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. Since neither Cole or Days of Y’Orr consider this team our “home team”, we will do our best to bring in a fan of the team described to get their thoughts. Today we were lucky enough to get input from Laura, founder of The Active Stick.
Here is part two of the Montreal Canadiens. For part one we looked at the home and road primaries as well as an alternate jersey. Check out our other teams as well if you haven’t already: Colorado, Minnesota, Phoenix, Florida, New York Islanders, Buffalo and Atlanta. Usually we start off with the designer’s thoughts but he changed a few things based on some feedback.
After the jump, a few different versions of the Canadiens white alternate…
Days of Y’Orr’s comments: There’s not much to say about the two variations. Really it’s the same design but a different color number. The question is, what number do you like better? Looking at the two of these, I’m more in favor of the white being used for the main number and the red with white border numbers for the arms. I have this weird thing about dark colored numbers. Outside of the Flames (who use black), I’m not a big fan. I feel like the number should stick out more as it does with Boston’s gold on their black primaries. I think the white accomplishes that.
What say you? White number or red number?
