No neck laces? How am I supposed to know this is a vintage-looking sweater?

I’m out.

At least you called it sweater and not jersey.

It’s a minimalistic design that’s symbolic of the very minimal hockey history of the area.

It's also a metaphor for our offense.

I guess there must have been some big discount on khaki pants.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Agree the pants are goofy, but the jersey is absolutely great. I love it. Imma order one soon.
you don't realize that your pants are too long until you walk to get a taco in the rain.

Is it only going to be worn for this one event? Seems like a bit of a waste.

The pants help them blend in with all the snow in our area.

And two more games later in the season.

I want a pair of these. They'd look *fargin'* ridiculous in beer league, and I've always been a fan of ugly gear.

The main takeaway is this thing should be renamed the Blackhawks Classic.

Both of Detroit’s are awesome. Both of Philly’s are lazy. 2015 Caps is pretty cool.

For the combined jerseys, give me 2008 or 2014 (I like that one didn't have to be white)

You guys are pretty gay.

All Blackhawks jerseys are racist, sexist, and denote cultural appropriation and violence against indian First Nations (especially the 2019 black one). The logo should be demoted right now and replaced by a lame capital "C".

I like cultural appropriation. I think more teams should be like the Redskins.

True. We would have much better chances to reach the playoffs.

Wins: Pens 2008, Blackhawks 2009, Blues 2017 (Nice looking jerseys related to their historical design and color schemes)

Fails: Red Wings 2009 (The Gothic D doesn't make sense: it's not the Tigers), Flyers 2010 (same look as the current jersey: laziness at its brightest), Capitals 2015 (again, this has nothing to do with the former Senators), Rangers 2018 (New York in the state of New York, really ?)



1. Good point: We avoid the racial controversy.
2. "In some ways"... It had to be green as a primary color, period.
3. As a former North Stars fan, I would have found it nice to have the green/gold/black/white color scheme because it's still part of the franchise history, and therefore more related to the team as opposite to some squad from the previous century. But I fully understand that Dallas folks don't give a *poo poo* about the history prior to 1993. This question remains (and will always remain) too touchy and sensitive.
4. There you go !

+ Sharp, clean and nice overall look of the jersey.
+ Green helmets. I'm in love with green helmet and I really think they should switch to those for all home games.
- The artificial look of leather-like pants and gloves. Like they were trying to show that people already wore those when Spanish colons first settled in the area back in the 16th century.
- The logo. Not because it's bad (actually I like it) with it is not related to the franchise history that would have been acknowledged.

Anyone find it a little bit odd that the new jersey promo features Seguin and not Benn?
Maybe it’s because Seguin is more photogenic.
Maybe it’s because there’s a greater than 0% chance Benn won’t be on the team by New Years.

I am not at all surprised considering how much the official NHL Instagram features Tyler. The ladies love him. And that includes my lady.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.

Good thing no one wants to give the Stars more money! (Another pic in the thread shows the line wrapping around the front of the facility)

Looks like they sold out online as well, again. Maybe this is just genius marketing on their part.

Some MI dispensary is giving away 200 Popeye's fried chicken sandwiches today. Like they need to bribe the people to come in?
