In a nutshell, I expected this. It's a great move. Only better one would be to make the eggplant jersey the alternate, am I right? Or to bring the Mighty look back full time. In regards to matching their identity though, this was the best move in my opinion. The orange looks beautiful and the black being the accent color really makes it pop out. As always, not really a fan of that bronze-goldish color but to me everything else about it looks great. If I don't get an actual Mighty Ducks throwback jersey soon I'll think about getting that jersey. Hey, it might arrive at my house before my O'Reilly jersey...that I bought one month ago and it still hasn't shipped!!!!
Alright. That word I think is a good way to describe the jersey. It's alright. It's really simple and I initially thought it was going to be the Stadium Series jersey...and those apparently 'leaked' today to..and woah...if those are real I will seriously not watch the game. That's how ugly they look. This jersey though sadly, is the best looking jersey Colorado has and it's a shame too. Not saying it's bad, it's a good alternate for the most part, but damn, just going back to their originals would be such a fantastic idea. Granted I would like to see a new great design but it's such an easy decision to go back or at least adapt that old design into a new one. I do really like the white yolk, and I'm always a fan of the blue so...good job.
Nashville unveiled a gold helmet for a select few games. I'll have to see for certain during a game to see if I like them. I'm giving them a chance. On their own the gold looks nice and classy. I'm trying to picture it on players and I don't see it being a problem, but for me I'll just wait and see. Anything else? Because I really don't even want to speak about the supposed Stadium Series jerseys. So let's just move on to the post. Hopefully the NHL and Reebok see the reaction of the fans and decide to scrap the idea and then ask HJC to host a contest for it. That would be my decision at least. Do you agree? Hey Ryan, would you like to see that happen?

This Anaheim Ducks Concept by Zachary E. does not have a name on it. Zach, make sure you ID your concepts so people know who made it! If you didn't name it on your file then no one would ever know. This jersey is pretty similar to the actual alternate. In a way. The slanted striping to fit the old jerseys and adding a black yoke (something that I think would have made the jerseys look better). It doesn't look bad. Striping is okay. Sometimes I would dislike the fact that the hem striping is slanted but the arm striping is straight but I don't mind it here. Maybe make the yoke squared off or adding something else to it. Just looks a bit plain. Nice job though. Pretty close to the actual real design, Zach!
That's it for me today. Hope all that are reading liked today's post. Would like to hear all the opinions about the leaks today and the concepts! Spend a couple of minutes in the comments and let us know! Can't wait to see the discussions later!
