Maybe the secondary logo in front is a bit much, but it would still look awesome with the logo placements the way they are now.
No to black 3rd's when black is not already in the color scheme. (Well, it is but very little of it.) Just look at the Islanders.

Also, bring back the darker blue. And there are jerseys that are worse for sure.

What if we just stuck with these? Now it sounds like a pretty good idea to me, no?

I wouldn't say they're "SO much" better, but they were better.

I for one love the current 3'rds, I like the blue as the main color, it uses a color that's already apart of their color scheme, and it hadn't been used by them yet

Seriously? Ours isn't better than Dallas' NBA jersey? I'd say it is in the bottom 5 but not the worst.

It might be considered sacrilege to some, but I for one really like this jersey and am a proud owner.

As I said in the other thread, our Uniprons are hideous but they're better than Anaheim, Dallas, Florida, LA, Minnesota, Nashville, Tampa Bay and Winnipeg are all worse than ours.

Also, please no black jerseys or feet on the front of the jersey.

There is nothing wrong with our logo. Don't need to change it.

Our jerseys are not that beautiful, but sure hells not 30th.

Bring back the burgundy 3rd.

Anyone who only put Chicago at 11th and ranks a constipated whale at 17th doesn't get a lot of respect from me. That being said, I've never been a big fan of the Avs uni... but they're not the worst.

Don't touch the logo, but I would like to see uniform set without black. Burgundy jersey and socks with silver/blue stripes, blue pants, gloves and helmet.

Boom.

Well, I think that's a nice fan jersey, just like it's meant to be, but should and will be kept off the ice.

I don't see any appeal in that black jersey.

Suppose some fans do. They're made to get money from fans after all. Just like all these pink versions for women and stuff.

I'd love to see a change in the Avalanche logo. I really never did like it.

I miss our old jerseys, especially our old 3rd jerseys.

I don't think our current jerseys are the worst in the NHL, but definitely in the bottom percentile.

Not like I really care, but if I was going to rank the jerseys, the Avs would be in the bottom 3rd, not last.

Now if we were talking old school Avs jerseys then it would be a top 5 jersey.

This is a retarded list. Sounds like one bored reporters opinion.

How are Columbus and Minny in the top 10, and the Avs dead last?

That said, they really blew it when they got rid of the burgandy 3rd's with the diagonal piping. Best jersey they ever had.

I think the majority of us will agree that this 3rd jersey was the best and that they should bring it back . I wonder if there's a way to let the team know about our preference and if they will actually listend, one thing is sure someone should tell them .

Maybe the Avs have made me jaded in this regard, but I feel like no matter how many letters you write, the Avs only do things one way. Their way. That 3rd jersey is as good as dead, and it's never coming back.

its a joke we are the worst in the league, the ducks have MUCH worse jerseys.

the color scheme is great, burgundy is our unique color and it looks great when used in a not terrible design, just look at our old thirds.

that said, its pretty impossible to say our current set are not bottom 5 in the league.

I actually really dig that black jersey idea. Maybe not the logo but the colours for sure.
