NHL changes 2019-20

Stupid question: do the Knights have a very dark green sweater? I saw one of their games and maybe it was the lighting, but what I thought was gray seemed to be very dark green.

No. It’s dark grey, although when the logos first game out most of us thought it was a dark teal. It’s definitely one of those shades which can look different every time you look at it.

It’s a dark grey w/ a teal hue to it.

Please be a full jersey of the gold they use on their arms.

Yes, please! Hopefully after a year or two they'll make it their regular home sweater and make the grey the alternate.

There is no teal hue to it. That was a bad screen conversion of the spot color.

IF this gold jersey turns out looking good, I could totally see them adopting it as their full time home sweater.

Came across this potential leak of the Sens returning to the old 2-D centurion logo for next season. Not sure if it means it'll be back to being the full-time primary, or if it will just be a heavily used alternate like the =O= was a couple years ago (on the draft caps, centre ice, etc.).

Gold makes sense given that they are the Golden Knights. But when has a vegas gold jersey looked good in any sport? Was Nashville the last team to try it in the NHL with the gold mesh over blue jersey?

They have a perfectly good modern 2D centurion that they choose not to use. 

 

I don't understand that ownership...

I would buy those hats if they didn’t have the city’s name on the front like that. Would be much cleaner without the names.

Even that wasn’t a Vegas gold, but an actual athletic gold that turned mustard with the navy underneath

Hold up, why is Tampa the only one without the city’s name?

It is especially redundant for the Canucks, who still kept the arched city name over logo.

Yeah, the Preds have always worn yellow, never metallic gold.

IIRC, our old friend TruColor has the RGB values showing higher amounts of blue and green than red. I'm sure he gets his info directly from the franchise and/or league records.

 

EDIT: checked it and he has their "Steel Gray" listed as RGB 51-63-72, hex color #333F48, which does have a greenish-blue tint to it.

Like Minnesota or Colorado, they wouldn’t have the city’s name regardless…

Hard to believe the Senators would go back to the old 2D logo, especially with the updated version lurking around somewhere.  Also means the Canucks are unlikely to be ditching the Vancouver script if they kept it on the logo.

Boston College's hockey team has had a couple nice gold alternates, although their shade is a bit flatter than what Vegas uses:

Yeah count me in as someone who doesn’t get the affinity for the old 2D Sens logo. It’s clunky and dated. I guess if they’re doing a throwback for a 3rd jersey (wow real original) it’s fine to re-use but they shouldn’t make it the primary logo.

Apparently we shouldn’t read too much into this since it’s a third-party manufacturer. Hence the wrong wordmarks and current Canucks logo
