2020-2021 NHL Changes

Recommended Posts

Might the Coyotes wear their Kachina uniforms at home if they're still playing in April and May? I'm usually not at all a fan of alternates in the playoffs, but I wouldn't mind that one bit.

I dig the pattern on those Tucson sweaters and wouldn't mind seeing the Coyotes adopt that. Still, the color scheme absolutely needs to be streamlined down to brick, sand, and black. The 1996-2003 palette was too muddy, too much.

I think brick red, sand, purple and black would be fine, as well, honestly. Though I'd hazard that if the Coyotes go Kachina, they go full Kachina and not a modified version of it.

Wild are officialy awared for host of Winter Classic 2021. In broadcast (here in Poland) commentators said that according to one of Canadian radio station Jets might be their opponents.

Later they said that also Blues and Avalanche are in race for being a Wild rival.

I like the idea of updating the kachina with current color palette. I made a concept of it and it really like it. Even made it for NHL04

I think Tuscon Roadrunners nailed it very well. I wouldn't mind something similar for Coyotes:

Basically, the Coyotes need to do what the Brewers and Padres did.

The original Coyotes uniforms were never "good."

There are many fans of the kachina jerseys. The Coyotes have an oppurtunity to make a good one. Their current jerseys need a change too.

The original Kachina jerseys were pretty good, but also very 90's. They definitely need an update, and needs to have a brighter colors. The black and green doesn't work the best. The teal, black, sand, and red that the D-backs currently use would honestly be a good update.

I mean, you're right.

 

They were excellent. 😛

I was thinking stick with a brick red/redish orange as the main color, and use maybe a gold/sand secondary color and a purple/blue/indigo third color with black as just a trim color, kind of like the arizona flag or the 90s phoenix suns.

I like the work @B-mer did.  Rather than red and black, I wondered how it would look substituting orange and green (like their old third jerseys).cEs583l.png

Maybe the color balance isn't quite right, but IMO they should focus on their more unique colors rather than red and black.

The current Coyotes palette is so boring compared to the original.  And the howling Coyote hasn't aged well at all.

My problem with the Coyotes' originals wasn't the Kachina trim. It was having more colours than a rainbow and too many dark colours altogether. A brick red and sand as the main colors and another accent colour with the Kachina could give Arizona a highly respectable look. I would even favour the full-bodied prowling coyote with the circle backdrop as a primary crest.

I'm glad the Kachina throwback is just a third jersey now. I love the unique design and the creativity of it but I don't care for how the shoulder yol... (I'm kidding I know the difference!) 😛 yoke is dark green on a black jersey. I actually find their current home jersey is decent. I wonder what their current uniforms would look like if kachina striping was added to those.

I agree there are too many dark colours, and I'm particularly not a fan of the purple as well. It's just a bit much.

 

I do think there's a good way to make it work though, and keep the kachina pattern which is iconic. They just need a bit more contrast with their colour palette and get rid of the dumb moon shoulder patch (I might be in the minority there, but I really don't like it. Doesn't suit the katchina pattern, the old logo, their current logo or anything -- it just looks out of place).

How about maroon, sand, black as primary colors with hints of green/purple used in very small amounts? It's an idea I just thought about.
