B's Third Jerseys have to go.......

Anyone know the stats as far as wins / losses when the B's where those fug-ly 3rd's? I know that it's got more to do WHEN they wear them(time-wise i.e. matinee match-ups) then the jerseys themselves.
I'd like to post another poll that will hopefully reflect that the current 3rd's should remain in Barnum & Baily's circus archived costume closets for the clowns than on the ice for an original 6 team.
I can't take looking at them anymore!!!!!!!!!
And where are the retro-jerseys they are supposed to break out of the moth balls ? I'd much rather see them as the new 3rd's than those disgusting mustard colored clown uni's!

I think the Bruins Road Black ( this year home ) jersey are the best looking in the NHL. It looks better against white ice and makes the team even look tougher. Anyone disagree?

I know this has been polled & talked about before, but now that the "celebrity posters" as well as the Bruins own web sniffers are on and lurking ,maybe this will help us rid of them,..... so....I thought I'd do another poll.........

I vote for the retro's instead on the current clown jerseys or at least the Black w / gold trim and get rid of them altogether.

Best jersey:

1) current puss-bear
2) retro's
3) Road Black
4) other -------

I voted other because I hate the 70's jerseys with the strings at the front and because with a bear logo and the great color scheme that they have they should be able to come up with something great if they just put some time into it.

I really like those gold retro jerseys... For some reason, I really love using gold as the dominant colour. Its just really hard to pull off...

a little off topic, but does anyone else think that on Neely night they should wear the black jerseys that he mostly used? The ones before the current jersey...

I'd like to see them introduce a third jersey version inspired by the old-fashioned sweaters:

Yeah......definately the pooh's got to go....although the yellow mustard color should be gold? Here's a "cartooney" lookin' spoked "B" with that color the Alumni wore in a game against a southshore firefighters game that didn't work..here's the page link : http://www.photoreflect.com/scripts/...um=0&adjust=-1
good to see "Pie" still skating!

Even the Ahl Utah grizzly's type of bear-head in place of pooh or just put the bear heads on the shoulders like in the 80's

I'm with you. The yellow should be the B's traditional gold.

My all time favorite jersey is the pre-Fleet away jersey (1980's-90s).

I also think I read somewhere that they'll be playing 5-6 games this season in their 1967 jerseys, which are probably the same/close to the ones from the cup years.

Pooh must go.

Best Bruins logo ever was on a hat I got (which was officially licensed) called "mad bear." You can see it by going to...

http://www.zhats.com/xline/index.asp and clicking Boston Bruins.

This logo, on a black jersey with gold trim, would be my ideal third jersey.

round about 1992 maybe, memory fuzzy but somethime around there, the O-6 teams all wore heritage jerseys, and the bruins went on to wear theirs quite a bit that season. it may have been a bit earlier than 92, but i have a few cards where bourque is in the jersey. it ia a white base with a b on the front- no spokes. it was rustic, simple and cool imo. they should wear that one. yellow is not a good base for a uni- never been a good one, never will.

That was an UGLY jersey. It was a series of dull yellow, black, and white stripes, and a big non-spoked b on the front. You still see people wearing them around games once in a while.

Wouldn't that be super-retro? Call it the "The Eddie Shore Collection".
Maybe it would inspire an end-to-end rush and an elbow to the face!

I agree 1000000000% with MJ! Those old time Jerseys would totally rejuvenate my interest in the Bruins. I don't care what anybody says...those things are sweeeet.

Edit: The only thing is, you'd probably have to replace the brown with black...otherwise the guys would have to get a new pair of pants, gloves, socks, and a new helmet to match. Then again, look at the Canucks third jersey...that has nothing to do with their usual colors. The thirds they wore the other night against Montreal looked like a spin off of the the old Whaler jerseys.

I wish there was a jersey version of the old sweater available to buy. I'd get one for sure...

I'd be interested to see what it would like with the standard pants and sox. I suspect it would look fine, but maybe they'd want to slightly adjust the color tone on the new jersey so it wouldn't clash...

It doesn't have to be an exact replica. The new 3rd jersey would be inspired by the old sweater design...

Is this the vintage jersey? I like this one too, but I think I like the 1926-27 sweater with the bear profile best.

Notice how the bear profile carried forward to the 1929-30 season:

That is something along the lines of what I was thinking. My vote goes for that.

My first choice is go with the retro 70's look.

Let these guys have a physical link to the glory days of this franchise.

If not ...at least change the Pooh Bear emblem with something ferocious.


( btw... I like laces on sweaters)

my vote is for anything but the GD "pooh bear"......
the more I see that old 1926 brown version with the bear in profile, I like it. That would really stand out as "Old-time hockey" in today's NHL.

But a true gold (not yellow) jersey with a spoked B would be cool too.......
as long as Pooh goes out the window for good.
