2020-2021 NHL Changes

Recommended Posts

I think that it would look better without the white shoulders, but other than that it's not bad.

It's too simple. It's a bit like the Canucks' stick and rink thing - people don't like it because it's just a bit too basic for a primary and I think this would be the same if not worse. Like I said, decent shoulder patch though (if not a bit uncreative) imo.

I dunno, you're entitled to your opinion but that looks great to me. Now swap the orange for copper or maybe add some silver trim and we're talking! ahah

Because you shouldn’t replace your current better crest for it.

I don't think the current logo is any good. Just an average 70s logo that looks very dated, especially with that weird Western/disco/70s psychedelic font

Multiple Stanley Cup wins with the greatest hockey player of all time, that's why. Same reason the Islanders have to stick with their fundamentally unsound mishmash of warped text, a hockey stick, and a poo-shaped landmass. 

I know, that's my whole point. Without Gretzky and those Cups, they would have changed that logo a long time ago. Nostalgia is one helluva drug lol. Also again, just my opinion but the Islanders logo while not great is a bit better and their jerseys are a million times better, I love the thick stripes. I think the Islanders have very underrated jerseys. The Oilers' mix of bright colors and use of way too many thin stripes just doesn't work imo

Side note, when did teams start having helmet brands in different colors?  I thought those were almost always white or black?

I think it was the Oilers. Last season when they introduced their third jerseys with no white on it, I think

When is the first game that will feature a Reverse Retro jersey ? I saw the earliest for Febuary 9th but i don't know if one will be sooner

Lightning released their alternate schedule.  Black alt remains a Saturday thing, and the RR comes in 3 times.

Could that black alt look more uninspired and blah? Don't think so

How would the current logos look on this jersey?

The Reverse Retro is light years ahead of that Black-Ice abomination.  Hopefully it replaces it.

Bad.

 

That's an issue a lot of concepts have had. A lot of folks may not agree with me. But I'd use the current crest on the RR, even if there's no black. They would look like the TBL again and distance themselves from the Maple Leafs, if the Reverse Retro became the primary. The front crest is up for debate.

 

Blue and black is a unique scheme that should return full-time.

Regardless of the helmet ads, I think this is easily the best the NHL has ever looked from top to bottom. I think only the Ducks/Oilers have sub par jerseys at this point.

As bad as the Oilers orange jersey and dark blue jerseys are, they look amazing compared to what is going on with the Ducks. Barely watchable.

I think this logo would work the best if the Lightning ever decided to correct course (ignore the rest of the concept)

Changing the white part of the oval to silver would be cool. Or the make the bolt silver and keep the oval white.

Caps have shown the full uniform;

Why are they so reluctant to put the WEagle on a jersey? It would make these fantastic.

Probably because they don't think it makes a good primary, if I had to guess. And honestly, these look so much cooler; they have an Original Six-styled feel to them, which is way more imaginative than just a generic "blue jersey with Weagle" concept, like so many third ideas I see floating around for the Caps.

 

They're obviously more into the creative ideas instead of the simple ones; this looks like a uniform and logo the Caps might have worn had they been established in the 40's or 50's, which is more creative a way to explore the branding then just making a blue jersey and slapping the secondary on it.

Ducks have to be the worst looking team in the NHL. I'd say the California teams and Caps would top the worst-dressed list.
