The only uniform that could ever make teal and eggplant look good.

Canes and Stars new uniforms revealed later today. Should be interesting.

Nah, recolour the duck foot "D" (one of the best logos in the NHL) in eggplant and teal and stick it on the 90s uniforms.

Love that logo.

What is up with the identity crisis of Anaheim? I swear the next rebranding of the Angels will have them named "Los Angeles/Anaheim/Orange County Angels of California, planet Earth"

Well, I mean, Anaheim itself is like barely a city. Both are Orange County's teams, and Anaheim is only 10% of that.

Yeah, there are smaller cities with teams, like Pittsburgh. But there is no 'Anaheim metro area' per se.

Those look nice, glad they went back to green and not black for the dark jersey. Not a bad logo either.

Yes, yes they do. They were a complete failure right off the hop. Ugly piping and the original material didn't breath well, so most teams went back to the old stuff.

CCM made the best jerseys. The best in my collection are CCM-mint condition never worn 1999 Hasek white goathead authentic jersey, near mint condition 1995 Brodeur white authentic jersey with 95 cup finals patch.. That ultra-fill material back in the mid 1990's was my favorite

How did you leave out a leaping panther snapping a hockey stick in half and an orca shaped like a "c"?

That was probably one of the more unique and identity building aspects of the old jerseys. The hem stripe was well done, thought it just needed to be repeated on the sleeves. Now they've traded that in for a generic as hell red version of the Leafs jerseys. Yay?

Don't be so technical

And how stupid would 2 of those stripes have looked. It's a jersey, not a textbook.

I think you're on different pages here. Brodie is referring to our secondary logo



His belief is that there should be two flags on the hockey stick, not one. Personally I do feel he's being a bit pedantic on this. I have no problem with the one flag - it's cleaner and less cluttered. Two flags brings the risk of blocking out the triangle in the background.

Anyone else think the Hurricanes logo on their new uniforms looks way too high up?

There's just so much empty space between the logo and the stripes and the logo is right next to the captain C.. It's definitely not centered that's for sure

The logo was not moved. It was only resized.

Canes should have kept the flags... They look like Montreal Junior now..

Better yet, bring back the Whalers

The Leafs are just a generic as hell blue version of Canes jerseys.

Agreed. It looks dumb being up so high. You could fit a second Canes logo in that empty space.

You said it. The "must have two flags" argument is ridiculous. It's an inconsequential detail that only a small group of people are even aware of. There is no reason obsess over it. You are allowed a little artistic license when you design a logo. Two flags is not appealing visually. It does not work for a logo.

Or you could like resize the stick and flag to fit the second one in... you know, so you don't look like you have no idea what you're doing. There's a difference between artistic license and getting something wrong, it'd be like the Ducks having a chicken for a logo or the Bruins using a polar bear.
