Was a lot of fun looking through those. Thanks for sharing. Getting rid of that Reebok piping gives a lot of these a fresh look.
I liked how you took away the triangle from the Sharks logo – emphasizes the shark itself more and that looks cool. I never understood why they basically took the Penguins logo and changed the penguin into a shark and made it bite the stick. The triangle has always made it look too busy. A shark chomping a stick by itself, since it's hard to depict a shark chomping its fans' hopes and dreams.
I also like the Dallas ones better than what they have now, FWIW.
Love the Montreal alternates.
With the Kings I think the original ornate crown goes better with the purple and yellow (pure Dionne Simmer Taylor nostalgia) and the written Kings logo with the original white-black-silver Gretzkys. The black and purple has always looked terrible for a simple reason – black and purple is a crap combo. That's right, Baltimore Ravens.
As a Blues fan I'd be interested to see how you would tweak the jerseys if you took an inspiration from a) the home white early 70s style bluenote logo and spare white-yellow-blue (where the yellow isn't either gold or that bright yellow introduced in the mid 80s); and b) from the best era of Blues jerseys, the early 00s. That blend of different blues with a crisp white/yellow was the best they ever had.
Really enjoyed looking through these. Thanks again.
Haha, the Kings concept doesn't seem to get a lot of love. What would you LA fans like instead? Simple black and white?
two options: use the throwback purple ones the Kings have been wearing during their legends nights as the home , create a white road version of it, and use either the Gretzky era blacks as an alternate, or the newer crown (not the shield) black.
Take the Gretzky era jersey and put one of the two crown logos on them, and use the purple throwbacks as the thirds.
