Last week, Adidas announced that thirteen NHL teams will be making changes to their uniforms. Those teams include the Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, Calgary Flames, Colorado Avalanche, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, New Jersey Devils, Ottawa Senators, and of course, the Vegas Golden Knights.
These changes are to be minor and will not be seeing any new primary team logos, unlike the switch to Reebok saw in 2007. We can expect for almost all of these to be minor tweaks to the current designs.
With minor changes to these team’s uniforms, Adidas also announced that no team will have an alternate uniform for the 2017-2018 season.
With the news of Adidas making these changes, Boston Bruins analysts and fans have been expressing their opinions on what Adidas should do to the Black and Gold’s current uniform. A popular, favorite opinion has been to bring back the gold Winter Classic jerseys the Bruins wore in 2010 at Fenway Park and make that the home uniform.
The expectation is that the Boston Bruins will keep it simple; possibly with something similar to their 2016 Winter Classic jerseys which became their alternate thirds. Maybe even a different font for the names or numbers.
What suggestions do you have? Maybe have a gold away jersey? A patch that resembles someone (like Bobby Orr) or something about the history of Boston or the Bruins? Leave your opinion below!
