Great. Now I have to buy 4 new jerseys. The canes and dolphins new home and away. Just really glad we are keeping the same logos.

and with the font not being italicized, it might be slightly more challenging to spot fake jerseys from 100ft away.

Woke up to this on instagram. I would love to see more of a black and red thing, less white.

Looks like they're going away from the slanty font, too. Which I actually liked, but oh well.

I hope it's something simple akin to the Lightning's last redesign, or the Islanders going back to their 80's style uniform.

I would love a classic look but something like Nashville would be awesome as well

Agreed. Looks just the Capitals font in this photo

I wouldn't assume that's the jersey font, it might be just something they rolled out for the announcement. Supposedly the first actual jersey image leak isn't for another couple of days.

I'm assuming they are just going to get rid of most of the ugly piping. Looks like the removed the white around the neck and shoulders on the back.
My wish list:

No piping.
Less busy bottom of jersey.
Black helmets and black pants with red jersey (a la Flames).
Slightly modified "eye" to have more dimension.

Something is happening with the pants and the socks because its specifically mentioned in the release. The helmet in the picture is red so I don't think you are getting your wish on that one. Black pants might be on the table though. The only other team that has different pants color than helmet is the Rangers (off the top of my head).

Maybe they will do away with the hurricane looking thing with hurricane flags.

Go to more of Red/Black

You're probably and right and I did notice the red helmet. But my wishful thinking is that it's a misdirection play.

And the other thing I'd like to see removed for the new uniforms is Pitkanen. Mostly because I think he has to go if you want to bring in the kind of Dman the blue line sorely lacks.

My expectation is that they will come up with a jeresy design that is something between very good and excellent. Then do something stupid and unnecessary that ruins the whole thing.

Excellent. This was my biggest concern.

Quote:
Beginning Friday, May 24, teaser swatches of the new uniforms will be posted each day. Follow the team on Instagram for a first look at each day's teaser image.
...
This exclusive event, which will include lunch, is closed to the general public, but there are two ways in which you can enter for a chance to attend.

Five (5) people will be randomly chosen from this enter-to-win form. Each selected winner can bring one (1) guest.
Five (5) people will be randomly chosen from an enter-to-win on Canes Rewards. Entries cost 2,000 points, and if you use the bonus code NEWSTORM, you can earn an extra 2,000 points for a free entry. Each selected winner can bring one (1) guest.

In addition, beginning at noon on Friday, May 24, Canes Rewards users can purchase one of five (5) slots for 150,000 points. These are sure to go fast, so be ready to scoop up your spot!
From a marketing standpoint, I like what the Canes are doing on social media these days. This is a nice example of leveraging an event to capture consumer data.


Anyway, I hope the fundamental look stays fairly close to what we have had all along, with the major changes being to the striping and piping. That seems to be a near universal sentiment so this should be a softball opportunity to boost jersey sales.

I'm hearing the new "eye" logo will be created by Compuware programmers so yeah, it'll look like it was designed by an etch-a-sketch.

It should be just the change that's needed IMO, keep the main logo, declutter the bottom, and make the look a bit cleaner overall. And though I don't mind the shoulder piping, it seems most here will be glad to see it gone. Pretty excited to see the teasers everyday, we could probably make some pretty funny shops with all of them towards the end

Looks like a full black collar?

Sort of like the Leafs white collar on their home jerseys

Oh and I'd add tie-strings to my wish list.

I would. It's clearly a new jersey that's being shown there (no piping, no white in the collar). Why wouldn't they use the current nameplate font if it wasn't being changed? The current font is readable, so why not use it unless it was part of what's being changed?
