NHL 2011-2012: Possible Uniform Changes

Recommended Posts

Does the addition of those lines in the numbers make it unique enough to not be violating the use of the ducks font?

Are they proprietary?

If they are, then I am guessing that either Reebok or the NHL owns the rights and that neither of them have a problem with two teams using the font.

Folks, maybe it's just me, but that looks an awful lot like the Thrashers' number font.

Here's a picture to illustrate:

We'll know more once we see some more numbers.

EDIT: On second thought, maybe it looks more like the Ducks' font, as many people here have stated:

How do we know that it's the Ducks' font? We've only seen what the 1 looks like; while that 1 does look like Anahiem's, 2-9 and 0 could look completely different. We won't know 'till we see more numbers.

True North to make Hockey Ops announcement today at 11 AM

http://winnipeg.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=566921

It's probably just to officially confirm that they have indeed hired Claude Noel as their head coach which, while reported yesterday, was never actually formally announced.

Not surprised the numbers are so similar to Anaheim's. Those two teams were the guinea pigs for sublitwill, and now lots of teams are using it. I still think it is cheap looking, and hated when Atlanta swapped to it last year.

I didn't know what sublitwill was until I looked it up right now. It would appear that the Ducks only used Sublitwill during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons and only for a handful of players as many game-worn jerseys from those seasons have the standard triple layered twill (albeit kiss-cut). The Predators recent sets only seemed to use Sublitwill on the sleeve numbers. The back numbers were still two solid layers.

Corey Perry was just on Sportscenter and he was wearing the Ducks alt. jersey. Are the Ducks expected to make a jersey change too?

I don't think the Ducks are yet committed to going to the third jersey as a full-time home jersey. I think they just wear it a lot for public events now because it's new.

I'm hoping that, if these are similar to what we will actually see unveiled today, the piping at least goes UNDER the hem stripes instead of over it. That bothers me.

Count me among the fans of using yellow as the home, but also in the anti-apron strings camp. I just don't get them on any jersey they've ben used. Maybe it was like that when the first team put Northwestern stripes on a football jersey's sleeves. But it just never looks right to me.

Northwestern stripes never made anyone look pear-shaped and overweight the way apron-string piping does.

Looks like Winnipeg will announce it name at the podium before their pick. It will probably be Jets, just not sure if it will have "Winnipeg" or "Manitoba" in front of it.

How many cats do you know with 6 claws on one paw?

I think you're reading too much into the scratch marks.

The schedule just came out today. Does anyone know if New Jersey is going to wear the throwbacks again for a "retro-night" in March like they did the past 2 seasons?

What's their nearest home game to St. Patrick's day?

that would be incredibly selfish of them (hear me out). The draft is NOT about the teams themselves (in terms of an off-ice perspective such as jerseys, logos, etc). The draft is and should always be about the players that got drafted and what they mean to the lineups.
