I also love when we get bright colored helmet that doesn't match the rest like Notre Dame and Ohio State, it shouldn't work but the colors are so unique I love it., 

Notre Dame’s old hockey helmets were far superior to the shiny gold helmets they use now.

Would love to see teams experiment with other helmet colours like football teams do.  Habs in Blue helmets/red socks looks odd but also cool for me to seespacer.png

 

We could also put a giant, indistinguishable sticker of the team logos on the helmet.

 

Or...we could just stick to what has worked for years.  Like they say, if it ain't broke, don't bleeping screw around with it.  What might work for one sport, doesn't necessarily work for another.

I don’t like the giant sticker used for the penguins and flyers, but ASU doesn’t look bad with it. I would actually say it elevates the look when using the large pitchfork. The large sparky is pretty ugly though.

Sure, it looks better how ASU did it compared to the Pens/Flyers, but I feel it's unnecessary and adds nothing to the overall look.

Not as a full time look. But I wouldn't mind it if teams broke out "alternate" socks or helmets once in a while. For example the Bruins could use yellow socks as an alternate (if they aren't gonna wear them full time). Florida could wear Red helmet or pants as an alternate. Canucks green pants. ect..

White helmets look good. Dark helmets with white jerseys generally look weird. I don't know why we need to change this...

 

The only time I would be for this is if the Penguins wore their yellow helmets a couple times a year with the white jerseys.  Would be a throwback nod to their white uniforms in the 1980s.

I think this is generally correct but sometimes theres exceptions. All of the youth blue jackets In Columbus wear navy helmets and I think they really work well with the navy arms of the away jersey. The blue jackets also use the look during the rookie tournament.

Hard pass.  Those uniforms have enough problems.  They don't need the helmet throwing off the color balance even more.

That’s due to lack of equipment/ not wanting to spend extra money for rookie tournament that some people won’t make the team for. Professional Hockey looks best with dark helmets with colored jerseys and white helmets with white jerseys.

No. Teams shouldn’t mix and match elements because teams can’t be trusted to pick the best set, as evidence by the Montreal pic above. You know there is going to be one team that will wear the equivalent to color rush 90% of home games because they think it looks cool.

It still amazes me that it took the Penguins six years to figure out "Oh, the numbers should go down here on the sleeves instead." I'm also surprised that any company would want to take credit for the lousy iron-on numbering from this era.

as someone who played for youth blue jackets I know that its lack of equipment, that does not mean it is a bad look. Normally professional Hockey looks best with dark helmets with colored jerseys and white helmets with white jerseys but my whole point is there are exceptions.

Can we bring back the orange for the NHL logo? It had more personality then the bland silver one we have now, IMO.

 

Since the league insists on having the league logo on the jersey collars, I'd rather see each team use the crest in their own respective colourway, with the black & silver being the default look. It works for MLB & MLS.

I like it as a change of pace every so often (kind of like how the Texas Rangers switch hats). For some reason this look made me think of the Blackhawks but with Blue instead of black
