NHL 2017-18

It's overly detailed and cartoony. It's a weird shape as well and will look terrible shrunk down ala Dallas' logo. Overall, it's not good.

Sharks wore this for warm-ups for some reason. Wonder if the logo will be on the 3rds next season

 

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I really don't like this logo. It looks more like an illustration than a logo...basically Jacksonville Jaguars: NHL Edition.

I think it's a step in the right direction, but it's not quite there. 

 

One of the things that bothers me about the current logo is how the back tapers off into the corner of the triangle. It took me a while to realize that's what the current logo was trying to accomplish, rather than the first logo, where it's obvious the shark is coming from the corner of the triangle. This new logo shows a side view, rather than an overhead view and the tapering looks more natural. The edge of the shark is pretty clean to if you wanted to add a triangle. 

 

If the Sharks want to promote this logo, add the classic broken stick, get rid of the corny "S Fin," and possibly add a triangle.

This crest might look really good on a new jersey set. Not the straight up retros, but a mix of old and current with silver replacing orange as the tertiary color. I'm fine with keeping orange for the eye color only.

I think as soon as a logo starts introducing shading into its design - it's too detailed.

Due to the tragedy that happened in Saskatchewan involving the Humboldt Broncos junior team, both the Blackhawks and Jets wore Broncos on the back of their jerseys instead of their usual names.  Really unfortunate what happened.

That was a good gesture. Am I correct in understanding they wore them for the entire game? Not just warmups?

Didn't think this warranted its own thread so I'm posting here. I stumbled upon this alternate logo for the Buffalo Destroyers arena football league team from 1999-2003. 

 

I think I found Buffaslug's father

* Vegas v LA

* Minn v Winnipeg

* Toronto v Boston

They all look great.

 

Right up until that last one.  Man, did sweater design take a wrong turn in 2007.

I thinks Avs-Preds will look great, despite Nashville’s recent downgrade. We haven’t seen this uniform matchup ever in the playoffs, and both teams are among the most unique looking of the remaining teams.

Boston vs Toronto is pure class, Nashville vs Colorado looks better than it has any right to and the only match-up that could be deemed bad is Anaheim vs San Jose.

Pens/Flyers, Bruins/Leafs, and Wild/Jets are probably the best of the bunch. 

 

Every other match-up has at least one stinker in there, with Ducks/Sharks and Caps/Jackets tied for the basement. .

Sharks AHL team worse black jerseys last night and I feel they looked so much better than the Sharks black version did.

If I'm not mistaken, one of the members here, @Puckguy14 had a hand in designing the Barracuda jerseys. They look sharp!

If that's its father than this has got to be its grandfather:

This logo was from a Buffalo PR campaign from the 80s.

I’ve always been a proponent that the Capitals Edge look was a solid modern design, but the Adidas switch really hurt these jerseys. The ‘boxier’ template gives much less of a ‘swooping’ impression that the piping on the previous template accentuated. And the piping not tapering towards the collar makes the piping appear thinner and inconsequential. And of course the piping doesn’t start from the collar anymore but just randomly interrupts.
