The fact that they had to ask for an extension again is maybe the most interesting part to me. They've been working on this in various forms for several years and had basically the entire locked out period to focus on it. It feels like they must've gotten very deep in the process (likely completely changing colors to something brand new) and then got cold feet at the last moment and scrapped what they had, or made drastic changes.

I think that could be right. I was emailing back and forth with Mr.Gagliardi a couple months ago - basically trying to represent the feeling of most of us on here. Maybe it actually did something?

You should've thrown in a few of the creations we've come up with here!

Imagine the frenzy on this board if one of the designs in this thread ends up being the winner.

Tried to keep themselves busy during the lockout so they spent a lot of time looking at colors.

I did send him a piece I did up on our uniforms and the potential change. I included about 5 different uni concepts I've come across on the net. He did (or at least he said he did) forward it to his people too. Seemed sincere.

Perhaps we'll be seeing the jerseys sooner than the summer..

Quote:
"We're obviously very sensitive to what the fans think, from everything from the goal song to the uniforms and the logos," said Lites, when asked about the fan reaction. "We anticipate having this thing, in the next two weeks, wrapped up and figured out. Maybe a little longer than that. We'll see a prototype of that which we've selected as the look, with the color match and the changes we've made to the crest after the last go around. We should see that in a week and hopefully, in the next month, we'll be able to show it to the world."

That's definitely a different approach than most teams take. It's more like the Lightning who showed their redesign off early and then listened to fan feedback which ultimately resulted in them adding black back into their color scheme.

Think it has more to do with marketing scheme if they do that. Get these jerseys and the new look out there as soon as possible and start building this thing up again.

True, but that means they must've abandoned all hope of selling any more of the current sweaters.

I hadn't thought seriously about it, but I was kind of expecting a draft day reveal. Glad to know we'll see it much sooner.

Knowing there's a new jersey on the way, if I wanted a jersey I would just wait for the new ones to come out...especially knowing they should be much better looking than the current ones.

Yeah but again how many casual fans are aware of that? The first time a lot of them are going to know changes are in the works will be when the Stars unveil the prototype and it makes the local news etc.

I already know mine will be a 14 with the name Benn on it. I'd consider a Goose or Dillon/Oleksiak also.
