No argument from me. Just put the A-Mountain crest on the front, the Colorado C on the shoulders, replace the black trim with silver and go with burgundy helmets and pants and it's timeless.

No.

I guess if you like staring at the wall of a preschool classroom you might feel differently.

So basically change about 70% of it and it's timeless. Ok, got it.

"Make a generic CCSLC concept jersey and it would be timeless!"

 

I'm not sure all-burgandy looks that great, especially with three supporting colors.

It's really no different than the Coyotes' having an all-brick red look. The OHL Peterborough Petes have worn all-burgundy/maroon for years.

 

The blue in the Avalanche's scheme would be the primary secondary colour with silver providing minor accents.

The Petes are burgandy and white. And the Coyotes found out that the all-brick red look sucked and brought back black pants.

Much like the Lightning now need to do.

I think we all have some sense that the Lightning would look way better if they used more black and even included silver again.

I'm still a little surprised Tampa has never used electric blue as a color, especially since it's literally a representation of lightning. Plus using a bright shade of it would solve the whole "literally looks exactly like Toronto" problem if they didn't want to add black again.

Their original shade was electric blue. They quietly switched to Toronto's shade of royal after a few seasons.

That was a bad idea, IMHO. The light blue would give them a bit more of a visual flair, one that could carry over into the current design.

 

Also, I don’t think the Avs going all-burgundy would be a bad idea. What makes it different from the Red Wings in all-red?

The electric blue looked really good their first few seasons, as it was light enough to contrast with the black. 

Then they switched to a darker shade and it just muddled things.

IMO, the all-red Red Wings look is far inferior to the away white uniform with the carved out shoulders; but besides that, the home uniform is just too much red. I think the Red Wings would look better with beige pants, tbh. 

 

I like hockey uniforms that use the pants as a color balance (especially non-black unis), rather than color saturation (e.g. the Rangers and Blackhawks look better with different color pants). So in my view, the black pants work really well for the Avs (who don't share the Red Wings' two-color style). It makes the jersey stand out rather than blend in with the helmet and the pants.

They used that original shade for almost ten years, actually.

Yeah, i thought it was around 2001-2002 when they dropped the paintbrush numbers and started using the block numbers.

The Lightning have always used a dark royal blue with their classic black originals. I have an old CCM replica Lightning jersey from '93. I always wondered why the Bolts couldn't use an actual electric blue like the NBA's Orlando Magic or the Blues' original shade of electric blue.

Canucks wore the flying v jerseys for warm ups this afternoon against the Sabres, while wearing the black skate jerseys for a bonus game.
