The nameplate is different, but I like it anyway!

yeah, i wasn't a fan of the nameplate, but the more i look at it, the more i'm willing to give it a chance. i'm just super excited for an orange jersey that isn't a radical departure from traditional flyers shirts.

ESPN's Uni Watch column:
Quote:

Oops, silly Uni Watch -- that game already exists. And although it's easy to forget about hockey when baseball and football are in high gear, the NHL season actually began last weekend with four regular-season games in Prague and Stockholm (sort of like MLB opening its season in Japan, only with lots of pickled herring instead of sushi), and all four teams wore commemorative patches for the occasion. The ones worn by the Senators and Penguins featured the word "Stockholm" and a Swedish flag motif (pretty cool, right?), while the ones worn by the Rangers (who, as always, positioned the patch on their shoulder instead of on their chest) and Lightning had "Prague" and a Czech flag motif.

The rest of the season kicks into high gear on Thursday. And it's a big year uni-wise, because alternate jerseys, which had been banished last season, will be reappearing in many locker rooms, plus there's the usual assortment of patches and tweaks. Uni Watch knows you want to be fully up to speed on North America's 17th-most-popular sport (or whatever it's fallen to this week), so here's a full breakdown of what's on tap:

like the 80s/90s? that's my preference, i'm just happy there's as much orange in this one as there is. i'm picky over the nameplate and pit-lookin part, but i'm sure they'll both grow on me.

Ahh change! It's all I hear these days. I welcome a good change. I just think the design of the new unis is bad. It looks like they're wearing an apron and the color scheme on the sleeves is all wrong. There's nothing fluid about the design, just bad angles and blocks of color.

I have to disagree. I think the jersey flows beautifully for the most part. The only part that clashes is the white box around the name, which I'm sure the only reason that's in there is because of tradition.

Wow I misspoke terribly. My post was referring to the "new" Reebok jerseys, our every game home and aways.

eta... I'm loving the new thirds.

As I sit here I am looking at pictures of Bernie and Clarkie on my wall from the 70's and these "new" 3rd jerseys are virtually identical to the mid-70's (i.e. STANLEY CUP era) jerseys. Orange is "less red" and more like the 80's/90's and logo is bigger but basically the same. I think they are awesome. I will get a Captain Richards for sure.

Lots of teams going "retro"... I think Edmonton's are back to their "glory days" as well.

Exactly. I love the look of these jerseys. The white nameplate is a key to really enforcing the retro look. It counters the modern elements of the color and curved hem in the back.

I love the front of the jersey, but absolutely HATE the back of it.

The collar needs to be black, but this is awesome.

So when are we actually going to be able to buy these? I sort of thought they'd make them available at the start of the season.

Supposedly sometime in late November, so my guess is they'll definitely be for sale come the start of December.

I can understand one, but two? As if anyone is going to forget who their NHL affiliate is if they can only see one shoulder. Personally, I think they should've replaced one of them with their spectrum patch, or maybe even a new one to commemorate its last season.

Other than that, can't be worse than what they currently have. *shudder*
I'll wait to see how it looks on a player before I judge it. It's fairly easy to judge the Flyers third jersey because we've seen it before, but the Phantoms picture there only shows it hanging there. Maybe it looks better when it's rounded out, who knows.

But yes, a hell of a lot of purple regardless.

Totally agree, I love that jersey.
