They had 5 or so SnapBack hats with just the C logo pretty sharp! Two shirts and two hoodies both of those were burgundy and navy

Wow. I love the new logo with that small triangle removed. Really, really cool.

had to work outta the downtown office today, so I stopped at the arena on my lunch. Not a whole lot new stuff, they did have more/different 20th anniversary gear though. They had a ton of boxes all over that were still sealed so I expect lotsa new stuff Thursday.

I think this concept is missing shoulder logos in a bad way and I'd still like to see perhaps some sort of homage in the striping to mountain peaks a la the pre-edge Avs jerseys but it looks pretty good.

I was trying to do the exact same thing but can't photoshop worth a ****. Make that mountain a big A. I think it looks a lot better as well. I would try and make the bottom a touch more pronounced as well. Make it come down a little further to make the A show up clearly. Looks better though.

btw, just in case someone wants to play around like I did with my avatar, the closest "free" font I have found that has the Colorado 'C' in it is "Lulo Clean One Bold" (in OTF file format)

I'm probably alone in this but I'm definitely more attached to the Avalanche colours than the Avalanche logo... took a stab at our new shoulder-badge logo to make it more "main logo"-esque and kept the steel blue rather than the new navy.

Way better. But still not as good as potential revamp of current uniform without apron striping and added shoulder/arm striping to separate burgundy and blue or the old pre 2007 uniforms. And obviously powder blue > navy blue, at least in combo with burgundy.

It's like a 12 step program where you subtly undo everything until you are back at step one.

The "foot" has been retired...not sure why people believe they'll bring it back all of the sudden.

The new alternate looks nice, the new "C" logo looks nice, it's not a bad thing to update some of the look.

Yep. I'm over the foot. And the new 3rd doesn't need adjustments.

That looks really good. I'd like to see it with the C instead of the foot logo.

Jerseys looked fantastic. I wonder if this means they're going to ditch the current blue on the regular uniform in favor of the dark blue of the thirds? I kinda hope that doesn't happen, but I wonder if it will.

Agreed. They remind me of the Sabres' uni from far away, but the white shoulders provide some nice seperation. Absolutely love the dark blue equipment.

The jersey looks better in action than it does in my hand. A huge A+ to the design team on this.

I watched part of the game with friends who aren't Colorado fans or really hockey fans and they all said it was ugly.

The logo is crap, the white on the shoulders looks really bad on ice and the blue is way to dark.

Basically this looks okay in pictures but is terrible when watching on TV.

That's definitely a minority opinion on here. Naturally you're entitled to it. Personally I like the uniform.
