Those jerseys are perfect ... for a Big 10 school.


The eye looks meaner. That's really the only thing I like about this new logo. It just looks flat and boring.

I like the color yellow, it's one of my favorites, it's sunny and happy. But not on this jersey. Maybe if I see it in person, but right now I don't like it all.

So in 2 years are we going to have another uniform change?

Plus the current primary logo has something like 8-9 colors in it which makes cost a ton more than making a three colored logo too.
So, unique like Buffalo and St. Louis?

It kind of seems like the shoulder patch is starting to become the new thing. Like the tie-ups were a few years ago, teams seem to be putting patches that reflect the identity/location/heritage of the team's city, rather than just an alternate logo. I like that.

Yellow is the main color and blue is the secondary... StL and Buf are the opposite. Nobody else is yellow in their main color and I think it will look good on the ice and on tv. I'm liking them; but as a EX-Blues fan that turncoated to the Preds in '98, the colors are somewhat comfortable to what I had growing up in the '80s. Plus it seems that hockey fans really on't like their cheese moved!!!

I think that was just the Preds making the statement for political reasons. These most definitely are the new jerseys.

Well, look at it this way, folks: We have had something Predator-related to talk about until draft fever ensues. And we will know soon enough if this is the real design and the yellow looks bad, etc.

At first glance I didn't really like them but they are both already growing on me. I think they could both look a little better once in a game situation but we'll have to wait and see. I kinda wish they would have put a little more blue up around the shoulders on the yellow though. Feel like it would have made it look a little meaner.

OTF poll as of right now shows 380 votes in favor and 438 against the new look. Obviously not a scientific poll but that can't be the initial reaction the organization was looking for....particularly since the people voting are the ones most likely to buy/not buy.

Love the whites.

I like the yellow home, but like everyone else, can do away with the piping.

I love it that we'll actually have a rather unique color scheme in the league. No red or blue like about 25 other teams. Yellow/Gold is awesome and looks great with the black.

The day they sign Weber, I'm ordering a #6 jersey.

I think people are generally not in favor of change. I think it'll grow on people. The previous home and aways were a mess, the mustards were an abomination (even though I've got one in my closet). The only decent jersey we had were the blue thirds, and they are too like the TMLs.

I predict it'll look alot better on the ice rather than held up by a hanger.

That is what I am thinking. Whoever shopped that onto Weber sold it for me. I didnt like them before that.

Not a bad look for you guys although I don't understand the piping? Teams are slowly and thankfully moving away form that lame Reebok "innovation".

Ok I think I'm blind. The thread says "confirmed with link", but the only link I saw when I just scrolled through all four pages was a link saying these aren't the new jerseys, but they are most likely practice jerseys (which I don't believe. too much going on for them to be practice jerseys.) What am I missing?

imo the lighting on the gold jersey is completely off. It will look better when it is not a crappy cell phone picture and actually in person/on tv I think.

I agree; the picture with the away jersey and they are holding the home jersey looks better than just the home jersey. The color looks more like the towels. (did you guys get that)?

A friend of mine who is from Canada, but strangely enough hates hockey, says that the yellow one is "prettier" than the old home jerseys FWIW

I like the Sweaters you had last year better. I even liked the mustard sweaters as they we unique. This doesn't work for me. It's not bad, but that colour combination has been doesn't so much in hockey over the years.

In hindsight, painting over all of the yellow in the arena was a bad idea.
