Dallas could have new uniforms by next season, says owner Gaglardi

Sounds like the Stars could be sporting a new look in 2013-14.

That’s the scuttlebutt out of Dallas thanks to news first reported by Stars website writer Mark Stepneski, who said team officials saw mockups of possible new uniforms on Monday.

“The specifics of the uniforms are top secret,” Stepniski tweeted. “So don’t ask.”

But on Wednesday, owner Tom Gaglardi was pressed for comment during a radio interview on The Ticket 1310AM.

Host Norm Hitzges brought up the idea of new duds, which led to the following conversation:

Hitzges: There are rumors that the Stars might be designing a new uniform. True?

Gaglardi: That’s true, yes.

Hitzges: Any tips?

Gaglardi: It’s been speculated that we’re doing that. I think our jerseys have taken an interesting…(laughs) it’s been an interesting team, because we’ve had a history of changing our jerseys quite often.

We end up in a place now with our current jerseys — which I quite like, I think they’re very simple and attractive and modern — but a couple of things bother me. One is that we’re the only one of 30 teams that don’t wear their primary logo on their chest.

I don’t like that, I’m a bit of a hockey purist and that would be the one criticism I have of our current jersey.

[There’s also] a bit of a lack of color with our current kit. So we’re looking at all those things, up to and including if we want to modify our current logo as well.

Gaglardi told Hitzges there’s no impending change for this year — “the earliest you might see something is in the 2013-14 season,” he said — and that this process of logo/uniform review was underway prior to him taking control of the club in November 2011.

    If there even is a season next year. Who cares anymore by this point?

    bring back the old black and green star jerseys!

    It had better be the Mooterus.

    They have great colors, but the worst jerseys in the league. Add green as the primary, go easy on the black, and make the gold more prominent.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they adopt the Cowboys colors

    Gaglardi’s right, just having “Dallas” across the front is tragically boring. Hopefully he’s heading back in the direction of the full-torso star they used in ’97.

    Next season, next season what the hell about this season!!!

    A better idea would be for Dallas to completely change their name to Dallas ___________. That way Minnesota can finally get arid of the hideous name Wild and logo. Minnesota can go back to the old North Stars logo with the N and Star.

      I agree. Perhaps the Dallas “Lone Stars” with red, white and blue uniforms. The Minnesota North Stars logo is classic. And, if you can live with Red and White Sox, why not North and Lone Stars…..

      it will never happen but the North Star jerseys were in my opinion right up there with the Blackhawks and Nordiques. I truly hate Norm Green and hope he die’s of gonorrhea and rots in hell

        Dying if gohnerrea is too kind.

    good, make more ugly ass jerseys for your own team, and give us back our gorgeous Green and Yellow North Stars jerseys…
