    Not "we". The NHL GM's.

    Bob says the NHL is trying to keep these babies under wraps.

    Most likely because they are embarrassed. Atleast they should be.


    Boooooooooo to new jersey styles.

    What is RBK Hockey thinking? If they're anything like Team Canada's new jerseys, then that's horrible. :shakehead

    Are these new RBK jerseys going to be like third jerseys or are they going to replace all traditional team uniforms like in the CFL?

    If they are anything like Bob McKenzie described on TSN that would be a horrible decision.. Look like lane swimmers instead of hockey players

    Ridiculous. :shakehead
     
  11. Rumours I've heard are that nothing will be sewn onto the jerseys... not even the logos. It'll all be pressed on, in an effort to make the jerseys lighter. At the World Juniors, at least USA and Norway had pressed on numbers, which obviously offer a much less quality item if you collect authentic/game worn jerseys.

    As mentioned, the only reason RBK and the NHL will love these new jerseys is because of the almighty dollar, and a lot of them. The players will hate them, the fans will hate them, and depending on what they do to the replica jerseys you buy in stores, retailers will hate them.

    Only Gary Bettman would do this.

    I have never heard of someone profiting off of a product everyone in an industry hated.

    Once again, these jerseys make absolutely no sense.
     
  17. Nah man, Bettman's gone too far this time. A puddle of puke isn't enough to give me satisfaction. I'd leave him a steaming pile of retribution under his cars windshield wipers, and empty a naturally processed two-four into the wiper fluid tank.

    They pay the NHL huge money for rights. All that matters to bettman is that he makes money. Reebok can fall flat on there face for all he cares.

    Ah youth. Staunch traditionalists, always afraid of change.

    Colour me crazy, but I'll judge *after* seeing them.
     
  20. Why does everybody seem to think this is Gary Bettman's idea? This was RBK's idea, and Bauer/Nike got to it first with the IIHF jerseys. The NHL (again... NHL, meaning the board of governors) is in it for the money, and they have no reason to not be.

    Albeit that these RBK jerseys are going to suck because they are tucked into some ******ed pants, the new nike jerseys with some tweaks to them (baggier) are something that can be implemented and respected. They are lightweight, can be worn normally by a fan without looking like a fat idiot and are decent looking. :dunno:

    No kidding. I don't expect to like them but its shocking how fast people react to something they know nothing about.

    Note to Bettman: Noone will buy longsleeve football jerseys.
