It looks like it may have been reshaped slightly as compared to this picture off of a authentic Reebok throwback.

If they ditched the black, than it's a disaster.

 

If that's indeed the case, then it means that the designers don't care about hockey and only followed instructions to claim a paycheck.

I don't think you read what those two pictures were.  The picture with the green logo was a Reebok throwback.

Somewhat mildly interesting that the Sens' French teaser is a different wording and uses the NHL logo not the LNH, especially since the branding for English is identical across all teams

I'm guessing we'll get away versions of this tease too.

 

It would be the same thing but with a white background. Not much point, really.

Anything on that new secondary look the sharks came out with last year?

 

I've never seen it used.

You forgot to mention the byline:

Ha, I didn't even notice that

It would also be the best damned logo the Vancouver Canucks ever had.

 

Figures an octopus would be anti-cetacean.

This is the problem with trying to please a fan base who is so stupidly intent on constantly screaming for what they want their identity to look like. You end up with crap like this, potentially. They'd be better off ignoring everyone, forever, and just sticking with the Orca. At least it's a competent logo.

Right everyone who doesn't like the Orca is a screaming idiot, and the Canucks should just stick with the Orca forever because coincidentally its the one you like.

The more I think on it, the more i hope the canucks never change.

 

I like them exactly the way they are, with the possible exception of taking off the vancouver script. Even that isnt as bad as it used to be

 

This.  The reason the Canucks have had such an identity crisis is because they've been unable to commit to a look.  The current configuration is actually the first time a jersey set of theirs will pass a ten year anniversary untouched.  The colours are great, the Orca is solid, the striping honors their history and the arched script has become their thing.

The arched script also was a uniform element used by the pre-NHL Canucks.

Looks also there is a million more possibilities to make things wrong/worse. So maybe no change is a good change.

i hope the NHL doesn't do on December 19th 2017 some kind of turn ahead the clock type thing.  a throwback night for every team would be nice (or some kind of throwback looking jersey, like the Rays).

I think the whole thing to remember is that Underwhelming is Good!

 

Being boring or not living up to expectation is far better than garish and ugly.

I think it'd be cool if the O6 did a throwback...similar to 1991-92.

Besides Minnesota, are there any other teams with changes confirmed by the teasers?
