Are we NHLers who can afford to purchase a whole new set of equipment if one item dies and we cannot replace it with the same coordinated color as before?

Don't people just buy basic-colored stuff they like and it'll all match anyway?

If you're in a beer league, you get a new jersey each season, are you really supposed to buy all new gear to match that season's jersey? I assume that is not the case...
In beer/rec league, yeah, I understand people not wanting to purchase new equipment each year to match. I wouldn't do that either.

But people that are playing serious hockey, it looks pretty stupid if you have like green jerseys and you wear red gloves and a red helmet (as an example). Players tend to play on the same rep, junior etc. team for more than one season anyways, so it's not like you have to get new equipment each year.
