Diagonal stripes on an edge jersey?! No way!

The avalanche really need to bring back their mountain stripes now! I hope Sakic and Roy can get that done.

I love how Reebok told the Avs and Stars that they couldn't use their sweaters on the new template and now they're like "lol, I guess we can do sublimation for Anaheim"

They told Colorado they could replicate their pre-Edge design. The Aves chose to go with their current look.

And what effects do high altitude have on pot consumption?

The silver stripe on the left arm looks like a seam to me.

They went for the cash grab. Generic template or not their current look is different from their pre-Edge look. Ensuring they got a rush of sweater sales after the unveiling.

I wouldn't say it was a "rush of sweater sales". I still see a lot of of the old jerseys at Pepsi center...

If they came out with a good look, then there would be a rush.

"We've taken a look at your requests," said Reebok Assistant Senior Vice-Chairman of Uniform Design VancouverFan69, "and, to be frank, it's pretty lame. Green? Stripes? Tradition? An actual logo on the front of your jerseys? No. We've drawn up some suggestions for how to re-design your team:

  • Change your name to "Lone Stars". You know, like Mats Sundin and the 2009 Toronto Maple Leafs - the lone star.
  • Actually, scratch that. "Lone Starz". With a zed. Our research shows that teens are 43% more likely to find you up to 15% more hip (with a 96% margin of error, nineteen times our of twenty). Just ask the Brooklyn Islanderz about being cool - we're trying to dress them up in all-black!
  • Meet your new ambassador/consultant, Drake!
  • Well, no, actually. Drake didn't return our calls. So welcome your new ambassador: Lil' John!
  • Lil' John: *something inaudibale*
  • Alright, where were we? Ah, yes. The logo. Since you seem so adamant on having an actual logo, we'll give you one. But you're not allowed to use it on the jerseys (it's too heavy). We would put it on the shoulders, but that's where the numbers are going. You see, we've decided to add even more numbers. On the front, back, and sides of the helmet as well on both shoulders and the back! See how innovative we are? Our pals at Nike made some sick Olympic designs with shoulder numbers, so we decided we'd move the numbers there. After all, where else would we put them with the new short sleeves?
  • We've borrowed from your past and used that fantastic bull design you had a while back. It scored great results with our focus groups. Well, all except the teenage boys cohort. We're not sure why. Anyhoo, we updated him to make him look rad. He's even smiling, for the kids!
  • You'll notice that he's wearing sunglasses. This is to protect him from the harmful Texas sun for when we participate in the NHL's Stadium series next year. In fact, we're pushing to have a season-long Stadium series. All 82 games outdoors! Screw the Rangers, they can play in the AAC. Meet MLB's new Arena Series! Fields to small and easy to homer in that they rival Yankee Stadium!
  • On top of being hip and safe, the shades also cut wind resistance and help wick moisture. How? We can't answer that. Why? We can't answer that either.
  • To get more fans in the stands, we've decided to add leggings to your players. You know, to show off their "meat". It should help us with the teenage girl crowd. Also, we've acquired Thomas Hertl and Jeff Skinner for you. And Justin Bieber!
  • Rocket boosters added to the helmets. Who says we can't so this? Fine, we'll take them off. But we're taking the helmets with us.

"As you can see," continued Reebok Assistant Junior Vice-Chairman of Uniform Design andrewharrington, "we've created a look for you that, by our calculations, give you a dynasty somewhere between the 1960s Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1980s New York Islanders. Please do not question the integrity of our designers or our mathematicians. You plebeians simply do not understand all of the research and work that goes into a re-design like this. Until you do, your opinions are invalid, so shut up and unveil the jerseys already."

Proposal #1:

Generic    25

This is ruined by the 20 year patch.

Barely, but I understand what you mean. Would have been even more gorgeous without.

I really like the jersey with the Edge collar, looks really nice.

I don't think they'll be selling Edge versions, sadly.
