You have to understand the southwest to understand that the logo relects indian art. This is just bland.
I like the change a lot. The jerseys are much more classic-looking (especially the away lace-up jersey - oh wait, I guess that's the home jersey now, since home/away colours are swapped for every team starting this year), and the howling dog, while not super-amazing, is leaps and bounds ahead of the Post Modern Picasso Desert Dog they've been using.
They should've just done a total remake of the Johnny Cash-voiced coyote from the Simpsons.

If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
So, how many teams are using red and black this season?

Great. It's a good thing the uni designers in the NHL are so creative. Damn, I wish the Sabres had never made the change to the most generic color scheme in the NHL and I really wish Golisano would hurry up and change them back.
How many years have they been in Phoenix, anyway? Do they really need a new uni now? They're ought to be a minimum you have to use your first uniform for. Besides, I liked the old unis. As others have said, they certainly reflected their locale.
Are white uniforms going to be used on the road just for this season, or permanently? I remember them switching for, like, half a season a few years ago.
They have been in Phoenix for 8-9 years now. They are going for the new uniforms now because they are moving into their new arena in December, so they are taking on a "new identity" (maybe this means they will get past the 1st round of the playoffs).
From what I understand, all teams will wear white on the road this season....
Ehhh. They went generic -- too generic. The coyote head itself isn't bad, but does the color scheme have to be so plain? Right off the top of my head, I can think of a canine-themed minor league jersey that's far superior.
Of course, REALLY cool jerseys say "Moncton" on them.

If run properly, the NHL could be a very lucrative league, even in the United States. Look at how NASCAR has exploded under the right management and direction. I would like anything that would take the league out of Gary Bettman's hands.
