For what it's worth that icethetics.co website seems to infer that the reason the teams released uniforms today on twitter are because the teams not mentioned (MTL, TOR, CHI) will not have any changes whatsoever. So it seems to infer that the teams listed will have changes, albeit likely small ones.

Also notes that the Buffalo blue seems like the same older dark. Couple other interesting notes, like how Colorado was rumoured to switch their logo to the what's on their current 3rds but are keeping the original A logo for this year... LV commentary. Kinda interesting.

I wasn't heavily on the "royal blue" train -- it would've been fine, but I quite like the dark navy look. We haven't seen it in a really 'cleaned up' form (without all the stupid piping) and I think it would look really great if it is cleaned up.

The Habs finally tweeted out their teaser this morning.

I'm sure everyone will be shocked to see that they'll have a red base jersey with a large blue stripe, bordered by smaller white stripes, running through the middle of the logo. The only noticeable change is that (like most other teams) the main colour of the logo will be done using the jersey mesh material rather than tackle twill.



That leaves Toronto, Chicago, and Pittsburgh as the only teams to have not yet sent out a teaser. One of those teams has a decent excuse for being preoccupied.

None of those three teams should be expected to make any significant changes to their uniforms. Toronto and Pittsburgh just changed theirs this season, and Bobby Hull was still with the Blackhawks the last time they made more than a minor tweak to theirs.



Unfortunately, no teams have sent out new teasers today, so it looks like we won't be getting a new teaser each day until the release. Hopefully something tomorrow.

Surprised the Oilers would stick with orange as they are the worst jerseys in the NHL.

Jets doing their best Blue Bombers impression from 95~ to 2014 and refusing to give fans what they want. Smart business strategy, bold.

Addidas probably didn't want to come in and upset a bunch of fans with a radical redesign, so I'd bet they are all identical as last season save for some three stripe branding under the arm.

Little do they know Flames fans have been pining for a radical redesign.

As much as it kills me to say it, I like the Oilers' orange jerseys. I mean, I hate their logo and everything about the city/fanbase/organization, but I like the colors and patterns on their orange jerseys.

I am too. As much as I hate them, their blue uniforms weren't that bad. These orange ones are hard to look at though. Easily among the ugliest in the NHL.

Massive downgrade for them, which I'm fine with. Makes them easier to hate (as if it wasn't easy enough).

My theory is every jersey in the "teaser" is their current jersey, except for Minnesota because they are the only one switching primary colours

On most of the logos, you can see that the large coloured part of the logo is made using the same mesh material as the jersey. That was never done in the past.

You can see here in the red of the Habs logo, it's the same material as the red in the body of the jersey...



It's harder to see on the Flames' logo because it's black, but if you boost the brightness on the image, you can see that it too has the mesh logo.

Dammit! Every theory, hope and dream I can possibly cling onto that we're hopefully possibly maybe getting retro home/away jerseys has been destroyed

Jersey has to fit the character of the organization.

Me too. I like seeing some different coloured jerseys in this league. I love the Preds jerseys too with the yellow helmets. Really stands out which to me is the point of a uniform. Plus they look good IMO.

Black outline on the lettering to further depress the retro crowd.
