2013/2014 Jerseys

Hey guys I'm new to the board and from the UK.
just wondered whether there has been any mention of new jerseys anytime soon? I'm looking at getting myself the home jersey with landy and the "c" but dont want to spend too much if the jersey is likely to change.
I know you guys say that there's never alot of info from the organization, bit any insight would be appreciated.

thanks!

Usually when these changes happen, all 30 teams make changes, not just individual clubs. I haven't heard anything so I would assume you're safe to buy.

Reebok's jersey contract is expiring in 2015.

not necessarily. Isn't Dallas changing to a Red/White/Blue color scheme for next year.

I would love to see the Avs bring back the old jersey designs on a perminent basis. Except keep the Blueberries. Those are superior to the old Burgundy 3rds.

I like the Burgandy 3rds better, much better. The blueberries are alright though.

I think the avs should bring in a black jersey. Maybe with the big foot paw as the primary logo. Nothing more intimidating than a team of black jerseys.

I'm pretty sure he means the logo or colorway the Avs have, not the style of the jersey itself from reebok.

Teams change those individually, but there hasn't been any word on it. It's doubtful, but the Avs sure do need a change IMO. Especially that piping going down the sides, that cut off the C on Landy's jersey.

If they announced anything it'd likely be in the summer or right before training camp.

We'd have to change our draft philosophy of taking 5'10 180 centers then

But to be fair, he got rocked by a guy in a black jersey!! I personally just love black jerseys and find them intimidating. Even if duchene and olver are wearing them.

I think the only ones who would strike fear into the hearts of the competition would be hejda and bordeleau.

Downie and Wilson would look mean in black.

Everyone always complains about other teams who adopt black.

We're better off waiting until the contract expires and we re-sign our stars, announce the new modified jerseys and people start buying Lando, Varly and whomever this pick turns out to be.

I'd like to see a clean design though, the piping needs to go and the logo needs to be shrunk just a bit.

Here is a pretty cool concept,



Would love if there was some burgundy in there to give it some life.

I think if you put some burgandy in there somewhere, those would make some great NEW jerseys! My hats off to whomever made 'em

I love the jersey design, especially the mountain bottom, but I'd prefer to keep our current color scheme

Can I make one other request that will never happen. Can we get rid of that little arrow at the top of the C? It just seems measly.

The captains C should look strong, and carry weight like Calgary's and all the other teams that just have that simple strong font, rather than this fancy little C with an arrow shooting upwards.

That would be for a new jersey style/cut template, not for a jersey design.

I like both myself, but I think they could use a minor tweak to be better.

No, we don't need a black jersey.

So we all agree....let's get some Burgundy in there.

Does someone want to be in charge of it? I call "Not it"!

Our current jerseys are so bad... the fact that there is a random black line going through the C/A patch sort of tells the story.

They need to make them more like the third jersey without those damn lines... the third is OK, but not a big fan of the blue.

Just go back to the old jerseys. There was nothing wrong with them.

I like this one better than SEPH's


Throw a bigfoot patch on the shoulder and the puck silhouette around the "A" and I'd buy multiples of both home & road.

The league-wide thing isn't quite true either. http://www.icethetics.com has a blog on all the changes and rumors every year. This year FLA and EDM retired their 3rds, Tampa got a new 3rd, Dallas is looking to re-style soon as mentioned earlier. The Kings and Canucks did throwbacks this year, too. Canucks did a Millionaires jersey in March and LA wore their purple throwbacks a few times. I'd be happy with a throwback for just one game, but I'd be thrilled with a wholesale change. I love the design above. Not just going back to the old designs (which I love and would love if they returned to) but elements of the old with some new twists, too. Check out Icethetics.com. Pretty cool site.

I see nothing wrong with the blue 3rd, that's why I bought one! The home and road jerseys could use an update without changing the color scheme. Burgundy, steel blue, black, silver, white. I think that and the logo should never be touched.

What I think they did right with the Reebok jerseys is that they didn't make any big noticeable changes. I'd like the new jerseys to do that. "It's the same but different"
