Remember the (Mighty) Ducks the year before wore their alternates at home. I hated that and I felt it would have been unfortunate if they went to the finals wearing those.

Even earlier than that, the Ducks quietly swapped the thirds with the homes around the midpoint of that season. So they were effectively wearing their "home" uniforms for the playoffs.

 

Thanks, Burke. <_<

I don’t recall the Rangers (or Bruins) wearing their thirds in the 1996 playoffs, but I’m pretty sure the Pens did in 1997. I believe this pic is after Lemieux’s breakaway goal in game 4 of the 1997 Pens-Flyers series:

This wasn't it, btw. This was:

 

 

However, to the broader point, the Penguins did wear those sweaters at least once in that series. 

 

 

So there is that.

It seems like the Flyers wear the terrible black alternate uniform every home game. I have a bad feeling that the black uniforms will become the standard home look just like they were in the early 2000s.

No what they’ve got now are pretty much perfect.

And how about the Canucks in 2007. Were they ever punished for swapping sets in the playoffs?

 

Well first off, was that rule even on the books back then and is it even a rule, or just a guideline/direction? Secondly, what kind of punishment would you see fit?

One of the biggest goals in Pens history, from the 96 playoffs, wearing the thirds.

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I really liked those Ducks alternates. Still do.

 

i still always wanted them to make a traditional update to the wild wing jersey though.

Unpopular Opinion: This is the best jersey the Flames have ever worn. The home red during this period had too much black, but a set built around this sweater would be outstanding.

!00% agree with you.  The only truely good look they have had...

I prefer their original look.

But those are the second best look they had--minus the flaming snot bald horse.

I'm not sure how unpopular that is, because it seems like people love that set for some reason. I never really liked it at all, but I do think that the white/home that you posted is far and away the best of that set. 

 

Here's a my unpopular opinion: I actually prefer the diagonal stripes mid-90's Flames jersey over this one. Their "original" is still my favorite of theirs, though.

I really miss this triple-striped collar style.

Hopefully it will make a proper return with the rumored new collar option(s) coming next season

I feel like the conference logos aren't used all that much anymore, so I thought it was weird seeing it in the Flames graphic.

Those conference logos are terrible. They look so cartoonish.

Agreed.  They were never good.  Not even when they were introduced right before THE lockout.

Those Conference logos got outdated when they updated the Stanley Cup logo in 2008, 2 years after they were introduced. How they’ve managed to hang around for over a decade is beyond me.

The 3 stars on both the Conference and SC Final logo don’t even make sense anymore since they reformatted to 2 divisions.

Agreed.  I'm glad this SCF design only lasted two years.  Time to send the conference logos to the same trash-bin.
