I dislike the fact that their shoulder patch is practically the same as the front logo - looks kinda stupid. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

is it really necessary to have a players number on their jersey in 4 places and on their helmet in 2?

 

as far as the design i am fine with it. would have liked to see some piping around the waist as that part looks bland, but overall they seem fine. i am with euro_twins, as a fan base we shoudnt be bashing them for being plain or like practice jerseys as the wings are the same way.


I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

I'm sorry, but it gets tiresome when so many people automatically think the Wings' jerseys are the best just because we are fans of the team.  Like anything else, we can try to say, no, honestly, I think they are the best, but as fans, it is impossible to be objective.

 

I'm not a fan of the Sharks' jerseys either, but I'm not about to make fun of them because they are going to these, basically using practice jerseys.  That makes no sense to me.  If you don't like the jerseys, that's more about personal preference. 

 

If you are really concerned about them looking simply like practice jerseys, if you have a look at the Wings' jerseys, they are more similar to their practice jerseys than the Sharks.  In fact, some might make the argument that the Wings' game jerseys are more "simple" than the practice jerseys.  But that's okay because they are "classic" right?

I'm digging the laces round the collar, very 90s :lol:

 

Sorry, "classic"

Are you being sarcastic when you suggest "classic" when it really only relates to the 90s?  Hard to tell.  Reason I ask is because laces were used by a lot of teams back in the 50s, 60s, use in the 90s was a throw back thing.

I don't see the big deal.  The jerseys won't win any "Awesome Jersey" competition, but they're not the most hideous we've ever seen in the NHL.  This generates a big "meh" from me.

 

But it does get annoying how some teams change their jerseys every year and say it'll magically make them better.

Well, I'm guessing the rationale of creating better performance is really there because there should be a real reason to re-design the jerseys.  The real reason is to generate more jersey sales, but they aren't going to come out and use that in the media release.

On the bright side, I don't see any ugly vertical stripes that are predominating (ruining) NHL jerseys right now.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The sad part of all of this is how many shoulder caps, stripes, and orange accents are now unemployed in the Bay Area.

To be fair, it's not just Wings fans that think they have one of the greatest jerseys/logos in the sport if not the greatest:

Yes and no.  Laces were all the rage in the 90s (for soccer strips too) in a classic/throwback way.  So this is about 20 years too late to be on the laces bandwagon - unless they're throwing back to the 90s of course, they were 20 years ago ;)  80s fashion is all the rage atm, so its only a matter of time before the 90s come back in (and I can be cool again! :lol: )

Its an O6 jersey, and there isn't an O6 team that looks bad.  I find Boston a bit meh, but thats just me.  Toronto, Montreal, NYR, even the Chicago Frakking Blackhawks, all look great.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I think I disagree with almost everybody on here.

 

Lump their old jerseys in with the crap piping that the Blues and Avalanche use (Predators used to use).

 

Simpler = better.

I always thought the rangers had some of the ugliest jerseys in the nhl... I guess that's just me

The number on the front is the worst part about these uniforms.

Not sure if this was directed at me. (I'm narcissistic.)

 

I don't think these jerseys are lame because they look like practice-wear. I think they're lame because, well, they're lame. But I do also think there's maybe something to the idea that this is "Practice Uniform" done wrong, whereas ours is it done right.

 

"Because it's 'classic'?"

 

I guess, yes. But I'm not talking about the heritage and legacy and all that. It's just a great look. It's, again, elegant. It's sexy. It works. It doesn't make more than half the people who see it go "Huh? Why? Where's the.... And why is there...."

They're changing to the practice uniforms because they don't choke in practice. They're hoping it will carry over to the games.


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

Actually, no.  They're still keeping the black 3rd.  They even have a schedule as to which games they'll wear the black jerseys (including the January 19th game against Detroit).  Long and short, they'll wear them every Thursday and Sunday, excluding the season opener.

#SJSharks will wear black, alternate sweaters 11 times this season (Thurs & Sun).

When they play the Jets, I hope they will have a West Side Story retro night.

From The Malik Report:

 

 

 

 Imagine the reaction if someone came up with the Red Wings' design today: "No, sorry, it's too plain -- can you add some black accents? And the logo has too much subtle detail. And where's the alternate uniform?" Fortunately, nobody was worried about any of those things back in 1932, when the Wings came out with their basic look. Eight decades later, it still works. Bonus points for the vertically arched lettering on the player names.

 

Indeed!


When they play the Jets, I hope they will have a West Side Story retro night.

 

That would be too clever by far. :)
