I don't think the Avs need a full "re-branding" like the Stars just did, but it would be nice if they would change the jerseys. Our current ones are just piss poor and look like they were designed by a high school designer.

I'm not sure what I'd do particularly, but I would keep the colors the same. I think it would be cool to incorporate something from the Quebec days into it, like the fleur-de-lis. I also think the 3rd jersey should use the yeti foot as a primary logo if not that go with something similar to what we currently use but I'd go back to the burgundy as the base color not blue.

I don't think anything representing the old Nordiques would be fair, since by all accounts Quebec is going to be getting their team back soon, and very well could have similar looking jerseys. At least hopefully they do.

I love the design of 0194 but I'd use our current logo and change the color scheme so it's closer to the way it is now

Big no to this. I've never known why people are so stuck on putting something Nords-related in our jersey. No other team that's moved has ever done anything like this (aside from Calgary who kept the name so there was a reason for it). It would be a slap in the face to people in Quebec too while they still don't have a team, so I'd hope it doesn't happen. Also the fleur-de-lis thing is ugly.

I... I actually don't have words for it. I don't think we should have a black jersey or do anything that doesn't have the main logo or COLORADO on the front of it, personally. Nothing else seems like it would work.

burgundy and blue.

a dark(ish) blue, not some gross baby-blue BS.

The logo could maybe use a little tweaking. Maybe get rid of the oval, maybe make the top look more jagged like a mountain. Maybe make it a little smaller. But don't abandon it or the colors.

Redesign the jerseys, and bring back the burgundy third (with the laces).

I think the logo looks incomplete without the oval.

I can't believe that you as a fan would want this unless you're 13 or something. Do you think the Leafs or the Canadiens or the Bruins or the Wings or the Flyers or the Rangers have done a major rebrand in the past several decades? This is what 3rd and 4th jerseys are for, you don't change the identity of the entire club just because of a new coach and VP.
Sorry to have offended you so deeply.

HAHA to each his own I guess, I love all three of those. I also dont think our current jerseys are all that bad either AND I loved our original jerseys... I guess I just have different taste from a lot of people here. I do think the black one needs at least the avs logo on the shoulder.

Maybe Landy and Duchene just make our current ones look good LOL

They also need to retire our Blueberry jersey because it is so freakin ridicolous without a stripe at the bottom. Bring back the old burgundy third and make it blue because I think our 3rd jersey should always be blue.

That foot is the cheesiest logo ever. If they ever go with that on the front of the jersey, I'll never be able to see an Avs game again, because I'll be cringing the whole time.

I wouldn't buy another Avs jersey if it didn't have Burgundy in it. Although I also refuse to buy the apron jerseys as well, so theres that.

I'm not very good at making these concepts so it's a bit rough but I hope you like it.

It's quite simple and all. Since most of us seem to like the mountain stripe at the bottom I put that in there. The stripes on the sleeves are quite similar to the ones in the blueberries. The silver stripes on the home jersey are a bit to slim but the one on the third is better. So obviously you can imagine the away jerseys off of these homes and thirds. The exact same as white/burgundy. Just add in the numbers and shoulder patches and there you go.

Tell me what you think.

Why do jerseys need to have a modern look. If something looks good, go with it.

I agree the old ones are gold but maybe they don't fit the cut of the jersey. We have to go towards the old design though, that's for sure.

In any case I hope they keep the current ones so I can actually wear my new one to a game next year.

Maybe not using the logo outright as the crest or anything, but I think if done right a Yeti 3rd jersey could be cool. Probably a fine line between cool and terribad though so there'd have to be a ton of work and thought put into it. With our luck it'd probably turn out pretty awful though
Really like these white ones. But yes, we need some sort of change.. like most people I don't want to see the logo changed drastically, maybe some tweaking, but a good logo stands the test of time (original 6 teams). Colours are also great, but some sort of design change is definitely in order.

I hope they don't change the logo.

That said, new jerseys would be nice

I think one thing we can all agree on...the white jersey needs to be the home jerseys again. Darks on the Road.
