New sweaters/jerseys for the 2013-2014 season
"Reebok lists new home/road set for Canadiens

Hold everything. That's sacrilege, right? Could the MONTREAL CANADIENS really be thinking about altering their classic home and road jerseys in some way? You wouldn't think so, but there they are on Reebok's list.

In all likelihood, the changes won't be significant. If anything, it'll probably be nothing more than to add a lace-up collar like they used to have in the old days. I can't imagine changing any colors or striping uniform elements that have almost never been touched. Ever.

It's been a long time since the Habs made any real changes to their uniforms. The red shoulder yoke was added to the white jersey in 1941. They went with a blue chest stripe and no shoulder colors for a few years from 1944 to 1947 before going back to the design we know today.

And as for the red jersey, it has remained exactly the same since the start of the NHL in 1917 back when hockey sweaters were actual sweaters. And for whatever it's worth they had the lace-up collar going from 1941 to 1975. (All that info gathered from NHLUniforms.com, by the way.)"

Looks like we are getting a new uniforms for next season. Guessing the change won't be too drastic. Thoughts?

I wouldn't worry too much. The Habs brand belongs to the Habs, not Reebok. If the uni's are anything but classic Habs material it will never see the light of day.

The Canadiens' sweater is pretty much sacred to any real hockey fan. There is absolutely no way the new jerseys will have any major modifications. If the jersey is too different the Habs' management will never agree to it.

Yeah, I'd be shocked. It'd be akin to a major change to the Hawks' Indian Head sweaters. Just not seeing it happening.
