Red Out For Panthers?

Posting speculation isn't something I love but often the source can change my mind. Miami Herald writer George Richards wrote in his Florida Panthers blog a brief description of what the team's new uniforms may look like. Apparently, team executive Michael Yormark said some interesting things around the time of the all-star game in Dallas.

The Panthers will also have a new look next season, the first real update since the team’s inception in 1993. Like each team in the league, Florida will only have two jerseys next year because of the Reebok redesign. The Panthers will get rid of their original red jersey at least for the time being.

“We’ve made changes,’’ Yormark said. “It’s a much more contemporary look. The look is going to be different from what we have now. We’re pretty excited about it.’’

The away jersey will still be white, but red will be the predominant secondary color; the home jersey remains blue, with yellow as the main accent. Yormark says horizontal stripes are out and vertical stripes are in. The leaping Panther logo on the chest will be larger and more dynamic.

Now I don't know what he means by "more dynamic," but the Panthers haven't publicly said anything about altering their logo in any way. So stay tuned with regard to that.

The Panthers have since announced the date for the unveiling as July 28 — this Saturday.
