We all love our team and many of us have opinions and ideas on how to change the Sens for the better. I'm interested in those ideas. Don't be constrained by things like salary cap and budget, we're just brainstorming here. It doesn't have to be on ice changes like "I'd bring in a power winger, a top six forward type" (but of course, it can be). It could be something incredibly functional like, "I would improve OCTranspo service to Scotiabank Place". Anything should be brought up and discussed in detail!
I have already posted about my interest in a Sens museum/arena tour and the next big change I would make would be to the uniforms. I want to bring back the original white jerseys. I feel like the sideways centurion logo is still the most recognizable Sens logo and that many fans feel that logo/design was classic. I still associate that jersey with the best moments of the franchise (Alfie's overtime winner against Buffalo to send us to the Cup Finals). Also, I think the current whites are fairly generic and the lines are too similar to Pittsburgh. I would love the heritage jersey to be a permanent feature of the Sens' look. I think they did a great job with the design (the nod to the past, modern updates, font choice) and I want to see them wear it in more games. However, I don't want the Sens to get rid of the red by any means. We may have come into the league wearing white and black but it is red I associate with this team's success. I don't have strong feelings about our current red jerseys nor did I really have strong feelings about the previous red. The previous red was somewhat silly (the stripes) but was distinct. I love the red because it's highly visible and I love when the Bank is a sea of red. But given the success of the heritage jersey, I would try a red jersey update. I would keep the forward facing logo (either design, like aspects of both) and add in other elements like horizontal stripes (personal bias, love horizontal stripes). I feel like bringing back the original whites, making the heritage jersey permanent and more visible, and updating the reds ensures not only that we have a great look, but that our past and present is connected visually.
What do you think? What changes would you make to the Sens organization to make our club better than ever?
