Any speculation on what direction the Hawks may be going for their jerseys? What would you like to see?

No idea, I am pissed HBO is not doing 24/7 this year. Lots of options for throwbacks. Remember a cream (off white like the Rangers WC) one with black and red shoulder yokes and a similar crest to the 2009 WC. I think that would look nice.

They're apparently still going to do a behind-the-scenes series... just not with HBO.

It will probably be done by the same people who do this for NBCSN and NHLN when they get a chance to moonlight away from p***.

I'd like to see the Caps wear something like their old Eagle jerseys.

Agreed on the Caps, I would love to see these jerseys:

The Hawks have already rolled out throwbacks for an event like this, I would almost like them to come up with a throwback-inspired new design, like the Red Wings did last year. Their only other option as I see it is to go with a white throwback like this one:

but it seems kind of plain.

Should be interesting to see. Wonder if that mark is the primary crest or a shoulder patch.

The W reminds me of the W Hotel logo though!

Something tells me it's going to look similar to what the Spitfires have worn in years past but with that cheesedick circle crest.

I was hoping for just home version of there alternate. Guess that's not happening

I read somewhere on Twitter referencing that 'W' logo to an old Washington Senators (baseball team) logo. I haven't had time to research for some of their uniforms but that would be an interesting direction if they go that route.

It looks to be the Washington Senators logo.

But the Senators are remembered more for their many years of mediocrity and futility, including six last-place finishes in the 1940s and 1950s.

Quite appropriate given how much effort Leonsis' Caps have put into carrying on that legacy.

The Senators were the target of the slogan "First in war, first in peace, last in the American League".

Not a fan of those at all. They look too much like Vancouver's Heritage jerseys.

They definitely should've just gone with the red classic.

I'm so-so with these jerseys. Not terrible but nothing great either.

Also not a fan of a team wearing jerseys or throwbacks inspired by teams that have no association with them, but happened to play in the same town. Yes, I am looking at you Ottawa and Vancouver.

The close up of a teaser shot with a 'C' on the chest appears to be stacked lettering. Could be wrong, though

A mix of the Vancouver Heritage jerseys and the '92 All Star jersys. Not a fan.
