NHL changes 2019-20

Every diagonal wordmark hockey jersey that isn't the New York Rangers would serve the planet better by being thrown into a garbage can and set on fire.

At least in those pictures on the hem the black bleeds into the darker red making it look thicker and throws the balance off with the other black stripes. I’m surprised they’re that thin but whatever. 

 

I like how they brought back the red numbers. 

 

Calling it an abomination is a bit much. It’s not the worst, could have been better for sure. It’s still a clean traditional hockey jersey.

Um, yeah, not a fan. @Cosmic said it best in that it FEELS like an alt. jersey. Nicknames of team nicknames should be reserved for alt jerseys. It also feels a bit too red dominant for my liking.

I like the color balance, for lack of a better way to describe it. The striping makes it instantly recognizable as the Hurricanes. The recolor of the logo for the helmet decal is pretty slick. I don’t like the nickname ‘Canes’ being the script. 

 

It looks clean and is a fairly restrained design without being dull and is an upgrade over what it’s replacing. Good change, if I were still in my jersey collecting heyday I’d pick one up. 

 

On a second look, I really like how there’s no shoulder yoke or yoke outline. The logo there really pops being on a white field.

I like it. Showing off the "C" in the newish Canes mark is a good idea. The "C" makes for a nice alternate logo, works for both Carolina and Canes, and would look good on hats.

For me, it feels like a bootleg. I don't get why anybody would like this.

Honestly wouldn’t be so bad if they just made the “C” as the crest. It would kinda read as Carolina hurricanes having the flags inside the letter too.

Now THAT, is trash. 

 

The most frustrating thing is that it's actually a nice jersey that's a HUGE improvement over their old road jersey. But then they had to completely ruin it by adding the wordmark making themselves look like the Redneck Rangers. 

 

REDNECK RANGERS!!!!!!

 

I'm never not calling them that.

We already have a redneck Rangers, they just play sports outdoors (for now). Texas ruined this joke the way they ruin everything.

Aaron Dell's new pads.  I'm surprised customizing pads like this haven't really caught on considering Kelly Hrudey did this way back in 96-98.  Not totally sure what year that picture is from.

Probably too expensive when you could be traded at any time. Also most goalies go with white dominant pads because they believe players have a harder timer swing them.

In a vacuum, these look fine. But the abbreviated name is so minor-league.

Redneck Rangers. Spread it like a California wildfire.

I still don’t understand why the flag pattern is only on the waist. It’d be such a major improvement on both the home and away if it were on the arms too.

would have been interesting to see what it would have looked like with Hurricanes across the front instead of Canes.  I think more letters looks better for the diagonal word shtick

 

They still would have looked like bootleg Rangers.

That C won’t be visible to anyone without their face a foot away from it.

 

and I agree with @Red Wolf this legit looks like a knockoff bootleg

 

This isn't 1989. It's 2019. Everything is in HD, 4K. Arenas have huge replay boards. The "C" will be visible.

I really think the only bad thing about these is the lack of a logo. They’re certainly not good, but they’re not bad, either.

Has anyone actually looked at the Rangers white jersey recently? The Canes pull theirs off way better than that mess going on at the top of New York's jersey.
