What we have...
In 2007 the NHL was introduced the the Reebok Edge era. Colorado's old "mountain" jerseys were dropped and a new uniform was introduced. Here we have those current uniforms.
In 2007 the home and away were introduced. I honestly have never heard a nice word about them. In 2009, the alternate was released but I honestly like it. A lot in fact. That is why we'll be focusing on the home and away.
Is this a joke? It looks like John Michael Liles was cooking before the game and forgot to take off his apron. I'm okay with some piping but his just looks ridiculous. The whole jersey just looks like some designer was tired and just want used the paint bucket tool wherever he could. Different colored arms can be okay but these just make Liles look like he has a cape on from a front view. Also, what's up with the side panels and where did they come from?
The away jersey is pretty much the same story but my biggest problem is with the lettering. I have no problem with black in an Avs jersey but I don't like the black numbers and names. On the away jersey itself there is absolutely NO black other than the small portion in the logo. Even the home jersey has black. I don't understand why the Avs are afraid to try burgundy numbers. The shade is dark enough that it would look good.
I would love to hear feedback and there will be more to come on this subject very soon!
