Nhl jerseys to get rid of

Recommended Posts

I agree... the Nashville & Dallas alts are ugly.

I, however, will defend Atlanta's alt to the death... or near-death... maybe just a slight maiming.

I like Atlanta's alts as well.

The Preds..... i don't even consider them real uniforms.. i don't recognize them, like the US didn't recognize China until the 70's...

I always thought that if you reversed the navy blue and mustard on the Preds alternates, they would look pretty sweet.  Next time one of you is tinkering with the Nashville Alternate in one of your concepts, just reverse those two colors and see what a difference it makes, JMO.

Yeah, but the problem is the Pred's alt logo is horrible, as well. For such a cool main logo, their alt is horrendous.

You put the Flames Alt ahead of their home uni?

I'd put the flaming snot jersey in last place--a definite "F"

The horse head's not a bad logo, I haven't figured out the hate for it.

Truth be told, the red jerseys have the potential to be great... were they not so black.  The trim, fine, but the numbers and the crest?  Horrendous looking in black on that jersey.

The Flames new red jersey and the Dallas alternates don't have to go, but they need some fixing. The Flames jersey, if the stripes were more even with their other jerseys and the C was white instead of black, then it'd be a touchdown. Their black jersey with the flaming horse head should probably be done away with though.

I agree that with a white/black/gold Flaming C and some consistency between each version's striping (home, away, alt)that the Flames' home jersey would be perfect.  But, all things considered, the jersey is still really awesome (especially the Pro version with full gear).

I love that they went back to red--that flaming snot horse is awful--unfortunately it's still around as the third (which it originally was). I do agree that the "C" should not be black--(Should be yellow or white)--ditto for the numbers--the outlines were widened--but still tricky to read.

Um, there was no change whatsoever to the numbers on the Flames' red home jersey since it was introduced.  The only change was to the names which switched from black with a white outline to black with a white outline.

I posted this a while back as an alternative idea to how the flames should have done thier red jersey, but it got a rather lukewarm reaction.

Calgary Flames home jersey idea

Not from me--I prefer it immensely--before they released it there was a thread on Fanhome's Flames board with about 15 or so ideas for the Flames new home jersey--there was one very similar to yours and it was my favorite.

(As an aside if New Jersey gets a new jersey-it would the "new New Jersey jersey")

To me there's just too much yellow in there.  Yellow cuffs only work if it is either the primary or secondary color (it's the third color for Calgary) and if their is a really dark color to give a huge contrast off it.  Good effort though.

I have to disagree. These are great.

Yellow should be the secondary color. Too many other teams use black already, and with the Flames, yellow's a natural fit. The use of black to keep the colors separated offsets the need for a big contrast between red & yellow.

If you look at the original Atlanta Flames jerseys, which is basically what Calgary used for years after the team moved--I believe yellow is the secondary colour--I always saw it that way--Stampeders are Red & White--Flames Red & Yellow--I don't mind a bit of black for trim--but the Flames have overdone it.

which is why I chose to emphasise the red and yellow. Im so used to black being a part of the flames scheme now that I dont want to see them drop it. I would however, like to see them tone it down a bit, which is what I chose to do here.

like you said, the flames two main colors should be red and yellow, with black being a third color.

Chicago, Philly & Florida blacks - stick to the original darks and please replace these with a true alt

Florida's is more dark blue than black.

No matter what you think the top two colors are, I think the jersey would look tons better if you  switched the yellow and black SHB.
