Appearance on ice factors in... but the team can't account for how a person who is 5'2 and bigger around than any goalie in pads is going to look wearing a replica. Every fanbase has people who are well beyond goalie cut and nothing they do is going to be flattering for them and serve its primary function.

Let's be honest ... our fans have complained about the black and blues, the mustards, the current yellows, and the spaceman silver on the 98-11 sweaters. The piping laden edge jerseys have appearance issues, even the gamers. If there are any hockey gods remaining, Reebok loses the contract when it expires in a couple of years.
