Tried concepting that up, and it's...

Well, the victory green would blend a lot more with the black at a distance; they'd be a broadcaster's nightmare. I think that's exactly why they went for a much brighter shade of green; at a distance and blurred, like jerseys often are seen during broadcast, the actual green parts would look basically invisible and make the job of the commentators way harder than necessary. The Sharks' "stealth" jerseys suffer from that very issue; the teal doesn't show up well on broadcast because it's a dark shade on a dark shade.

 

The victory green seems too dark to work with the idea the team obviously wanted to go for; we may not like it, but the team does. It's obvious they wanted to incorporate the neon lights that the Bank of America Plaza is known for into the jersey in some form, which is clearly the reason for the skyline teaser; and neon green works better for legibility than dark green on black without a good amount of white for contrast.

Thats why you'd add white/silver. Like the stars in the sky.

They really  should have tried to make those glow in the dark.

Why? Where would a glow in the dark jersey be used to its full potential? In someone's room with the lights out?

Designing a jersey worn in-game to be at it's best before the game is kinda backwards.

I never understood the love for this set. The black jersey with a dark green accent always made it kind of empty

 

I think they were designed to be demoralizing, to make Minnesotans feel like the team was devoid of spirit and had one foot out the door (the other one in the gutter).Then they kept it in Dallas anyway.

By design; they were made during the time Norm Green was trying to get them out of Minnesota by every possible avenue due to all the controversy coming down on him. Going from the gorgeous but painfully short-lived Cup Finals set to a dull, boring set with all ties to the "North" part of their name removed was basically Norm making an "all location-applicable" jersey set for wherever he finally landed the team. He tried Anaheim and was cockblocked by Disney. Then he got Dallas while still leading Minnesota along that there was ever even a chance the team could stay, pulling the wool over even the league's eyes until it was too late for them to stop anything.

 

There's a reason Minnesota fans who were around at that time so venomously, vehemently detest Norm. He was a sleazeball, through and through, and had the North Stars fallen under anybody else, they probably stay in Minnesota.

The Sharks will be too slow to keep up with the Stars until they remove those orange strips from the sleeves.

Not quite, they have to remove the entire striping to maximize their speed stat. 😜

There’s probably too much light in that photo for it to really work, tbh.

Dallas' best look and clever too:

Is it, though? They just took an All-Star jersey and had it sewn it up in their colors with their logo on it. Many people love to throw around the “lazy” or “unoriginal” hot take, but this jersey somehow gets a pass from a lot of people.

You know what, this new Stars jersey could have even gone more garish. Imagine if they swapped the black and green!

 

At least they didn't go full on color rush.

Maybe the Stars use this new bevel effect for the numbers of their regular home and road jerseys.

 

No Light Bright dots, no neon green, just the basic shape to add some of this design to their plain white numbers. The bevel matches their primary logo.

Looks like the Rangers just leaked that not only will they (and most other, if not all, teams) release a Reverse Retro jersey, but a FOURTH jersey as well for the so-called "Power 31 Collection". Any ideas what you think this new series is going to look like?

It might has sense except that Reverse Retro is gonna be a 3rd jersey for Rangers not 4th.

Im not a fan of the lazer green Stars jersey. To me it looks gimmicky and quite tacky. In the publicity photos they can make it look as 'cool' as possible, but IRL it won't look that eye catching. It'll just be a dark, bland looking Dallas jersey, a bit like San Jose's is. (maybe the green will pop a bit more than San Jose, sure I'll concede that. But still.)

 

Also I don't like the Dallas pants logo on the front of a jersey. It's a weird, imbalanced design that looks fine as a supporting mark but not as a main logo. It's just like Carolina sticking a vertical flag pole mess on the front of their black jerseys. Ugly.

I don't understand why either. It is very drab to me. The star made it better, but in most pictures, it looks like a black and gold sweater. I liked the initial Dallas sweater more. Maybe it is my nostalgia goggles that I am wearing but I just think it worked better.

I think it's the fact that it was a unique look that was fitting for a team called the Stars
