Why does it have to be a throw-back design? Our jerseys haven't really changed all that much over the years, so the throw back is kind of meaningless.

Why not do something new?

I think a Broad Street Bullies themed jersey w/ the logo like this:

would be extremely dope.

Especially when you consider all the bad blood in this rivalry between the Flyers and the Rangers.
You're serious? You want that junior high crap instead of a classic and clean look?

I would love to see a Remember the Spectrum style jersey, I love the one with the colors on the shoulder/arms.

I would also totally support a Quakers replica'd jersey, or as a long shot, something based on this:


For those wondering what this is, it was an artist's rendition of a Philadelphia hockey team before the name was chosen, originally published with an article stating that Philly had been chosen to host an NHL franchise.

Much better symbolism.
But after the changes Holmgren has made the past few weeks, maybe going down is actually more appropriate...

me too. it should be on every jersey. that guy that painted the rendition of the philly team jersey must of used a math teacher from the 40's as a model. tough lookin s.o.b. i think the tony the tiger's are the best so far though.

While I'll concede that the Phantoms have had some nice 'special' jerseys over the years, IMO none of those were... I think maybe the Philadelphia Blazers tribute would be a good choice, as would the Quakers one hat has drawn raves since rumored and PhotoShopped.

Also IMO a Ramblers throw back jersey tribute would be good to give a nod to the early Philly hockey team(s) that existed in one form or another below the NHL/AHL level... the team that the Philly hockey fans attended before The Expansion.

First time I heard the Quakers jerseys called the Tony The Tigers... LOL I like that nickname.

something like this could be cool, with "FLYERS" arched on front in place of "RAMBLERS"

It'd be cool if it were black, with cream shoulders and bottom stripe, orange letters on the front, cream circles on the sleeves with orange numbers, cream nameplate on the back with orange letters, and orange back numbers as well.

maybe add a tie-down as well.

They've had many jerseys... this is one from 1964


EDIT: Notice the similarity with the mock up jerseys when the Flyers franchise was announced (posted by someone earlier in the thread)

WHA Philadelphia Blazers...





...Bernie wearing an alternate color scheme (below)



...The Phantoms wore a tribute version for a game (below).



I like the Phantom one.

You have to think that it must be pretty cool for the guy that designed the mock-up to have his design made into an actual jersey

Was going to say the exact same thing. No way who we want to pay tribute to, this is still the Flyers, and that logo has to be front and center anytime they're on the ice.

Kudos to the guy who photoshopped that concept. He's fooled a lot of people. Right now it's nothing more than a concept. I can't believe people still think it's legit

Goes without saying that whichever jersey they choose has to be adjusted to reflect the Flyers name or logo... or maybe Philadelphia (in some form)... I didn't mean to ever suggest otherwise.

The sleeve numbers are are interesting idea. I will say I like that it's black. People complain about the amount of black jerseys in the game, but if there are select teams who should be allowed to wear black, we are one of them.

Nice work there... But the way I see it, going with so much black, I just as soon like to see the current Orange converted to black, keeping the Flying 'P' and maybe the WC patch on one shoulder and another type patch on the other to keep it even... OR maybe the name across the front and the Flying 'P' on either shoulder and the WC patch opposite the Captain's letter as you have it there... OR maybe Philadelphia on the chest and the Flying 'P' on the shoulders... But always having the stripe going completely down to the cuff as the current jerseys are.

I'd like to avoid shoulder patches at all costs, if like last time we only get a Premier/Replica with no authentic jerseys offered at retail, the shoulder patches are the same screened on twill that we hate so much with NHL.com names/numbers.

But would that be the case with special WC jerseys? Last time the jersey was made entirely different than the regular season Premiers and the patch on the chest was the real McCoy.

I agree with you about not liking the screened on crap... But damn I just hate to see the tail wag the dog by designing the WC jersey to avoid Reebok and the manufacturers going the cheap route to squeeze another dollar or two from us... Shoot, they'll be making a fortune from all the Flyers fans buying them, and the actual cost of going with real patches on a special jersey would have to be minimal.
