The Dallas jersey's are perfect.

They both have laces (which ours should)
They replaced some green with some black (which we should have done)
There logo is in the right place (ours is too high)
They used a secondary logo for the shoulders (the warning flag should be on the shoulders)

Finally our collar should have the warning flag on the outside, not the inside.

Yep, all this. I'd want more black though and some silver. I guess that's no longer going to be our 3rd color?

It's still on the jersey as an outline, but it's not the same silver as before. I think other then that they've eliminated the color from the jersey's.

I watched the video and the only silver mentioned was used for back drop of the logo.

 

I personally don't care about the silver

 

For the home jersey

 

The stripes should be white-black-white (on the jersey and socks), not white-red-white.

The warning flag that is the logo on the third jersey needs to be on the shoulders of the home jersey.

The logo needs to be lowered to the center, not on the sternum. 

The warning flag needs to be on the outside of the back of the home collar, not on the inside.

 

For the away jersey

 

They should have laces on the away jersey

The warning flag should be in the yoke of the away jersey

The logo needs to be lowered to the center, not the sternum

The warning flag needs to be on the outside of the back of the away collar, not on the inside.

 

In my opinion, all it would take is those adjustments to make the sweaters flawless.

The only things I don't agree with are the Shoulder patch (unless it was pretty small) and the squares. The alt logo was done incorrectly and means that there's a tropical storm threat and a possible hurricane warning. It should be a Hurricane threat with the Hurricane standing right in front of you. lol 

 

The squares were never going to be visible though. The original intent of the redesign was to get rid of the squares and the warning flags. 

 

I actually think that the alt logo will get changed after the season along with the alt jersey.

I understand that they went for a simplistic look with the home jersey, but you can't do that with the color red. The color red is not a simple collar, they essentially made the jersey too bold and decided not to tone it down by contrasting the color red with black.

I definitely agree that it would look better with some black. Heck even if it was just the Red stripe in the center being black on the base and sleeves.

The only reason it should be changed is because one flag signals a tropical depression and two flags signal a hurricane. Other than that, the hockey stick with a "hurricane" flag on it is flawless.

 

I'm not sure if they are designing them for the players or for marketing, because I can guarantee you that they will have a tough time selling those home one's. Everyone I have talked to says it's just too much red.

 

The away jersey will be a big seller, I think a lot of people really like those. Even people that are not fans of our team.

That's what I was mainly talking about, updating it and making it two flags. Maybe a couple of other really small tweaks to make the two flags fit and look right. 

 

 

Since it's was said that JR and E. Staal had a hand in the redesign, I'm going to say they were made for the players first. Merchandise sales don't really make a ton of money for the team.  It's mostly going to the NHL and the Players. 

 

I also think that the away jersey is going to be a big hit.

They need to mirror the away jersey onto the home jersey and add the second logo to the shoulder but mirror the second logo on each shoulder so that the flags are blowing in the same direction. IMO that away jersey is perfect but change these few things and move the primary logo down about 2 inches and they will blow everyone out of the water.

In a similar vein to NFL teams, will the old jerseys go on sale now? Is there a team store in Raleigh I could check out?

The old jerseys were on sale when the season ended.  IDK about now though.

 

Alright so there's pictures floating around of Eric wearing the home jersey from the event and it looks way better than on the mannequin.  All in all, I'm just glad they didn't change the logo to the storm flag with "Carolina Hurricanes" around it in a circle or something.

 

Also they're keeping the same thirds so the storm flag belt thing isn't going away entirely.

It kinda bugs me that Staal had a say in it. This kinda confirms my suspicions that they mirrored Canada's jersey to make the Staal's happy. No organization should ever bend over backwards for any player.

How is asking for the captain of the team's opinion on a jersey that he has to wear for 82 games "bending over backwards"?

There's a few team Canada guys on the team that either play for the Olympic team or the world team. The Staal brothers, Skinner and Ward. 

 

 

Also Rod Brind'amour and Ron Francis had input on the jersey, they were brought in before the final design and were asked for input on the jersey. Coach Kirk Muller is the one that got the Lace added to the Home jersey. The basis of the design came from original 6 jersey styles.

 

 

If you go and look at the behind the scenes video, they go over most of the guys who had some input on the design. 

They don't mention Staal during the video, but they do mention that he had direct input on it in the press conference.
