Everyone is, but the biggest change expected for the Pens is the changing of the brand logo from Reebok to Adidas. It'll be the same jersey designs with the new cut, not exactly super exciting (thank God).

Nope. I think they're eyesores, and one of the worst jerseys out. I much prefer the current setup

The black is fine. For many Flames fans (including myself), the 04-07 jerseys are classics in their own right. Most of the frustration with the current design is due to the weird piping and flags.

In a perfect world, the retros become our current set with a less busy black 'C' third. At the very least we were hoping that Adidas would clean up our current set, but it looks like our owners had other plans

It's not that people who want Calgary to go back to the red and yellow are living in the past and crave outdated nostalgia uniforms. It's because the retros are a great looking hockey uniform, and the current ones are horrible, and black is boring as a uniform color. It works for certain teams like the Kings and Flyers, but it's like the people who want it on Calgary's uniforms would want it on the Redwings, Leafs and Habs too.

The use of black is not even in the top ten things wrong with the current Calgary uniform. The awful striping, horrendous piping, and unnecessary Alberta flag shoulder patch (which for some horrible reason is on their main set, yet the oval with the mountains is not) overshadow the usage of black. To be honest, the black actually helps their identity. I think a set based on their original design with some black as a secondary color can give them an iconic look.

Poor Calgary, they had nice jerseys in the 80s and a brief time in the early 2000s, have had crap ever since.

That's exactly how I feel too. I think there is a better option, but they are the lesser of evils. It's the piping and crap under the arms that makes the Flames jerseys among the ugliest in the NHL

I always liked the flaming horse logo Calgary had. It looked good on the shoulders and was decent on their black uniforms.

I know I'm in the minority but I can't stand calgarys retro ketchup and mustard McDonald's employee sets from the 80's. They are so hard to look at especially the red ones.
The black works so nicely, and it's not like it's the main colour for the sets.
The 04-07 era sets are their best imo.

to go even deeper into this train of thought, their first jersey was only blue and white. Dey da tru OG's Typical Toronto. Thievery.
Well we had the Blueshirts, and then the Arenas, and then we totally abandoned blue, and then came back to it. It was 17yrs, between when the Habs last wore it to the same degree, and Maj. Smythe didn't even name the team after them, If he stole anything its from the still running Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team, or a regiment who he fought with.

Since you didn't do much research on us as well...I can see your hate.

The nosebleed horse would be a great shoulder/arm patch, but somehow I didn't really like it big.

I don't like the black on the Flames jersey. Overall, the jerseys reek of 90s graphic design. But in a bad way, a tribal or barb wire tattoo kind of way.

Getting into the round theme which has creeped into the NHL, I really like the different flaming C, going back to the Atlanta days.

I don't get why the flaming C is black on the homes but red on the aways. At least where it's white on the home retros it feels like a lesser change to the red aways. Black just seems weird to me. I think that's why I like the McDonald's uniforms lol...

I've always loved that black alt. Pretty much the only jersey I've ever used if I play as them in NHL games.
