Not a single third jersey so far has a version of a half collar. If Adidas has actually learned from its mistakes, will we see teams adjust them in 2019?

It's the NFL toilet bowl collar all over again

This was one of the worst things about the Adidas switchover from an aesthetic perspective. 

 

Teams were finally figuring out how to make unique and distinct collars work with the Reebok template. 

Then the Adidas template set everyone back. So teams have to go through that process all over again.

I bet some teams start introducing new home and away jerseys as early as 2019-20, to further flush out some of the Edge era designs and/or fix their collars. I think the Flyers, Isles, Sabres and Oilers all made their 3rd jersey their Home jersey in Reebok’s third season, and then introduced a matching away the next season (Oilers waited an extra year). Also the Panthers, Kings, Preds and the Leafs all changed their jerseys pretty quickly too.

So we have a black/yellow team versus a black/orange team, and the logo is mostly navy blue?

 

I think they tried to have the game played at Penn State so maybe thats why?

Tried, like they didn't actually succeed at that? *Googles to see the game is in Philly* OITGDNHL

I think they wanted to and Penn State already winterizes the stadium and its not available for use or something like that...

Probably, but OITGDNHL would a logo be designed for a special venue game before the venue had been secured.

I hope this is true, but I think we have to wait until more teams release their alternates to determine whether teams/Adidas is fixing the stupid collar.  So far, three out of the four teams that have officially released their alternates have a shoulder yoke.  I thought that most, but not all, jerseys with one had the better looking collars (as bad as they still are).  Still don't know how anyone at Adidas thought they looked good at all.

Hey, this may be a little off topic, but I may have better luck than making a new thread. Does anyone have any information about the one off game in the 93-94 season where the Hawks and Wings wore their 91-92 throwback jerseys? Did other teams revisit their 75th anniversary jerseys following that initial season?

BBTV has explained in great detail why the State College Penguins-Flyers game is a bad idea. I want to see it anyway.

Eh. It’s fine. Just so long as they don’t let it slowly become the primary coloured sweater. They’ve already made that mistake once.

Its OK, but a black Flyers jersey could look sooo much better than that.

I'm not a huge fan of the Flyers alternates. As long as they stay as an alternate, I'm okay with that.

Needs more orange to be a great Flyers’ jersey, unless there’s a really good reason for them to look like a black and white team from the stands.

The really good reason is that it's an alternate (or it was supposed to be). This is the main uniform

Exactly. That’s why I think the current one is a better third than the one you posted. Rather than relegating the team’s main color to an afterthought with a thoughtless color swap, it retains a significant place in the hierarchy while also looking markedly different than the main set.

Maybe the previous alternate doesn't have enough orange but the new one doesn't have enough white.  This short lived primary from 2007 achieves an ideal colour balance in my opinion.  It's too bad the sleeve design looks so weird from the side because from this angle it looks really nice.
