So what you're saying is the group in charge of jersey design for SJ are actually a bunch of Shark haters?

Purely psychological.

You should remove the question mark in the title. I ignored this thread because I thought it was just discussion about whether there should be new jerseys. I didn't realize till now that there ARE actually new jerseys.

The new jerseys suck. The changes just keep getting worse and worse.

The white ones are definitely better than the teal ones, but I'm really disapointed that they didn't remove the front numbers (but these #'s are much cleaner). Like mentioned before, where does a "C" or "A" put a Stanley Cup patch? What if they had made the Finals last year? Would the GGM patch have been removed? I'm indifferent on losing the waist piping, but also think losing that makes the elbow piping look out of place (or that piping is just off to me, period).

Overall, I think it's an improvement over the old ones, but I'm not in love with them.

It looks to me like they tried to please everybody. I am so happy they kept at least a little bit of orange. I love the color scheme. Burnt orange sun over the pacific teal ocean people! How can you not appreciate that!?

I know this is off topic, but the Miami Dolphins got new uniforms too with the same color schemes. I love them too. I love our colors!

Yup. It's like we're touching the Prince of Wales Trophy every season.

I like the away better than the home. I still don't know why they only put in one orange stripe. The home looks less cluttered but I don't like the single stripe and the collar numbers.

Don't know if this has been mentioned but here is some of what Icethetics said about it.

Quote:
Before we get into the details of the newly unveiled SAN JOSE SHARKS primary uniforms, it might help to ask why they redesigned them in the first place. After all, they just redesigned their entire identity — logos and jerseys — in 2007. Why do it again after just six years?

Performance, in a word. According to the Sharks, the players love the lightweight third jersey. Why do you think they wear black every year come playoff time? So the main idea behind revamping the primary jerseys was to drop weight.

Sure, we can ask whether a few ounces here or there really makes any kind of difference. But then we've never played hockey at the NHL level, so what would we really know about that?

I am still perplexed by anyone liking the last incarnations, let alone viewing this as a step down. There is less orange and more teal, which is a win in itself. The front numbers don't even look as terrible when they are not crammed up against the black yokes. Lack of a black collar on the home jersey stands out more than anything, though.

I don't think these sweaters have that "lasting" effect, we will probably see other changes in 5 years. Would love to finally get that look we can use for decades and be proud of it.

I don't mind them so much, but I'm into minimalism(I could do without the front numbers still but that won't happen).

I skipped the last run of jerseys, I may buy one of these if I can't get a throwback this year.

The arm stripes with no other stripes just looks awkward to me. Don't hate them, but they're definitely not my favorite version of the SJ jerseys.

5-1-2 during season last year and 7-0-0 in playoffs. I'm pretty sure every year we win a lot when they wear the Blacks.

Was thinking the same thing. That's 410 regular season games ... then we have pre/post-season added to that. Too much, man ... too much.

Yep, unfinished practice jerseys. Needs a waist stripe.

I like them but the home one kinda looks like its missing something but I still like it. I think they should have done something more with the collar on the home one maybe make it white or black? Also they would look a bit better with a stripe at the bottom but these remind me of the previous Leafs jerseys that didn't have the stripe on the bottom. I think they'll grow more on everyone once we see them in action. I like them though.

Oddly enough, this wasn't that far off.

The white sweaters are a big improvement; I'll consider picking one up on sale. The teasers got me excited, but like most folks I'm underwhelmed with the teal sweater. I like the new lettering, but it just seems so bland now.

I definitely prefer the new road jersey over the new home jersey. Maybe they can switch them around like in the old days?

If I saw these jerseys in a dark club while heavily intoxicated, I still wouldn't like them.

They look like practice jerseys.

It's too bad they decided to keep the front numbers.

Also, am I the only one who hates the "jumping shark" logo? I wish we could just have the fin shoulder patch like the old days.
