I find it kinda refreshing that they went ahead and made the simple gesture, without any real regard for revenue!
They could wear the proper jersey's for the game and never release them for sale at all. That would avoid any "revenue grab" nonsense from the equation altogether.

They have what the 70-71 uniforms should have looked like

If done authentic they would have a smaller CH, a tie up collar, and no name plates.

The part I find interesting is goalies 60 years ago found the need to protect their legs, yet not protect their heads.

They had no curves on their sticks at the beginning so pretty hard to lift the puck up high and hard.

I remember watching a interview with Pierre Boivin where he leaked that the goalies would be wearing brown pads and gloves for the vintage games AND the players would also be wearing brown gloves.

Halak had the brown pads on a couple of weeks ago in practice too.

The Yankees did the same thing this year.

And it's not like they made pyjamas of the other vintage jerseys and all that crap.

I think the last thing on the Habs mind is being seen as a "revenue grab" corporation.

Then I bet there'd be a crowd of people upset because they want to own that particular jersey!
Seriously, I agree with you.. it does seem kinda lazy. But I'm still going to go ahead and play devil's advocate anyway.

I'm pretty sure this is what they'll do

This equipment is awesome!
I knew Price had some, but now with Halak, I can't wait to see them in action

And the numbers would have been dark blue with red trim. No white involved in the numbers at all.

There's now way the last game was a "heritage jersey" night. They simply wore their road uniform at home.

not going to read the whole thread, but in case it hasnt been posted yet, this equipment will only be for the vintage games. The whole team will be wearing vintage "look" equipment.

Why not have white pads with a "net" print on them. That way players would have trouble differenciating between the pads and open net maybe a little. That or have one solid red dot on them because it is well known fact that eyes will automatically look at a dot on a solid colour background and you usually shoot where you are looking.

Gotta be strategic on this stuff.

I saw someone using pads like that during the world championships last spring, love the vintage look.
