Aprons were terrible and a reflection to a decade of darkness for this franchise. Having the more classic look restores a much better looking jersey and perhaps some faith in some Avaholics (including myself)

Dater is feeling extra feisty in this sequence.

Not that I've used it, but my first degree was in mass communication, and I had a sports media scholarship with it, and I wouldn't have used such a large block quote like that (that Boulding seemed to take issue with)...but I guess he at least credited the Avs' website with it (when I've legitimately seen people fail to do so in real life when I did that stuff back in college).

Seemed a bit pedantic to basically turn it around and point out that it's not that much different than posting a video where a reporter asks all the questions (for their story) and gets the answers, while the Team Social Media guy just stands and records to post later. The inherent comparison is something I would agree is similar, but I'm of the opinion that's a bit more "common practice" (although I guess a point of contention could be in situation where a reporter gets some good quotes but the team's social media guy posts the video before the reporter can capitalize on their "good scoop") when it comes to videos being posted on the team site, and in reality Dater should've just said the equivalent of "mea cupla" and remembered to trim it down next time.

IMO... don't bite the hand that feeds. Dater should have done a better job with his article and Boulding is in the right for calling it out. Dater has somewhat of a point on the video, but that is common practice for every sports team... and that shouldn't be his only source of information on an article. If it is, he isn't doing his job properly.

I felt the same way as Boulding when I saw Dater's article since I read the Avs'/NHL article on the jerseys earlier. I'm not in journalism or communications and it made me feel squirmy.

I love this jersey even more than the 90's jerseys. They look a lot cleaner and sexier than those ones. I have zero complaints about this jersey even though there is no piping.

I can't wait to get a Compher jersey and wear it around Michigan lol. Nothing like repping an Avs sweater with the former Captain of UofM hockey on it. The question will be how long I have to wait before someone gets a hold of legit authentics.

Do you use this same logic for the O6 teams? Or Pittsburgh? Forever in the 50s/90s.

Some people just can't be pleased.

Feel the same as everyone else, very happy with these. The cutout photos on white blowout the colors and don't look as good as the HQ photos though.

I wonder if since they tweaked the C on the nameplate a bit, they'll change the captains C on the front too?

Not this coming season.

I was hoping they might mothball the old logo for a while, use it as a shoulder patch for their C's, but going back to the classics works for me.

Exactly! No one ever accused the Maple Leafs of being stuck in the 30s. If a look fits your team does it really matter what era it's from? The whole stuck in the 90s thing is a really weak argument. But, if it provides an excuse to complain about something...

The only team stuck in the 90's is the Preds and their 1993 era, R 'n' R part II, "Hey, you suck" chant

I don't really care all that much. It looks nice, but really, to my eye the changes are superficial.

Like if they went full triangle logo or C there wouldn't be complaints, come on let's be real here.

There's a huge difference between being an original 6 team and one that evolved decades later as far as heritage goes.

Well, the Sharks will be stuck in the '90s forever (unless they change from teal, which they won't), but it's kind of a badge of honor for them.

True enough.

Whatever, no reason to fight. Either way we got a major upgrade. It does look a bit brighter colours but maybe that's just the screens contrast, Avs jerseys are notorious for varying in bright/dark depending on the website.

The lighting in that photo doesn't help either. I'm sure it will look fine in person or on the tV.

... these issues then exacerbate one another because the piping that is unnecessarily breaking up the burgundy could have been used as the simple border between the burgundy and the blue - having the piping sitting in no man's land should have never even been presented as an option. It's a bad aesthetic. That's a basic design error that was never addressed (until now).

I want to see more photos of the full jersey (with the new numbering and lettering) as well as the road before I make a full assessment, but my first impression is overall pretty favorable. Yes, it's a rehash of an old design - but that design at least worked, which you can't say about the Reebok Edge mess we've had for the last decade.
Well worded and my thoughts exactly. I wish they had just gone with the original jerseys completely (black and white separating the burgundy/blue) but whatever, I will take this.
