Default Flames / Jets Heritage Classic pre-game discussion and information thread

Quote:
The Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets will meet in the middle of Canada for the 2019 NHL Heritage Classic in October. Dallas Kirkpatrick offers up his guess on what the clubs will wear. I have it on good authority that he's right on target. So this is less a concept and more a preview of what's to come.

Is this legit? It's awesome if it is!


Edit: I re-uploaded the image to a different host. I've never had issues with Postimages before, but looks like I'll be jumping on the Imgur wagon afterall. I've held out for as long as I could!

That's exactly what I wanted, and just gorgeous.

BTW, Popovich (Flames marketing guy, can't remember his title off the top of my head) on twitter today confirmed that the Flames are gonna have a 40th anniversary logo this year.

YES PLEEEEASE!!!! My all-time favourite Flames uniform. Jets ones are slick too, but I wish they'd go back to the regular blue ones instead of the navy.

Although these examples are educate guesses, I don't expect any major surprises.

The Jets striping is from their circa-1976 WHA days (while adding a white background to the crest).

Pretty much expected the classic white jerseys with the red shoulders. Be interesting to see if the fabric texture is tweaked in some subtle way.

YES. This tees up a switch to full retro home/away in 2020/2021. I've been dying for this to happen for years.

Also, I think the Flaming C on the white would be larger than depicted in the mock-up.

Here's the Retro White currently being sold.

Damn, those are really nice on both sides. Hope this concept is accurate as I'd have to buy one of those whites.

Check any surrounding towns. I had to get a place in Moose Jaw.

On the jerseys: beautiful.

Hopefully, the Flames wear the retro reds and the Jets with the retro whites.

This was basically confirmed back in March by the Flames' Director of Marketing...

I wonder when we can expect to see these for real? With the Heritage Classic being in October, it should be soon.

It looks like the Jets revealed their last Heritage Classic jerseys on August 5 in 2016. The Flames revealed their Heritage jerseys on August 4 in 2010.


Following that same schedule, we should be seeing something in the next couple of weeks.

FINALLY! It's only been 13 years in the same unpopular jerseys. I will cling to this glimmer of hope like my life depends on it

Battle of the red pants

These look gorgeous. They have entered into "so you're finally gonna do it, huh?" territory, so a lot of the excitement is dulled. But it's pretty exciting to be able to get current Flames jerseys that actually look good.
