..if the powers that be (Bettman, O'Neil, etc.) actually succeed in forcing LL's hand for using the chrome logo.. I would be stunned.

I don't think Lou holds the same amount of clout as he did say 10 or even 5 years ago. Remember last year he wasn't really involved at all in the lockout talks. In a smaller nhl sure he was like the godfather but I feel in some ways in the business end the league has grown too big for him in the sense that his influence is diminished.

 

..you may be on to something.

 

My friend works at the Globe where Lou goes about once a month, and he knows him quite well. He tells a story how the league consulted Lou prior to the expansion in 1991, and talks about how it was Lamoriello who pioneered the suggestion of extending the season into June. (before that, the NHL finals would end in May) Couple things to reference here --besides Lou's authority--  #1) Lamoriello was a 49 year-old man in 1991.. and  #2) The NHL was a 21 team league!

 

I think it's fair to say the NHL respects Lou's stature.. but he certainly doesn't have the obedience in command, that he once had.

Yes, he does.

I'd venture to say he's the biggest reason they're doing an outdoor game at Yankee Stadium.

I would venture to say if it were up to Lou he would have just rather not be in the game, not his style.

The league is the one driving the stadium series, and one in NYC was going to happen whether Lou was involved or not. I'm glad they're doing it and were a part of it (especially the first of the 2 games), but I really doubt Lou is the biggest reason the game is going to happen.

I'd agree, but the lack of a new jersey for this simple has Lou written all over it.. The league wanted everyone to have new jerseys, but the Devils clearly resisted.. He may have less clout, I do agree, but at the same time the owners clearly have a ton of respect for him and will undoubtedly concede if Lou feels strongly enough about something.. He has more right to "protect the brand" (guessing that's what Lou calls it) than anyone else on this Earth

I agree that he probably didn't really care and would rather not be in it, but at the same time he knows this is huge exposure for the team.. Vanderbeek said that if a Winter Classic was played in NJ, it would involve the Devils.. Lou is on the Yankees BOG, so it's not a stretch to think that he was told to get the Devils in this game and did so under orders.. Again, I agree it's not his style, but if he were to turn the game down it would be terrible for the franchise

oh believe me I've been in this thread hoping Lou keeps to the regular or retro jerseys, and as you see by my avatar I have a lot of respect for him. But if the chrome logo is on it I think that's a small sign of Lou not being able to dog in his heels like he used to.

I will say this; the fact it's taking so long is a good sign. --provided you WANT to see a jersey that the team's never worn before. ie; different stripe design, chrome, etc.

It's ****ing frustrating at this point.. Like WTF just come out with it! They obviously had the plans set a while ago.. I'm with everyone else who is baffled by them not releasing all of these jerseys before the holiday shopping season.. I'd love to hear why, because I genuinely don't think they screwed up and are that incompetent.. At the same time, I can't see any logical reason

Right and I'm guessing they are but you'd still think they would officially announce it or something just to get fans excited.. All we got was Lou mentioning it to TG, and I doubt more than 50% of Devils fans even follow his blog.. I mean, it's guaranteed that these have the Stadium Series patch on them, so that's at least a little different.. My point is DO SOMETHING

yea this is true i feel you... i would splurge for a stadium series jersey if it has a nice patch which im sure it will.. any idea if that chrome looking logo that they have on the shirts and hoodies will be on the actual jerseys as well? but if they were smart they wouldve released these jerseys months and months ahead of time to try to make a large profit off of people attending the games to buy one for it

It's not bad, but not great either.  That damn sublaminated crest crap that Reebok is using is making the crest/logos flat when they shouldn't.

 

Overall this is how I would rank the Stadium Series jerseys so far from best to worst:

 

Pens

Kings

Rags

Islanders

Ducks

I agree, it looks cheap to me like that. I really hope we don't get our logo ruined with chromification.
