eh, the blue pants on the Avs just looks wrong. I know it makes more sense but it still doesn't mean it's correct. 

 

And to the contrary I was finally sold on them watching them in action last night.

The fact that noone on their opening night is wearing their reverse retro is peak NHL. They couldn’t market their way out of a wet paper bag

Since when have fourth jerseys ever been worn on Opening Night?

I’d rather have teams in all leagues wear regular home and roads for the opening game than alternates.

These are games that are likely to get the most attention all regular season. Why not use them to help market your newest looks? Especially when that was probably the highlight of the weird offseason

Because again, the league has never had fourth jerseys be used on opening nights even when they're revealed prior to the season starting. It's always been the normal road or home jerseys.

 

Opening with a look you don't plan to use often is dumb.

Home/season openers should always be primary v away. Always

 

And yes, this means grey v white in baseball as well. Because exactly. High profile games should be the ones you wear your proper looks.

I absolutely hate the extra white piping on Buffalo home jerseys... Way too noticeable even from a distance.

The jersey would have been absolutely perfect without it...  Talk about doing the most "Buffalo" thing they could do.

It's pretty crazy when you think about it. Bills go with navy uniforms back in the days but add random royal piping with a cluster:censored: navy/royal helmet, current Bills uniforms with totally unnecessary navy trims, Sabres finally switching back to blue in 2006 but go with navy and the buffaslug, ditch these for a more traditional set in 2010 but add stupid front piping, grey trims and front numbers... Now they finally go back to royal but can't help themselves adding stupid white trim on their homes. You can't make this stuff up.

Can't the Avs paint these helmets like the NFL does? Players rocking royal blue looks worse than black.

Dear Colorado. In a world where this is possible, anything is.

Both manufacturers are CCM in that picture.  CCM already matched the Avs blue in their helmets.

You're overreacting lol. Seriously comparing those gorgeous jerseys to the turds the Bills and Sabres were wearing in the late 2000s? Because of a couple white stripes that help the jersey feel more balanced?

I actually thought the Sabres looked great today. The white really stands out in a good way. It ties in nicely with the numbers. The Sabres new home sweater is actually lacking something around the shoulders. The top of the jersey feels a little bare. A yellow collar in any capacity would have filled the empty space, as would have a shoulder patch. I’d imagine the roads will look better because of the shoulder yoke.

I see the logo and look is now the Oilers' main image and profile photo on Twitter.

 

Again...why? These can't become their primaries, right?

 

The Oilers' Twitter account changes to that whenever the team wears the alternates.

 

And speaking of which, they wore them again tonight.

Honestly, who cares. They're going to get worn. I'd rather see teams honour their regular look at the beginning of the season instead of starting off with some gimmicky uniforms to kick things off. And yes, I'd say 75% of the RR uniforms are a gimmick and don't look as good as the regular uniforms that teams' have spent years refining and evolving into.

Yep, I just watched the highlights of this game and all I could think was that the white lines reminded me of those pointless grey lines that they had. I don't think they really offer anything that the yellow striping by itself already offers.

Simply pointing out the fact that Buffalo teams never seem to get it right/perfect since so long. Always at least a pointless detail for the sake of being "different".
