New Flyers jersey information leak!

Hey everyone,

I got a thumbs up from the mods to share this with you, and before you go ahead an say SPAM, consider this:

A contributor to my blog for the Flyers recently obtained inside information about next season's Flyers jersey, and if you care to see that info leak, visit the following link:

If this is true, I'm turning in my card, and becoming a fulltime CHL fan.

Anyone who knew something about the Flyers for next year knew that there would not be an orange jersey next year.

If you're going to quit for the color of the jersey, might as well quit anyway. Man, maybe Biron will use pink pads, or some players will use skates or sticks that are not of your tastes... Maybe the coach will wear a fugly green tie! Quit!

I wouldn't mind the black as much if they made the shoulders orange as opposed to white.

That would look pretty cool.

Nothing to get upset about here. This is basically the same information as most of us were suspecting. Sucks that we have to wait until September though

Black should be abolished as the main color (shade?) from NHL jerseys.

If I quit, it will be because I'm tired of the NHL being a glorified bush league. And nothing screams bush league more than "ill conceived cash grab".

I agree. I hate black NHL uniforms, except for the Gretzky Kings' jerseys.

Fair enough Roger, I think most of us expected this. They'll sell the new jerseys and then once those sales start to slow down they'll re-introduce the orange third jerseys.

The BuffaSlug design disgusts me. I'll be pissed if that leak is true and the new Flyers threads are styled like that... I will never buy a new jersey, if that's the case. But, of course, like everything else in this world, the opportunity to hoarde more revenue with any kind of new style wins out.

A bit of an overreaction after not even seeing the uniforms. Besides, it would just be a change in uniform that is more appealing to the average fan. If it helps the league, I don't care if they wear pink and brown uniforms. And it's not like they're going to be wearing this:

Isn't this the same site that said the new Habs jerseys were basically the mock-up from the all-star game only with a Habs logo pasted?

Yeah, I wouldn't sweat this.

I don't recall so, but if it did, it's only something someone else saw or heard - not to be earth-shattering news.

I don't think it's an overreaction. I haven't been happy with the NHL since they lockout ended; as a patron of the NHL, I have a choice. I can ***** about how much I hate Magoo, Bettman, flashing goal posts, shoot-outs, and all that noise that comes with "myNHL" or I can take my business elsewhere.

the article says outright that there will be no THIRD jersey this year, but once there is, it will be orange. Orange will be back in the mix before we know it!

let's relax, and see what they look like before we even comment on them. Hell, they can't be anywhere as bad as the Islanders new jersey's

1. Considering how Orange was the main color for the Flyers for 30 years or so, it's a weird decision to stay with the black jerseys from a sales perspective. Imagine what they would hoard in with a new orange primary jersey. Rumors have it the thirds will return in 2010...

2. There's a reference to the BUFFASLUG jersey in that article. Imagine those arm patterns and stripes everywhere, and that leaked Islanders jersey (which may not even be what they'll be wearing) doesn't look too bad.

I got an email last week saying that I can reserve my new Daniel Briere jersey for a cheap cost of only $200, which is about $50 more than I spend for the jerseys I already have. I'm just going to keep buying old ones until I can't anymore.
