Perhaps the reverse negative shot of Kopitar advertising Frozen Fury is another hint?

You're too slow JT, just like MC.

Will the Kings bring back Steve Duchesne to model the new jerseys?

I agree, and It seems we are in the majority here, not sure why the organization is hesitating? MAKE IT SO LUC!

So sad. I'll probably never get a Kings jersey without purple. Currently the two I have are our home from last year and the purple and yellow vintage ones we wore this season (equipped with fight straps and Doughty on it). Not excited for new jerseys

I really hope they don't try to bleed the color out of the logos. Black and white's boring. Sides, if you're looking for more fans... Justin Bieber's favorite color is purple...

Seriously, though, the purple's my favorite part of the logo, and I'll be very sad to see it go.

I haven't been able to find a purple and gold from this year anywhere on the internet, much less an authentic RBK one, where did you get it? Team LA?

I sure remember a LOT of love for the 'black' jerseys when they came out. In fact, I believe they were flying off the shelves. That is most likely the marketing research they used to determine the switch...not Rich's blog (sorry Rich, you're not that important).

Anyways, why all the hate now? I've always thought the current home jersey is one the boringest and ugliest in the league....I love the black.

It's because were the only nhl team that has purple on their jerseys. Purple symbolizes Royalty while Black is just plain boring.

I honestly don't care about the colors one way or another. It's the home plate logo that I'm not a fan of. I've grown to accept it now, and I support the team no matter what they're wearing, but I can't imagine us lifting the cup wearing that logo. Funny thing is, I bought a home plate jersey for the playoffs last year, so I guess I'm part of the problem.

Pretty much the only thing they had on the shelves in the Team LA store at the end of last season.

If the new white jersey is halfway decent I'll probably buy it. Therein lies the problem with the Kings and their jersey choices-as long as it doesn't really suck I might buy one instead of expecting to be wowed.

Can't help but think this whole black and white BS is being driven by Luc.
Do remember than DL is partially colorblind...Honest!

Yep, I remember that Dean is color blind.

I doubt I will be buying a new jersey if it is just black and white.

I'm a huge fan of the throwback yellow/purple jerseys. I'd love to see those AT LEAST a third, and ideally figure out a way to make them home/away. They were classy!

Plus, J Quick would always wear the waffle blocker

I hate them switching to black. It seems every team wears black now. You turn on a game and you can't tell who is playing. The away team is in white and the home team is in black. (I know it is not every team)
I bought a color TV and it would be nice to see some color other than red wings

Boston, Pittsburgh...just to name two teams that were wearing black long before the Kings. I don't get the affinity for black uniforms by so many teams. They are about as bland and generic as you can get.

eBay. Funny story. On the cheap jerseys thread in the main NHL talk forum, someone linked to the exact jersey I bought saying that the crap jerseys like mine were all horrible and would always fall apart and not worth buying and when I got mine, it was an authentic RBK jersey with tags and all hand sewn, thick numbers and emblems as well as the fight straps. Apparently the person I bought it from has a way of getting the jerseys blank and then he/she/it orders the logos too and sews everything on. I highly recommend them. Problem is my dad bought it so I'll have to find out who the seller was. I think they said they can make any jersey in any size.

If anyones interested, PM me letting me know and I'll ask my dad what the users name was and get it for everyone.
