A jersey expert will correct me on this, but we actually kept the same white jersey from 92-07 didn't we? Looking at the mockups I don't actually see a difference between the whites in the years.
Then the logo change and RBK switch happened and 15 years of a consistent look gone!
Design-wise, they're essentially the same jersey, yes. After they changed the wordmark in the logo and replaced it with the laurels, they didn't do much to it. They changed the size of the front logo (made it slightly smaller, making it easier for players - less bulky in the front of the sweater), and made some cosmetic changes to the patches themselves, but other than maker's marks (CCM branding), it's just about the same jersey.
