Not that I think salmon is a great colour, but let’s wait to see the concept before criticizing!!

This is right where my mind went too. I remember the teal and 'marine' was all I heard of originally and the sentiment was that this California team was going to be a group of sissies.


Something brought up quite a bit then is appropriate now... teams can look pretty boss in 'girly' colours if it's done right



Of note: I haven't found a combo that looks 'masculine' in these colours yet.

But the Sharks jersey and merch almost immediately became one of the biggest sellers in the league after it was introduced.

^ Oh yeah, it was well received when it was released. The schoolyard was littered in teal

They look like a mixture of the Kelowna Rockets with the Carolina/Phoenix trim along the bottom, with the Haida influence on the salmon.

It's decent.
