I agree, and I like it better with the blue and red added... the gold one not so much.

Most hated? Come on, back this up with some documented facts. Is this back to the million dollar pottie? That was just simple bloody ignorance. Yes, if you want a restaurant on a bridge, you have to provide the infrastructure to support it, and that will raise the cost. It's still a beautiful landmark, and the Sals stepped up when nobody else wanted to. Nothing wrong with the Sals, good basic local diner fare. Go eat your over-priced sushi if it makes you feel superior, a lot of Winnipeg loves the Sals.

I would love to see some Blue, Silver, and Black mockups. I think that will be an great combo of colors.

For people who want to keep saying, "well those are XYZ teams colors", what colors are currently not being used? There isn't an infinite amount of colors out there.

Yes the Rangers use Blue, White, and Red, and the Canadians use Red and White, and the Flames use Red, White and Black,.... Does anyone have a problem telling these teams apart?

Until we see exactly HOW the colors will be used together, we can't say that we are going to look like anyone right now.

The whole concept is a tribute to the RCAF and the Avro Arrow, obviously.

I appreciate the Avro Arrow history and all that, but I don't like that logo. I kind of despise the whole "logo in a circle" look after the Penguins started it for their 3rds and half the NHL followed.

Would be cool if the jerseys were unveiled at the MTS Centre on a few of the players.

Seeing as the restaurant talk wasn't going anywhere positive, combined with the thread topic, let's refocus the attention here back to the new logo and jersey design.

Thank you for this!


The logo needs to be simple like Montreal, Hartford, New Jersey.

Also, the logo needs to be the same on both the home and away jerseys like St. Louis.

I hate how Toronto's logo is white on the home jersey and blue on the road jersey.

Same thing with Calgary's black, white or red flaming c's.

Just because it will be "quite different" doesnt mean the colors wont be the same

Because they have a brilliant marketing idea ongoing. Think about it, if you release the logo and jersey and name and coach etc. all at once then people will talk about all that for 2 weeks then your team fades into oblivion until a big trade, signing or preseason starts.

By staggering the release of this information they've ensured that they will be the talk of the NHL for the entire summer.

I assure you, I did not. My real name is Mark McAllister. I am a designer, but that design isn't mine. Some guy named Ross Taylor posted it on Icethetics. It's just a concept I admire.

From far away, you can't really make out the jet from the maple leaf. It just looks like a maple leaf. I think there is already another team with a maple leaf on the front of their sweaters if I'm not mistaken.

I hope a Canadian leaf/flag is on there somewhere... Canada is behind Winnipeg and the Jets for sure!

Why not make the home jersey mainly red with blue accents?

Really like the color scheme with the gold in there. The red, navy blue, white and gold looks good.
