For Bruins, I hope the change is very simply to move the stripes to the hem at the bottom of the jersey again, just as they had in the 70s and 80s.

My wish would be to return to the design they wore from the mid 70s to the mid 90s.

My main gripe with the Edge design is the big swath of black or white material below the bottom stripe.

I can understand those sentiments, but the 80s/early 90s set was so unbalanced with the gold socks.  And when the Edge unis first came out I didn't like the space at the bottom of the hems either, but it grew on me real fast and it doesn't bother me the least.  I really feel they look the best they have in my lifetime.   A fairly modern look for an O6 team that doesn't look dated in any way. 

 

Now that this sort of thing is paid more attention to, I feel if they were to make any sweeping changes they'd try to make themselves stand further apart from Pittsburgh, now that they've gone retro.  In all honesty, if they ever do change I'd like to see something new, but hesitate because i don't think it could be as good as what they have now.

Oh Edmonton, you had it right and then you have to go and change it.

 

Orange home and now Navy over royal blue... ugh

One step forward and ten steps backward.

Honestly, I cant think of any jersey in their history that is better than the current Bruins set now.

 

 

Also, hopefully the sabres ditch silver, return to royal. I can live with front numbers, but wouldnt be sad if they left.

I sorely miss the gold B crest on the blacks and even the white pants striping. Overall, I totally agree regarding the '70's-'90's sets. When the Bruins changed their uniforms to the Winnie the Pooh set when they first moved into the TD Garden(then the Fleet Center), it's like as if Jacobs and Sinden gave the iconic Boston Garden the middle finger.

Disappointed not to see the Canucks on the list as I was hoping the arched Vancouver script from the jerseys was gone. 

 

Along with the corporate orca and Agency font.

Yeah I don't see how they could if there isn't a new primary logo.   I would love this though:

*censored* that's beautiful.

 

Not sure if it's a credit to the jersey, or how long we've been looking at hot garbage Avs unis.

Ha, thanks.

 

For me it fixes a lot of the flaws in the third sweater:  

  • It lightens the red so the whole uniform isn't so dark.  
  • It adds in the far superior A logo.  
  • Fixes the numbers to include silver and tie in that color better.  
  • It adds the far superior foot/yeti shoulder logo back AND to both sides to balance the sweater.

So..... Orange & Navy for the Oilers? I didn't know they were the Islanders.

I agree.  I remember when these were made on here.  The A logo, since it has more white, balances out the jersey so much better as a whole, aside from being just better.  The silver is such a great touch on the numbers.  This would be a satisfying new uniform, i guess as long as a white version matched up well.

I'd welcome one of the orange and royal blue teams wearing navy blue instead, but I'd pick the Islanders out of those two teams and leave the Oilers as is. 

 

I always liked these Islanders uniforms

Thanks and it really would be a satisfying new uniform for them.  BUT, knowing this team's design choices lately, I am truly expecting the worst.  IE, removing the piping but adding in other Adidas quirks.  Keeping the lack of stripes to separate the burgundy and blue.

The only thing i'd like to see, if this were a route they go, is to keep burgundy the primary color.  This is just more "Avs" (sorry to clog with concepts)

EDIT: a poorly made white version

I'd like to see this as the Bruins away (with black helmets):

And a white alternate based on this look:

I wouldn't... The Bruins have one of the best road jerseys in the league, even with the large sleeve cuff...

 

I wouldn't mind if they removed the shoulder patches though. Even though I like them, they clutter up the classic look Boston has going on...

Ugh. Was buying an authentic victory green sweater a bad idea?

 

What changes could we possibly make?

Outlines on the name and numbers on back and sleeves?
