Flames announcement at 9am MST tomorrow to see what they will wear next year

Everyone’s expecting the retro red and yellow version that they have busted out as alternates, but I’ve got a horrible-nothing to back it up-hunch saying black flaming horse face throwback makes an ugly reappearance

Oi, you put some respect on Blasty, boy. Next to the retros, that 2004 set is by far the most popular Flames set among the fanbase, and I honestly wouldn't even be surprised if Blasty's a full-time secondary again considering all the recent Blasty merch that's shown up.

 

A large amount of Flames fans love Blasty. I think it coming back as either a third or a secondary logo is practically inevitable.

I guess you could put my take down in Unpopular Opinions then😄

Unfortunately, I'll be shocked if it's not full-time throwbacks. IMO, the Flames look way better with black in the color scheme. 2003-2007 was pretty close to the ideal look for them.

 

Weirdly, I love the Chiefs' uniforms, the classic Rockets and Hawks look, etc. But I've never liked pure red/gold/white on the Flames.

Black on the Flames is like red added to the Bruins' and Penguins' uniforms. The only black, yellow-gold and red uniform that's acceptable are the Canucks' Skate uniforms.

Red, yellow-gold and and white look great on a hockey team and what team other than the Flames?

I really wanted Calgary to fix their current black look, and go back to the 2004 style. That being said, these are still great jerseys. I think they have the perfect opportunity to bring back the 2004 look as an alternate now though.


Edit: I see they will be using their current homes as an alternate? That's.....not exactly what I meant. That's just lazy.

Dear Ottawa Senators: This is how you do a cool and fun jersey unveiling. Take notes.

I expect it to just be a one-year deal. Popowich has been teasing Blasty's return being ramped up for years, Blasty's being used on merchandise again and the fanbase absolutely adores it.

 

I'd be stunned if we didn't soon see Blasty make a comeback on an actual jersey.

Oh man, that black C stands out like a sore thumb... make it go away.

 

I hate it when teams get so, so close to a perfect set and then... well, this happens.

Blasty merchandise is pretty minimal on the team's store (flamesport.com)

I'd assume it helps them clear out their stock of the black C jerseys without having to discount them. It's like when Edmonton went full time retro but kept the initial Edge monstrosities around as an alternate for a year.

Regardless of if you think the Flames need black in their scheme or not, I hope we're all in agreement that this is still a big improvement over the current uniforms.

The alternate black C is stupid, but the Flames will finally look like the Flames again.  It's about damned time.

I still prefer the black outline on the red 'C', but after all these years I still would have prefered that "alternate" to have a white 'C' instead of a black 'C' (and do away with the flags)

I mean, these jerseys are just incredible;

The retros are nice, but these are my definitive Flames jerseys.

Man, even when the Flames get it they don't fully get it.

I'd expect this to be a one-off and then we get either A.) Blasty or B.) the 2004 red as a third jersey. Popowich has been hinting at Blasty getting increased prominence in the brand for a while.

 

That's too prominent an era for the Flames to ignore completely.
