Yeah, that's a bold claim based on nothing. I don't think most teams had them available for a long time so it's hard to make a guess just by looking at people sitting in the stands. Plus if you already own a jersey, what's the incentive to buy a new one, regardless of whether they're the new Edge or the older ones? If they aren't making money (which we don't know), it could be from other factors instead of just, "they look ugly."

I wouldn't be surprised if that article is false. I can't imagine Reebok and the NHL scrapping these things after a month into the season. The difference with the NBA and the NHL is that you had the ball which directly affects the outcome of the game, whereas the uniforms are just uniforms. Plus it's easier to replace balls then an entire league with entirely different uniforms. I think if complaints keep up, we will definitely see modifications and "improvements" made to them, but I highly doubt that these will be scrapped.

Everyone yelled at me during the preseason when I said the players would alter the jerseys during the season. I guess I was not so wrong afterall!

Al's observant, but not enough so. They're very clearly the same RBK's with the ugly hemline being pinned up. You could see the outline of the rounded bottom when they were doing closeups in the locker room.
