The Red Wings have an ad on their home page now for reserving the new-style team jerseys. Included is the following photo…
And we can all breathe a sigh of relief.
There are a few small changes here and there. The white stripe at the bottom of the red jersey seems thicker to me and the red stripe on the white jersey looks a little lower. I can’t tell if the shoulder “notches” are still on the white jersey, I’ll miss them if they’re gone but it won’t look bad either way.
The big change is the collar, with the NHL going the NFL route and adding the league logo there. I think the laced collar sported by Boston (and others) looks better than the standard collar that the Wings went with but since Detroit didn’t have a laced collar to begin with, I can see why they didn’t go with one this time.
So we end up with the same basic design, which is 100% fine by me. No needless piping or overdone striping or combinations of the two. Yep, good enough for me.
