Don't know if they were planning on wearing them, but we won't see the Lightning wear their third jersey.

Carolina's thirds look dumb. Looks like they belong in some minor league.

Are shoulder patches put on by team's individual equipment managers? I ask because of the upside down shoulder patch on Necas's jersey. How does this kind of thing happen?

From everything I've ever seen, jerseys come in form the manufacturer with the crests all sewn on. Team/team customizes may add sponsor patches or anything that is not part of way the jersey ships "standard." With the Hurricane's logo being essentially symmetrical, it's easy to see how someone who was sewing several of these in a row put it on upside down and didn't notice. It would be something else if they put the Penguins logo on upside down, for example, as that's not a logo that could essentially be "either way" if you weren't looking closely.

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

What are the rumored options?? I’ve been worrying a lot about the Blackhawks and what they’ll do to those collars...

 

To me they just need to complete the thicker collar collar through the NHL logo (for example the background of the NHL logo would be white on the home jerseys, not red). I’m worried they’re going to go with skinny lines and half collars, or even worse ties, but that was before I knew there are rumored other options..

They'll hopefully go back to what the collars were like before the adidas takeover

I think that’s highly unlikely, but then again, I don’t have any more information than you. I think most likely, they will just fill in the white parts on the home jersey red, and the red parts on the road jersey white, or just copy the Senators.

At the minor league level its possible.  When I worked for the Brevard County Manatees in 2008, we had to go to a local company to have Brewers patches sewn on the sleeves.

Other teams should follow the Blackhawks and fix their collars too. The red on the Rangers home collar sticks out like a sore thumb.

I think we should wait until the reveal before we assume the Blackhawks collar is "fixed". For all we know we are getting a half toilet bowl collar. If the team let the collar get downgraded in the first place, we shouldn't trust that any following change is good until proven so.

Yep...Fix the collars; get rid of the waffle-board yokes; do away with the double seams on the drop shoulders...

Just dont make the entire collar a different colour to the jersey. It looks ridiculous. Even the half collars look dumb to me, especially the canucks who dont evn have a thin white collar to connect it to anything.

Battle of the nitpicks:

 

I recognize we’re a long way from a Cup matchup, but which change-for-change’s-sake would bother you more to become “canonized”—the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup in black socks or the Blues winning the Stanley Cup with white numbers?

The white numbers are fine. The black socks remind me of my local team that tried emulating the Bruins look except they went with Penguins socks instead.

I used to dislike those socks (basically because this board told me they were bad) but now I don't mind them at all.

 

They make the yellow on the shoulders stronger.

Remind me, what's wrong with the white numbers? I've been watching the Blues for most of this season and I've never considered them, much less found reason for complaint.

The Blues home jerseys had yellow numbers every year of their existence until last year.

What's right with them? They always had yellow numbers on royal blue. It looked good.
