I think we'll have some sort of throwback-looking jersey that's not technically a throwback.  Something in our current colors but with a more "classic" look - like New Jersey in script on the front in like a cream color, with the logo on the shoulders, and probably a lace-up at the neck because that's apparently classy and classic and throwback-y.

 

I was thinking something along this line as well, except instead of the script, there would be one of those circle logos with the main logo in the middle and the team name written around the outside.  I know there are other teams that do this, but I had the Wild's retro logo (started out as their alternate, now it's on the home jersey) in mind when I was designing the Devils' version.  I used cream instead of white because that seems to be the new "classic" thing to do, and there's two versions, one for a white jersey and the other for a red jersey.  Also, as you can see, I used the original green instead of the modern black.

And I can't decide if this would go on the Christmas tree jerseys as-is or if the white on those -- regardless of whether it's the home or away one -- would be changed to cream.  I was playing around with the mockups they have on nhluniforms.com and jerseydatabase.com, and they sort of look good with the cream and they sort of don't.

always thought home/road "whites" were a dumb concept, I didn't even realize it had anything to do with black and white tv.

 

Yup.  Same reason why the blue lines are solid and the red center-ice line is not.

Nice work, Rowdy! The one on the right would look especially good on a red sweater.

Too bad the game isn't being played in NJ since the Devils are the home team. All other home teams are playing in their city or state.

Instead of putting up a new thread I figured it was cleaner just to bump this.

 

It looks like there will be at least 1 Stadium Series game next year as it was leaked through Ticketmaster that there will be a game between the Sharks and the Kings at the new Levi's Stadium (new SF 49er's stadium) on Feb 21, 2015.

 

I just found this interesting as I thought Bettman said earlier this past off-season that they were putting a hold on the SS games for at least 1 season before thinking about bringing them back.  i guess the $ might have been the main factor in changing his mind.

was there a reason why Bettman said he wanted to put a hold on the SS games for a year?  doesn't make any sense to me as to why you would want to do something like that.

 

the ratings and revenue should be enough of a reason to keep them, very simple.

I think he said something to the effect of just too much and they wanted to protect the Winter Classic brand.  Even though I loved the SS last year it did feel like it was a a bit too much.  However, the SS are pretty much the only way a few teams will ever get an outdoor game, including the Devils last year.

Agree with Zubie, no overkill. But with SF getting this monster revenue of a stadium up, there is no way Bettmen is passing on that profit!

The SS is essentially for those two fanbases and whoever happens to watch. And they make so much money from it that hey why not.

Apparently from what I am hearing, there will be only 1 SS game this year.  Also from what I am hearing is that the Kings will be wearing a different jersey this year than their SS jersey from last year.  For the Sharks they will be wearing a brand new jersey but it will not feature orange as it's primary color according to what I am seeing and hearing from jersey insiders (if anyone even cares lol).

 

I think with the Heritage Classic should be done once every other year since basically that is just drawing from a pool of only 7 NHL teams and could grow stale more quickly than the SS and WC games.

I'm probably in a crazy minority, but I wouldn't mind each team getting one outdoor game per season. I enjoy them that much, the fans obviously do, the teams and the leagues make tons of cash.

Of course, to do that would kill off the novelty within a season or two. I just talked myself out of it.

Yeah that would be a little much.  However, I do like the idea of a SS game each year where while not as big as the WC, it still showcases teams that would otherwise never have a shot in hell in being in a WC since NBC is the ultimate decision maker in the teams playing in them.  Would love to see an outdoor game in Denver and in Minnesota sometime.

If the Sharks aren't in teal for that game, I riot.

Someone who has actually seen the concepts (he works in the jersey industry and described the Kings and Ducks SS jerseys last year perfectly right before they were released) said that they are not going in the direction of their early 90's template.  He couldn't divulge more but that can be interpreted both ways.  Could be teal, but not the same design or no teal at all.

 

He did say though that there will be no orange in it and in fact they want to get rid of orange all together even on their regular jerseys
