Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

You do realize the original jersey had 6 colors, right? (Eggplant, Jade, Silver, Black, White and Yellow).

 

But the base, striping and shoulder patches only used 4. Those three here use all 7.

 That has absolute zero to do with it.  It's black because that is now and has been their primary color, then mix in the colors from their history. 

It's that simple and nothing to read into.

 

How would you know? ? It’s legit the most NHLeist explanation there could possibly be, and actually a really common thing to see. They cheaped out because they didn’t wanna justify the extra expense. That’s normally some BS you’d see in a lower level minor league, but the NHL basically operates like a poorly run side show, even as a member of “The big 4”, so it kinda fits their MO to a T.

 

If you’re so sure it’s not, then bet me. I could always use some of your money!

I can't tell... is the body of the jersey black?

 

It’s either blue and black, or white and gold. It just depends on who you ask.

I hope the rest of the equipment brings more eggplant. I think I'm more positive than negative, but I have the same gripe that I had with the Sabres' recent Winter Classic unis... the yoke, NOB, and numbers are all missing an important color, and it makes it look like a different jersey in that chunk (and a jersey of a divisional rival, at that).

Love it. Don't think it needs the yokes though.

That’s just them justifying using the silver triangle over the jade or gold.

It comes across as pure Nikespeak. Which would be an appoprite nod to the Nike alternates. 

 

Yes, we’re keeping the same exact color for an element of the primary logo that we wore on our dark sweaters for a decade because of the silver passion of Orange County it’s our birthday!

They had a throwback night for the 20th anniversary, where they got specials helmets and pant shells, for a single game. 

 

This is simply them wanting to mish-mash eras.

Question now is whether they simply stick with the regular black pants with the thin orange stripe, which doesn't go with the rest of the jersey, 2) do what Minnesota eventually did and drop the stripe altogether so they didn't need to keep switching, 3) use a black shell?

I'm just glad the duck/mask logo is back. I always thought it was clever even though many people thought it was a cartoon logo. I wished they would have kept the orange third jersey with this logo and made a white version. I just read that the Ducks will wear the Orange jerseys again in 19-20 and made by Adidas. Still, especially if you've read my NBA uniform rants(each team having 56 uniforms), I wish these leagues would just have home and away uniforms especially with all the player movement, we really are rooting for the laundry(sorry Seinfeld). The laundry is a teams identity. I know it will always be about money but when I turned on that Utah Jazz game this past year, I thought the Houston Astros were playing a charity game.

So how long until this 3rd becomes their new home jersey for w/ a matching white set?

 

It's only being worn this season. Word is they're bringing back the orange third next year.

 

... And then that discussion can start aaaaallll over again ?

I really like it, and think its better than their current home/away set by a long margin.

The Ducks are now taking preorders from local fans only.

 

And in the most classic OITGDNHL fashion, their Anaheim Team Store website keeps crashing.
