I won't believe that's the actual on-ice lettering until I see it actually on the ice.

No.. I want BOTH. I want the letters to offset the numbers. Let the name be white with the numbers black. (the same way the Bulls did) Our color scheme works awesome with that look.

This is set to be either the biggest bait-&-switch in history.. or the moment where Chris Creamer (among others) loses absolutely every ounce of credibility he has, for saying: "the Devils to be one of 8 other teams, who will see major changes in their uniforms" 3 months ago. --because of the 3 pictures that've leaked thus-far these last 2 weeks.. it looks like the jersey's going to be exact same design it's always been. :P

Hmm. There is something different with this. Look at the collar: in our current uniforms, the stripe around the neck is white

I have personally found Creamer to be more and more of a clickbait-y clown over the past year.  If he is wrong about this then he will be 0 for 2 this year on Devils predictions.  He wrote about that the Devils would wear Irish-themed warmup jerseys on the St. Patrick's Day game this year and the Devils didn't (and I don't buy the excuse that they decided not to wear them at the last minute).

Right now we know the following for sure from the pictures:

1) There is red white and black

2) Logo is unchanged.

3) Black is still on the shoulder yokes

4) No white trim on shoulder yoke

Therefore the only things left are the arm and bottom striping and the number fonts.  If any of those are changed or one of them eliminated then at best this is a minor change, then not the "major" changes that Creamer wrote about.  However, if that happens Creamer will use the excuse that since the Devils haven't changed their primaries one bit since 1992 (except for the very minor color shade change in 99), that this would constitute a "major change" for them.

Same here.  For all we know they just slapped on replica lettering on an authentic on-ice jersey.  Teams have done that many times before in the past.

As a jersey collector, I do like patches.  But yeah sometimes it gets out of hand.  Some teams like the Rangers and Capitals celebrate anniversaries every 5 years (Caps celebrated 40 years while Rangers celebrated 85th and 90th recently) and those are a bit much.  Teams like LA, Philly and St. Louis celebrated 50th anniversaries which make sense as well as those memorial patches as well.

It's because of these patches as why the NHL had little choice but to place the 100th anniversary patches on the arm below or above the number.  Starting in 2018 the 100th patch apparently is going to be replaced with the Stanley Cup 150th patch.  The design for that was leaked a few months back for that.

Yea it makes sense to appreciate it from that perspective, but for me it's just like why do you think your organization is so special that the league and all its fans need to recognize the fact that you've been around 20 years all season long.  Anniversaries for everything, one patch for the year you're closing an arena and another the next year for opening one,  Don't teams that host the all star game usually wear a patch all season?  And the NHL throws something on everyone's jersey from time to time.  Interesting about the Stanley Cup patch, though.

No retro format in red and black. That's something I saw as a possibility. I can't wait for these jersey releases not only to see ours, but to see if Adidas is going to fvck this up the same way Reebok did with all of those horrible redesigns when edge came out. It amazes me that some teams completely stuck with their original edge redesigns for the entire decade. They're so outdated and horrible looking, but the Caps and Calgary and others still skate around with that stupid piping up the sides. We know those will heavily modified. Some teams will probably use this to totally rebrand I imagine.  Any good candidates for a completely new look?  Has any team not released a teaser of their crest?

The more I look at that material, it really reminds me of the BS crappy material they made Premiers from.

Not to be picky, but

1) Correct.

2) In design but not in material

3) The "shoulder yoke" IS the black part. So they still have a shoulder yoke, and that yoke is still black.

4) The shoulder yoke never had white trim since the color change; it's the collar that lacks the white stripe.

I mentioned the white stripe because one of the rumors flying around that I've seen is that the new adidas jerseys would have the white trim around the black shoulder yoke a la the old red white and green era jerseys.  That obviously isn't the case anymore.

Ahh, I follow. In that case:

5) The white stripe from the collar appears to be gone.

I heard a disturbing rumor that the Devils are going for an "empty" look by getting rid of the nice horizontal stripes at the bottom of the jersey? I guess this is to give the jersey an unfinished practice jersey look? I don't get it. Can't be true.

I have a feeling they will be getting rid of all the white stripes on the jersey.

I'm not a fan if when teams do that. Those stripes, to me, represent old time hockey. 20-25 years ago, basically every team had some form of them. It won't look right without them.

Sure hope that's a nonsense rumor.  They'd look ridiculous imo.

Same as above.  Without the white strips the jerseys would just look.. bad.

They represent current hockey as well. Most teams still have them and teams that ditched them in the RBK rollout went right back to them after fan outrage. They look good and add character to the jersey. Plus they fill what would otherwise be a big ugly empty space. 

I don't think the Devils are so stupid to allow this. And if they do, well whoever approved it needs to have his skull caved in with a baseball bat.

I was thinking it would look like this just with as devils Logo. Which wouldn't be horrific. Screenshot_20170620-141241.thumb.png.bdeb83740a45ec7cefcb9e22a3996ecc.png

 

Hoping for no changes though.

 

Also saw this yesterday, oilers again. But interesting:

I heard that if the Devils will do this, that they will not be alone.  Apparently it is part of the Adidas Adizero design template for the jerseys (kind of like the apron strings for the Edge 2.0).  The very bottom will be a solid small black stripe and that's it.  A lot of other jerseys will have something similar (like Nashville will be solid yellow with a solid blue stripe on the bottom).

Whether the stripe is there or not there is not a huge deal in the long run.  A lot of teams eventually tweaked or changed their jerseys outright after the introduction of the Reebok Edge in 2007 and plenty went back to basically the exact same look before they changed to the Edge style.

Basically, whatever happens, the jersey design isn't considered something that is forever.

I don't really like that Oilers jersey, and I HATE that Canada jersey as a possible new Devils jersey.  Without the white, it looks so weird and quite awful.  White is integral to our color scheme and identity if you ask me.

I don't think that oilers jersey is real, instead just a fan rendition.  But we will see tonight

Am I the only one who'd love a patch of the outline of NJ on one of the shoulders?
