NHL 2011-2012: Possible Uniform Changes

Recommended Posts

Love the home, hate the road. The striping on the sleeves are so cluttered.

I'm in love. They're beautiful. I must have one.

I'm not so sure the two blues work together, nor that the horizontal and vertical sleeve stripes don't clash badly.

Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing your Winnipeg Blue Jackets. ZZZZ! ZZZZZ! ZZZZZ! Should have gone Red and Grey with acents of blue. Just my 2cents.

I like everything except the striping on the whites. Had they made the blue arm length stripes into shoulder yolks instead they could have avoided the vertical and horizontal stripe clash. I think it would have worked much better. Other than that, they're both pretty nice.

They're lucky Nashville didn't adopt their old thirds full time. It looks like Nashville/Columbus had a lovechild.

Well, I have to have one for the collection, when do the replicas go on sale?

While not perfect we should all be thankful for this unveiling for the following reasons...

-No Piping

-No Side Panels

-No Front Numbers

-No Contrasting Nameplates or any other faux retro elements

-Broad Horizontal Stripes on the hem.

Yes the NHL is slowly moving back to respectability, at least when it comes to the jerseys.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

I also like the way the arm horizontal stripes cut through the vertical stripe on the away jerseys. Light blue at a minimum. No outlandish nameplates or number fonts. Good work. Really good work.

Sums up my thoughts exactly.

The blues are definitely the superior of the two uniforms, but the whites keep things interesting.

My favorite part is that it looks like a pre-edge sweater. No bettman stripes, there's hem-stripes, regular white instead of vintage white, full sleeve stripes, and a number font that isn't trying too hard. It's a really classy sweater that is a replacing probably the least classy sweaters the NHL has ever seen (Thrashers).

I just wish they had the players model the uniform as it'll be worn on the ice. Sometimes teams make interesting choices with their socks and I'd like the see the full package. We already know they're going to wear plain navy pants.

I think I like the knockoffs more.

Agreed

My fear became reality - the red on the logo looks EXTREMELY out of place now, with the uniform being mostly double blue. They couldn't even include just a little red trim?

I like the design of the uniforms, but the colors just don't look very thought out. Even the slightest bit of red would've saved it for me. I don't hate 'em, but I'm not really loving them at all, either.

The road jersey reminds me of what the Bruins wore before the Edge redesign. I think it would look a bit less cluttered if they did the same things the Bruins did and didn't show the shoulder/arm stripe in between the two blue arm stripes.

I continue to be underwhelmed by the Jets' identity package. The unis, right in step with the logo, deliver another "meh" from me. Not horrible, just non-descript. The logo and unis feel like placeholders until the permanent package is done. I know they are not, but they both just feel unfinished.

There's no better way to compliment your minor league logos than with beer league jerseys, I always say. They look like they're suiting up to open the season against the Kootenay Ice, not the Montreal Canadiens.

That's not at ALL like what the Bruins had. THe bruins only had stripes contained within the arm stripe. They did not wrap around the arm.

Is it just me or does the name and number font, ironically enough, resemble an italic version of the font the Coyotes used from 1996 til 2003?

Key phrase here: "remind me of". Not "look exactly like".
