NHL changes 2019-20

Recommended Posts

If you described this jersey to me, I'd tell you it sounded like a horror show. But damned if it doesn't work, and work well. It's unconventional without being ridiculous or (Rocky Mountain) XTREEEEEEME. Very interested in seeing the name/number treatment and the full uniform for this one.

It's a neat idea, but it's too abstract for it's own good and I think it's going to look bad on the ice.

Yeah... nah. Falling into the Canucks flying V territory right there. That mountain peak idea doesn't even make sense.

 

Btw what is this anyway?

I assume the Stadium Series jersey.

I really like this jersey.

 

Stadium Series jerseys so far have all been standard NHL jersey templates with added ugly elements, nothing special at all and not even worth thinking about past that one game. They could have used that template with the standard Avalanche logo and been like everyone else, but they decided to do more than that. This jersey is unique, striking, and and "out there" in a good way. I would like to see this as a full-time alternate.

I almost feel like the A needs to start lower on the jersey and end before it reaches the color. That little swatch of white on the collar, at the tip of the mountain, is driving me nuts.

In reality mountains aren't triangles, though (or pyramids or cones). Take Mt. Fuji, for example

I'm not suggesting it be a triangle. I don't care if its' cut off at the top or not. I just think interrupting the neckline with that little patch of white is weird. It's like it's a volcano and your face is the eruption.

But it doesn't look like that. It looks like they used the Adidas collar to make a really clever mountain design.

Sorry, I just disagree. My eye is drawn right to that weird little white space in the collar and not in a pleasant way. Feels forced.

Leak: Avs Unconvential Uniform for Stadium Series

November 13, 2019 - 16:09 PM

And now for something completely different… Late last night a photo began circulating ’round Twitter which showed a wild new jersey design for the Colorado Avalanche, later reports would peg this as the uniform the Avs would wear during the […]

I mean....it's kind of bold, I'll give them that.  The Avalanche have been due for a proper cleanup for awhile now, so maybe this is a beta test for marketing their next look?

Getting rid of the balancing triangle and just making it a white "A" with larger mountain peaks would have worked just fine, kinda like the Flames' A with flame. 

 

And, as the article states, I'm now incredibly curious as to what the Kings will wear. LA with palm trees?
