Enough of the little snippets, the San Jose Sharks revealed their new-look uniforms on Tuesday. Truth be told, they don't look much different than the previous ones.

The changes, while minor, still exist as the Sharks site points out.

The home jersey look is clean, focusing on the Sharks primary color, Pacific Teal. Orange accents were removed from the lettering and numbering as well as the arm stripes. The classic crest logo will still be the centerpiece of the jersey.

To complete a classic look, neckline lacing was added and neckline striping was removed.

Clean, classic, bold and designed for performance, the Next Wave jerseys will help take the Sharks to the next level this season and many to come.

I admit I'm biased because I simply love the Sharks logo and color scheme, but this is a pretty good looking jersey. I like the removal of some of the orange but it still has an accent in the sweater. The removal of the piping gives it a cleaner look and they get the always popular lacing on the top of the jersey. Everybody's doing that one these days (again).

Not to mention a few things were removed to make the sweater lighter for the players. So, you know, the Sharks will be faster this season. Or something.

To top it all off they come with the added benefit of promising to take the Sharks to the next level. So Stanley Cup, here they come!
