At least it’s not last year’s version.

 

It’s the worst of the three but it’s a hell of a lot better than what we had the last couple years. They were embarrassingly bad imo.

:goodpost:

 

You've got to look at the old whites to appreciate how bad they were.

...having said that I would have preferred the alternate logo as the main logo, and the traditional logo as the shoulder patch.

 

You mean something like this?

I like that the flags are back and seem to be a bit more noticeable then the home jerseys. Seemed like PK brought back the flags to make fans happy but wanted them as hard to see as possible.

Back when ice was rare in Raleigh. 

 

 

Went to the game, got the autograph, drank the $2 beer, ate the superdog.

 

Good times.

Thank you for reminding me of this because it does tell me it could be worse.  I still threw up in my mouth a little over the new one tho.

I guess we were inspired by this?

I thought the TB 3rd jerseys were terrible the first time I saw them. No matter what else I like about the new away jerseys is colored by my dislike of the lettering down the front. Put the sightless eye as the crest with the two flags on the shoulders (or vice versa) and I would like them, but I am just not a fan of the lettering being the most prominent aspect of the jersey. Will take some getting used to.

I think the new one is ok, but I like this one better.

This is what it comes down to for me.

 

Slavin - Pesce

Hamilton-Faulk

Fleury - X

 

X= (in no order) Forsling, McKeown (if signed), or Priskie with one additional X as the seventh defenseman.  Camp picks two from that group to start the season.  This assumes TVR can go.

 

 

I admit I know nothing about Priskie. I want to see what he can bring in camp along with many others. It's going to be one of the most competitive camps in history and I plan on going to multiple sessions.

I'll reserve judgement until I see it on the ice in a game.

That is my thought as well. A picture doesn't give a realistic visual of what it looks like on a player in motion. I'll wait for my vote when I see it in action.

Why do grown men get upset by a clear bag they won't be totin' anyway?

Don't need a bag. I always go stealth.

Management tried to move both Faulk and Skinner last summer.  I think Skinner embodied the type of player RBA did not want to go to war with.  The team needed more grit, and the likes of Skinner were replaced by Ferland and Martinook.  What does it say when management moves 3 players drafted in the top 7 of their draft years (Lindholm and Hanfan at 5 and Skinner at 7) and make immediate progress?  While the Skinner trade was widely PuPued, it did bring valuable draft assets.  Faulk's playing time was not diminished last season, and he is not a player management has given up on.  They won't just give him away.  In the end I don't see them retaining him with their other RH D assets in place.

None of which was my point. I'm talking about from a fiscal point of view. As your prior post suggests, if we don't move him now we likely get nothing back. And we're so D heavy and close to the cap that now is the time.

"Now" has been the time for about 3 years.  Whatever the league sees as equity to acquire Faulk, the Canes do not relish pulling the trigger.  Possibly after training camps get under way, and some teams either realize they need more D or someone gets injured will be the time the offer(s) become attractive.  Let's see how it plays out.

So much for it being Justin Williams in the video. The diagonal lettering is going to take some getting used to, but I understand wanting all 3 jerseys to have a different logo. I liked everything else about it immediately.

I'm pretty "meh" about the new whites.

 

I still don't understand why they made the lettering red, then put red-and-black flags on the "C". The red outer part of the flags blends into the letter and the optical effect is lost.

 

Now, if they made the letters black with a silver border....

Why trade someone everyone else wants? Faulk was beyond good last year and unless you dont think you can off load him for value you keep him. Point blank. The retuen has to be better then what you give up. Dont hold your grudges for his past play against him.

Looking at the new sweaters again after a few hours, i threw up in my mouth a little again.  I hope they petition a lot of other teams to let them wear black again next year.  These things look worse to me now than they did the first time i looked.
