Welcome to the “Re-Imagining The NHL” project created by Cole Jones. Cole has been great enough to allow Days of Y’Orr to post his idea on different teams with his spin on them. You can follow Cole on Twitter. Please feel free to comment on the team below. Feel free to read the official announcement of the project here. If you haven’t checked out our other teams, visit the Re-Imagining the NHL team page. The team page will be updated daily with every team we update. So before we take a look at the uniforms, lets take a look at Cole’s comments on the Nashville Predators.
Cole’s comments: One thing I’ve always liked about the Predators identity was the unique combination of bright shiny metallic silver and an almost egg-drop-soup color of yellow. With word that the predators are heading in the direction of navy and black, I wanted to come up with an alternative. I really like the uniqueness of the checkerboard pattern they’re incorporated into their identity as well, so I decided to throw that in, hopefully without being too distracting.
The home and roads are my own design, while the alternate is a nod to the original Predators uniforms (again, without just being a straight throwback).
After the jump, it’s time for the Predators…
Days of Y’Orr’s comments: These are interesting and I actually like them…until I found out that Nashville is wearing a bright ass gold home jersey! I’ve never been a huge fan of the Predators choice of jerseys, but that gold jersey makes my peen move around. Lets pretend that they don’t have the gold jersey though. This home and away kit? Smashing. I love it. I love the shoulder logos and I love the consistency with the use of the primary logo throughout the three jerseys.
The current third jersey by Nashville isn’t bad by any means and it’s certainly better than the abortions put out by Columbus and Florida. At least Nashville has blue in their color scheme AND it’s not a fucking baby blue hockey jersey. God I hate those. What I like about Cole’s third jersey is that it brings the old school Predators jersey back without making it a complete throwback. The not-so-settle nuances to the franchise’s origin would make a lot of Predator fans happy.
But you can’t go wrong with a gold jersey.
God I can’t wait to buy that.
Obligatory Carrie Underwood/Mike Fisher in Nashville reference as well.
