NHL 2011-2012: Possible Uniform Changes

Recommended Posts

Gotta say the league patch on those Flyers jersey is placed pretty ridiculously. ^^^^

Did you also notice that the captain C is solid black and the alternate A is white on black

Are the Orangeville Flyers affiliated with the Philadelphia Flyers at all? Or is that like one of those high school rip offs?

Nope. Ontario Junior Hockey League. One step below the OHL.

Not quite as bad of a ripoff as the team I work for, the Hamilton Red Wings.

As far as I can tell, the Hamilton Red Wings originally were affiliated with the Detroit Red Wings. Hamilton joined the OHL as the Red Wings in 1960, back when NHL teams still had affiliations in the OHL (remember the whole Bruins/Oshawa Generals/Bobby Orr thing)

When the OJHL came into being, Hamilton just carried on the Red Wings tradition.

I was also referring to the Flyers.

Flyers rebranded this year, so I don't know any details.

Confusing way the team came about (previous Orangeville team folded, then another team moved there during the same offseason.)

The team before the Flyers was the Orangeville Crushers.

I intern for the USHL. You can't imagine all the NHL rip-offs I see night in and night out.

Color Werx, would it be possible to see the ASG Rookie Face-Off (or whatever the heck they are calling it this year) logo? Last year, the rookies in the skills competition wore it as a patch. Thanks!

Sorry if this was mentioned already, but I didn't see it... At their own outdoor AHL game a few days ago, the Adirondack Phantoms wore the (vintage) white equivalent of the Flyers' orange WC uniforms. What do you think of them? Would anyone want to see the Flyers adopt this and their WC uniforms full-time?

Personally, I detest the pee color and would prefer to see black numbers outlined in orange. And then there's that damned missing hem stripe again!

The Outdoor Classic in Hamilton between the Bulldogs and Marlies is in less than two weeks. No word yet about special uniforms.

Not sure if this has been posted, but here's the Blackhawks 85th anniversary logo

By the way, I noticed a possible inspiration for the Flyers' "missing hem stripe" design:

Weren't the Coyotes uniforms based off those as well?

Has anybody else noticed that the jerseys get marked up much more this year? I know the material for the retail "authentics" :rolleyes: changed, but I'd swear the on ice product is different too. Every game I watch, every team seems to have heavy puck marking on their whites. I've never noticed it to the extent I have this year. Just me?

All that I can imagine is that the material changed slightly and has made rubber transfers more frequent or teams are no longer using three sets during the season.

Nope, just a coincidence or something. Teams still have Canada-made Edge 2.0 jerseys and use three sets.

I liked the Thrashers identity, but the inconsistency was something that always held it back.

Same here, I liked the logo and light blue jersey, but there were a lot of problems too. Excess amount of colours, jerseys that didn't match, terrible alternate, etc.

The Thrashers identity started out good. Hardly a masterpiece of design but passable for 2000's expansion team. Unfortunately as the years went by it got worse and worse... The first mistake was making the powder blue alternate the home without making a matching road. The second mistake was not rectifying this problem during the edge changeover and allowing RBK to completely butcher two designs that weren't bad on their own merits. Consider the change-up that happened below...

Seriously what the *expletive* is that supposed to be. If I was paid to deliberately mess up the first design I doubt I could do a better job than RBK did.

The original home white Thrashers jersey ruled. I bought one as soon as they came out. The road was dumb because it had the ugly T logo as the chest logo instead of the swirling bird. The powder blue alt was godawful because of the asymmetric sleeve. And yeah, the Edge version of it is everything that's wrong with Reebok. Template design (also used by Philly), stupid piping, no more hem stripe, yuck.

Wait. Is that vintage white VS a white jersey? And yet in the following photo the Bears are wearing red.

I'm confused.
