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

 

Devilsfan26 is right, Reebok just slapped their names on old CCM 6100 jerseys as they were just bought out by Reebok in 2004 (and in turn Koho was bought by CCM in the late 90's/early 2000's)  Reebok was still developing the Edge jerseys during the 05-06 and 06-07 seasons so basically they are just CCM jerseys with Reebok label on them, not the other way around.

 

Reebok's first jersey they actually made were the Edge jerseys.

better hope nike doesnt get the nhl contract for the jerseys after reebok is done.. we thought we saw a decline after reebok took over from ccm.. if nike came out with an nhl jersey that was anything like what theyre making for the nfl now... whoof the nike nfl jerseys are pure sh!t compared to the reebok ones.

 

For hockey, Nike seems to split jersey people into 2 very divided camps.  Their swift jerseys have their supporters and detractors.  Nike actually made some of the team's NHL jerseys back in the 80's and 90's (teams I can remember using them off the top of my head was Edmonton, Detroit and San Jose) and are often very sought after by collectors.

The jerseys Nike made before they came out with the Swift garbage in 2006 were great.  The material had a nice feel to them and the teams were still able to design them, so they actually looked like hockey jerseys.  Now teams are losing control of their identities and we have a race between Reebok and Nike to see who can destroy hockey jerseys the most.  Some of the Edge jerseys that have come out in the past year or so are getting back to a normal hockey jersey appearance though, clean look with horizontal stripes, no vertical piping etc.

Apparently, this Yankees inspired equipment was a prototype designed for Henrik Lundqvist to wear during the Stadium Series. I admit that does look cool!

And there we have it: @TGfireandice: For those who've beem asking, Lou Lamoriello said Devils will be wearing original red jerseys with green in outdoor game at Yankee Stadium. @TGfireandice: Lamoriello said they will be same jerseys team wore previously around St. Patrick's Day.

sorry - this is terribly disappointing. i'm not saying that they had to go with day glow orange or something, but when you've got fans begging for a cool retro jersey and marketing $ to be made, why wouldn't you do it. even if it was just the whites, that would've been something. there have been plenty of cool mockups for alternates (there was a cool red and black one earlier in this thread).

They can't wear white as they are the home team.

 

lou's answer also doesn't fall in line with features subtly hinted at by reebok. Whatever the case it looks like reebok failed to shove a new design down lou's throat.

White retros would have been neat, but I don't really care. Just glad we didn't get a whole new god awful design. The 3rd jersey policy is one of my favorite LL rules.

As much as I dont really care what they're going to wear, I agree that it's a bit of a loss from a sales standpoint.  The white/black jerseys from earlier in this thread are pretty cool while being subdued enough for Lou to allow, and I'm sure fans would be likely to buy something different - especially around the holidays.

 

For the record, they could have gone to the white retros if they wanted (which I think would have been awesome); teams can agree to whatever colors they want. IIRC, the rangers wore whites at home against one of the canadian teams in the 24/7 series. I have no idea why I remember this, but I think there was a specific mention of it in the show.

i really don't think that's a big deal - the "home team" designation really only matters from a standpoint of which fanbase was getting 1/41 refunded to them.

don't get me wrong, i don't want an alternate added to the rotation or a change to the current home/aways. i'm totally on board with that. but this is a special occasion where a jersey would be worn once. sorry - it's a mistake. there's no defense i can accept for why they wouldn't do a special jersey for this event.

Not true.  Home teams wear white all the time.

It's an NHL rule, there's no debate lol. It's dark jerseys for home, white jerseys for road. The Capitals are an exception as they have a white 3rd. You'll see a random team wear their whites at home for some reason but how many times does that happen a season? 2? Maybe 3?

No, he's right. The home team can choose to wear either white or color jerseys, they just need to let the opposing team know in advance.

In his own wording, no, he's not. He's saying home teams wear white "all the time" and they don't. While there are exceptions to the rule (as i said above) this is not an all the time occurrence. It might happen less then a handful of times per year.

$$$$$$$$

Well they ARE wearing retro jerseys...just not a new design/color. I still think the red and green retro jerseys they've worn for the St. Patty's day games are pretty sweet, and it's not like they wear them often. This will only be the fourth time they've worn them since the color change before the 1992-93 season. Not to mention, a chrome logo on the game jerseys would've been tacky and hideous. 

 

It wouldn't surprise me to see a special "Stadium Series" patch on the jersey, setting it apart from the "regular" retro jerseys they will wear on March 18 (and that they wore in recent years around St. Patty's Day).

Money...and more money. That's the only reason these stadium series games are being played in the first place.
