Because they want the revenue from new jersey sales, so they need to trot out a new one every year for fans to rush out and buy.

There should be a rule preventing teams from changing jerseys for a 10 year period.

As Leaf fans we're lucky because all of our third jersey's have at least been pretty nice, but this has been the cause of some of the godawful third jersey's we've seen around the league over the years.

Has anyone seen the Islanders new jerseys this year? Brutal.

This new jersey is better than the last one

the last one was cursed for us, cause we would lose when we wear them

Didn't it use to be the opposite? Prior to the '05 lockout, we'd win whenever we'd wear those sweaters.

Or am I wrong on that?

The Crown has nothing to with the Leafs. The Marlies derive their name from Toronto Marlboros, which in turn is named after British royalty, the Duke of Marlborough.

Bingo

edit: The "new" one is a dim shade of blue and has the crappiest logo ever. It's complete garbage.

Honestly they should make the old veined leaf the official main logo. I'll be the first to admit that the post-modern minimalist 70s leaf looks like garbage.

Our current 3rd is absolutely beautiful. I have one that's blank. Still don't know who to get on it. Was going to get Schenn but he got traded like 3 weeks after I bought it.

Our current third is amazing. Best leafs jersey we've had since the late 90's thirds.

Can someone just post a quick pic of the alternate jersey? I want to see if I'm seeing the right one.

Our third jersey is sweet, although I'd like to see the current white road jerseys replace with:
