Current third jersey to become regular home jersey next year?

http://www.ontheforecheck.com/2010/3...rs-to-make-3rd
http://predators.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=507815
(Another article about the thirds when they were first revealed)

I've heard this from a couple sources and On The Forecheck just did an article about it. Personally, I like what we have now. I wouldn't mind seeing a few minor changes and though I am not a huge fan of the color yellow, I like that it's in our color scheme. Too many teams have blue/white/black, it's not that recognizable. You can barely see the checkerboard on the sleeves and bottom and at times it even looks black. I don't hate the jerseys at all, but I love having them as a third jersey. Perhaps if they make the checkerboard more obvious next year, I'd like it a little better. I'm also curious to see the changes to the away jersey. They say it's going to be a lighter version? Does that mean WHITE, or just a lighter blue?

Here's the jerseys from over the years. I really like the original one.

Old home, third, and away:


Current home, away, and third:



Some more realistic pictures...

And those checkers are much more obvious in photo than in real life.

I hope this is true, and I hope they revise the away jersies.

We've long had one of the ugliest sweaters in the league. Our current homes are better than they used to be, but still pretty bad.

I heard about this a few months back. Looks like the rumors are really heating up. The article sounds like it's a done deal

I love the new 3rds so I would definitely support this

Since I finally had the cash to buy my first regular home jersey this year I'm sure they'll change them and make the 3rd jerseys standard. It's all a conspiracy.

I'm okay either way, but I'm not buying a new jersey for a while. When your credit card actually screams you've gotta take it as a signal to slow down!

I want to think I heard a while back that the ownership was going to see how well the new 3rds sold.

...I also havent seen a 3rd jersey for sale in the pro shop nor anywhere else in a long time either...so I think it's safe to assume they've sold well.

They were at the proshop during the wild game, and Sport Seasons in Rivergate ....... $10 cheaper at Rivergate, tax incl.

And still too expensive for the average college kid

And for those who were around then, is that how well the mustards sold when they came out?

All for the switch. I love the thirds and will love the opposite of them, assuming they just swap the steele blue with white.

Almost bought a Wilson jersey the other night at the Stars game, but couldn't justify an extra $40 to buy it at Bridgestone vs. online.

I like the regular logo. I like the colors in it. And I like our blue jersey, also I like that the away jersey says Nashville on it so I would hope they keep that.

I would just rather keep the 3rds as a 3rd jersey.

I would love to see the thirds stay as thirds. I love the whites and I loved seeing them on home ice against Philly. I think it would be cool if the league changed it from light jerseys to be home again. As for the current home jersey, I really like it and I wouldnt mind keeping that at all.

Don't forget, the NHL switches up which jerseys are the homes/roads every few years or so. I would much rather us switch to the thirds as our homes, than our roads.

Ew. The thirds are way too bland for me. The logo sucks with only two colors in it. I'm not saying it needs the like 12 it has right now, but yellow has to be a part of the Preds color scheme in my opinion. Blue and white just isn't recognizable to me.

Whatever, I'll continue to wear my mustard until they come out with something even better.

The third jerseys are complete class. I love our regular jerseys, but the new thirds are a big step above imo. So I'd be very supportive of this change.

I agree. I like them, but they need a little gold in them. Current homes are perfect. Why mess with it?

I don't agree that they're "perfect," I think they look dated and are behind only the Buffaslug and Dallas "Arch" jersies as the worst in the league. The gold isn't the main reason for that, but it doesn't help.

I miss the mustard.

I'd be down with going to the current alts as homes.

I mean they're far from perfect IMO, but the current thirds are just soooooo bland to me. Blue, black, and white? Oh, that's never been done before. I like the design and striping for the third, it could just use a little more color.

I think the baby blue color in the third logo might look better with either the gold or orange. Just a little color to make the logo pop.

I really love those third jerseys. Not sure if I can resist buying one for much longer lol. I wouldn't have even a little bit of a problem seeing those become our home jerseys.

My recollection is that they sold very well, but possibly because they were less expensive than the regular homes. Not sure how they compared to the away.
