I'll bet that's the latest edition of the "Team Classics" series, which is the Indonesian-made throwback replica line that's been getting gradually more prominent over the last 6-7 years. A guy at SportsK told me the Canadian-made CCM 550 Vintage line is going away.

Did the old line have 2 levels of quality? I know in the Vintage line there was authentics but those at least mimicked the on-ice version. These seem to be replicas ($140) and super replicas ($180).

^ I think the throwbacks were only produced as replicas.

OK; I guess my decision is made as to what jersey to get. I'll just plunk down extra for the authentic Adidas quality. Thanks for all the information. :)

Ok, it's true so I hope Blackhawks don't screwed up this time.

That would be a nice matchup.

Those big aviator visors need to be brought back. Too bad we'll never get to see the mask Hasek is wearing ever agin. Classics

Watching Hawks at Pens.

Damn how stupid is this, Pens always in  black and the other team always in white. Same stuff every night.

Hawks should be in red on the road. 

Wish NHL would go back to white at home!

Yellow socks are superior, but the stripes needs to match  the jersey. Any concepts on how to fix that?

 

What about a compromise where they sock stripes aren't random but mimic the shoulders? I think with the bruins (being a classic team) you're always going to run into a design that either looks wrong (black socks) or is uniformly wrong (the old socks) and never have a winner.

Maybe a touch on the modern side, but honestly not a bad option for that uniform. I think having a big black stripe trimmed in white (provided the white is the same weight as the trim on the yoke) works as well; reverse of the yoke, so to speak.

I'm sorry but that looks more like something the Predators would use so in other words; not good.  Just bring back the previous sock design and they're back to having the best uniforms in the league.

Ducks are wearing Kariya Mighty Ducks and Selanne Third jerseys for the pregame warmup tonight.

 

I could be mistaken but, interestingly, the Selanne Thirds appear to be reproduced using a CCM style cut, despite this uniform being from the Edge era, and being almost the same as what they wear today.

That looks bad.  Just go back to the yellow socks and be done with it.  Actually, also go back to the 3 layer numbers as it goes with the striping.

Yeah, there was stuff off about the Selanne jerseys (thicker shoulder piping, the collar), which like you said is especially strange since it's almost what they wear now. They really didn't have any of these from two/three years ago in storage? There were similar reproduction issues on some of the Teemu throwbacks from his number retirement and the 2007 Cup replicas for the 10-year celebration last year.

 

And it was great to see the Mighty jerseys (and Paul Kariya) on the ice again, even if just a bit.

 

Although, the Selanne/Kariya Mighty Ducks throwbacks they were selling in the team store were absolute highway robbery at $500 a pop. Asinine.

With those Ducks throwbacks being made by CCM, I guess that does mean they still have the license to make vintage jerseys after being sold off by Adidas.

Same for the Bolts throwbacks from a week or so ago, i noticed the CCM tags on the ice for warmups.

I'm not sure, but previously CCM didn't use new logo on collar tags (I mean on vintage replicas), am I right?
