This is making me mull over which jersey to buy

Though weird, the black pants and helmet can be explained. I like the color on Colorado's third, but I would prefer a logo rather than just the name written diagonally or across it or in any way, shape or form. When they were moving, they didn't have time to have custom pants and such made up, as both of their colors would have required a custom order, so they had to go with a stock color. Those are Black, navy, Bright Red, and royal. All except black would have been a complete mismatch and look pretty awful, except the royal which would have been close, but not quite right. Same with the black helmets and gloves. In fact, for some games at the start they wore the black helmets with the home whites as well as the aways, until the NHL decided it was too confusing for the refs and had them buy a set of white helmets. And I guess it looked good enough, black will go with most anything, so they kept it. Probably a good thing too, as changing cheep buffalo sabres manufacturers has changed the color at least once. As I write this, Minnesota revealed their 3rd and other than the beautiful green color, the jersey sucks in my book. By the way, if you are still working on a concept and would like to share it with Icethetics readers, please send it along. I'll be posting all of the entries on the Concepts page following the Ice Bulls' official unveiling tomorrow. what's wich making the current top sidebar item white on white? When you move your cursor over it, it's dark orange on light orange, which makes much more sense even out of context. I think the Blue Jackets have a great look with what they have. The logo represents the state of Ohio. That being said, I've tried an Avs jersey on NHL 09 Create-a-team with the blue color, and it just looked awkward because we know them as having always worn burgundy since moving from Quebec. But the Nordiques made this color look brilliant on a jersey without a lot of striping and design, and I'm really hoping that's the basis behind this, if it is true. While I liked the original burgundy third, the blue just looks weird. I like the premise, but as that rendering goes, I'm not a fan. Make the 5-stripes into 3 stripes, and add a singular bottom stripe or the mountain again, and it's cool, but as it stands now, no bueno. A cannon-based third jersey would be a good idea though. The Columbus Blue Jackets have an awesome name, drawing from the Civil War, a nice-looking Andrew Ladd jets Jersey and good colors. Yet they have never been able to get a crest right. That should be the first in the concept series is probably ideal.

That is a pretty bad looking jersey,Thanks for the linkage to the Washington Nationals Jersey cheap world. I'm not a fan of the concept due to the resemblance to the Rangers, and like another poster mentioned, it would be great. Of course, we all have to see the real thing first, but I always thought that the Avs should have a blue third. Lighter shade of blue is a very under-used and underrated color in NHL. As an Avs fan, I am probably one of those in the minority who thought that the old all-burgundy third jersey was hideous. I associate the Avalanche with the burgundy color before I do the blue. Then why didn't you turn comments off when doinjg other tournaments like best NHL logo because that definitely swayed voters. I mean I thought it was great when it was burgundy. The Rangers aren't 'afraid' to put any logo on their sweater. Take a look into history a bit. Rangers original 6 teams. End of story. You don't mess with 100 yr. old tradition for the sake of looking cooler. The NHL is all about retro now, so maybe some sort of design paying tribute to Quebec, or even a blue jersey with the foot. I just really think that 3dCheap Brewers Jersey should get some type of approval, I was under the impression the whole reason to get new jerseys was 9a. to clean up the league. If that was the case than Atlanta would of been told to do a whole new jersey. thats stupid why would the leafs wear bugundy, its ot in their colour scheme, but for the avs blue is in the clour scheme and its also the alternate colour so why not use it on the alternate jersey. i like the blue and all but i think they should have gone with the bigfoot logo on the from instead of the plain colorado lettering, Plus, the NHL is going stronger than ever. More and more votes keep coming in on the logo polls and I hope to begin accepting uniform concepts very soon. Designers will be required to work within a specific template as far as submissions but will be completely free to design their jerseys however they'd like. i wasn't a huge fan of the first third jersey however this is a step up, but i have thought the bigfoot would look good on a third since before the original third jersey even came out. And of course, don't forget about Twitter. If you don't have an account, it's no problem. Just keep an eye on the updates in the sidebar right here on the blog. I update it several times a day even when there's nothing new on the blog. When they had their last third jersey, I questioned why it was burgundy. I don't understand teams wearing two jerseys of the same color, since the reason of having an tanner glass jets jersey is to try something different with the look of your team. They can't do that if it's the same color.

I've done some research and asked around among my usual sources and, basically, I can't confirm or deny it. I think the Quebec connection is a bit of a stretch, but he may be right in assuming that, if true, these would probably be nice-looking sweaters. Pretty sure this is it. Chris Creamer has said the jersey will be "light blue with burgundy shoulders and a NYR script" on the sportslogos boards. The diagonal word is a nice reflection of the team's nickname. Imagine if they just used NHL. The blue is better than the burgundy one, as it is a more 'wearable' colour. Would prefer to see a more square shoulder yoke though. Overall very nice and a great departure worthy of being an alternate cheap black bruins jerseys #63.The burgundy ones sure were sharp. That being said, my gut reaction, based on over two years of tracking this type of news, tells me something is fishy. But when isn't it, right? Anyway, it all remains to be seen but I thought I'd at least mention it here because of the coverage its getting. Share your thoughts below on this latest rumor. If in fact this concept does make its way into true form, in no way can I see RBK no the Avalanche going with the four tri-color striped arm bands. If so, why throw black into the equation? it is atrocious, sticking with the Rbk guidelines. I'm all for a nod to the 'diques, but with a black helmet/pants combo on a jersey like that? Stevie Wonder coulda put something better together. I don't understand using the locator on the jerseys that are meant to be worn at home. At least the Rangers have their nickname on their home uniform. It's like how in baseball, most teams wear the nickname at home, but the road jerseys have the city. I know baseball and hockey are different, but it doesn't make sense to me in hockey. You're gonna wear the nhl hockey jerseys cheap at home games, mostly. They already know you're in Colorado. I think I said the same thing about the Stars wearing "Dallas" on their home uniforms. The Nordiques never had black instilled with their uniforms, and other than outlining names, neither have the Avs. If it smells fishy, then it stinks. I'm thinking that an alternate like this is really what's going to happen, and this is just a bad mock-up of the one he's seen. Like the supposed black stripe may actually be dark blue, or something like that and other bits are actually a bit different, so it may actually look a lot better in reality.

They had one of the best Hockey jersey

While I agree with alot of your choices and why. I just can't agree on all of them. I like the Coyotes but I agree that they could have done more, they really dropped the ball on that one. I love the vintage looks of the Iles, Oilers, Sabers and Pens. I agree with most of your rankings except for a few. In my opinion, Ottawa has the worst third Cheap Bruins Jerseys. They had one of the best jerseys when the entered the NHL, but they have ruined a good thing. The wordmark sens ruined the whole jersey. The fact that you have the Bruins jersey 17th out of 18th makes this one of the worst rankings ever. Espcially with teams like Ottawa, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Phoenix and San Jose in front of them. And any Chicago fan needs to stop crying, it's not that hard to turn a red or white jersey into black. That is so 90s. Same with LA. I would of been more impressed if they went back to old purple and gold.The teams that actually went retro should be all up top. Just one thing, no Cheap Flyers Jersey have ever had those tie up collars. A throwback with one would make no sense. And personally, I hate those tie up things anyway.Hockey Jersey

It comes off as modern and sleek rather than stodgy and boring. I'd rather wear the regular home Hockey Jersey cheap with a pair of jeans, but I actually almost prefer the 3rd for a full uniform. I think Toronto's is better then their home and road jerseys which look like pratice jerseys, but how about going really retro and bringing out a green Toronto St. Pats jersey? I love the Coyotes jersey until they put it on with the rest of the uniform. The red helmets, pants and gloves just don't go with the jersey. For someone walking down the street wearing the jersey it is awesome. I would have raised St. Louis higher i really like the choice of blue. LA's is so boring.. its almost as bad as the Thrashers or Stars. the leafs just threw one out there in my opinion. Philly's is nice and probably should have gotten more mid of the pack. The Canucks, I agree should have gone with green. that'd look mint. i think the reason why toronto did a white jersey is because thats the one they used to wear at home before teams started to wear the dark jerseys at home. they wanted to bring backk an old tradition. I hate the "Bolts" and the"Sens" those to me are the worst choices. the colours on the sens is really nice, but the word is just awful... the bolts again great colour scheme but its like they both called in the front design. Finally there are the sharks. i like this, though i do think its missing something, the shark is just kinda out there, it needs something. Detroit has never had a tie-up. There is plenty of history that doesn't include tie-ups. Personally, i'm not a fan. I don't see why they seem to be a staple of "retro" or third nhl black ice jerseys. At least its not a throwback like every other one up there. I thought this website was free of traditional jersey favoritism and more in favor of artistic quality, but I guess not and it disappoints me. I'm not surprised though.

The Sabres jersey is awesome. I don't mind the sliver and gold striping, I think it improves the jersey. Like you said the sliver piping could go, but it is not the worst thing. I would also dump the front numbers. They don't seem to fit because the logo is so big on the front. They work on the slug jerseys because the logo is smaller. I don't understand why you'd "definitely put a tie-up on an Original Six jersey". The first tie-ups were worn by the Canadiens back in the 1941-42 season. 15 years after each of the original 6 franchaises had started. The next team to join them was the Rangers in 1950-51. Having just gotten back from the Garden, I must comment on the Bruins' 3rds. Taken standalone, as a jersey, they're not terribly exciting. But with the black socks, the whole kit and kaboodle looks amazing. And finally Dallas' might not be the best third jersey, but it is better then their last third jersey. Chicago then added tie-ups in 1955-56, and Toronto in 58-59. The Bruins did not don a jersey with a tie-up until 1967, and by then, the NHL also included the California Seals, L.A. Kings, Minnesota North Stars, Philidelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and St. Louis Blues. First of all, Your rankings suck. Philadelphia 12? And don't give me this "tie up " front. The Flyers never wore a tie up jersey so why would they put that in their retro 3rd jersey? And to put Tampa ahead of anyone? Give me a break "Bolts". Vancouver has the same exact nhl hockey jerseys cheap now, all they did was switch a logo.
