Jerzey

Full Jersey redesign next year?

If they tastefully bring the regular sweaters  into a more contemporary design, I will be fine. 

If they nuke the jersey and we get a red and black version of the BuffaSlug, I will literally hang myself.

literally.

I don't know, a jersey so bad it gets a nickname like "Buffaslug" or "Mooterus" might be mildly entertaining.

and hey by all means do that, but sh!t dont go all the way back to the old red and green....

I'd prefer they not do anything at all, but those options would be preferable to a full scale overhaul.

You're right, I just hate this especially with the initial post being such gloom and doom panic inducing. now that its being walked back on, the click-baity ness of the original tweet is infuriating [used that twice tonight now]

There are some minor tweaks I could live with.  But they better not overhaul the best uniforms in the league.

From the insiders podcast:

1.) No red & green as a hard makeover

2.) Logo should be staying the same

3.) Modernizing of the current look

It doesn't need 'modernizing'. It's fine.

I'm just saying what the guy said they had on as the guest, it was his guess.

But it is sounding more and more like that initial tweet was fvcking click bait.

I don't see it as un-modern currently, despite the design being 25 or so years old. If you do it right, it's timeless. Like a good suit.

Modernizing is another way of saying shoulder patches and laced up collar

I'll keep an open mind as long as it stays red and black and the logo stays.

Exactly. Ours IS a timeless jersey. I'd like to keep it that way.

hopefully it doesn't mean what the canes did.

don't mess with the fonts - that's terribly important. don't lose sight on that point.

Makes sense, promotes himself and he just happened to be on the podcast tonight? Seems awfully convenient.

I think the Blackhawks have the best, but the Devils are definitely up there. 

This is awful news.

I don't entirely see what about that jersey can be "modernized" well outside of the logo - has a shade of red been discovered in the last 25 years?

If the logo is likely to stay the same, then I feel like "modernizing" the jersey is going to entail adding pointless stuff to it.

That said, a shoulder patch in the shape of NJ I guess would be kind of neat.

I get the feeling modernizing may mean chrome or side panels or something like that.

Pittsburgh is back to looking like it should, so is Buffalo, Edmonton, Philly, St, Louis, Toronto...why are we jumping into this when everybody else has outgrown their idiocy phases?

You know the Lou era is over.  Last time there was a jersey change we were one of the few teams that didn't make a change.  Now we are the only one making a change.  Odd times.  At least it gives us something to talk about other than the actual hockey team.

The only thing I can think of is that the owners/management believe that by changing the jerseys, they will maximize their revenue stream even further.  There is literally NO other reason to make any changes.  The jersey and logo is classic and has withstood the test of time.  In fact, I dare say it is the only design that came from the 1990's that hasn't been changed and/or wasn't a complete disaster. 

It is universally renowned as one of the best jerseys in hockey (outside of the original 6 teams, that everyone fawns over all the time - although the Blackhawks jerseys are the best in pro sports IMO).  I have a feeling that they are getting rid of the horizontal stipes along the hem and sleeves, going to allow Adidas to put vertical stripes along the sides like they had on the WC jerseys, and change the font for the names and numbers.  If they do any major renovations to this jersey, then I will protest the only way I can that could potentially affect the new owners, by not purchasing my season tickets or paying to attend games any longer.  I can get enough freebies to attend at least 5 games each season, and will watch the rest of the games from the comfort of my home, saving myself thousands each year.

I think you might see three things:

 1) They may remove the circle around the logo.

 2) The shoulder pads probably are gone.

 3) I could see them offsetting the logo's color, based on the jersey. Other teams do this. When Toronto wears their white jersey, their logo's blue. When they wear the blue jersey, the logo's white. Same with Calgary. White logo, yellow logo, black logo, red logo, etc. based on what color jersey they're wearing. In the end the Devils could be left with something like this..
