2020-2021 NHL Changes

This jersey really shows how Vegas employs a remarkably odd mix of colors. There's a reason why red is used as an accent color on their normal sets.

 

When the gold jerseys were released the two most common complaints I saw online were "it should have been red, not gold", and "the star logo should be on the front". This jersey solves both of these issues, so I'm sure fans who hate the gold jerseys will eat this up.

 

Personally I give them credit for being the 123rd Big 4 franchise and being able to come up with an original colour scheme, and being able to make it work for the most part.

1976 teal Seals sweaters with a "ʃ harks" script!

Again with the what-ifs, but it would have been cool if the Sharks and the North Stars had been able to sustain a rivalry based on the de-merge.

 

I willed it into being.

I really hope the NHL doesn't become the NBA where every team has 9 jerseys that look wildly different from one another.

I think all this pretty much confirms that Mackinnon’s gloves are to be worn with a Nordiques-inspired Avalanche throwback. Maybe with Bigfoot feet in place of the fleur-de-lys?

Any info on if the Coyotes are part of the 4th jersey program?

It looks like every team is getting a 4th jersey, so yes.

I mean, like I said before, this is a fourth jersey, using team colors, that references a throwback look the team has had. It's a little out-there, sure, but it's not nearly as bad as the NBA, where City jerseys use random colors and designs.

Do the Jackets bring back the original jersey, the Columbus Chill or go back to the Barons?

For the most part, I agree with this. I think Vegas has a unique look, which is hard to do. But using red in anything but small doses turns it into something else. That shade, alongside dark gray and gold, is simply not appealing to the eye. 

 

FWIW, the gold jerseys are also horrendous. With that color scheme, I can only see using white, gray or black as the base color. 

 

As far as logos, I love the star logo and think it works fine as the crest of an alternate jersey. Just not a red jersey.

This is, um....unfortunate naming.

For whatever it's worth, don't get your hopes up about the Sharks' new 4th jersey just yet:

I have a connection with the Preds' office. The guy is known for only batting about .500 on things like this (so in the "take it with a grain of salt" category). He said that Nashville is going with a navy heavy alternate, pulling heavily from the 09-11 alt. If true, I'm interested.

I'm hearing other rumors that it's going to be a home riff on their WC jersey, which I have a feeling is probably the more likely outcome.

Weren't the Preds trying for a navy alt last season, too, but scuttled it to keep focus on the WC jersey? Wouldn't surprise me if they're going to lean there for the inversion gimmick.

Seems like the home riff on the WC might be a regular alternate (3rd)?

I'm just scared to see what Carolina come up with.

Rumour is a gray version of a Whalers jersey

That was the word I was hearing. They could be trying to go that way with this incentive. It might be the option most likely to garner the most revenue, being a completely different thing from the WC one. On the other hand the WC jersey was really popular within the fanbase, so who knows?
