Today, the Washington Capitals unveil their 2015 Winter Classic jersey. But for now, here's a new home and road set from Bastian Schmülling. I'm a fan, for the most part. I like the stars on the shoulders, but where's the Weagle? I'd put it front and center. How about you?
Concepts like this one by Dallas Kirkpatrick have been prevalent for a while. A lot of people seem to be interested in a Flyers jersey that pays tribute to the old Philadelphia Quakers. So what are they waiting for? It's not a bad look.
I couldn't decide between these two Flyers concepts, the second here by Dylan Wonka, so I decided to post them both today. Though it occurs to me this second one might have too much of a Pittsburgh feel, given the new third jersey they just unveiled on Friday.
If you had to choose between the two, which would you pick?
Sep 22 · An earlier version of this post incorrectly credited Dallas Kirkpatrick's concept. Apologies for the error.
David Parkinson is back with the second half of his MLS hockey sweaters today. Last week, we got the Western Conference. Now, we wrap up with the Eastern Conference.
(Click the images above to enlarge and view as a slideshow.)
David based his jerseys on local hockey teams, as follows:
- Chicago Fire based on Blackhawks
- Columbus Crew based on Blue Jackets
- D.C. United based on Washington Capitals
- Houston Dynamo based on Houston Aeros (AHL, 1994)
- Kansas City Sporting based on Kansas City Scouts (NHL, 1974)
- Montreal Impact based on Canadiens
- New England Revolution based on Boston Bruins
- Philadelphia Union based on Flyers
- New York Red Bull based on Rangers
- Toronto FC based on Maple Leafs
We're sticking with the soccer theme next Sunday, but with a completely different spin.
The next big jersey unveiling on the NHL calendar happens Tuesday when the Washington Capitals reveal their look for the 2015 Winter Classic. Last year, Tyler Duchaine and Brendan Sheridan of the Capitals Hill blog put together this concept.
Recently, Tyler asked if I'd like to feature it on Icethetics. I figured the last Outdoor Saturday concept post before the real unveiling would be the perfect time to share it. Their logo looks great, but I think the jersey is probably dead on. Yes, it's the obvious way to go, but that doesn't make it wrong. What are you hoping for?
Jake Miller takes us to the weekend on this Freak Out Friday.
This is different than every thing that they've worn up to this point... in Carolina. This is what I like to a Modern-Hartford-lina (yes I know that's the worst name you've ever heard), it has the Modern Hartford colors, but with subliminated flags in the striping, it calls back to Carolina.
Which name is worse? Hartford-lina or Whalercanes?
