The Devils Uniforms


Recommended Posts

The floatie arm things are really a lot more noticeable than I thought they would be. The lack of bottom stripes does give it that cheap empty look but I didn't think the arm and sock stripes would be this pronounced. Ugly ugly uniform.

They actually looked a little better overall than I expected...the chopped shoulder yokes were OK, and the lack of a bottom stripe isn't quite as bad as I thought.   

If they ever ditch the equal stripes (and went with a 25%-50%-25% ratio instead of 33%-33%-33%...still "fatter" than the old design, but less-floaty looking), I can live with this general template...doesn't mean I wouldn't take the old ones back in heartbeat (it's still the superior design), but at least I can watch them without cringing now.  I'm surprised that I thought the reds looked better than the whites on ice.

Jesus. H. Christ. Some of you guys are hysterical. Like, beyond hysterical. I'm not a huge fan of the new uniforms, I'm really not. But holy crap some of you are acting like they slapped your sis

YOU SHUT YOUR GOD DAMN WHORE MOUTH LEAVE MY BANNERS ALONE SO HELP ME GOD *cough* I mean, uh, no I doubt they'll do that, doesn't seem to make much sense right?

Dallas doesn't have red on them though, the red and green together look awful to me. Seeing them a few times a year is fine but I never want them back full time.

I went on around 6am and they were already sold out of 50s. I went for a larger size which said was in stock but then got bumped out.

Whether you love the jersey's or you hate 'em... this news pleases me. $afe to $ay, the Devils are pleased with this as well.

The damn stripes are jarring to me though.

I have the opposite opinion. I thought they were far less noticeable "in action" and they didn't bother me at all.

If you're implying that they're selling strictly due to the new design, I'd say that's not accurate.  New design or old, with Hischier in the fold (and to a lesser extent guys like Johansson), the Devils were almost guaranteed strong initial sales.  It's how they do long-term, once that newness factor wears off.   

I think last night is the best that I've seen them look in any venue.  They didn't look right in graphic mockups, player photos, on mannequins or without pads (see Hischier in his draft photos).  I didn't like the whites in the prospects game, but after watching highlights of last night's game, I was pleasantly surprised that the reds weren't that bad (changing the stripe ratios or just the stripe layout would make a world of difference).  What will be interesting to see is how the needle moves for other Devils fans.  I went from "Ahhhhhhhh nooooooooo!" to "I can tolerate these on ice" (but still won't buy one).  How much of the "I don't hate them, but not really feeling these enough to snag one" crowd goes to the "Maybe I'll buy one after all" group?

Needs the bottom pinstripe. Can live with the other changes.  Actually really like the "championship collar".  Bottom pinstripe sets us apart from other red-colored teams.

I would like to see some kind of stripes at the bottom too...but I thought they'd look at lot worse than they do without them.  On a scale of 1 to 10, I had the red at about a 1 or 2 from previous unveilings.  I'd say I'm up to a 4 or 5 now (unless things are tweaked though I won't be going any higher than that).

Not even close.  The Blackhawks have that one locked up.  We went from being a top 5-6 to being in the bottom 1/2 of the league.

Personally, I think most of the original 6 are better, excluding the Rags which is pretty boring. No way the Devils is better than the Hawks, Habs, Wings, or Bruins. I always thought the Devils had one of the best non-original 6 jersey though. Along with the Blues and don't kill me...the Flyers.

This is all correct.

I agree with you.  The Hawks, Habs, and Wings are classics and top 3 IMO.  I also like the new Leafs jerseys that they changed to last season (which was a take on one of their older jerseys).  Other than that, I used to think we were in the next group with the Flyers and Bruins, which is pretty good company.  Now our jerseys are no better than teams like the Sharks and Tampa.

Man, you guys are a tough crowd.

I didn't see the game the other night, but I watched some of the highlights. If I hadn't already known about the change, I'm not 100% sure I would have even noticed.

I think that will be the reaction mostly. Casual fans will hardly notice for the most part.

Well, as a 6-year season ticket holder I don't think I qualify as "casual."

But I will cop to not having much of an eye for (or interest in) fashion. :D

I didn't mean you in particular , I'm just saying the backlash some are expecting probably won't materialize because it's not that noticeable of a change unless you are looking for it

I'm not interested in fashion either but when you attend a game in person I don't see how you won't see a difference, especially as someone who has a season ticket plan for as long as you have.
