I put this in the Flyers' Camp discussion thread, too, but since there was a question within this thread, here is more info...

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=537840

Quote:
VOORHEES, N.J. -- Only the Philadelphia Flyers could kick off the season with a ceremonial slash.

But that's what Flyers coach Peter Laviolette, GM Paul Holmgren, President Peter Luukko and a few other dignitaries did to open training camp Friday at Flyers Skate Zone, using hockey sticks to cut a black and orange ribbon in front of a crowd of about 200.

The day also was designed to introduce the club's new road jersey, which is identical to the one the Flyers wore at last season's Winter Classic.

"The reason we made the move was the overwhelming response to it from the fans when we wore it for the Winter Classic," Flyers Senior Vice President of Business Operations Shawn Tilger told NHL.com. "Everyone loved it. It was more, 'Why not listen to the fans'"

The jersey is white with an orange swirl down each sleeve and an orange band around the waist. On the back, the white letters are laid on a black nameplate and the numbers on the back are orange with a black outline. The only thing missing from Jan. 1 in Boston is the Winter Classic patch.

Flyers captain Mike Richards was on hand to model the jersey, marking the first time he's appeared publicly since the end of the Stanley Cup Final.

"It's nice to get back into the swing of things," Richards said. "Things like this means you're ramping up toward the season. It's nice to be back."

'Why not listen to the fans'"


The fans were *****ing and complaining about the last switch, the whole time both uniforms were in use.

I don't recall the captain's C being white in the Winter Classic though.

That photo isn't actually from the Winter Classic though. That's against the Leafs, the regular season game when we wore the jersey at homed. Doesn't change anything about the C being orange on that particular jersey last year though:




Edit: Apparently the Flyers are setting a trend in jersey design. Buffalo unveiled their new third jersey today and it's got a yellow nameplate on a blue background.

Ewww, that third jersey is just plain ugly. Love the colours (should be their regular colours) but the jersey itself blows.

Hey guys, any thoughts on a keeper team I have? I'm hoping to contend this year, 16 team league.

Frolov-Savard-Brown
JVR-M. Koivu-Briere
Whitney-Gomez-Hornqvist
Sturm-Cullen-Recchi
O'Sullivan-Pouliot-Dupuis

Martin-Wideman
Seidenberg-Morris
Yandle

Bryzgalov
Halak
Biron

Top 5 Prospects
C. Wilson
Bernier
Ennis
Eller
Fowler

I don't have any elite guys unless Savard stays healthy, but I think I have some nice strength in depth, feel like I could have 9 or 10 guys crack 50 points, I kind of like O'Sullivan's bounceback potential.

I think Mikko Koivu is going to have a huge year.

Just wish he wasn't on the Wild. I feel like my team could go pretty far or bust pretty hard, hoping some gambles pay off.

Yeah, I don't place much value on D, you can usually find a 20 point D knocking around and most of the 40 point D's will cost you a premium.

I figure if I'm lucky, Martin/Wideman/Yandle will give me 40 each, Seidenberg around 30.

I had Grebeshkov but he's gone now.

Martin should be fine if hes healthy. Yandle should be 35, but I wouldnt put any weight in Wideman on Florida.

Bryz and Halak is a good 1 2 punch. Im hoping good things from Frolov, I drafted him too.

Here is my keeper team so far(draft still on going)

Frolov-Datsyuk-Semin
Filatov-Spezza-Hossa
Booth-M Koivu-Franzen

E Johnson-Gonchar
Timonen-Visnovsky

Vokoun
Turco
Niittymaki

I've never been part of a 16 team league, but I don't place much into defense either. It's easily the least valuable position, especially if the league isn't too deep stats-wise (for instance, if blocked shots were counted a lot of d-men would have more value).

Were the white and regular blues used last year? Or was the white the slug logo?

Glad they changed back, the "slug" jerseys were awful.

Picture 16. Either Hartnell tied the hair back or a lot of it is gone.

I believe they had the slug last year and the blue old school one was their 3rd. Don't hold me to that though.

I'm pretty sure that's how it was. Looking at the pics, the description say "unveiling jerseys" (plural) so I think they completely re-did them. About time.

This here. They had the Slugallo logo last year which is now gone. Thank your deity of choice. Now the Buffalo Sabres jersey now features some actual Sabres on their primary logo. Imagine that!

looks tied to me. it could be shorter than last year, but definiteky not gone.

I love our team so much, I kinda forgot lately. I really wish we had Gagne and a goalie though. (hopefully one of the goalies surprises me)

Kirill Kabanov was late to practice today, and apparently it's not the first time. Looking wise that we passed up on him. Especially after he complained about us being a bunch of goons.
