This is the predicted Avalanche RR2. It seems kinda silly to have 2 teams with nearly identical retros the same year. 

This is the best news I've heard all day.  It's early, but still.

Those are based off the Colorado Rockies which unfortunately are similar colors to the Kansas City Scouts so we didn't dodge the bullet just yet. I'm happy the Avalanche are taking the Rockies at least, they can keep them. 

Wish they would move the Coyotes to KC and they can take back the Scouts sh!t too.

Oh right duh, they look the same to me and I hate them.

Yeah, not that different, KC had uglier striping. 

Been over it, but the original MO-hawks striping worked out much better with the original MO-hawk logo:

Chris Creamer on Twitter: "Kansas City Scouts prototype made ...

The stripes were supposed to have something of a war paint feel...but of course the side-facing Native American head was excised (for the obvious reason), so then the KC franchise hastily adopted "Scouts" as their nickname and didn't attempt a proper full jersey redesign, and then made the stripes look busier by adding the shoulder and V-neck blue accent to the sleeve and waist stripes...where the original prototype stripes actually tied in reasonably well with the original logo, the tweaked Scouts stripes just looked like garish overkill.

 

The Rockies jerseys were a huge improvement...and it didn't hurt much that the Scouts colors happened to be damned close to those found on the Colorado state flag, so all the Rockies had to do was tone things down considerably, which they did pretty well.  

And of course, in the initial Rockies preseason, these hybrids made a brief appearance, due to the Rockies jerseys not yet being ready:

In my opinion, not one of those jerseys is not ugly. 

I don’t mind the MO-hawks prototype. The Scouts jerseys (especially the away blues) were hard on the eyes.  I like the “standard” Rockies jerseys.

I didn’t mean to say it meant we weren’t using the Scouts thing, I just think it’s poor planning by Adidas and the league to have 2 teams using nearly identical bases for their RR. I believe Adidas and the league are heavily involved in the designs on these correct?

Yeah it’s exceptionally stupid, actually.

I'm not sure but it's not like they are gonna play each other wearing the jerseys so it's not like it matters. Not really any different than how many teams have red and black and then blue and white color combinations.

I was thinking the same thing actually. Not like you’ll ever see them on the ice in the same game.  I have much more of an issue with the Devils digging so deep into an obscure past that doesn’t connect with anyone at all (and was hardly an attractive or memorable design to begin with, for the whopping two seasons they were worn during games), than I do with a pair of similar-colored RR 2.0 jerseys hitting the market this season.

And I understand the Avs going with a RR design that represents Colorado’s NHL history (both teams had even played in the same building, though many years apart of course).  Yeah, the franchises are otherwise unrelated, but the Wild completely rocked a North Stars-based RR previously…same situation.  At least people in Denver should have some fun with the whole thing (especially older fans).

Ok, so I bought a replica Jersey jersey and I’m going to send it out for customizing. Obviously I want a goalie. Do I take my chances on Blackwood, knowing his future is uncertain, or should I go with a rookie year Daws jersey?

I feel like at this point, even if he never makes it back to the NHL, at least it was his rookie year and he had the best showing in the season we first wore them. 

Should I get a Daws?

Feels like you're doomed either way, I don't trust any of our goalies not to disappoint.

Skeptical of doing that on the event he plays 4 games and blows out a hip lol.

True, but Can I be disappointed by Daws if he isn’t playing? Maybe not lol.

FYI, the 40th patches are available on eBay. I picked a pair up a couple weeks ago. 

I have one en route myself. I think I will wait to see if they have them on the black jerseys in the same position as we saw, why not.
