I came to a similar conclusion once their alternate uniform came out; pairing it down to burgundy, navy, and white is my favorite path. There’s something so fresh, crisp, and cold about this color scheme, and I totally think it would translate well to the home/road and logos. It evokes the concept of high altitude and snow much better than the medium blue and silver, in my opinion.

Maybe it's me, but those colors look muddy when paired together.

Not sure if this is in agreement or sarcasm, but I personally loved that uniform.  

 

Add a hem strip and take away the black 'pit stains' and I would easily add this to my collection of Av's jerseys (FWIW that jersey was nicknames the 'blueberries' by Avs fans).

it was so much better than the unipron look.

Every diagonal text jersey that isn't the Rangers just looks so ineffective to me. I don't know if it's because of the number of letters and the size that they end up being scaled to, or if it's just because I identify that look with the Rangers and any team who tries to mimic it just automatically appears inferior by comparison. Either way I don't like them.

If it comes down to diagonal-text Avs alternates, I still prefer this one.

Random: But every Av in this photo except Skoula is in the Hall of Fame😮

Okay...I'm really annoyed that I never noticed the sleeve stripes don't match the hem and socks. I'm never gonna be able to unsee this now.

I believe I've mentioned it on the boards once or twice before, but a real improvement the switch to EDGE brought was the tailoring of the jerseys.

 

Pre-EDGE jerseys were so baggy. The arm stripe is almost in the gloves, the shoulder patch is on the upper arm, Skoula is almost drowning in the shoulders of his jersey.

Well the biggest change in that was actually the style. Baggy fitting stuff was super in back then. 
 

I remember reading an article somewhere, about an NHLer, I can’t remember who, who said they loved to copy Mike Modano with his super baggy jerseys, because they thought he just looked so cool in it. They also said that apparently Mike Modano convinced the equipment staff in Dallas,  during one of his first seasons there to let him have a larger size jersey. They finally did, and that’s another reason the baggier jerseys really caught on in the NHL. I have no clue how true that is, and I’m not sure where to find a source, but I definitely think of that story when I think of the large jerseys of that era.
