After their useful life they will go to the player. $10 a season for 4 years is $40, it could be $80 or $120 if you have multiple seasons per year. Granted, this isn't perfect because someone is out the upfront money.
2) Follow the advice above and have the jersey be the property of the player and figure out how a new player would get a sufficient match. If the jersey is like the Canucks and they radically change the look every few years you are SOL.
I like the penalty-fine idea, but it isn't clear who will own the jerseys. It may work to defray the cost. Of course, your most penalty-prone player may not like it!
Thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking of forking up the money myself and recover the cost over the next 2-3 years, but I'm engaged and I don't think my fiancÚ would go for it...
I'll talk to the guys and see what they think.
