What I'm hoping for:  FINALLY, a proper black jersey, complete with a Devils crest...and since a number of teams ignored the "Reverse Retro" part and instead designed what amounts to another alternate, I think the Devils should be allowed to do the same.  Keep it simple...just take the pre-Adidas red and black template, and 1) go with the Starter layout, 2) same as #1, but eliminate the red shoulder yoke, or 3) keep the red yoke, but round off the edges, and add a white border.  Nothing super-creative, but I can't see too many fans objecting to any of them.  Safe but solid and plenty practical, and pretty much guaranteed to please most of the fanbase.

What we'll get:  a white Jersey jersey.

I can live with nods to the Scouts and Rockies, as long as those nods don't result in a hideous design, and as long as the crest on the chest is the one we've all loved from day one.  MB3 came up with some solid designs, as far as that goes.

Marty: “Nobody liked my Jersey jersey, maybe we should get that guy who always posts about sodomizing our star players to design it…”

Early rumors are the Devils are going with a blue Scouts jersey with the Devils logo instead of the Scouts logo.  I would take that with a grain of salt though.

 

Apparently, the Avalanche will be wearing basically a white Rockies jersey as their RR 2.0.

Mentioned this previously, but if they insist on a Scouts-inspired jersey, all they have to do is swap out the blue for black and the yellow for white, and that will be a "Reverse Retro" that I think most fans can live with, as far as paying homage to yet another team that 90% of the fanbase couldn't possibly care less about.  And I'm sorry, I don't want any blue as a part of ANY Devils jersey, ever...the friggin' Islanders and Rangers wear blue.  

The Avs going with a Rockies jersey makes sense...probably some 50-somethings in Colorado who remember watching the Rockies in their youth.  And the Rockies' whites always had a nice, clean look to them.

I'm cool giving the Rockies to the Avalanche.  This just seems like such a perfect opportunity to take a mulligan on the Jersey jersey and throw a Devils crest on a black 00's jersey.  But I suppose that would be akin to admitting that they fvcked it up.

(I actually love the black kits aside from the lame script crest)

Agree in that it's absolutely an opportunity to keep things simple and just throw a black jersey out there that checks a few boxes...that all most fans really want at this point.  They won't do that though.  They need to feel clever and smarter than everyone else.  If we get a white Jersey jersey with "Devils" in script instead, I wouldn't be remotely surprised.   

Also agree in that the script "Jersey" crest really kills the overall vibe...they're not that bad otherwise, but for something that was supposedly in the works for so long, damn it's rather derivative:

It could only have been worse if they literally took them to the Seaside Heights boardwalk and had the "Jersey" airbrushed on. 

Actually, I'm not sure what would have been more Jersey than that.

With this team's track record of lying to its fans I have zero belief that 1) Brodeur had any hand in designing the jersey and 2) That they worked on it for 2-3 years.

I agree about Brodeur, not sure on the other aspect, only because someone here or on HF pointed out that the "Jersey" lettering was on a pin given to season ticket holders about 2-3 years ago. So either they were working on it for awhile or they just saw the lettering and just took it lol

In terms of whatever new jersey we get I'm in the whatever phase. Didn't like the green reverse, don't like the jersey jersey so don't have much faith in this new one. I simply won't buy it like I haven't bought the past 2 new ones. 

My only major complaint is having to see the jersey jerseys so much. 13 times(FOR NICO!!) is way too much.

Did they give away jersey jerseys to season ticket holders? I'm seeing way too much of them than I would have expected to see.  (or maybe since I don't like them i'm thinking everyone else feels the same way)

I actually dug the RRs...more than I would've thought.  For me the red really pops off the green base, so in an odd way you notice the red more than the green...it doesn't feel like the main color is green somehow.

And yeah I wish the Jersey jerseys weren't worn as often as they are.  Every time that I see them, all I can think is what a missed opportunity they represent, in that they could've come up with any number of designs that could've been SO much cooler...or at the very least, something a lot less easy to goof on.  Would love to know what some of the players REALLY think of them.

I see more of them being worn than I would've thought.

What's kinda odd is that with both the RRs and the Jersey jerseys, for some reason it seems like a disproportionate amount of Subban jerseys were manufactured for fan purchase...the guy isn't exactly the most popular Devil these days...never really has been since coming here.  Not like too many fans would buy him over Hischier, Hughes, Hamilton, etc.

I can’t find my post, thought it was in here, but you know we’re going red white and blue cause they will try to tie us with the sixers. Those three colors together should NEVER be on a Devils uniform. It’s literally our rivals colors.

Ef the blue, ef the owners, ef the “design” team.

I can't imagine that they would be THAT tone deaf.  Not that I know every last Devils fan on the planet, but I'm guessing most of them don't care a whole lot about the Sixers.  If there's one thing that I've noticed, it seems like those in the Philly region (a chunk of South Jersey is definitely part of that group) root for ALL things Philly...for them, it's strictly Eagles/Sixers/Phillies/Flyers...the point being that it's friggin' Flyers fans (who also like hoops) who root for the Sixers.  I don't see this crossover of Devils fans doing the same (not in appreciable numbers, anyway...not nearly enough to come up with a color scheme destined to piss off the vast majority).

Even if any blue in a new RR is paying homage to the Scouts or Rockies...I say fvck that.  NO blue.  That's a Ranger color, and the shade of blue that the Rockies and Scouts used is close enough to make it not OK with me.  Like I've said, it's not that fvcking difficult...if the design team insists on implementing either the Scouts or Rockies jersey template into a new RR, just swap out the colors for Devils red and black (hell, even green, though I'd rather see green left out this time).

No but you can get them for free with reward points, they were much cheaper until the last week when points have gone up across the board to get anything but before that it wasn't really many points so maybe a lot of season ticket holders got them that way but obviously no way of knowing that.

I wouldn't wear it for free so I didn't waste my points on it.

@Colorado Rockies 1976 a RR with a head nod to where the franchise used to be ISNT that hard but we saw how colossally stupid our owners are with the removal of the stripe as an homage for a team no one ever knew existed. They are going to screw this up and I have a horrendously sinking feeling they’re going to continue to make stupid uniform or logo changes.

Blue on our jerseys should be the one thing that unites our entire fan base in full blown hatred.

Well a good number of people who hated the Jersey jersey are eating up the “hat” unironicaly so the team will think they hit a home run and go for another. These guys are that arrogant and tone deaf

The MO under the current ownership seems to be to come up with a design that at best polarizes (the re-designed "Standard" home and away jerseys, the Jersey jerseys), then double and triple-down about how awesome the new designs are, and how us little people will eventually learn to love them once we get over ourselves.  I still think the Edge-era red and blacks completely wipe the ice with the Adidas design...all can say is that I've gotten used to the Adidases.  Still don't love 'em, never will.

I like the Heritage and RRs, but those were simply based off older templates...current regime had very little to do with those designs.  At least they didn't chop the shoulder yokes.  

So yeah, hard to give the design crew the benefit of the doubt that they'll get it right with a second RR design.  They want to be bold and creative and clever and "daring".  We just want something that feels right and represents us better, and doesn't have a bunch of unnecessary homages no one gives a fvck about (crammed in at the expense of an eye-friendly design).

Maybe it has something to do with PK's brand deal with Adidas? I noticed that too, even with the t-shirt jerseys

Undoubtedly. The RR were the same, Hughes and Hischier were available, but nowhere near as many as Subban. At least not in stores or online, not sure about the arena.
