They are for sale in the arena tonight. They look a lot better in person other than the “jersey” part. Could definitely have used a little more red but I do like the numbers 

Are you seeing people wearing them?

I know some people don't like this but I love it, it's the only way our fan base can really get their point across besides not spending money on it... 

 

If anyone cared about the fan base’s opinion, these jerseys wouldn’t exist. Boo it all you want, nobody will care and nothing will change.

I agree nothing will change but I still enjoy those clueless suits hear their things get sh!t on. I'm not going to games for awhile so I'm glad someone's doing my booing for me lol

Also booing does work once in awhile, it got our goal song changed when the fans booed that lol it obviously won't work for these and these will be around for awhile unless sales bomb really bad which they probably won't either. Like the saying goes, there's a sucker born every minute lol

Also for any of the sneaker fans with lots of money, check out these for charity...

I thought I was being set up for a sneaker labeled “Sneaker”. 

Huge difference between changing the goal song and abandoning a third jersey that has a ton of money sunk into it.

Absolutely agree that's why I said the only chance these will go away sooner is if sales bomb big time, but really don't see that happening either. Although with that picture that @Devil Dan 56 posted showing a sh!t ton of PK jerseys, I don't know who is buying all those lol

I bought a Hughes sweater for my son.  It was easier to get than the RR's.  He likes this sweater and I don't hate it at all, I'm just not a fan of adding a black jersey.  I think the red and green were fine as an alternate sweater. 

But I can't wait to see what these look like on the ice.

Could you imagine if they actually used our logo and we didn’t become a freaking punchline with this stupid uniform? Those things would have sold out, this thread would have been filled with pictures of fans wearing them.

But no, we got the 1999 Jersey Shore collection from Aeropostale, created by Martin Brodeur, (REMEMBER FANS, MARTY MADE THIS!)

Yeah it seemed really weird. No Hamilton, Hughes, Nico. What a strange choice 

Yeah why SO many PK jerseys?  Makes absolutely no sense.

And you’re right jag, the rest of the jersey has kind of grown on me…but that “Jersey” crest really kills it.  Any decent variation of the Devils logo and this thing sells like crazy.

The booing won’t change anything. The nhl 3rd jersey rules say that a team must make a 3 year commitment with 12-13 appearances per season. We’ll see those things at least 36 times

I doubt the Devils ever do this, but what if they could keep everything else intact, and change the crest at some point?  Kind of what the Isles did when they ditched the fishsticks logo for the classics Islanders logo, but kept the rest of the jersey intact (think they did this for about half of the last season they wore that jersey template, before abandoning the look altogether the following season).

Would be one of the dumbest moves every made by this organization. The 3rd jerseys exist for this very reason to me. You create alternate logos for the 3rd jersey, make new ones every couple of years but ya never change the original now.

I meant for the third jersey.  That’s what I was referring to.

Ah gotcha, yeah I thought you were talking about the regular ones. Honestly I'd rather just an entirely new 3rd jersey when we get to that point. I want more red in it.

Sure, but if they’re committed to this general design for three years…guess I’m wondering if, based on negative fan reaction, if they could ditch the “Jersey” logo for a legit Devils logo for the final two seasons (rest of the jersey would remain completely intact).  Not that they will…just wondering if they would be allowed to.

I just think it's amusing...boos don't speak as loud as the number of jerseys that actually get sold.

Besides this is an alternate jersey in the end...not worth getting in a tizzy over.  It'd be a whole nother story if they were changing the primary logo and shirt to this but they're not...yet.

I think a lot of it is just the way the internet works. People love to have something to complain about, and “outrage” at something like this is almost to be expected.

Fair point although they cared enough to make Marty the point person on this to try to insulate from some of the inevitable backlash.
