NHL 2018-19

Recommended Posts

If you look at the Flyers helmet, it reminds me of the Eagles helmet. Or at least the logo placement is similar.

 

I understand Adidas wanted to have a consistent look for both teams, but I kind of wish the Pens only had the logo on one side with the yellow stripe down the middle.

These are obviously pretty bad, but it could open the door to some teams having some interesting, well integrated designs on their helmets for special jerseys down the road. Things that aren't just the logo enlarged and slapped on the side.

 

I'm thinking more along the lines of Kings having a crown, Canucks a toque, Blackhawks feathers, Devils horns, that kind of thing.

 

The NLL does it, sometimes well, sometimes not so well

Again, I'm not advocating it, I'm sure 9 times out of 10 it will look terrible, but I'm not opposed to teams trying some designs out for one offs like outdoor games.

Turns out the Pens helmets are like that, only with no yellow stripe.

Surprised it took this long to see "designed" helmets in the NHL. I don't really think the logos work, but wouldn't mind seeing stripes similar to what colleges do.

I don’t know if there’s a sports design trend I dislike more than the ‘large logo on one side, number on the other side’ that we see here and in every third college football game.

The outdoor game helmets remind me of Tron for some reason.

Flyers, Penguins Wearing Helmets With Giant Logos for Stadium Series

February 23, 2019 - 03:46 AM

If there’s anything we’ve come to expect from the National Hockey League’s Stadium Series it’s that the uniforms will feature something we’ve never seen before. From “chromified” logos to stadium-sized players numbers to white pants with a white jersey, each year […]

You missed the worst one.

Also, Georgia's is incredibly busy, but because they worked with the lines of the helmet, it works.

I can’t say I like either helmet, but I like the idea of doing something more than a small nearly invisible logo on the helmet. Maybe the NHL can take a page from college hockey and start doing more unique helmets such as these. veMCCBi.jpg

I have to see it in context but my initial suspicion is that it will look too busy and/or tacky.

Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State. I’m not up on my college hockey helmets—anyone I’m missing? It’s not like there are a ton of striped hockey helmets, and those helmets are all derivative of a popular football program. That said, it’s at least 3 more than the NHL.

 

I think the only NHL I’d like to see a designed helmet for is Calgary. 🔥

These helmets are what happens when you try to cater to the Fortnite generation of kids who can’t keep their attention on one thing for more than 10 seconds. Hockey needs to get back to catering to their diehard fans, and not this millenial crap

There's no extra money in diehard fans. Innovation has to continue. Plus it's one game.

You realize the NHL will need fans in 40 or 50 years, right?

 

There's quite the disconnect in "Why can't the NHL get better ratings" and "We should only cater to the diehards." 

 

One day hockey fans will realize Fox was 30 years ahead of its time with digital tracking. 

 

 

Anyway, colored helmets (blue, black, navy, et al) always look great in outdoor lighting. Seems like they're super glossy or something.

I’m aware. I don’t understand why it’s difficult to get kids to like sports....for sports, and why we always have to go the extra mile with nonsense.

Well remember the forward pass was "nonsense"
