Kings bringing back the Chevy logo.

Concept looks great... if it wasnt for those weird hula-hoop things at the bottom. /s

 

Devils new alt is rumored to drop as soon as later this month or next month.

Rumor is that it is finally a black version.  Would make sense given the new pants logo plus the hats the players have been wearing.  I think it will be a black with gray and red accents.

Just curious why are you thinking grey?

New pants logo and hats the players have been wearing.  Gray is a common color.  It's the same hat that Marty and a bunch of former Devils players we wearing during the MB30 Golf Invitational a couple weeks back or so.  A bunch of players have been wearing that same hat as well during their interviews at training camp.

Mike Wagenman on Twitter: "This is the second time I've seen the logo on  Dougie's hat. Black & white, no red, & no ring around the logo. First  instance was Marty Brodeur's

ahh interesting. branding wise you'd assume it was going to be black, red and white but if they decide to do something slightly different grey would be the next logical way to go.

I’ve had a feeling that the black Bing alternates last year were a trial run for the big team to eventually have a black sweater. I didn’t realize we were in line for one so soon though

I have also heard that the Devils alt will be fundamentally very similar to that one.

I have a fair degree of color blindness, but isn’t that a black hat with a white logo?

It's either gray or silver to me.  However, it could be white as well.

Controversial take: would be cool with some version of that pitchfork logo as the crest.

All I’m gonna say is the best black Devils alt I’ve seen to date was the one you came up with.  Hoping whatever we see is close to on par.

i dunno, I'm actually kinda digging the white crest. 

The white crest is OK…the stripes and neck, not so much.

I'd buy this jersey, I really think we need the red to be prominent

I also love the way the white stripes pop...almost like they're illuminated.  I loved that design the second MB3 debuted it...it simply just works.  Incredibly clean.

The Bingo blacks miss the mark...neck area doesn't feel right, and those sleeve stripes feel unnecessarily busy...and why is there a lower red border hem on the INSIDE of the jersey?!  And DD56 is right, the overly busy sleeves make the whole design feel unbalanced, with no stripes on the bottom of the jersey.  Eliminate the outer two white stripes on the sleeves, widen the red stripe a bit, then add that to the bottom...that could work.  Of course, not like that isn't almost the same thing as the Albany River Rat blacks back in the day, but I'd prefer that to the Bingo template.

The one thing I'll say in defense of the Bingo blacks is that maybe they look better on bodies than they do hanging up or lying in the floor in a photo.  But can't see them trumping MB3's layout.

Based on those hats, they’re gonna totally fvck it up and go with a white crest instead of red, and it’s gonna ruin the whole thing. Red pops. White doesn’t. If they go with a black jersey design, it’s red crest or fvck off.

Heh heh that pitchfork still looks like a salamander crawling forward to me.  Wish I could unsee that.
