Pit-NYI will be my favorite matchup.

Pittsburgh/New York is probably the best overall matchup, but the games in Colorado will be pretty nice too. I don't particularly like the Flames' regular home/away set but they look pretty decent now, without the stupid piping. Plus, the Avs' home unis are perfect.

nor will I ever appreciate Columbus' overused colour scheme

Huh? The Blue Jackets are the only team in the NHL with a navy home jersey accented in red.

 

There are only three teams in the NHL that use navy and red, and both the others (Capitals and Panthers) wear red.

 

Hell, there are only three teams in the NHL now that wear navy at home, period (Jets and Sabres).

 

It is far from an overused scheme.

That might be true but in the end it's just a variation of the tired, patriotic, red, white and blue scheme that's be done to death.

I'd really like to see Nashville and Dallas do colour vs colour.

 

Last one colour vs colour - Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames 1989 Smythe Division Semifinal.

Throwing my hat into the "Nashville and Dallas should absolutely go color rush in this series" ring. I can't think of a single good reason why teams don't do this!

I just saw the NHLPA's Twitter account posted this picture today as they promote tonight's series openers:

When I saw the sleeve numbers on the Blues, I realized it was not this year's uniform, but then I noticed they included the updated (white) captain's C on Pietrangelo.

I think teams should normally wear their dark jerseys at home, but I wonder if Winnipeg would be allowed to wear their white jersey to complete the white out?

I have said it before, but I think the NHL should allow teams to designate any set as the "home" uniform for the playoffs. This way teams like Winnipeg or Arizona can wear white to match their fans.

 

As long as it is communicated ahead of time, it shouldn't cause any equipment logistics issues, as a team like St. Louis would know to pack their blue jerseys/socks/helmets instead of the white. In fact it may make things easier for equipment managers, as they might only need to worry about 1 set for the entire series.

I had a thought recently where the NHL would adopt a sweater rule similar to the minor leagues (AHL, ECHL, or both) where theres a point in the season where the rules flip.

 

Teams start the season as things are right now, with dark and home and white on road (barring any agreements between teams), then after the All Star break it flips to white at home and dark on the road.  Then once playoffs kick in, like @spartacat_12 said teams will designate a "home jersey" whether white. dark, or alternate and would stick with it thru the playoffs.

I'm in favour of darks being worn at home during the season. You should be wearing your colours when you are at a home and the visiting team should be the ones wearing the generic (generic as in all teams have a white jersey) jersey.

 

Some people here say "whites at home are better so you can see the other team's colours" but speaking as someone who's family has season tickets to the Hitmen where the WHL flips halfway through, I don't care about the other team's colours. I'm not there to see Brandon or Swift Current and I'm not missing out on anything by not seeing Red Deer wearing their darks.

I like the way junior hockey does it.  The flip happens after Christmas.  Good compromising solution to those who want to see their team wear white at home and those that want to see dark at home.

I've never understood the "see other team's colors" argument. As much as I do enjoy the aesthetics of a hockey uniform, I'm ultimately there to see good hockey be played. I could give a :censored: what the teams are wearing at the end of the day as long as I see some good hockey played.

Good looking uniforms and good hockey aren’t mutually exclusive. Why not ask for both? It’s kinda the point of this board.

Why did the NHL switch away from white jerseys at home?  I prefer the white at home for hockey not because of seeing other teams colors, it's moreso that teams white jerseys tend to be the better set to me.
