...

Would absolutely love a gold base color for the thirds. Slap a tie on that golden oldie and call it a day.

I'm a little worried and a little excited.

EDIT: Oh I guess there are no thirds this year. Lame.

Yeah, this is my fear. There's not much they could do to make them better, and a metric ton they could do to completely ruin them.

Are the road jerseys allowed to have anything other than white as the background color?

Admittedly, I would prefer color. I don't like the white Bruins jerseys.

I would be happy if they brought back something along the lines of the 3rd jerseys they had back in 91-92 (or around there) during their 75th anniversary season:

Bruins were the first team that had a third sweater - 57 years ago

Are we going to start wearing White Home Jerseys again and dark on the road?

Love the current home jerseys ... especially the White-Black-Gold numbers and letters.

Gary Bettman's attempt at appealing to a broader market... Strange choice of logo.

Of the Original Six, the Bruins current uniforms are the WORST! All the other Original Six uniforms are just that, classic ORIGINAL SIX. The current B's uniforms are good for some team like Winnipeg.

Bring back the Bruins uniforms worn from 1977-78 though 1995. The classic Original Six uniforms that were worn before Jeremy Jacobs turned this franchise into a Winnie The Pooh disaster!

"Hello - Mr. Jacobs this is the NHL - would the Bruins be interested in having Adidas restyle the Bruins jerseys for the upcoming season?"....

Mr Jacobs - "Hell no, we are an Original 6 franchise with a storied history - we dont want some soccer themed jersey"....

NHL - "OK, thats fine Mr. Jacobs. We thought you would like to sell a few more jerseys with the new look"...

Mr Jacobs - "Wait, I would make a few more dollars?....Sounds great sign us up"

Change for the sake of change. Absolutely nothing wrong with the current sweaters. Hopefully they won't **** them up too much.

My glass is half empty.

I am more or less allergic to those stripes.

Gold B on the home jerseys.
Change the striping on the gold socks to the 1968-95 version

Remove the "diaper" effect from the away jerseys by making the scooped hem black.
Inverse the white and black hem and arm stripes to make them similar to the 68-95 striping.
The thick black stripes swallow the gold up too much.
Switch the striping on the white socks to the 68-95 version.
Make the black yoke gold and make the yoke trim black.

The WC Jersey above would have been great, if it didn't include the awful brown.

Brown does not belong on a Bruins jersey....regardless of history, IMO.

The current home and road set are as close to perfect as you can hope for. Coming from the Fleet center era set, the current design was mana from the heavens. The current set is always regarded as one of the excellent sets in the league.

So I have zero doubts that the redesign is going to **** it all up. Talk about change for no reason.

This is all I came here to say. And no black socks for any reason.
