They're just angry that they have to buy one.

People who are already saying they hate them before they see them, pretty much set themselves up for disappointment in the first place. No need to really discuss the jersey design with them.

I'm holding judgement right now before I see the whole thing. I may like it, I may not, but I won't know until I see how the full thing comes together. It may be the most creative jersey design, or it may be the worst ever, but we wont know until its in front of us fully.

Of the pictures and the teaser I've seen, I'm intrigued. I like the of script of "Buffalo" on the jersey, I like the Pants script as well, I like that its Yellow("Gold"), I like that it seems to be Blue on the shoulders, Instead of white or Silver/grey(something I'm sure most people would've hated), but I haven't seen enough of the bottom of the jersey, where the numbers are, how the numbers/Names look on the back, what color the helmet is, the socks, the way the pants, the nameplate, etc. To me, its not just the Jersey that should look nice, but the whole thing.

I can't wait.

I don't really see how team success is relevant to this discussion whatsoever.

I think his logic is coming from the "at least ya look good" mentality. I agree with it.

If the gold front blue back rumors are true it will be interesting to see what they do with the lower stripes. Traditionally with the same primary color in front and back the color of the stripes is not a problem.

With the gold front blue back it creates an interesting problem. Use gold stripes and they wash out in the front. Use Blue stripes and they wash out in the back.

Changing the color of the stripes from back to front would likely look odd.

No the greatest at Photoshop but I wanted to get a sense for the rough idea of what this will look like. Have a really hard time guessing how they will transition from the gold in front to blue in back, other than just straight seems.

eh, rough start for a mockup:

hmm, should probably do a white name plate

that is very similar to what I think the front will look like

Based on the latest teaser, I would say there's a white stripe running laterally, serving as a visual split between the front and back colors. That could just be on the sleeves as is shown in the photo, but we'll see.

Thinking sort of like this Blue Jackets jersey, just without the gap inbetween the navy/red, and their red and white would be Buffalo's grey and gold, respectively.

I like the way it looks on the front with the thicker / middle stripe on the bottom being blue. When it is gold it washes out the front too much. But, then it looks washed out in back. Switching stripe colors from front to back would look too odd. Could add some more thin stripes of white to break things up I guess.

Dont think I can shop the lateral white stripe to break things up on that image. Would need a side shot. Also can imagine how this would look in real life.

100% agree with the stripe, great change. The all-blue effect on the back looks much better. I think the biggest reason might be that the front has a blue top, so it can't be all gold no matter what the stripe is, and having the stripe blue gives visual balance with the top and bottom. As the top and middle of the back are both blue, having the stripe also blue gives visual consistency.

The gray looks terrible. Totally unnecessary.

I could definitely see that being the case. Might have to go make a mockup now.

Any chance of collecting all of the leaked images and putting them in the first post?

Ok, so I am going to work on making a mock based more closely on the various leaked images. This image interests me as it looks like a lateral view of the arm. If that is correct, then it looks like there will be a white strip running along the arm to serve as a break / boundry between the gold of the front and blue of the back.

I am guessing the white area is the typical big stripping on the elbow, but it looks like the white material on each side is not the same. Seems odd.

Also another image clearly shows a blue yoke. So this white line up the arms would have to stop at the yoke.

Maybe I'm wrong ... but wouldn't it be a bad idea (from a team standpoint) for a team to have a light (gold) color on one side and a dark (blue) color on the other side?

Say they were playing the Bruins in Boston. Black jerseys vs. dark blue on the back jerseys? I've never seen teams have close colors face each other. There's other examples. That's just one.

That's why I think like I said earlier, dark blue on the shoulders extending down the triceps to the elbows but the rest or majority is gold.

I just can't get my head around the NHL allowing a team to have a 50% dark and 50% light colored jersey.
