2020-2021 NHL Changes

Recommended Posts

(totally agree that Vegas chrome buckets should be metallic - I actually think that would be cool with home, RR, and road) You know the other issue with Vegas?

Those two tone gloves are just awful.  I know many teams do that, but the "gold" khaki just looks awful next to the black and white on the palms.  Their look would be so much better with a solid color for the gloves

The gloves are the best part of their identity.

Agreed. They can really pull off the white gloves. Never thought I'd see that in the NHL, other than at the ASG. Which is why I was so underwhelmed when Seattle unveiled their uniform. Solid navy gear doesn't look bad by any means but it still feels like a missed opportunity to me

They’re so tacky, I love it.

 

I know, this feels like something you would have seen in the 70s

Seeing the Belleville Sens in action tonight reminded me that Ottawa definitely should have went with the faux barber pole look minus the letter logo... Slap the updated 2D centurion on Belleville set and you'd have winner right there.

Same old illegible numbers problem, though

I'm trying to think, besides LA stadium series has there been a helmet worn before that doesn't match the jersey or pants?

 

actually I guess Vegas did it the game before with grey helmet, red jersey, black pants so any team besides vegas?

 

Boston started out wearing their Pooh bear alternates with white helmets before quickly realizing that was a big mistake and switched to wearing them with the black helmets.

In 2003-04, 7 teams wore vintage jerseys.  Some teams went all out making sure everything was correct from helmet to the pants like the Canucks.  Then, there were the Kings, who, at least, made sure to have matching socks.

The numbers aren't ideal but still not that bad... As much as I usually like throwbacks, the original set Ottawa went with aren't that good especially the modified white jersey that looks really cheap without the black cuffs.

Here's how the Ottawa 67s do it.

Those Bellingham and ‘67s sweaters look better than anything the Ottawa team has worn. Get rid of Roman, return to Silver Seven.

The numbers would be much easier to read if they were the same color as the jersey. The white numbers on the red set look especially hard to read from a distance

Slightly better because the white numbers are mostly on black or red stripes

The Blues look just as lazy with their mismatching navy blue gear

huh...I guess I'm in the minority here.  I was curious what their gloves would look like without the contrasting cuffs and fingers:

IMO a solid-colored glove (be it gold, white, or black) would be an improvement.

I know that the Coyotes are going full on Kachina soon, but if they actually come up with a new design, that colour combo from their retros isn't too bad looking.  Certainly not as dark as the old/new primary.

Men those Coyotes jerseys are horrible. But the Panthers look amazing on the ice however

 

The Panthers' sweaters looked nice and the team did an appropriate homage to the era they represent as well, by getting absolutely blown out tonight.

 

(The Coyotes original alternate that the retros are based on look better, but I'm not really going to complain. I'm Team Kachina and everything that comes with it. The Coyotes came into existence in the '90s and they should look like it. Desert landscape, native imagery, the purple moon at center ice...bring back everything except the horrifically obstructed arena seating.)

#2 with blue pants with the homes and burgundy pants with the roads is perfect
