Dunno if its posted, but the Rags' stadium jerseys were revealed.

don't like the lettering at all, never mind the chrome but the raised angle look is weird and 90s ish. The rest IMO isn't too bad.

Jersey collecting is a hobby.

 

Watching/supporting the Devils and wanting them to succeed is also a hobby.

 

Both hobbies have many things in common, thus this thread.

Hawks also released their jersey today too for the Stadium game.  Cross between the cookie cutters we have been seeing with the arm stripes not going around all the way and their black alternates from a few years ago.  Crest is chromified as well.

 

Devils are now the only ones who have not officially shown their Stadium Series jersey.

I'd be surprised if our stadium jersey look any different than the throwbacks they've used for the past couple retro nights. Lou is such a stick in the mud when it comes to something like that, I'm sure he had many a fight with Bettman & Co over the chrome stuff. I mean yeah tradition and all, but come on, eventually you have to concede something to modern times, even if not completely. And it's not like this would be something worn for anything other than this game.

The way these jerseys are going I'm glad Lou didn't bend to the league's will. I believe TG reported that they'd just be the throwbacks.

I mean yeah tradition and all, but come on, eventually you have to concede something to modern times, even if not completely. And it's not like this would be something worn for anything other than this game.

Here's how the convo went:

Bettman: "Lou, we want to have every team wear a special jersey for the stadium series"

Lou: "No."

Bettman: "Coors Light is sponsoring us, so we want to have a chrome look to the jerseys, nothing drastic, just a different finish to the logo."

Lou: "No."

Bettman: "Well then what jersey will the Devils wear if every other team is wearing a special one?"

Lou: "Status quo."

Bettman: "Lou, this could really be an issue if the Devils are the only ones not wearing the jerseys."

Lou: "Don't you worry about my jerseys!"

 

----

I'm glad lou is trying to hold his ground, the ones already revealed look like they'd be something that 20 years from now we'll look back and say "What were they thinking?"

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

Pens
Kings
Rags
Islanders
Ducks

Yeah id put them in that same order, and put the blackhawks between the kings and rangers.

Idk if anyone saw the outdoor ahl jerseys but imo the lake erie jerseys were some of the nicest jerseys ive seen

The Rags look like the Wolf Pack away jerseys.  Like the rest of the jerseys, the chrome ruins it.  But I'll have to wait and see what they look like in person.  Pictures can be deceiving.  But I actually like the overall design of the Rags jersey.  Just get rid of the chrome look and it's sharp looking.

Contrary to popular belief, Lou doesn't have any say in the matter.  So he can come out and say it's the green retros, but there's no guarantee it will be.  I think the league is gonna do for the Devils what they just did for the Hawks.  That is they're gonna take a prior design, and just adapt it to the chrome mandate.  In other words, they're gonna take the retro jersey, and just chrome it up.

 

This was the alternate jersey Chicago wore for the 08-09 season.

And this is the Stadium Series jersey.

Contrary to popular belief, Lou doesn't have any say in the matter.  

 

Yes, he does. He has a direct say to what they wear on the ice like every other team president. 

 

Reebok can design the style and templates and work with the individual teams on specific details, but if a team says NO to a style or template they can not force it down a team's throat or else. If Lou said no to a chromed up cookie cutter jersey, what can the league do? Suspend them from the game? Unless it's part of the mandate that each team had to do this to play in the Stadium Series, then i am of the belief Lou said no and his quotes are 100% accurate.

 

Let the other teams participate in the money grab. It doesn't mean they had to, they did for that very reason. If you look at the teams involved none have ever been shy about a 3rd jersey.

No he doesn't.  This is different.  The league is getting some serious financial backing by Coors Light in this Stadium Series.  Coors Light and the league have come out with this chrome look as a way to make a more futuristic appeal.  This is a special event, and if Coors Light is asking the league to showcase this look, then Lou is very easily SOL.  This is a major agreement from the league and Coors Light.  There's obligations in the contract the league has to comply with.  I'm sure the league, reebok, and Coors Light will do what they can to keep Mr. Lamoriello as happy as possible, but he is not the final say in this matter.

Won't be surprised to see a chrome crest on the jerseys, but I also won't be surprised if this isn't released to retail. If they're going to ruin the jersey for the game, maybe Lou was successful in squashing any attempts to sell these to the fans. Pure speculation on my part though.
