The St. John’s Ice Caps will be moving to Laval, Quebec beginning next season. As such, they will be changing the name as well to the Laval Rocket. The new uniforms have been unveiled and here are the color and white versions. While using the Canadiens colors they won’t be wearing the parent jerseys, which is a good thing. If you want to wear the Habs jersey, earn the promotion.
The Colorado Rockies are making a change to their brand for the upcoming 2017 season. If you don’t pay attention closely to colors, the Rockies have brightened their purple to be more “purpley” and give it a consistent color match whether it’s a hat, jersey or various stadium lighting. This long overdue adjustment is the first change in the clubs 24-year history. And what a nice change it will be.
Unconfirmed reports out of the Capital District have the Devils leaving Albany at the end of the season and moving to Binghamton, replacing the Senators who are moving their franchise to Belleville. Stay tuned hockey fans
One of the negatives coming out of the NHL deal with Adidas is no alternates uniforms next season. The NHL has stated this will make the introduction of the Adidas apparel easier. It is surprising that a major apparel manufacturer is unable to handle this, seeing as they have had over a year to address this issue. Hopefully Adidas won’t be tied to one template as Reebok was and please return to true horizontal stripes.
Atlanta: These home and away need to replace the current atrocities.
Boston: They need to bring these home and away back.
Baltimore: Bring bad the old alt road and away days.
Cincinnati: The big red machine! Home and away. Sansabelt and all.
Cleveland: The 90’s home (even though it’s a movie pic) and away.
Chicago Cubs: This road uniform is the best ever.
California: What they have is nice, but this home and road is better.
Pittsburgh: The days of Pops. Gold, white, gold/black, black/gold.
Minnesota: The powder blues and pinstripes.
Florida: Teal is for real. This is a home run.
San Diego: Bring back da brown!
San Francisco: The orange rules! This alternate.
When someone has one of the best colors in the color palette, why would they choose to go black? The Flyers tried this obsession years ago and it turned out to be in my opinion, the biggest mistake they could have made regarding their uniforms. This is their atrocious jersey for the upcoming Stadium Series. Good thing for the fans it’s a one-time thing.
1. Philadelphia – The Eagles, Flyers, Sixers, Phillies home and away. And the Flyers again, just because.They got it right then seemed to go wrong at times. But still the best there ever was. And this is coming from a Mets/Giants fan.
