2013-2014 NHL Uniform & Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

Calgary is wearing the new thirds tonight. The white numbers don't fit with the rest of the uniform. I think black numbers would have looked better.

I'll be switching stations to the Calgary game, during commercials.

I must say, the Calgary thirds are by far the best sweaters of their current set. Replace the script logo with a white flaming "C", make a matching road sweater (with red yokes), and the Flames would look respectable again.

That would look good on iceAndrewGagnon-CGY.png

No it wouldn't, because the awkward piping to nowhere is still there.

Also, replace the black helmets with matching red ones. Even though I still prefer the classic retro look, an all-red look with just the black pants would look really good.

Agree...wonder if the Flames could ever pull off yellow helmets with a red or black set. Thoughts? I feel they need some way to re-emphasize that color ...

Yellow helmets? No thank you.

The jerseys look really good from afar, at the distance of tv cameras. Those numbers really pop, too. Highly visible, highly legible, they do what numbers are supposed to do. In fact, with a white flaming C, the back numbers, the sleeve numbers, and the front logo would all pop equally, which would be perfect.

I hope they build on this third jersey and make a similar one with a white C as the home in the near future.

Well, yes, with this set, we have a biiiiiiiiiit of overkill. With a red or black set, would it look terrible?

I was just perusing the Ducks section on the NHL Shop, and these three items are listed as "Special Event Items". I don't know if that means a special NHL store event or a special NHL event, i.e. the Stadium Series. Might these give us a look to what the Ducks will sport? A whole lot of orange (including the first sweatshirt that is basically an orange version of the third jersey).

The orange ones seem to have black trim, while the far-right one has navy? Is navy part of their color palette?

If you want to confuse people (namely non-hockey fans) in the state of Oregon, go with the middle one. :upside:

I wouldn't look too much into it, it's likely the Ducks simply want to push for more orange on team apparel. If anything that first one might give us an idea on the colour balance of the jersey, but given that every team is selling basically the same design I don't think it's any indication of what the jersey will actually look like. That and outside of the primarily orange colour scheme it doesn't match the rumours so far.

Will Bure's banner tonight be in green and blue?

Navy? You might want to calibrate your monitor.

Names on the Rangers' ugly alternates are now vertically arched instead of radially. It looks better, but not good enough to warrant being worn in lieu of the classic blue shirts.

If the yellow/yellow is overkill, yellow helmets with a red or black base would be total obliviation. Maybe a red helmet.

I wouldn't mind a move like that, because I always enjoy a good ol' nostalgic sighting, reminiscent of 80s hockey games. The question is...could it work long term?

Even Stan Smyl's banner is in current Canucks colors, even though he only ever wore black/red/yellow.

Why are they pretending that part of their history never existed?

I like era specific banners but seeing how the canucks have used every colour in the rainbow during their history, maybe its best they don't go that route.
