New Logos And Jerseys Part XII

Via NHL Tournament of Logos comes this screen shot from an EA Sports ad for NHL 2K8featuring Marty Turco in what may very well be the Dallas Stars' new home jerseys:

It's gotta be a placeholder, a generic jersey used for video game promotions while the Stars were putting the finishing touches on their real jerseys, right? Right?!

People will probably hate the Mighty Ducks reference, but that jersey screams, "H-A-W-K-S, HAWKS HAWKS HAWKS!"

It looks like something Gordie Howe would have worn in 1940 only with Detroit on the front. That's one ugly uniform.

1) Looks like something they'd use in some grade B sports movie.

My gut feeling was this was due to copyright issues, but the more I look at it, the more I believe it has to be real, especially since you see the Rbk logo on his stick.

Hopefully you're right and it's just a place holder. Otherwise, Dallas' jersey fell from the fugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

It is totally fugly. I to though it may be a place holder, but would they put the Actual Stars logo on the shoulder if that was the case?

Ah, well-reasoned.

It doesn't bother me that much; it's kind of classic. Why force putting a stupid logo on there or making a gratuitous star pattern? I'll take this over the vancouver sweater any day of the week.

Apparently that's what they'll look like...

I don't mind them terribly. Super plain? Sure. Ugly? Not compared to others that are popping up.

I heard somewhere that there will be four teams with numbers on the front this year. Only one I've seen so far is the Islanders. No reason why the Stars couldn't be the 2nd team to implement this. It's certainly...uh...different.
