Or so I would think. In the end it's a very light color and I don't think it would work well with this set.

Looks like they have the blue outline around the numbers on the sleeves

I like it more with the silver. It's just a cleaner look. Like I said, I'll want to see it with names/numbers to be sure.

Ya I kinda agree with you, the blue definately pops more but it just seems off. Maybe if it had a thin silver strip separating the two colors it might look better

Hate the burgundy/blue outline on the arm numbers, should be silver.

Yeah, same. The silver does look sharper. However a thin stripe of blue on the outside along with the silver stripe would be nice I think. Like the blue strip touching the silver, not the burgundy.

Yeah, like on the original jerseys. Its pretty much only gripe i have with these new jerseys, i think the striping between blue and red would have been better if kept like on the originals - white and black on homes and silver and blue on aways.

It still okay as it is though. Looking forward to see it on draft now.

Agreed. I think they'll look really sharp on the ice.

Same for Nashville, at first I was iffy, but I think when they're on the ice it'll look good.

I think both look pretty good, just a matter of preference.

I was hoping from the title of the thread that this was about the state.

I like the silver better than the blue...but I understand it's a personal choice.

I will say this, I am MUCH more likely to buy some t-shirts, hats, etc with the AVs retaining their real logo than I would if they had moved to that stupid "C" thing. I get it...folks in Colorado like it. Here's the thing though...the team sucks...change the logo won't correct it...all it does it makes it much easier for fans outside of Colorado to just say **** it and walk away. It's bad enough that we are cheering for laundry at this point after having watched Stastny and ROR run out of town by incompetent management. You start ****ing with the laundry and then there is nothing left to cheer for.

If the thirds come back (and they'd better) I imagine I'll get one of each eventually.

Now I gotta decide what name to get on the back. So much uncertainty surrounding the roster, the safe bet is of course, Rantanen, but I have for the most part opted for defensemen. Guess we'll see.

Definitely prefer the silver, it always bothered me on the edge jersey where the burgundy and blue touched.

Gotta get me a home Zadorov once he signs. I can't do white, I know I'll spill something on it.

Nah, they still got a few years on their sentence before they get released from the State Penitentiary.

On topic: People complain about the burgundy and blue running together if they touch, but don't have an issue with the silver and white?

Best of both worlds, turn the half of the silver stripe that touches white to a blue stripe. Keep the side touching burgundy the same silver.
