I love the idea of a black home jersey for the Lighting, and I like the idea of silver as their “light” color, but I neeeeed some blue.

Plus, the silver looks mostly dull aside from the picture at the top of the article. A team with called Lightning should have something resembling lightning somewhere.

I really wish the Lightning would use bright yellow. Pair it with black or blue, I don't care. But play up the bold lightning color idea. The ASG stuff was close, start with that.

Some blue and white stripes would go a long way.  Then the new, Adidas embellishments become cool little extras instead of the focal point of the design.

Now they really look like skating billboards for Electric brand sunglasses.

Whatever the Canucks do, I REALLY hope they don't revert to the old "Stick in Rink" logo as the primary. I know a lot of people love it, but I'll absolutely never understand why. It's one of my least favorite logos of all time and it's hard to find a logo that's lamer in execution than that one IMO. It's a stick over a "rink" that makes a C, but every single part of that explanation feels like a huge stretch. And it just comes across as such a dated product of 1970s fashion that it might as well be a canary yellow refrigerator with orange linoleum. I'd tolerate it as a shoulder logo, if they absolutely insisted, but it's a miserably weak primary logo. Especially when they have that Johnny Canuck logo, which is one of my absolute favorite logos of all time.

 

There was a time when I agreed, and part of me still does, however I think it would work. I love its history and simplicity. You can still utilise a logo family with it but I think it would clean up so much visual clutter that the Canucks are burdened by these days. It would be a breath of fresh air to me.

So is it confirmed that the Canucks are celebrating their 50th anniversary next season? I hope the Sabres have the sense to wait until their actual anniversary season.

My good buddies got a sneak peak of the Wild 3rd concepts in October-  as him and another friend are split super good season tickets and they had a little focus group.

 

Im going to transcript his texts. I haven't seen or heard anything so take it with a grain of salt:

 

"Got to go see a couple of the Wilds concept jerseys for next year.  Black. With the Minnesota Script from the green jersey"

 

"The captain c was in the state of MN patch."

 

"Black embroidered star on the middle of the arm, but same color as the black sleeve so not too prominent "

 

"black gold and green. Black and a muted gold on the script."

 

I'd. shocked if these actually got picked, they were just a little focus group, and they probably have 25 different options and only showed them a few of them.

A black jersey for the Wild would be awful... But everything else sounds intriguing for the Wild...

Black is not a part of the Wild's color scheme, if they were to add black it would be a major mistake. I think the Wild have had a pretty good uniform history overall, but a black jersey would completely ruin that IMO.

 

I am intrigued about the MN state with the captain C and the script coming back though, just not on black.

The Wild do more fan research than probably any other team in the league, so rest assured that whatever they choose to do in the future, they will have done their due diligence to make sure their core fans are excited about it.

It shows.  Their home and roads have never looked better in spite of not matching.  I just hope they aren't thinking of going the black-for-black's-sake route when they have the opportunity to make a vastly improved version of the Iron-Range Reds.

I was hoping for Kelly Green and yellow (no black), merging the two eras of Minnesota hockey.

So we've got the San Jose "stealth" Sharks jerseys, Those awful heathered Carolina thirds. The Lightning thirds with the spray painted grey sleeves, the All Star jerseys, and now this new info about a potential Wild alternate. 

 

I am noticing a pattern and I am not liking it.

Black, gold and green sounds suspiciously similar to the pre-relocation North Stars.

My hope is that the Lightning, especially if they don't win a Cup this year, get rid of the whole "Maple Wings" look now that Stevie Y is gone, and go back to something closer to their traditional look incorporating the black and blue together in a decent way and not the extremes of their current home, road,and thirds.

It was a shame to replace the N*, because those were just about perfect, but I really liked those pre-location jerseys too. I still think that the best set the Dallas Stars have ever had were their first season's set.

I'm noticing a pattern too.  A pattern that has Adidas spending more time on trendy embellishments than the actual design of their jerseys.  How much better would the "stealth" stealth jerseys look if they'd taken contrast into consideration, how improved would the Hurricanes alternate look if "storm grey" wasn't confined to the yoke and how much better would Tampa's alternate look with some blue and white striping.  Make solid design first, then worry about the embellishments.

So you want a stealth look but with contrast? Kinda defeats the purpose.

 

As always it seems some folks are forgetting that the TEAM has final say and also has HUGE say in the direction of the jersey design as well.

I remember there was mock up or an actual jersey with the Wild logo in green, yellow, and black from a couple years ago during the time Minnesota were to host the stadium series game.  It looked pretty sharp.  Trying to find it, but no luck.  I would take that over any Minnesota script logo or a black jersey. 

 

Adding a minimal amount of black as trim to a mostly green or red jersey wouldn't be too bad.

 

I do agree that as much as I hate that Minnesota's jerseys haven't matched in a while, they have all looked pretty damn good.

 

Not the actual one I remembered, but this gives an idea of what I'm talking about.
