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.
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.
Would love if there was some burgundy in there to give it some life.
E: Talking as a 3rd jersey.
I think if you put some burgandy in there somewhere, those would make some great NEW jerseys! My hats off to whomever made 'em

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"
