Dunno how you can call them "****acular", they were pretty successful sales-wise and were one of the nicer jerseys in the league. Pretty much the only people that didn't like them are "hardcore" hockey fans (but those are the same people that think barber poles will look good.)

A) The Barberpoles would look good.

B) Most people didn't have a problem with the Jersey, it was just the logo that drove everyone crazy.

You sound like a "SNES" jersey owner.

Barberpoles are hell on the eyes and they don't look good over a whole jersey. Those old jerseys are eyesores, but in limited amounts it looks good (see the 67s jerseys this year.)

I absolutely loved the colour, but couldn't stand the logo. Bring back the original (first gen) 2D Senator, or go with the O and a barber pole undertone with the specific shade of black they had on the outgoing 3rd.

Wait, so you're telling me people have different tastes?

For the record, I'm amused at how CPM essentially just called himself a non-hardcore fan yet thinks he knows more than pro scouts.

On topic, I really do like what I've seen from the jersey teaser. If it's anywhere close to Jerk Store's design, I'm going out there and immediately buying myself a Spezza jersey.

Yeah, I like the O. I'm not a big fan of the spartan.

Yeah, not that that's anything new, but I was referring more to the fact that this is the only place I've ever heard anything bad about that jersey. In fact, when I've gone to games the "SNES" jersey seems to be the most commonly worn one.

Has there ever been an incident where I claimed to know more than pro-scouts? Also where did I call myself a "non hardcore fan"?

With that in mind I think the teaser looked great. I still think they should look at the 67s jersey design for future designs. I really like the partial barber pole and colours.

Just like we do with your opinion on prospects.

Ha, that's fine I just had to say it. I agree it's probably the best looking jersey, especially from a TV set when you aren't seeing the logo often. It isn't a huge compliment either way because I hate the other ones.

My stance on jerseys is simple, and logical IMO. If you want a jersey that won't out date (like our cartoon logo has)...pick the logo that didn't have one precede it, the original. Generally speaking, it barely even matters if it's ugly or simplistic, as long as it's the original you can basically use it as long as you wish. Tinker the rest of the jersey to stay fresh (and to spur sales). Logos shouldn't change.

We've got two originals. If you don't want to put the O on every jersey, go back to the 2D logo.

What 67's jerseys are you referring to? The current ones, or the one that they will bring back next year.

I completely disagree with your statement that Barberpoles are an eyesore, I love them to death.

It is awesome....wouldn't want the Sens to touch it in any way though. It's belonged to the 67s for quite some time now...it's theirs only.

I don't like that very much. I like these:





Tasteful use of the barberpoll.

I like those, but not as much as the full out barberpoles. I guess it's because I'm a baseball fan who loves the pinstripes. To me, the barberpole just speaks "proud history"

Very valid point. I completely agree actually. I wouldn't mind the Senators stealing for a heritage classic jersey though.

Icethetics had a poll a while back showing every Canadian team's jerseys. The SNES jersey finished dead last, or second last I believe out of 18 jerseys. Every single person I've ever known has made fun of me for those jerseys being disgraceful. The arena football league called, they want the Sens to give them back ALL of their jersey designs. I said it.

The 67s use the barber pole well, it's fine in those jerseys but in any jersey where the barberpoll is used on the entire jersey it looks awful.
And talking about the SENS jersey, the jersey itself is fine, it's the SENS in the centre that ruins it. Replace that with an "O" and it could've been really good.

That's a bunch of ********. I guess it all comes down to taste. But I've already pre-ordered the new 67s jersey because of how downright sexy it is.

Agreed. The 67s are a landmark franchise in the CHL, have developed the most NHLers, and have a HoF name in Kilrea. All those NHLers wore that jersey. If you find it ugly, that's the beauty of it....the franchise built a foundation of respect in it. It's very much a part of the history of the franchise...it's good it is coming back.

Well im glad that jersey was a hit within the non-hockey fans segment.
