Aesthetically, it's not their strongest jersey design and it appears to be at the bottom of the team's list of favorites.


Aesthetically it's the one of the strongest designs come out of their tenure in Dallas, second only to the current home and roads.  More importantly, It looks like a jersey designed for a professional hockey team.  The current alternate looks like an All Star jersey at best and a black-ice, fashion jersey at worst.

 

If you took that original black jersey, updated the green to the "victory" shade and included some sort of tribute to the cup win as a shoulder patch or hanger effect, you'd have a significantly better alternate look than anything they've attempted since the 2013 update.  It would pay tribute to the championship and nicely compliment their traditional uniform set.

Look at the way the victory green on the socks really catches the eye over the dark forest-y green color of the actual jersey.

 

The original jersey used kelly green that was perfectly visible.  No one is arguing for a return of the 1994-95 to 1998-98 set.

Why is this so hard?

I personally hate this design for a lot of reasons. The stripes being abruptly cut off for the sake of TV numbers is so awkward and unnecessary, and it's a decision that leaves the sleeve stripes hidden from what would be their most visual place on the uniform. The color balance is all over the place with white, forest green, and gold all fighting in a power struggle for the secondary color. Perhaps most importantly, the logos are the worst in Stars' franchise history and are so disjointed from one another in color. It's a mess, and as displayed by the on-ice picture posted previously, it just looks drab in reality.

 

I'm not a huge fan of neon colors, but at least that uniform is cohesive and clearly has thought put into it. This thing looks like a Frankenstein's monster of arbitrary design choices that don't even compliment each other well.

Chef's kiss. Who cares if the green doesn't pop. Why does everything need to pop? It looks cool. The logo looks great on black.

 Because the green isn’t visible against the black otherwise.

 

Yeah. That's what I meant.

 

Like the TBL had a alternate with only a few blue accents around the collar, the royal blue stood out strongly against the black. The green turns almost invisible on that black jersey. I just thought brighter green is better.

 

Updating the colors of the Stars 90s alt would make the jersey better.

Does anyone know what the patch the Leafs wore last night was for? It stood out a little too much, considering it was the only white element on their sweaters.

A memorial patch for George Armstrong, who just recently passed;

Ah, so help me understand what they ARE designated as by the teams...

It depends, Retro, vintage, heritage, anniversary, throwback...whatever.  There’s no official designation for a jersey that’s only worn one time as opposed to a jersey that’s worn four times.  If a team introduces a Third Jersey, then that language will be used, ie: the Caps or Dallas this year.

That's a beautiful patch. I prefer that to just a white number in a black circle

The Wild need to switch to the North Stars colors ASAP

 

These RR uniforms are beautiful

Yeah, holy :censored: the Wild's RR jerseys are puh-re-tty. I still think they'd have done well to go with the black-included style, but damn if this isn't very very nice-looking.

100% agreed!

 

I like Minnesota’s normal uniforms

and colors but these are just spectacular.

If Minnesota can't have the name back, at least let them have the colors back. Then who knows? The Wild's mediocrity-to-terribleness might prompt a true rebrand to at last dump the name.

Numbers really should be green on the Wild RRs (for contrast/legibility purposes, not "historical" accuracy), but the Wild head on the North Star template works.

The Wild head in North Stars colors looks terrible in digital formats, but it looks absolutely incredible on the ice. This uniforms works, and I'm all behind them making this the permanent colors

Gotcha. Essentially, I wanted to know if we were stuck with designs that clearly are being deemphasized by teams (Phx. red uni and Calgary black C) for 3 more years simply because they were slid into an "alt" slot.

Yup, that does look pretty good. That logo just works in green and yellow. Just not sure about the yellow numbers, like everyspacer.pngone else

The caption on the photo I just posted was "Dress Fresh" on the Wild's twitter page. They're owning it at least lmao

My ONLY complaint is that the river should be white.
