NHL Prediction Thread (Florida third)

Recommended Posts

Edit......decided to continue this thread as a space for predictions for the upcoming NHL season (and beyond) to not clutter up the forum with another new topic

 

With a few different alternate jerseys being leaked over the weekend, maybe we'll get a glimpse of what the Winter Classic jerseys will look like sooner rather than later. Thought I'd take a stab at predicting what we'll see on New Years Day...

Dallas' is based off of a few of the Texans' variations in uniform style, and Nashville's is a fauxback paying homage to the Flying Dixies of the EHL. C&C appreciated, enjoy!

Both are fantastic. 

 

Thanks! Here's to hoping the NHL/Adidas get this year's game right with two teams that don't necessarily have that classic look

Yes.  Both of your designs are very logical and practical choices, clean and well done. Only potential changes I could see is getting some white in the Preds uniform, even if it’s as little as making the script logo white. 

 

The more I look at Dallas the more I love it. Great shade of green, classic elements with simple, barely mismatched striping, pants stripes. If I were to make a fantasy league, which I’ve wanted to for some time, that’s a great starting point for a team. Also kind of reminds me of my high schools old sets so there’s that too.

The Dallas concept is super crisp. I would love to see these hit the ice. 

 

Nashville is clean as well and it's a nice looking sweater but it almost seems too conservative. Honestly, I think using the Tennessee flag inspired 3-star roundel as the main crest would look nice (keeping the stripe, of course).

I would be thrilled if the Preds went this way! I agree that it could use a little white. Maybe the script, the letter on the Captain's patch, and the stars, on the shoulder logo? Fantastic work!

I don’t think Nashville needs white. Then it’d be a straight copy of the Dixie Flyers, whereas here it’s just Dixie Flyers inspired and very Smashville.

Decided to continue with this thread by posting some predictions for the upcoming year and beyond. Let's start with the Sabres since we know that they will be bringing back royal blue full-time again.

Totally forgot that Carolina is debuting their new road uni tomorrow, so here is my prediction based off of the teaser video they posted!

Same gloves/pants/helmet treatment as before, now the collar treatment is consistent with the homes. Seems like they're looking to simplify the home.

I'd buy those Sabres jerseys and wear them every day if I could...and I'm not a Sabres fan. Just great looks/great updates here.  Maybe add that fauxback "Buffalo" wordmark as the hanger effect.

Let's move on to the Heritage Class...

Heritage Classic in Saskatchewan

EXPECTED The Jets will face the Calgary Flames at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan on Oct. 26. A blue version of their Heritage jersey is reportedly in the works for this game. SOURCE
 

EXPECTED Calgary will face Winnipeg at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Sask. on Oct. 26. Teams generally wear throwbacks for this event. A white one is in the works.

I want to respond with a certain gif from Archer, just don’t know if it’s appropriate. Awesome work. I’d be shocked if it’s not this.

Let's move on to Vegas...

 

From Icethetics:

Gold third jersey headed to Vegas?

CONFIRMED The Golden Knights are not the kind of team to waste time. They went to the Stanley Cup Final in their first season and, in their third, they’ll add a third jersey!

DETAILS In an interview with The Sin Bin, team owner Bill Foley was asked about the progress of the third jersey. He said: “We’re trying to get the color right. A particular color … I’m not going to confirm ‘gold,’ but a particular color that is bright, that people can wear to a game and they’ll stand out. Right now, the steel grey, and it’s a beautiful jersey, but it doesn’t stand out. The white stands out and this new jersey will stand out.” SOURCE

On to Ottawa...

 

From Icethetics:

New third jersey in the pipeline

EXPECTED Because the Adidas catalog lists the Senators with other teams getting new thirds in 2019-20, I don’t think we’ll see the red NHL100 Classic jersey again. It’s more likely they get something new.

 

 

More like something borrowed. I can't see Ottawa unveiling a completely new design considering they are planning to overhaul their identity within the next two years. I'm betting that they just bring back their previous heritage jersey and adapt it to the Adizero template.

There is the possibility they come out with an alternate that is a test run for the next set. They did it with the pre-edge swooshy red alternate that became the home. 

 

This still looks good. They should move to pure white like they have in the AHL team.

The Vegas jersey is pretty great and I could see that happening. The only thing I don’t like is the crest. Their secondary logo is a little weak. Maybe increase the size a little.

On to Florida...

 

From Icethetics:

 

Quote

New alternate arriving soon

EXPECTED Three years since their rebrand, the Panthers will be adding a new third jersey! The most obvious choice, in my mind, would be a navy blue design with the modernized leaping cat front and center. But I wonder if the Cats will surprise us.

 

 

It makes too much sense for Florida to finally embrace their underutilized updated leaping cat logo. It's a great mark. With the addition of the stick/palm tree/sun logo to the helmets this season, I'm thinking that they are going to modernize their old navy thirds.

Looks awesome, but I think i'd like it better with the triangular yoke like the original jersey it's based on.  Also no laces to differentiate it from the home/away, though i'm sure they'd probably have them to keep that theme going.
