I love the new Hurricanes alts, the only thing that I don't like is that the flags on the bottom are silver, when they are red in the logo (and should be red if going for accuracy). And for some reason, I think these will look a lot better on ice than the Blackhawks who I think have a very boring all-black set.

JQK beat you to it a couple of pages ago, Neon.

But it's still cool to see what it looks like. ^_^

Well... crap! I blame it on reading 2 hours of a book on Hitler before I came on here... or the fact I was trying to avoid reading another page of that 800+ page bio...

If it had the version of the logo with "BOSTON" arching over the bear, and some hem striping, I'd be very interested. As it stands, though, no thanks.

Are any of the new 3rds in NHL 09? Or is there a code to unlock them that hasn't been released yet?

I just checked and there is a placeholder for jerseys called "Alternate". Placeholders are just a shadow of a hockey player. You don't see any glimpses of what the jerseys will look like. So there must be a code going to be released, because there is a spot to enter it.

Teams it blacked out alts are:

Atlanta

Boston

Buffalo has 2

Carolina

Chicago

Dallas

Edmonton

LA

Isles

Ottawa

Philly

Pittsburgh

Phoenix

St Louis

San Jose

Tampa Bay

Toronto

Vancouver

Why does Buffalo have 2?

Love them! A slight throwback to their style of the 80's and there's never anything wrong with that.

Bravo, Boston. Bravo.

Surprisingly, I agree with Brass.

RBK is 3 for 3 this fall. This is either a harbinger of things to come, or setting us up for major disappointment down the road.

Really? Buffalo was a hit? The addition of piping and silver stripes helped an already great uniform?

Well, we don't know for sure if that's their actual third jersey. With the string of false, Photoshopped "cell phone" pictures from last summer, I'm holding my judgement on any jersey until the team releases them officially.

does anybody know what colour of socks the Bruins will be wearing with that jersey?

When they first tested them out, they used black socks, with striping similar to what their alternate uses on the sleeves. Perhaps they'll stick with that? Personally, I hope they go with yellow socks.

Mierda.

1. The pattern at the bottom was supposed to represent hurricane flags. What does it represent in gray, a roll of film?

2. It was always dumb how the flag logo only had one flag when it was supposed to represent a hurricane, and making it the primary logo only enhances that. It's supposed to be in the shape of North Carolina, which I guess is why they just went with one, but why not a second flag in the shape of South Carolina? (Do people from South Carolina care about the Canes?)

3. Just way too drab.

But on the bright side, now that the uniform set includes black pants, maybe they'll eventually use them with the red uniforms, and spare us the blood clot look.

The FLAG is in the shape of North Carolina?

O_O

Really? You could maybe make a case that the triangle in the background is an abstract form of the state... maybe, but even that's a stretch.

The flag? Wow...

Triangle doesn't represent the state of North Carolina, it represents the 3 anchors of the Research Triangle. Raleigh, right corner, Durham, top corner, and Cary or Chapel Hill (depending on who you talk to), left corner.

I know that. I'm just trying to figure out where he sees North Carolina anywhere in that logo...

Sigma?

Maybe I'm crazy, but I could've sworn I read that when the Hurricanes' logos were unveiled.
