Jerseys for next season

Maybe its just me, but would anyone else go for the idea of ditching the Black C, and using our 3rd as the home jersey? The Black C was great before they did the reebok edge jerseys.

I'm confused maybe. What does our 3rd look like? Is it the vintage jersey?

All the current jersey's are ugly imo, cept for Philly's which for some reason I love. Just go back to the '04 ones, and the 3rd one would be nice too.

As the shoulder patches, yes. Not as a main logo


I like the jerseys the way they are. Hate teams that change it up too often in sports, like them oilers

This. I'm happy with what we have. I don't want to make the Retro/3rd's our home jersey's just because it's becoming such a common thing to do in the NHL, and it honestly kind of bugs me because it takes away from the nostalgia of the retro's, imho.

For me this is a definite nope. I love our current home jerseys. I know a lot of people don't though. They're not perfect but I just think they're really badass unlike our 3rds(and I do like our 3rds as well.) They would be better if they ditched the vertical piping though... I cannot think of a single jersey where that reebok piping thing works.

Actually I could mention that I HATE our current aways, they are a total mess, perhaps we could use a retro 80's away jersey and sometimes use it for home games like the Wings do.

This team badly needs a new look. Enough with the "make the 89 jersey our home jersey" and "make the 04 jersey our home jersey" talk. It's embarassing. This city lacks some serious creativity in the jersey department. We haven't had a new look since the flaming horse ffs. I mean, we couldn't even think of anything for our shoulder patches so we went with the AB/CAN flags! Like wtf!? Is that the best we can do? Geezus.

Why switch something that doesn't need to be. I am fine with our Jerseys, switching them every so years is just stupid. We will end up being like the Canucks, a history of horrible jerseys and a new logo every damn season.

We do need a new look eventually but I didn't say we should switch them. But if we're going to go with new jerseys, lets look at something new. The old jerseys are what they are - OLD.

Frankly I still like the black C home jerseys. But the shoulder patches are ridiculous. Well not so much the CAN flag, but the AB flag just looks stupid imo.

If we go with new jerseys then we should go with something completely new. None of this switching old jerseys ********.

But the vintage ones are among the best jerseys in hockey, why mess with them.

That's a matter of opinion. I like them but if we hadn't won the cup in those jerseys believe me nobody would be holding onto them like grim death. It's time to move on.

Ya definitely does, but I don't know what more you could do with are logo until it just look ridiculous. Maybe add a couple more flames coming from it

I think so too, when I first saw it I almost bought one just to burn it. Why the hell would a blue flag go on a red jersey?

The modern color scheme is just fine imo. The unis just need to be cleaned up a bit, that vertical striping has to go. Especially with the road jerseys not even matching the pants.

The away socks that look like the German flag have to go.

The AB flag and Canada flag should be replaced with the flaming horses. I don't know why those were abandoned (as shoulder patches) anyways

Throwback jersey should stay as the alternate third. They look great, but teams making old jerseys their regulars are lame. If they are going to switch out a jersey, replace the current aways with vintage aways, those were awesome

I like them too, I guess it does look a little out of place on a jersey but I'd rather have them than the horse.

I figure, since we're the only NHL hockey team in Alberta, why is it such a bad idea to put a flag on the jersey to represent the province?

I see what you did there.

I hated the flags at first, but they've kind of grown on me. Ultimately I'd prefer the horse head, but the AB and CAN flags on the jerseys don't bother me at all anymore.
