That's too bad. Lady Liberty was one of my favorites

On the subject of the Sharks, I hope not, but are they going the route of phasing their teal out, a la the Jacksonville Jaguars? By wearing their black jerseys at home the last two postseasons, it leads me to believe that their teal jerseys' days might be numbered. I seriously hope not because they are "Team Teal" and they always looked great in them, so why get rid of it?

Just my own speculation but I can see them going to a reto alt to replace the black third. That jersey has to be hated by 90% of the fanbase.

I'm part of the fanbase and I don't hate the black thirds. I don't mind it being a third. But that's all it ever needs to be.

I thought they've been wearing the black alts for their playoff runs?

Hm.

Also what's the general consensus: Is this logo still a "Modern Classic?" Frankly I've always despised it. I'm still in love with the teal/silver/black looks from bygone years.

FWIW, I did a concept that blended the soon-to-be-former set and the late 1990s/2000s "star-patterned" sets (shameless plug alert):

I like your concept, just not sure it can be done with the EDGE template. With the EDGE jerseys, everything that is a different colour is a different panel on the jersey.

These concepts generally didn't have the Edge template in mind, but I don't know--Reebok has been somewhat able to use designs not fit for the template. This is probably out there for Reebok. Maybe if Nike can get the contract, however... :P

My friends and I who are Sharks fans don't hate it. But we don't love it. We accept it for what it is. We're glad the taping goes around the stick for once and the fierce look is a lot better than the original. But we still prefer the color scheme of teal, silver and black.

I think it's an upgrade to the original logo, color scheme aside. If they wanted to go back to the teal-silver-black, I wouldn't have any objections.

The Kings did that too, then switched them to primaries for the past season.

Hopefully, the only Californian team without a Cup won't copy.

Such a shame the Rangers are letting go of one of the best logos in all of sports. Such a great logo, that sucks.

I think the Sharks logo is one of those, like the Arizona Cardinals or the Hornets, where you you don't realize how badly the update was needed till you see the two side-by-side. That said, it's not perfect. I don't care for the burnt orange as a tertiary color other than the stick, and I don't like the concavity in the triangle. I tried to fix these gripes once:

The Sharks going with the Black jerseys full time would be a huge mistake. I for one love the current set, especially the teal jersey. The small amount of orange adds some much needed warmth to the Shark's pallette and helps the striping, numbers and logo pop. The only thing I would change is getting rid of those useless, obtrusive front numbers.

On another note, Cole J... When is your article about the Stars' new look going to be up? Looking forward to it :)

The new Sharks logo reminds me of something from an anime comic. While its still an upgrade, I don't think it's too professional looking. I would work on fixing the eye, teeth and stick.

That's a great update admiral.

Anyway I don't think the orange works for the Sharks. San Jose isn't in Southern California, the overly sunny theme doesn't really fit. Especially when the team's named after an animal that lives in the ocean.

More minor Stars rumblings. Mike Heika had a live chat on the Dallas Morning News site today, and said this about the new uniforms:

I know they were all over the map, and had all sorts of color choices, but that they made a late decision to stick with green. I heard they were very interested in ``Eagles'' green for a while, but that this prototype is more ``Celtics'' green. Other than that, I have no idea. I don't know what the new logo looks like, but that will probably make it or break it for a lot of fans.

I never liked how the Rangers used Lady Liberty on the practice jerseys, so I'm OK with the change.
