NHL 2018-19

Recommended Posts

My unpopular opinion is that this is how heritage/retro jerseys should be used. Just a couple times a season.

 

Maybe they can be full time alternates for one season max. But no more than that.

 

A team like the Caps can surely deliver something new instead of their old 70s eyesores that they keep trotting out.

This is an unpopular opinion, but honestly with the D on the front instead of the wordmark those wouldn't have been so bad. Definitely better than the absolute mess they wear now.

 

Yeah.

This would have been perfect. Clean, elegant and with a clear style. It looks stylish but also mean. What they wear now is horrible to look at. All of it.

If the numbers were outlined in orange and the hems and cuffs were orange, this would be perfect.

Something like this?

i go back and forth on the Ducks identity. While I feel like the current colors have a very California/Orange County feel, the nostalgia and uniqueness of the eggplant and jade always hangs over it.

That's way better than anything they've been wearing since the move to black and orange.

The Ducks would benefit greatly by switching from Vegas Gold/khaki to athletic gold/yellow.

The NHL needs another black/yellow team, huh?

The (mighty) ducks were the team that got me into hockey, I've never fully come to terms with their rebrand but I get why it had to be done. If they had gone with something more with what you just shared I'd probably still care about them today.

I think that's too much orange. I like it with less personally.

Using just the webbed D instead of the wordmark does improve the jersey, but the other big problem that can't be fixed is just how drab those Ducks jersey looked. The current look might not be the greatest, but putting more of a focus on orange greatly colours up the jerseys.

This looks great.  Just thicken the orange striping a bit and it's perfect.  The iteration B-mer posted is too much orange and therefore too loud

That and some shoulder patches would be a remarkable improvement. But honestly, I'd rather they did away with the swooshes and use a horizontal hemstripe.

This. All this.

 

The gold-white-black-orange jersey striping was even designed to mimic the color orientation in the logo. Not using the webbed D was such a huge miss.

That gold though, yuck, to me it just comes off looking tacky. Though I suppose that has something to do from my childhood, I never liked the metallic gold crayon. Then again I’ve come to like the Saints gold. Oh crap now i’m confused.

It's a relatively boring jersey, but the swooshes give it character.

 

The swooshes work. And yes they give it some character. It's nice to see something a little different now and then and it paid homage to the mighty ducks angled hem to boot. Nice.

I think the Duck's script jersey would have been more universally derided if it didn't debut around the same time as the Buffaslug.
