Welcome to the "Re-Imagining The NHL" project created by Cole Jones. Cole has been great enough to allow Days of Y'Orr to post his idea on different teams with his spin on them. You can follow Cole on Twitter. Please feel free to comment on the team below. Feel free to read the official announcement of the project here.
Finally, the team you've all been asking for. Ever since the project started, I got a lot of requests for the Bruins. Well, here they are! If you haven't checked out our other teams, visit the Re-Imagining the NHL team page
. The team page will be updated daily with every team we update. So before we take a look at the uniforms, lets take a look at Cole's comments on the Bruins.Cole's comments:
First off, the most noticeable change with this team is the color scheme. My favorite color is brown, and not many sports teams can pull it off. I think the Boston Bruins are one of the few who can, as it's a color they've used at times in their history. I loved their winter classic uniforms so much that I used that color scheme as a base for the shades I ended up chosing. Brown replaces black. Ivory replaces white. It gives the team a vintage look that I don't feel is forced. I also decided to use the rounded collars I used on my Habs concept on all three uniforms.
I fully expect the alternate jersey to be lambasted by everyone who sees it, but it's a vision I've had since I started this project on day one. It has historical grounds, and just simply gives off a very "Vintage Bruins" look to me. The fact that I used #2 is simply a coincidence, but this jersey evokes the pain and death that Eddie Shore
doled out to his opponents. Hate if you must, but I'd buy the shit out of it.
After the jump, the Bruins...
