New jerseys?

So there have been some talks about the Blues getting a new jersey. A jersey has been leaked, but this jersey looks like a SLU Billiken Jersey. Your thoughts? Anyone want to get rid of our current thirds?

That was a fake, it's confirmed there will be no changes for next season.

Report: New uniforms won't happen in 2013
"We now have another Blues beat writer saying that any uniform change will not happen in time for the 2013-14 season. From Andy Strickland via his blog True Hockey:
Despite the rumors the Blues have no plans of changing their uniforms next season. There are deadlines in place to make this happen which have already passed. This process takes time when you consider the production, marketing, color scheme, design, trademarks etc…It makes sense. If the Blues were going to make changes for next season, they would've been on Reebok's list in January. Since they're not, any "whispers" are probably looking further into the future — say 2014-15 and beyond. Still something to keep an eye on anyway."

I hope we go back to a classic look. like these.

Keep our logo the same as it is now, and the color scheme too, and just go old school.

Since we are on the topic, here are a few jerseys I mocked up. They are all inspired or modified from previous jerseys.

That's a Columbus third jersey with different lettering. Looks beer league.

That jersey literally "leaked" like a year or two ago...

Considering how bad the jerseys are right now and how the team always needs money, I'm surprised we aren't getting new jerseys anytime soon. My hopes are for next season...

How bad the jerseys are?! you say it so matter-of-factly. I have been creepin on these boards for a while now and i hate how posters on here hold these outdated retro jerseys in such high regard. They look old and were ushered away with for a reason (see Senators, North Stars, and Jets.)

Don't get me wrong, i'm big fan of the nostalgia appeal, but i think it should be tempered a bit. How is a team supposed to sell a jersey in 2013 from a design that was produced 25+ years ago?

To me, I don't like them one bit, never have. The vertical stripes, the way the "C" and "A" overlaps the shoulder yolk, it's just a mess of a jersey.

While I mentioned nothing about the older jerseys, I will say that the previous model is much better than current ones. That was close to perfect for a Blues jersey and one of the best in the league.

Simple, traditional, and stands the test of time. If there was ever a third jersey needed, use the trumpet patch on the jersey.

I think that would be a disaster.

I really hope the Blues are working on new jerseys to debut after this season. Blues uni's can be among the best in the league with a return to something more classic (lose the vertical piping).

Another good concept from a while back:

I am not a fan of shoulder yokes on home jerseys, but overall this is a sharp set.

I like these jerseys a lot, but I just don't see the Blues going with a retro/traditional jersey. I think they will go with more of a hybrid (whether we like it or not).

As long as the blues never switch the yellow to gold (a la the Rams), I will be happy

These are the concepts I've always liked the best. It's a modern touch to traditional.
