Yup, emoji in a hockey helmet. Shoulder patches are cool. The third (wordmark) logo is cool too. The primary one is awful.

Lol was this damage control to make people feel better about the big club's new jerseys?

New candidate for 7's favorite?

That trident logo is actually pretty cool. Honestly wouldn't be half as bad if they swapped the main logo and shoulder patch.

What's REALLY scary is that I think changing the NJ logo was absolutely on the table at points during the redesign process...can't help but wonder if something along the lines of the Binghamton crest was heavily considered to replace ours.  Thank God SOMEONE involved put an end to that idea.

Agree with nessus, the trident isn't half-bad...if that was the main crest (with NJ logos on the shoulders), that would be a major improvement.  But the "Devoji"...bleech.  Terrible.

You know what , for our minor team... I like it. Only thing is the tail out of his head seems weird. But other than that, i think it's coool. I still would like to see the Devils den logo head as a minor primary.

I think the word mark one without the head looks better than the creepy smiling face. And the trident is cool. 

But eh, it's the minor league team. It doesn't matter enough to get worked to over

And CR76 is right... I think you can guarantee this was on the table for the big club. Thank god someone had the sense not to let it happen

One thing that's weird too is the introduction of Orange in the color palette on the trident...that seems weird to me. 

Again, the more I look at it, the more I like it - I'd buy a tshirt...but stay away from the NHL team with it.

Also, it's a logo that can move cities too as minor teams do from time to time.

It looks like it would be an adorable logo for a mites team, but I don't like it for anyone older than that.  I am vehemently opposed to cartoon-type logos.

It's a mullet; representing parts of upstate NY where they still rock that look.

It looks like garbage. Again the empty no bottom stripes look. And it indeed is an emoji. A silly cartoonish emoji. 

It's still feels odd to me, after the Lou era, to have this franchise behaving in such a bush league manner. Even though this is just minor leagues so nobody will lose any sleep over it.

It's all around ugly. Even the best aspect of it, the trident, looks out of place and cluttered on the shoulders

Now that the dust has settled a little bit, my view of the B-Devils jersey has softened a little bit.  However, while a lot of teams also have cartoony logos, the B-Devils did it the wrong way.  I think the parts I hate about it is the stupid helmet and the sh!t-eating grin he has.  Remove that helmet and tail and make the Devil a little more evil looking (even the rat in the River Rat logo looked more angry/evil) and the logo would look vastly improved.

If you turn the Trident logo sideways, it almost looks like a B.

All I can say is WOW!  Those Bingo jerseys are horrible.  The primary and secondary logos are bad, and the crest looks tiny on the jersey without the horizontal striping.  The wordmark and shoulder patches are good though.  They should have made the shoulder patch the primary logo. 

The one thing I will say is that logo scares the hell out of me when the big club comes out with a 3rd jersey in a year or 2.

That's my beef...they made the Devil CUTE?!  It's a fvcking Devil for fvck's sake!  If they really wanted to put an actual Devil on the jersey, they could've come up with something a hell of a lot more badass than that!  That really looks like a mighty mites jersey with the Devoji as the crest.  I agree with your suggestions on how it can potentially be improved though...they would represent a start...hell, even the Lowell Devils logo was light-years ahead of the Devoji. 

Agree with others that I don't really get worked up over what the AHL team is wearing, but it will always scare me that OUR team was probably a lot closer to doing this to the big team's jersey than we'll ever know.  I have a feeling there were probably some very heated discussions about ditching the classic NJ logo.  God what a disaster that would have been...the reaction to Fishsticks and Buffaslugs would have seemed like a kumbayah serenade compared to how we would've lost it.

That's exactly what they should have done if not the traditional logo (letter with horns and tail).

A lot of people worrying about the "cute" logo need to remember that minor league teams tend to market to kids and families. That may have played into those decisions. 

That being said, it wouldn't shock me to see a black third for Bing with that shoulder logo in the future.

They could have made it a little less cute-sy.  The Beast of New Haven, an ECHL team, had a Krull-inspired beast as their main logo.

Hell even the Dayton Demonz, an FHL team, has a scarier mascot/logo than the B-Devils:

The sh!t storm that would happen if they used this logo on our jerseys would be unreal. I honestly believe they would have to change the logo back before the start of the season because of how much the fans, myself in included on this one would flip out lol

They could have made it less cutesy, yes. And yeah other teams approached it differently, but I think being a minor league team made them decide to go a more kid-friendly route. 

 

I also think something like this was on the table for the big club and i hope who ever brought it up is bagging groceries now.

I like that 3rd one a lot.  The others, I don't really think they're good, but I don't hate them as much as others seem to.  I agree that it was probably marketed towards a younger audience, hence the emoji-looking face style, as well as the a sort of smile rather than a menacing grin.  It's fine for a minor league club, but as others have said, keep this away from our NHL Devils, and leave our logo as-is.

This article was posted by someone on a jersey forum.  This is in regards to the new Fanatics-branded "Breakaway" line of replicas which will replace the Reebok-branded Premier line of replicas.

https://sgbonline.com/fanatics-raphael-peck-talks-league-deals/

Most telling is this part:

Can you discuss the NHL fan jersey redesign? The National Hockey League has done an incredible job developing a beautiful authentic jersey, but it’s one which commands a high price point. When we gained the exclusive fan jersey rights, the first thing we wanted to do was ensure we were creating a product that fit the needs and wants of fans worldwide. So we reached out to over 15,000 fans and invited them to be part of the design solution. What we heard back was: ‘My jersey fits big,’ ‘I can’t fold it,’ ‘It has to be hung,’ ‘I struggle to launder my jersey and wash it properly, ‘It’s heavy and ‘it’s scratchy.’ And from women we heard, ‘I don’t love the fit,’ and overall women told us that against their skin it really doesn’t feel good.

And we took all these issues and said, how do we take weight out of the jersey, make it more malleable so that it can be folded and laundered and how do we refine the fit? Most of the current fan jerseys really would look better on someone who was wearing shoulder pads. So while we didn’t want to lose the authentic look, we wanted to make them appear less baggy or boxy. So we really approached this very methodically and developed what we call Fan Features. First there’s Fan Flex, an incredible new textile that supports embroidery and other forms of embellishment that go on a jersey to make it more comfortable. We also have Fan Fit, where we employed a digital model to analyze body forms to truly understand how to maximize the fit of the jersey. And then we have Fan Shield, a technology that manages moisture. Fans are always moving in different temperatures so cool and dry was a really important component to the redesign.

So these Fan Features become baseline components that we believe will be an absolutely incredible component to jerseys in the future, including our new NBA product doming out later this year.

So the jersey look basically doesn’t change? Yeah. The National Hockey League is incredibly disciplined about the heritage of the league and respect for the teams. And some teams are more open-minded to change than others. But by and large the official on-ice jersey is being overseen by Adidas and clearly that brand is going to work directly with the NHL to sort of set the basic baseline context of the aesthetic. There are some liberties that we can take creatively, and we have, but every time we take a creative liberty we make sure that it’s value additive to the jersey and to the fan and that the teams really, really love it. So we’re excited about the aesthetic. Overall, the biggest change to the  National Hockey League jersey is that that you are actually going to have by and large crew-neck jerseys on the ice for the first time in decades and you’re going to go away from the traditional V or lace up to much more of a crew-neck type look. Even where there are lace-up jerseys, those will be integrated into the crew neck as well.

 

In other words, prepare for replica jerseys to feel even more like a glorified t-shirt than an actual reproduction of an on-ice jersey.

Shoutout to @Ralliart90 for grabbing like.. 10 jerseys on clearance from the NHL store over the weekend.

Da real MVP.

I fully expect these Adidas replicas to be garbage in quality.

Give it a few years and the customization will soon be totally screened on and you will be told it is a "feature" that will make it easier for you to fold and wash.

Just you wait.
