wont look good with equiptment, but great for fans to wear.

So it's 50/50 for me. i hate how traditional jerseys are going to get butchered because of the new style.

I've got news for you. The jersey hasn't always looked the same.

The logo was made larger in the 90's and centered along the blue line on the jersey. I hated it when they first did it. Looked stupid to me. But now I can't tell the difference.

If the team were to put on jerseys from the 70s, 60s, 50s, 40s, 30s....they would all be very different.

The jersey Rocket Richard wore was made of WOOL and had strings by neckline. They also used to be very blocky.

Stuff changes all the time, we just like to imagine that they don't. Sing along with me: "Change is necessary and change is good."

I don't get why so many people think the style will change. Yes, the fabric will be different and it's going to be tighter, but they can have the same style on that. And if they change it and it looks good, then no problem. So let's just wait and see what the actual jersey will look like before going crazy with the petitions and whatnot...

Looks fine to me, just tighter. I don't care at all. And you could have our style on these jerseys.

I hate them. Looks kind of stupid and as a person who plays hockey, they look to tight I don't see how they can allow for more movement.

I reserve judgement until I see them in action. ATM I have no reason to hate the move. As far as merchandizing goes tho, I doubt the current jerseys will go out of fashion with the fans. I know quite a few fans catering a beer belly that wouldn't look their best in a "tight" jersey. Might be popular with the younger crowds tho. And althought I find it extremely sexy when a girl wears nothing but my baggy old jersey, it's hardly an adequate outfit for a game. If they make girl sized tight jerseys it might take my concentration away from the game a little, but when the product on the ice causes drowsiness, there might be eye candy in the stands.

Yep, I'm convinced you guys are looking at this with the wrong angle ! Tight jerseys have untapped potential.

Good way to pussify the league and make any guy that wants to buy a jersey look queer.

Bettman's next innovation is that instead of hockey pants & socks they will wear assless leather chaps...
