The Weird 2020 Off-Season Thread

I think I'm underwhelmed. It feels like we always have to do something with green. I was hoping for something a little more fun. Like a Reverse Retro and thing around the Newark Bulldogs could've been fun and unique. The funny thing with the Green Jersey, is that I feel like I've seen it before. 

Hard pass from me, I have no desire to honor a minor league team that played only 40 games 91 years ago with horrible looking jerseys. It's bad enough they shoe horned in a nod to them on a current jerseys. 

Yuck...

I think those Jerseys updated could be killlllller. Like really go retro - with brown gloves and all.

Like that in Red and Black could be fun.

It's not about honoring either, are we really honoring the 80s Devils at this point anymore? I feel like it's only because we're still living in Stockholm Syndrom from Lou never doing anything interesting marketing wise. Like - if you're going to go for a retro - commit to it. The Green at this point just seems a cop out.

What if they went with a "jersey shore" theme and used blue/teal/yellow or something. Just something different for an alternate rather than the same thing again. 

Has 2020 not been bad enough? Why would you want to put this horror into the world? Lol

The 80/90s green, as much as I dislike the green is still our team's history. The random minor league team from 91 years ago who went 14-26 in their one and only season and who probably doesn't have a single person alive today who saw a game and nobody cares about doesn't make any sense for the team to do besides that they played 40 games in Newark. 

Adidas came up with this "reverse retro" idea, the jersey is a color reverse of our retro jersey. That was the whole point of this gimmick besides some teams not really following it like the Rangers and Islanders. It wasn't supposed to be design a random retro jersey.

For me it is that, but also that the team has never had a real alternate jersey. I'm okay keeping the logo, but give us something different in the design and colors. What if they went with a "jersey shore" theme and used blue/teal/yellow or something. Just something different for an alternate rather than the same thing again. 

I'm also someone that isn't old enough to remember real retros when they were used, so to me this just looks like the same retro jersey lol. 

Hey Alexa, why don't we let fans decide what colors to make a jersey?

"Thank you for asking MB3. We don't do that, because someone suggested a blue/teal/yellow jersey for the New Jersey Devils, and wasn't joking around." 

Thanks Alexa.

It's not terrible, but it looks busy and disproportionate with the crest sitting so low and all of the striping (I always found that annoying about the Christmas Tree red jerseys in the past).  It's very blah to me.  I have the same opinion about most of the jerseys released today.  

Some of the other teams jerseys are nice (Kings, Ottawa), some look almost the same as before to me (NYI), but a lot of these are just hideous (Dallas, Arizona, Anaheim, Winnipeg, etc.).  If Detroit didn't have a great logo, I would include them in the hideous category too.  At least I can say we are somewhere in the middle and they didn't do something stupid like trying to change the crest.

They’re 🔥as hell, although I agree on CR about the crest. Move that sh!t up. 

I said in another forum, it looks like its for expectant mothers so the logo is on the baby bump.

Other than the crest, I have no complaints. It’s as sharp a third jersey as I could ask for. And I’m critical as fvck.

Yuck, Quebec logos on the bottom of the Colorado jerseys and most likely as their center logo. I really hope we never do any garbage like this with Scouts or Rockies nonsense...

better than the drawing.  Can't say I hate it as much. The depth of the colors help imo. The logos aren't great but it captures their history - I guess. Really hated whatever they were guessing on the sleeves.

Oh man - A Jersey SHore theme?

But I see your larger point which is like - all of these jerseys are the same variation of the Christmas tree. Give me something different altogether. Keep the logo fine, but there are other things you can do with it. We always seem to play it safe. OTOH - Detroit's look terrible and the Rangers Liberty they over thought the simplification there.

I just want something not red black green and white. NJ has a lot going on, I'm just throwing the shore out there as an idea for a different set of colors. I'm not a designer and don't claim to be, but I am a guy with money and reverse retros aren't getting me to spend. Give me a real fvcking alternate already...and make it an alternate by design.

Yep.  Not sure why some teams were allowed to do whatever the hell they wanted.  Especially since so many teams did adhere to the "rules" (with wildly varying results).

Sad but a perfect description.  I'm hoping it's changed/fixed before they make their on-ice debut.

The actual on-ice jerseys look better than those, it’s still too low but not as bad. For comparison:

So are these available to buy yet or what? Or are we only gonna be able to buy knock-offs like usual because Adidas and the NHL both suck?

I read December 1st, and yes, you’ll only get to buy a sh!tty version of it .

Move the crest up!!!!!

Honestly, the entire body portion of that jersey looks too long. I’m 6 feet tall so I can pull it off, some of you guys are going to be wearing a mini dress.

Yeah I pointed out that the Heritage crest was a little too low (doesn't look as bad with an "A" or a "C"), but was within tolerable range.  The location on the RR is just ridiculous.  

What's funny is that is crest is actually centered if your reference points are the neckline and the bottom hem of the jersey.  But they're flat-out the wrong reference points to use.

The RR in that picture is likely one of the Made In Indonesia jerseys. Those all have the crest too low, even on our regular jerseys. A lot of guys walking around the Rock with a crest on their gut. But you're right, even looking at the pictures of those, the RR is still lower. 

It's supposed to be on your chest. Not hard to figure out.

Oh and the Rangers RR sucks.  Partly because it's a Ranger jersey.  And heavily because it's the end result is just...off.  Has the same issue that the Red Wings jersey does...looks more like a practice jersey, with the Statue of Liberty crest thrown on it.

I still with MB3 came up with the best design, a while back.  That was friggin' beautiful.
