Good grief...

For the sake of the hockey brotherhood, I hope that your gear (especially your socks) are no worse than Canada's.

I like the uniform itself and what it's supposed to accomplish but who ever came up with the color scheme should be thrown off a cliff.


Maybe someday they'll bring this tech to the NHL, just keep the original design.

It's not great, especially the socks, but its better than that RBK **** gear they got now, if Gagne was wearing an RBK helmet he would look like an ass clown even more. At least Nike/Bauer Helmets and gear are decent looking.

I don't have a clue what you're talking about because Reebok's equipment is slick as hell.

Don't worry, Reebok bought The Hockey Company wich includes Koho, CCM and Jofa, and they put Koho a lil' away (or maybe even completely) to produce under Reebok's name, so that mean that designers are the same but know work for Reebok. But as far sa Jofa is concer, i've never heard that they are gone. Look at what Nike did when they bought Bauer, and Bauer equipements weren't bad at all after .

Jofa is desinging the protective gear for RBK IE. Shoulder pads, shin pads, and so on. KOHO has its own website, if you go to jofa.com it shoots you to RBK.com, I'll just stick to Itech, Bauer, and Graf and shut my mouth

I like the jersey, it's old school like in the 1950's. The socks are a little weird. Is it the style or the pattern that people don't like? I mean it's a white jersey with a leaf on it, it's not like they put a mariner on it.

Some of the comments out of camp were pretty funny. Doan figures it's a cost saving measure - teams won't need to provide garters and tape, because the socks are like leotards. Someone else mentioned that the tight jersey might be something you wear to a bar, but not to play. Nash couldn't get his jersey on, so he wore his practice jersey!

I think you'll see version #2 - this one didn't fly with the players.

A poster on another board mentioned he saw Gags and Tanguay yesterday and asked what they thought of the jerseys. Said both rolled their eyes.
