2020-2021 NHL Changes

I don’t like the slate blue equipment. I just feel that slate blue is not a right colour for Avalanche’s equipment. 

Navy is a much better choice. The equipment should be navy.

 

 

 What a blown opportunity.

Navy only appears on their third jersey, though, and they already have navy equipment for those jerseys so it can't be excused as a matching thing. Unless they replaced all of the uses of slate with navy (which good luck there), then slate was the better call.

 

I'd be alright with burgundy for the road, but the home should be slate equipment because it blocks better than black or navy would with the rest of the uniform.

After two games the Avs look right in blue.  Just fits perfectly.  
 

Seeing black helmets with the bright burgundy and blue looks jarring now.

I'm kinda worried about the white set. I hope the numbers are blue. It looks horrible in NHL 21

I understand that concern but I personally think it’s gonna work even better than the homes.  The away set now has NO blue so the Avs looked like a burgundy and black team.  This change brings them back to a burgundy and blue team. 
 

I do hope they changed the numbers to blue but even if they didn’t I still think it’s gonna be a welcome change.

Avs are the best they've ever looked. The only thing really bugging about the new look is the logo on the pants. It's the same as the one on the front of the sweater and seems oddly large. That's the perfect spot for an alternate logo. C, foot, whatever. Even no logo would be preferable. Something about doubling them up like that looks redundant.

I was very anti-change to the Avs uniforms.

 

Suprisingly, after 2 full games I'm already used to all the blue equipment. 

 

For those of you concerned about the lack of blue on the road uniforms, remember that the socks have always had the blue stripe. As long as the helmet stays white, theyll look fine IMO. I'm personally hoping for the RR Burgundy gloves, but I think thats a pipe dream. We'll find out Tuesday!

Plus it's not like either uniform was heavy on the black before. If anything the equipment change is more matching.

I had to watch parts of both Avs games to try and get used to it.  There are minor things I don’t like, the white cuffs on the gloves mainly. Anxious to see how the road set looks. Hope they did at least change the black numbers to blue but feel like they won’t until the next season or two.

Fully prepared to be blasted into the sun for this, but I wish Calgary had kept some black trim in their uniform. I get the whole nostalgia factor behind the retros. There were many valid criticisms of the previous uniforms, but I felt like black worked as a secondary/third color for them, and wasn't just BFBS.

 

I don't mind the home jerseys. They're not my favorite but there's nothing bad about them. The away jerseys actually bother me. I can't get past the waist striping on the away jerseys being different from the home. I feel like doing red/yellow/red would look good, but I admit I haven't seen it in a concept yet

 

The Rangers & Blackhawks use different striping at home compared to on the road, and no one seems to have an issue with it.

Does anyone know if Hockey Authentic is legit? I'm looking for a Quinm Hughes sweater and they have a nice selection. NHL Shop, Fanatics, etc selections are few and far between.

Oof, those gold jerseys don't look that hot on the ice for Vegas;

Definitely comes off more mustardy than anything.

It's the helmet. If the helmet shows glossy, it's fine. If the helmet shows matte, it's bad.

Helmet ads are like NBA jersey ads: on screen for 2 seconds at a time.

Personally still think they should've gone with the white-striped version of this design, personally, but pretty much anything would've been an improvement over that Reebok holdover disasterpiece they had.

favorably comparing the helmet sponsors to the most intrusive uniform advertisements in the Big 4 sports is an interesting take

It wasn't favorable. It's silly to have ads that are barely seen.

Seeing Fleury in his gold helmet and pads, Vegas should have gone all in with the gold for the alternates.  Shiney gold helmet and all gold gloves.

On TV, the Vegas jersey is definitely dull, also I think the arena’s lights are dimmer so the sparkle isn’t really there, but in person, the jersey looks great and actually sparkles, definitely how they wanted it to look. Now if they only went all in with the helmet and gloves...
