I posted this in the Stadium Series ticket thread (merge?) but I am afraid that this monstrosity will be the actual jersey crest.  My guess, based on no actual knowledge, is that it's a plastic applique like the one that the NFL uses for its collar logo and the one that was used on this year's MLB ASG jerseys:

again its not like its going to be our new image for the season it would be used once for the one game.. i think it would be kind of cool. Not that big of a deal

People said having a shootout in the all-star game wasn't a big deal, and now look what happened.  Shootouts decide who makes the playoffs.  Even if they only use these jerseys for this one game, people will buy them and that will only encourage them to come out with the same crap in the future.

You can't have large chunks of plastic on uniforms. It's too firm and rigid. It doesn't move and the space itself covered by the plastic doesn't breathe

I could see Reebok forcing upon us some sort of shimmering new age "chrome" jerseys for all of the outdoor games. I hope I'm wrong.

I actually heard the NHL and Reebok took charge in designing the jerseys and teams were merely consulted rather than being directly involved. I heard we should expect a "futuristic look." Anyone remember those MLB Turn Ahead The Clock jerseys? I'm scared.

Wow never saw those before.  Also with the crappy olympic jerseys that have been released I see reasons to be scared.

Like it or not it's the future of jerseys in the NHL now too.  Not exactly thrilled either but it is what it is.  Soon all of the jerseys are going to have sublaminated numbers.  Hell Nashville has been using them too and apparently it saves money, lasts longer, and can enable more intricate designs without piling on layers and weight.  Con is that the lettering now looks like it was done by shop.nhl.com  Look at how Nashville's sleeve numbers are now:

You obviously don't know what you're talking about with your "logic".  In all seriousness, I know that there are reasons not to use the plastic appliques but I just have a bad feeling.  It wouldn't be the first time that the NHL allowed Reebok free reign to implement a bad idea.

Apparently, according to icethetics, the NHL and Reebok have pretty much full control over the look of the Stadium Series jerseys and not the teams.  This is different from the retro jerseys the Devils put out for the retro games as the Devils and Lou still have at least some say or the final say on them.

 

What I am getting at is that since these appear out of Lou's hands, I doubt they will only be used for just this game.  Reebok and the NHL would never allow a jersey to be developed only to be used and shown for just 1 game when $ is on the line.  Every time the Devils wear the new jersey is basically going to be a 2.5 hour long advertisement for them to sell those jerseys.  Look at how many times the Winter Classic jerseys have been worn by their respective teams after the Winter Classic game was finished.

 

The Rags, Flyers, Red Wings, Bruins, and Sabres have never worn their WC jerseys except for the WC.  Only the Flyers from their first WC (when they made their WC jersey their away), the Hawks, and Pens have ever worn their WC jerseys for more than the actual WC game.


I actually heard the NHL and Reebok took charge in designing the jerseys and teams were merely consulted rather than being directly involved. I heard we should expect a "futuristic look." Anyone remember those MLB Turn Ahead The Clock jerseys? I'm scared.

 

I'm so happy the Yankees never went with that idea.

I'm pretty sure the rags have worn their winter classic jersey at least once since the winter classic.

For the sabres they just made it one of their alternates with slightly different color hues.

the plastic appliques are only for patches as of now w/ the NFL and MLB jerseys, not full crests, just lil shoulder/chest patches-like the NFL logo on that Broncos jersey. Numbers/names are still like they always were

I don't they have ever worn their WC jerseys.  I could be wrong though.

Reebok was making the jerseys even before the RBK Edge came around.  Reebok actually owns CCM too.

i dont know how or why the quality of their shirts went down the drain so badly then.. even the reebok player tee's that they make now are like paper and are just made like trash.

They have been wearing logos that are firm, rigid, and non-breathable for like 20 years now.

Didn't they only make the jerseys for just two seasons before they came out with the Edge crap?  If I remember correctly, they slapped their logo on the CCM/Koho jerseys for 2005-06 and 2006-07, and then rolled out the Edge disasters.

Speaking of dye sublimated numbers, I'm actually completely okay with those. I have a Nick Backstrom Dynamo Moscow jersey (#99, not 69 because I'm not 12) and those things are light and breathable, and the numbers never fade, it's ink injected into the jersey. However, I don't want ads all over the NHL jerseys, ever...
