2013-2014 NHL Uniform & Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

Is that the NHL '94 mode? Could be that part of it is to give slightly inaccurate uniform from a template.

I like that pants stripe actually. I'm not a huge fan of plain pants to be perfectly honest. It'll also help separate the Preds' look from the Sabres' and Blues'.

Ehh, I think using gold as the primary colour is enough to distance them from Buffalo and St. Louis.

I think the stripe will work a lot better with the white jerseys than with the gold ones. I'm gonna reserve judgement for when I see the actual thing.

'94 mode has blue ice and other than a few gameplay tweaks is the same as every other mode.

arent we due for another Sabres 3rd jersey pic?

They just did one a few days ago that wasn't posted here. I would but I'm on mobile. It showed nothing. Basically looked like the new yellow Reebok practice jerseys.

You know things are slow in the uniform world when we're all clamoring over a pant stripe.

Perhaps it was just bullkapookie, but the manager at a hockey store said that a Bauer representative said they are planning to take over part or half the NHL team uniforms in 2014. When is Reebok's contract up? And is this even true?

Reebok's contract doesn't expire until 2017, if I remember correctly. Maybe they landed some kind of equipment contract?

The Reebok contract expires in 2016. There have been rumblings that Bauer will try to make a bid for that contract, but I would highly doubt they'd split the league in 2014.

They should just bring back the old CCM 6100 cut regardless of which company logo appears on the back. All the edge designs worth keeping could transfer seamlessly to those jerseys (I have listed them below). What I wouldn't give to see the end of those hideous scooped hemlines...

Boston Bruins

Chicago Blackhawks

Dallas Stars

Detroit Red Wings

Edmonton Oilers

Montreal Canadiens

New Jersey Devils

New York Islanders

New York Rangers

Philadelphia Flyers

Toronto Maple Leafs

Vancouver Canucks

Winnipeg Jets (with straight hem stripes)

By my count, 20 teams were hit by the switch to Reebok. I'd say 13 could be classified as "God-foresaken monstrosities" (Atlanta, Buffalo, Calgary, Colorado, Dallas, Edmonton, Nashville, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Washington). Today, those numbers are 12 and 6. I fear that a manufacturer switch may destroy all this progress.

(It may seem that I'm being pretty liberal with my use of "God-foresaken monstrosity. I'm not. Look back at 2007-08. Teams who forgot that hem stripes existed (eg. Toronto, Phoenix) are bad, but I'm not even including them. I'm talking about the Colorados, Blues, and Calgarys from six years ago. Hard to believe there were that many!)

2007/08 was the worst the league ever looked. That summer was a uniform apocalypse... Especially when you look at the 2006/07 season.

I like the modern cuts. The scooped hemlines and tighter fit look better.

When Reebok took over CCM, they actually made the 6100 jersey larger for a couple of seasons, with billowing arms and a wider chest. Suddenly, a 48 drowned me, but a 46 was a good fit. I assume this was done to make the streamlining of the Edge jersey seem even more dramatic by comparison.
