Winter Classic Concept

Recommended Posts

With the murky home/road situation for this year's Winter Classic, I decided it would be a perfect time to try a colour vs. colour matchup, the Buffalo Sabres in gold and the New York Rangers in the shade of navy used in the logos they released yesterday. I used Reebok's vintage wool collar on the Adidas template.

 

For the Sabres, I modelled the design after their original sock striping. I inverted the colours and added white accents, and used a white version of the new Buffalo logo. To uncluster the design, I removed a stripe set from the hem and moved the numbers to the shoulders. Like the 2016 Bruins, I only used the NY logo on the helmet.

 

For the Rangers, I decided to use their classic three-stripe pattern from the 80s and 90s. I used straight, simple lettering on the back, and the white version of the new NY logo. I simplified the pant striping while keeping it red, and put the Winter Classic logo on the chest to match the Sabres jersey.

New York looks perfect, except for the logo.

The idea for Buffalo is great, but there's something that I can't put my finger on that's not completely selling it for me. Otherwise, this would be a great match-up I would want to see on the ice.

I love this, but I’m pretty sure that the Rangers are required to wear a light uniform because of said “murky home situation” so is there a way we can a white version of the Rangers uniform?

I'm not sure if that's the case, but here's a white version anyway.

Second version is really nice, as is the first. I would say something about the thinness of the Sabres' striping, but it fits the early 1900s theme perfectly.

 

Do you have a .png version of the Sabre's logo you could PM to me? I can't find it anywhere.
