Hi, everyone. We're all aware the Senators have never exactly had the kind of classic, timeless jersey designs that such teams as the Red Wings, Blackhawks, Maple Leafs, Canucks, Oilers and Flames have had throughout the years. I decided to do a quick jersey redesign with hopes that the public will support a more traditional, "retro" look that draws upon the team's history while also being refreshingly new. Hopefully you'll enjoy these concepts.
I wanted to incorporate elements of the pre-Edge Senators jerseys with the Jacob Barrette concept to form a familiar, yet "retro" look for the team. There are horizontal stripes across the torso similar to the ones in Barrette's design, and I've kept the striping fairly simple to give it the clean, classic look that most of the Canadian teams' jerseys have.
The home jersey (the red) looks a bit like the home jersey the Senators wore before the RBK switch but replaces the swirly horizontal line with more conventional striping. The away jersey is a color swap of the home jersey. Notice how the white in the stripe wraps around the logo (and how I've added the spiky "rear" part of the helmet back to the logo -- it had been removed from the back of the helmet in the logo redesign, for some reason).
The black alternate omits the white striping to hark back to the dark uniforms the Senators wore when they first re-entered the league in 1992.
I'm not a fan of the new 2D logo, and I don't think your modification can salvage my opinion of it.
As for the jerseys themselves, I'm not a fan of the stripe through the chest like that. I just think that the barberpole should be kept to a single, third/heritage jersey, and not dominate a jersey set. The sleeve striping is good. I would change the black jersey, however, so the white doesn't occupy the bottom of the jersey... I think it'd look out of place against black pants, and instead a solid white stripe would look nicer.
That's just my opinion though.

1. The chest logo and shoulder patches should be smaller.
2. I would try getting rid of the thin white line, perhaps going from black straight to the gold trim then the red.
3. Make the red portion at the bottom of the jersey more prominent.
Also, and this is just my opinion, I prefer straight lines at the bottom of the EDGE jerseys as opposed to trying to follow the curves at the bottom.
