So does that mean that after next season teams will be allowed to have third jerseys?
I'm not sure that there is a final decision, but the rumor was that alternates would be phased back in 2 years after the new jerseys appear. Alternates were phased in initially by the league, so this wouldn't surprise me. Could be years before Columbus has the need for a 3rd jersey again. I'd like to see the third stay blue, but with red chevrons on the arms and a stylized soldier or cannon on the crest.
A third jersey with confederate grey would be acceptable.
I know it's the NHL and they might not be too keen on specialty jerseys as an event seller like lower leagues but I enjoyed retro/hockey history jerseys like when the Chill wore Checkers, Seals and Owls jerseys. It made be remember my first (and only) Owls game as a kid with my uncle. Again, likely never to happen at the top level but would be cool.
Couldn't be any worse than any logo the Canucks have ever had. Talk about horrible marketing.
I love their stick in a rink logo but can definitely do without the rest. I would love for them to go with that logo full time -- I may even buy a jersey of theirs if that was the case.
The more basic the better IMO. Some logos like our regular CBJ are just way to complicated and that is why pretty much all of the orginal 6 logos have withstood the test of time with a few tweaks here and there. That is one of the biggest reason I love our 3rd...very basic -- looks good blown up or small -- basic colors -- and I think is a good representation of the city of Columbus and easily recognizable.
Simple is better. Broad designs with basic colors are the most powerful. I don't think red is a good idea but I would like to see them do more with the Civil War theme. Maybe a federal eagle for the third in a couple of years?
Too many other teams with red jerseys
Wild (third, and is it godawful)
AND THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME
I'm with others when I hope the third becomes the main.
I also hope they actually sew the names directly into the jerseys instead of that "Name patch" thing. It looks so bush league, and looks exceedingly bad on the away jerseys. I know what GMDM thinks of coaches, but are our players that unimportant, that their names need to be easily removable from the jersey's?
Also the away stripes are starting to get old as well.
I thought the new uni's would be unveiled at the all star game.
The new form-fitting uniforms will be, and apparently the Maple Leafs will also be unveiling their updated logo at the All-Star game (per the article Macster linked). As for the Jackets adopting their current third jersey/logo as their official design, I haven't read anything.
