After weeks of anticipation, Nashville Predators fans finally got to see how the team’s new road uniforms look when the Preds participated in rookie tournament games this week in Florida, against the Panthers and Lightning.
Thanks to @rinkside on Twitter, which posted all but the first of these photos. Just click the images (or be patient and wait) to flip through the slideshow, which begins with a side-by-side comparison of the old with the new:
The conversation online was pretty positive regarding the new uni’s, they certainly seem to have a more distinctive look than the old road jerseys, which were so plain they almost looked like practice gear. We won’t get our first look at the new home uniforms until Saturday, September 24, when the Predators take on the Winnipeg Jets in pre-season action.
We’ve also got some video of how the new threads look in action:
So what do you think? A step in the right direction, or do you prefer what the Predators were using before? Personally, I’m on board with the new look, but then again, I was never a big fan of the recent “Black & Blue” 3rd jerseys that came out a couple years ago.
