I'm sure you all saw yesterday, as they were discussed here on the blog. Since the blog covered it already I won't get too into it so I'll keep it simple...The new alternate jerseys.
Anaheim's alleged new alternate jersey, is pretty neat. I love that the Mighty Duck logo is back, but I think way too much bronze is used. The orange and bronze just don't look that good together... At least in my opinion. And who knows, maybe it's just the mockup. Maybe once we see the real thing I'll come around. Plus I kind of hope the OC logo is actually used on the shoulders.
The other alternate jersey that was reported yesterday was the Colorado Avalanche's. A few weeks ago this design got out there but it was believed to be the Stadium Series jersey. Now we know that's not the case and we don't have to worry about having boring Stadium Series jerseys... um... more on the Stadium Series.... but back to this jersey. At first I hated it. And I think that's because it's not what I was expecting. But the more I look at it, it's starting to grow on me. It's definitely simple. But isn't that what we've all been wanting? Finally, a jersey with no piping. The new Rockies/Avs/Colorado Flag logo is kind of neat. I really like the new font too.
Now... speaking of Stadium Series jerseys... Chris Creamer of Chris Creamer's SportsLogos posted some mockups of what he believes the Stadium Series jerseys are this year. He mentions that these are only mockups based on text descriptions of the logo, so let's hope that Chris is right and that these mockups aren't doing the sash design justice.
I think the sash can work, but not as plain and boring as it is in the mockup. I'm sure we've all played with the sash idea from time to time. I did just last summer in the IceHL's summer design contest. Sadly my jerseys only got to the Final Four, and Mr. McElroy managed to win the whole thing... How does McElroy manage to get mentioned in almost all of my posts? It's like I do it on purpose...
