0703: Centennial Celebrations I

Mike Ivall gets the week started for us with his new 100 Years of Hockey project. In 2017, the NHL and the Maple Leafs will be celebrating their centennials and Mike is looking ahead with a series of new concepts. He writes:

The Centennial Game. First game of the season at the ACC in Toronto. Toronto Arenas versus Club de Hockey Canadien. The Canadiens jerseys are from the 1912-13 season where they only used them to play the Sens who also had the original barber pole jerseys at the time. According to the Canadiens site, this was the idea behind the classic jersey you see today.

I'm looking forward to what else Mike has in store. Also eager to see what other designers can come up with. We're still a few years away, so no rush.

I'd love to see a series of the entire NHL in stylized early-early 20th century style jerseys like this.

I'm a big fan of white pants and I think they look fine on tv. Looking forward to see what comes of this series!

Hate white pants. Nice jersey set though.

Squint your eyes and picture what the white pants and white lower band of the jersey will look like. and add the half white socks.
Not sure if it will show on hi def. colour TV.
Outdoors certainly would be ghostly.
