform. The edges look blurry because there’s so much trim. Solid white and solid blue numbers would work better with the jersey design. The depth and uniqueness should come from the design of the numbers themselves. I think they can separate themselves with something unique that’s not a block number.

I can’t remember for certain, but I’m pretty sure, almost positive it is closed.

They should make the back of the jersey look like a cape.

Eh, if they went Czech Republic-esque by filling in the half collar and the yoke following the dividing line with classic striping, I think it could work.
