Simplification and color should be the hallmark of good jersey

The Boston Bruins are hard at work right now deciding what they'll wear when they take to the frozen pond against the Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park this January. The Boston Globe had some interesting notes regarding the discussions and a few quotes worth repeating. No one has hit it as big as the Penguins with an alternate Cheap Bruins jersey. I think the Chicago Blackhawks are hoping to grab a little piece of their success by turning their Winter Classic uniforms into an alternate for the upcoming season. You can find the full article by Fluto Shinzawa here or read it with the Icethetics commentary that follows. The mustard yellow could work in the context of the Winter Classic but I say they go with something out of the ordinary. Brown is definitely out of the ordinary. I also think that some version of the logo currently seen on the third jersey should not be out of the question. After all, it too is based on the Bs' logo history. It needs to stand out from the Bruins' current home and road sweaters, which are widely considered to be among the best in the league right now. Hmmm, I don't think it would have been removed for the criticism of the past jerseys, as those were part of the former Disney Ownership era, something I believe the new look ducks are trying to distance themselves from. That being said, it needs to be better than or on level with these. That would mean that the only possible explanation is that management didn't like his inviting of people sending in third Cheap Lightning NHL Jersey concepts, maybe in the fear that someone would send something close to what is actually planned: they don't want someone claiming their design was used and therefore asking for compensation? A disappointing design will take a lot of the steam out overall feel of the game.

I want to see one photoshopped to look like a MLB Jersey Cheap, seeing as they're in Fenway an all. Or maybe Celtics colors? Not that I'm totally against the Brown jerseys. Those were pretty sweet too. I'm all for that, or their 75th anniversary jerseys, with a different logo. what about the flyers? i heard word that they would be making a white version to counteract their current third, and those two jerseys in turn would become the team's everyday jerseys. any truth to that? Not a thing, really. I've been getting emails a lot this week asking if I know what the Bruins and Flyers will be wearing at Fenway Park. At this point, no decision has been made public, if one has even been made. Here's my opinion on that: Last year's Winter Classic made many think that the New Year's Day jerseys have to be more than just special, that they have to be drastically different. But look at Pittsburgh and Buffalo in 2008. The Penguins and Sabres went back to the '70s. The Blackhawks and Red Wings have an even longer past and were therefore able to dig even deeper. But this notion that the Flyers should wear Quakers uniforms simply because they had the same colors or were based in the same city makes no sense. They were two completely separate franchises. It's like the Wild wearing North Stars throwbacks. In each case, these teams have simply gone back into their own history for a throwback uniform they haven't worn in a while. That aside, the second question I keep getting is "What do you think they'll be wearing?" That usually comes along with a concept somehow incorporating the Philadelphia Quakers. As for the B's, I'd love it if they found a brown jersey to go with, or even a yellow one. However, all signs point to yet another black ricky vaughn jersey for sale for the Bruins, so I'm at least hoping for the big B rather than the spoked one. Perhaps Adam has an inside scoop and his mock-up is one already being discussed? Good reason for them to pull it.

On the topic of the NHL logo ad, I had already read the whole article before it had been removed. I don't know what they're trying to do, or the reason why they took it down, but I think we can all anticipate a Canucks Jerseys on sale by the Ducks, whenever they do come out with one. technically the Oilers logo is incorrect and old as well. As can be seen on their web site redesign they are still using the copper oil drop with the red circle around the logo as the team logo and not the 80's logo. Interesting you talk about the Quakers. The New York Rangers adapted the name as their farm team at one point and now, the team is actually in the NHL now. I remember talking about those days when I was backing up. A lot of interesting stories. It's like waking up from a dream and trying to remember it. Yet the harder you grasp for details the scarcer they become. A mystery has been brewing in Anaheim. A third jersey mystery. I can't claim to solve it but I will present all of the facts I am aware of. That scathing review at the beginning is a little surprising coming from someone who works in the department whose job it is to make the team look good. Perhaps that's the reason the entry was removed. Or perhaps not. He did liken the 1995 third jersey to New Coke after all. As for the last part, I removed his email address so you guys don't bug him with concepts that, despite what he's written there, will likely never be posted on his blog. Instead, if you're so inclined, email them to me and I may post them here or on Twitter. Since I've posted the article in its entirety, I think to comment further on it would simply be redundant. You know what I think. Instead, I want to know what you guys think. First, of the content of the article and second, its swift removal from the Ducks' web site. And is there some type of conspiracy at work here to stifle any third Cheap NFL Jersey news coming out of Anaheim? If this guy was an independent, he could write about whatever he'd like, but if he's hired to promote the organization, he doesn't have that freedom to publicly criticize his employers on their own Web site. And below is a screenshot of Brady's blog before the bizarre disappearance just in case you want proof.

Makes them look like NHL jerseys

At that time the Wild had barely played a season but team management was already looking into the possibility of a third nhl black ice jerseys. It would be 2003 before the Wild actually debuted one, but it was on their radar even then. And if you look at image in the linked gallery, it's nearly the same design but with the green and wheat swapped and without the alternate shoulder logo. Try to imagine the red swapped with green. Could we be looking at an earlier version of the Wild's upcoming third jersey. I'm not sure about this jersey. It looks a little too much like a baseball uniform to me. Why not just bring back the solid green former primary jerseys? Those would be badass, plus since 2007 there has been a lack of green in the NHL. And if so, what do you think. Does the script suit the classic look Minnesota strives for. One thing I want to make note of that makes me question whether these are legitimate prototypes. If you look closely at the shoulder patches on both of these designs, the logos are upside down. A simple mistake for a design firm on unofficial artwork. Perhaps, but it's worth pointing out anyway. Or does it fall flat and ruin the club's aesthetic. Being a loyal Wild fan, I really don't know what to think about them. Image looks really sharp, but I don't know if its really a proHockey Jersey cheap. I think it looks too collegiate personally. But who knows, we will all find out in September.

I think Jersey is basically exactly the same thing they've had in the past, plus green instead of the wheat color. That being said, having seen teams like the Oilers, Islanders, Canucks, Bruins, and Maple Leafs all going to throwback/past years uniforms for their new alternate, I think a green version is exactly what we're gonna see. They seriously need to produce a green claude giroux black ice premier. Wild uniforms have always looked like they belonged on a roller-hockey rink. To me the conversation should not be happening because we should be called the Minnesota Blue Oxen. The color-spectrum of green is seriously underused in today's NHL since the Stars apparently have become afraid of their own team colors, let alone their logo. Way too much blue and red going on in the league, not enough green. Wild, make it happen. The only other team that uses any shade of green in any capacity other than the Stars and the Wild is Vancouver, who have it as a secondary trim color. Then we mix in some classic blue and blue using Maine's jerseys as a staring point and look out Stanley Cup! they look like they`re from the fifties, the original from when they entered the league, home and away look much nicer. And why not wear white at home again. The Flyers also added winger Ian Laperriere who's known more for penalty minutes than anything else. Though it's not clear in this picture, Laperriere will wear nhl jerseys. He debuted with the St. Louis Blues in 1994 with No. 22 on his back, keeping it during a brief stint with the Rangers in 1995 and during his nine-season tenure with the Kings. hat Senators third hunter pence cream jersey has never looked better... from the back. God, I can't stand the front. Y'all know why. Also, Kovalev looks a bit like Bouwmeester to me.

Brian Boucher is actually returning to the club that drafted him in 1995 and will return to the No. 33 he first wore as a rookie in 1999. Since leaving for Phoenix in 2002, Boucher has logged a lot of miles. Does anyone know why the leafs haven't done any press conferences like this yet? Are they just waiting until they can do one big one, or do they just not feel the need since they get enough publicity as it is? He managed to keep his number there and for three games in Calgary, I dont know if you cover the Central hockey league. but recently they introduced two new teams. the missouri mavericks and allen americans. i dont think either team has introduced blake wheeler jersey winnipeg yet but both have logos. also in the international hockey league they introduced two new teams. but lost it in 2006 to Adrian Aucoin in Chicago and then Fredrik Modin in Columbus, where he donned No. 31 and No. 35, respectively. He finally got it back with San Jose two years ago. one which you have covered, the other new team is the Dayton Gems which have unveiled a logo but no jersey. and in the sphl you have been following the pensacola ice flyers logo competition. the sphl also welcomed the mississippi surge to the league. the team has no NHL Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey yet but a nice logo. the louisiana ice gators resurfaced in the sphl and will begin play this season.

The video was the Sabres Hockey Jersey

I'm sure there will be more to come but any additional news will get its own post. And speaking of new posts, tomorrow is Friday the 13th so how could I not try to scare you a little bit? Stay tuned for a Freak Out Friday of some sort. I'm not a big fan of pink in general, but for a one-time thing, I think it looks quite good in moderated amounts, like the Reign. I actually think that without the shin-ribbons it'd be a Cheap NHL Sabres jerseyfor alternate use occasionally. The solid pink from the Bulls doesn't cut it for me though. I realize it's for a good cause and all that, but almost completely pink is a little too much for me. Is there not a way to honor breast cancer with all we have, without looking like 'pansies on ice'? When is the NFL going to sport pink uni's and helmets? wearing pink is different entirely if its for a good cause. i personally don't think they look like "pansies on ice". they're doing it for a good cause and i see nothing wrong with that. now if you think the NHL is immune to that stripy nonsense. The following night, Montreal Canadiens stepped out against the Boston Bruins wearing something that went out of style nearly 100 years ago. Sadly the Wings did lose that night, the players hated them along with the fans. The Pups were messing with out guys, but their jerseys look ugly as well with the baby blue and whatever that logo is supposed to be. They did this again this year in the NHL and we won this time, but the Cheap nhl hockey jersey still sucked.

As long as there are trying to check one another through the glass its hard to call them pansies. And Ron, those scratch and sniff patterns have already been put to use on all the new NHL uniforms. If you scratch the Reebok logo it smells like money. you say the goalie pads looking goofy? In action it looked like the laundry guys accidentally mixed a few red socks in with the laundry and the team had to either skate naked or in the pink washed home MLB Boston Red Sox Jersey. I totally wish I was kidding. The Wings actually took the ice against the Bloomington PrairieThunder looking like this. I think I need to set up a new section of Icethetics. Worst. Game-worn jerseys. Coming soon. on that same night, the NHL was humiliating itself as well when for no apparent reason the team from Las Vegas decided to stick its nose into the issues with the Illinois governor nearly a continent away. I told you about this last month and posted mock-ups of the specialty jerseys for Rod Blagojevich Night. HockeyLister: its the jersey that the Habs work in like 1913-14 or something like that. with it being the centennial year they are wearing throwbacks for certain games. a fun fact about those jerseys though: during the time the Habs were wearing those, the original Ottawa Senators were wearing similar jerseys. well Ottawa complained to the League about it and how they cant tell whos who when they play each other and how its a rip off, etc. well the League said that when Ottawa and Montreal play one another, Montreal must wear a different jersey. the prison jerseys remind me of a retarded hockey version of Longest Yard. the black and white jerseys to look similar to the Blackhawks original jerseys from the 20's. the Jersey the arose from this was the red MLB Phillies Jersey design that is currently worn in Montreal.

The problem with the habs unis are the thinness of the stripes combined with the colors. in black and white, the sweaters don't look bad. the senators barber pole doesn't look bad, but those. I hate corporate advertising on philadelphia flyers jersey Jaromir Jagr, but at least Kalamazoo went all out and did the look correctly. as for the wranglers...is it bad that i actually like the monochrome stripes in a very old school way? I would not be opposed to a minor league team wearing something like that full time. those are hard on the eyes, with the exception of the solid blue box for the back numbers, which were surprisingly easy to read. But I want to see more pictures of that yellow ice. I've played on rinks where the creases were yellow but an entirely yellow rink sounds disgusting. Isn't there a US college that plays on a blue football field? Boise State I think. It would be so weird playing on a ice surface that isn't white. I figured the Mexican Primera soccer league was the worst, but this McDonald's crap takes the win by far and away. But seriously, I watched them play in them on TV that day, from afar, they look like Leafs Players in Purple and white with a hint of red. I thought the Habs' jerseys were fine at first, until I tried to watch them moving on the screen. At that point my eyes twisted in on themselves and ripped a hole in time and space, allowing me to travel back to 1912 and slap the guy who designed those sweaters. This is probably the only way you see a Maple Leaf on a Cheap Hockey Jersey today, wear a throwback from before the Toronto team was known as the Leafs.
