I am too. I like this reverse retro concept. I think it’s a pandemic-born idea to add another stream of revenue to offset some of the losses that will be coming, but it’s a fvcking great idea.

I agree. I don’t like the idea of messing with our main jerseys (athough admittedly, I don’t dislike it as much as some), but as far as these event or special jerseys go, I like them.

I’d have them play the Military Appreciation Night and HFC Night games in the event jerseys too, and not just have them for warmups. It’s fun, and I bet when they auction them off, they’d make more money for the respective charities if they were game worn as opposed to only having been worn for a few minutes warming up.

I would've liked this more, especially w/green replacing the black trim in the crest (or either black subbed for green throughout the entire jersey):

But regardless of me quibbling with the design, I agree...it's a great idea to boost revenue, and I get the feeling a lot of Devils fans (particularly old-schoolers) are going to embrace the "green and red", especially as a special event jersey.  Might as well have some fun with it.

The one last year was the first one I really liked, and of course they sold out of them

NHL website has them; not the on ice version, but the kind that they sold to the public. 25% off right now, too.

I hope they generate a sh!t ton of revenue with this although I think it will be muted by the tough times we are going through. Personally I have never liked the red/green/white combo at all and this is no different.  I think the red/black and white is head and shoulders a much classier combination and things like this make me appreciate it even more.  I'll cringe every time they wear them while praying for the two points. If my memory is correct doesn't their record resemble dog sh!t when they wear anything resembling the good old days of red and green?

I think there was a point where we were .500 in the "new" retros, but never above it.

Yuck, Quebec logos on the bottom of the Colorado jerseys and most likely as their center logo. I really hope we never do any garbage like this with Scouts or Rockies nonsense...

This probably makes old Nordiques fans wanna puke.

you're a better man than me I didn't give a sh!t enough to look at theirs. Still don't.

I only looked at them to find a way to insult them.

So are camps opening tomorrow?  No word on a preseason schedule yet doesn't give me lots of confidence about this season.. Canada has its borders sealed and the democratic cities are going for lock downs here.. i just want to see some devils hockey

Me neither.

Seriously, what was so difficult for those franchises to get?  Looks like everyone else got the spirit of “reverse retro”.  If the Isles and Rags were allowed to manufacture the equivalent of just another third jersey, then everyone else might as well ignore the reverse part of the equation as well.
