I loved that look too, but navy/orange is a happy middle ground i think.  

I think so too. It has a lot of things that work well in today’s aesthetic. The dark navy contrasted by the brighter orange works well. It might not age well, (especially the orange jersey) but the look mostly works for now.

Given that it’s a Fanatics jersey, I’m leaning towards it being merchandise and not on-ice. 

 

Fanatics makes NHL replica jerseys. 

 

Just because this isn't an adidas authentic doesn't mean it's not on-ice.

Adidas’ retail “authentics” aren’t even the proper on-ice jerseys.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS

  • 2019 THIRD JERSEY: Expected. The Predators will be back in the third jersey fray for 2019-20! They haven’t used one since redesigning their logo and uniforms in 2011. An obvious design choice would be navy blue, but as with the Panthers, I hope they do something a bit more interesting.

Predators would get a brand new third jersey this season.I think their third is navy, possible.

Honestly, I'd prefer navy to be their home and make the yellow jersey a third. Navy just looks better as the home jersey for Nashville.

I agree. Navy with gold accents. The logo can really pop against a darker backdrop like navy. And a gold trim could look nice. I think they sacrificed a nice look in order to force a new identity around the gold/yellow. Its garish to me and the predominantly white logo is lost against it.

The Preds going to navy at home would be like when the Flyers went with black as the primary jersey during the '00s. The yellow is completely unique, and it sets Nashville apart from the Sabres & Blues. Plus, the fact that the rebrand happened to coincide with the team ditching the "expansion" label & becoming a model franchise means the yellow isn't going anywhere.

I have to say that I'm surprised they would do a third in the same season that they'll also be doing a Winter Classic one.

I strongly disagree. I think the problem was that they leaned too heavily into the gold. their look with navy helmets and their '11-'17 home was significantly better than what they have now. They can keep the yellow/gold primary, they just need to be using more navy than they are to help tone the look down a little.

More importantly, the fans love it. I think 2015 is just about the best the team has ever looked. Nashville's gold helmets are a prime example that catering to your fanbase is sometimes a move that's questionable, from an outside perspective.

The yellow looks great but they really need to come up with a bolder striping configuration.

 

Absolutely. If they had just punched up the previous look, fixed the collar "fangs," and thrown the patch on both shoulders, It would look better than what they have now. Right now it feels like a hockey inspired pajama top.

Not only should the Perds keep the yellow jersey as the primary, they should bump the yellow helmets up to being the primary lids, too. That is such a unique look in the NHL, and I think it looks great. 

 

A navy alt (paired with a navy helmet) would be very nice, though.

boy, do I have good news for you.

 

After looking at it closer, I guess they already did that several years ago! Huh. I totally thought those were still just used as an alt.

Why? Makes sense to sell four product options rather than three.

For the Winter Classic I'm thinking they'll go with a new yellow jersey (maybe we'll see a colour v. colour matchup). I could see them paying homage to the old Nashville Dixie Flyers look:

They could also roll out a navy alternate to mix in during the season, or they could bring out the Winter Classic look for a few other games & save the navy jersey for next season.

Agreed. the '11-'17 home with navy helmets looked great.
