Part Five of “Devils As…” – On To The Northeast Division

Posted by StevenWoj on March 15, 2013

A lot of people feel the Eastern Conference Stanley Cup Final representative will come from the Northeast Division. Let’s see what the Devils’ jerseys might look like using these team’s templates as we continue the “Devils As…” series.

Devils As… The Montreal Canadiens:

Wow, just wow. Seeing the iconic Canadiens jersey with a Devils twist is very interesting. The torso stripe behind the logo and the logo with the black outline really make a statement in my mind.

The rest is very ho-hum. I think the sleeve stripes are a little too wide, but that is just my opinion. I doubt they would ever consider the torso stripe because it is so synonymous with the Canadiens.

 

Devils As… The Boston Bruins:

Another team that uses the laces near the neck, but since they are an Original Six, they get a pass. Another jersey where I love everything about it – the black on the shoulders, outlined in white to help it stand out.

I am also a big fan of the extra space between the stripes to help them stand out a little more. The only change I would make is the collar – I think it should be two colors, not just one, plus I would ditch the laces.

 

Devils As… The Toronto Maple Leafs:

And the Patch…

Just like the Red Wings, here is an Original Six team with a very simple jersey. Stripes, lettering, and neckline all in white, very basic.

The Maple Leafs do have a shoulder logo patch so I took this as a chance to bring back the old Devils Den Devil logo. I don’t know why the organization does not use this more. I know it might not be child friendly, but the team name is the Devils… there could be at least one non-kid friendly element to the team.

 

Devils As… The Ottawa Senators:

And the Patch…

This is a great example of what the jersey would look like if the team tried to keep up with the Jones’ so to speak. Unique striping patterns along the arm and armpit area are coupled with nothing on the torso. New Jersey gets another shout out with the “NJ” shoulder patches.

 

Devils As… The Buffalo Sabres:

Another team that forces the neck laces, it just gets jumbled up with the numbers on the front of the jersey and the oval-ish stripes that extend from the sleeve number down the torso. I am very unsure why that stripe and the grey in the armpit region are on this jersey, maybe they have some significant Buffalo meaning that I am unaware of. I do really dig the striping pattern on the sleeves and torso.

 

Just one division left… the one the Devils reside in. Let me know what you think so far!
