2013-2014 NHL Uniform & Logo Changes

Recommended Posts

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.

So Kelly Green essentially. Perhaps these will be modelled after the North Stars classic look. I just hope they aren't Yzermanized with just Kelly Green and White

As a fan of the North Stars back in the day, I like seeing kelly green and I hope the uniforms remind me of the old team. It's kind of strange since the North Stars moving is easily the worst moment of my spots fan life. Nevertheless, I want remnants of the old team to exist (even as I never totally let go of my bitterness). I honestly have a hard time imagining them being more inspired by the 1967-1991 color scheme as opposed to the Norm Green "change the uniforms in preparation for the move to Dallas" look, but it would be fine by me.

Most concepts have always used a darker green, but I think it HAS to be kelly green to differentiate from the Wild.

Why? Dallas wore dark green well before the Wild even existed. Plus, Minnesota doesn't even wear a green primary anymore.

Because when Dallas switched to dark green, it became invisible at any distance against the black.

Make Dallas the lone stars so Minnesota can be the North Stars and then bring back the kelly green uniforms for the North Stars and make Dallas black and gold or red and blue.

Totally agree. Unfortunately, Lone Stars gets the thumbs down by the majority on the forum. Stars, IMHO, is way to generic and Wild sounds like an NLL team, not an NHL team.

Morgo, talking about Yzermanized kelly green and white jerseys, google images of the old Seattle Totems. Their green and white uniforms were beautiful, but both their whites and their greens were like the Red Wings' red and white home and away uniforms. More so than Tampa Bay's current unis.

I really thought the team was going to be called the "South Stars" when they moved. You had teams in the past with that name like the Memphis South Stars

Nashville South Stars

and Birmingham South Stars

The joke went right over your head.

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

Just the past two seasons

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.

I've always thought it was the anime interpretation of a sports logo.

I'm not gonna beat ya up on that (since two other people already did), but speaking as a native of North Texas, I will just tell you that changing the name to "Lone Stars" would be seen as gimmicky and ANY color other than green would take away its uniqueness as it is the only major pro sports team in the state with no red, blue, or silver in its combo.

Please, NO Lone Stars or R/W/B combos....

If they haven't officially announced the new logo then what is this logo that's prominently featured on their website?

I don't understand why the Stars are doing all of the anniversary stuff this year. They're a season early. 93-94 was their first in Dallas.

Detroit is getting rid of their vertically arched nameplates as well.
