I dunno about that. I don't see why a traditional fan won't like Reebok on the jersey. Yes, I know your case about how CCM is a traditional hockey company/been in the game forever, but I see no reason why a traditional fan wouldn't buy a jersey because of the Reebok or think twice without the CCM as they are hockey fans to begin with. The casual fans, which we have tons of here in FLA, will definatley cause the market to get a bit stronger for hockey jerseys with RBK IMO, but a traditional hockey fan is a traditional hockey fan, it doesn't matter to a traditional fan IMO.
At least Reebok is experienced in making liscensed apparell. Be thankful it's not Sean John or Ecko as the league was pretty desperate prolly and if money was thrown at CCM by those two to get the jerseys, it just might have happenned.
