(They should also probably do it against the Stars, but I highly doubt they'd wear throwbacks... to a different team :P)

 

In '92 the Penguins wore black on the road when they defeated the Blackhawks in white.

^ I like them. But yeah a red one would have been epic.

It's pretty wild to think that with all the outdoor games the Blackhawks have been a part of, they've never worn red outside. 

 

I dont mind this look, but it's so similar to the last Winter Classic uniforms they had.

That St. Louis goaltending legend...

 

...Martin Brodeur.

Hell, I already forgot that he actually suited up for the Blues.  He should be banned from Blues' alumni events. 

 

Edit: Just for reference, Brodeur played in 7 games for the Blues and 1,259 for the Devils. :rolleyes:

Trust me, no one really wants to see any of the goalies play except for Liut. Fans would much rather Cujo and Fuhr. Hell I'd be happy with Roman Turok, Brent Johnson, Jon Casey, Fred Brathwaite or anyone other than these guys.

St. Louis Blues announce Alumni Roster

 

Larry Patey (#6), Keith Tkachuk (#7), Dallas Drake (#10), Adam Oates (#12), Brett Hull (#16), Gino Cavallini (#17), Scott Mellanby (#19), Bernie Federko (#24), Peter Stastny (#26), Terry Yake (#27), Kelly Chase (#39), Scott Young (#48), Pierre Turgeon (#77) and Wayne Gretzky (#99). Al MacInnis (#2), Bruce Affleck (#4), Barret Jackman (#5), Garth Butcher (#5), Jamie Rivers (#6), Paul Cavallini (#14), Jeff Brown (#21), Bryce Salvador (#27) and Chris Pronger (#44). Mike Liut (#1), Martin Brodeur (#30), Ed Staniowski (#31) and Chris Mason (#50).

 

Roster is missing ALOT of fan favorites: No Curtis Joseph, Grant Fuhr, Tony Twist, Geoff Courtnall, Brendan Shanahan just to name a few. VERY Shocked to see #99 joined the group.

 

 

Bernie Federko unveiled the Alumni Jersey in the pre-game broadcast. It's beautiful!

Former owner Harry Ornest ruined a beautiful and bold identity. Great to see it back.

Look on the bright side. At least they didn't send you a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey*.

*And if you young in's don't get the joke google "The Hockey Sweater" (1980).

 

 

One of the few things I like about the new leafs jerseys is that they replicate the Hockey Sweater ones.

Tampa Bay looks like Toronto

Florida looks like Montreal

Toronto introduces a third jersey looking like Florida...

 

...Montreal introduces a third jersey looking like Tampa Bay!

It all comes together!

And I know he's part of the organization now, but seeing Martin Brodeur in that Blues alumni jersey is going to be one of the weirdest things I've ever seen.

Hell, I still haven't completely grasped the fact that he played for someone other than New Jersey.

They should do it again about 30 more times this season.

I wouldn't go that far... I like the black sweaters more than the white ones...

The mustard color was created accidentally, as they placed a gold material (almost a thick mesh, but not quite) over a navy material, creating a darker mustard color. The shade of gold was most likely darker than they used already, but looked even worse with this odd material choice. One of the strangest jerseys I've ever seen in person.

I've seen this spicy little number in person. It was a Cliff Ronning worn by a great big fat person.

 

I think they're trying to incorporate elements of this:

Or, more likely, pay homage to the vastly superior team, the Canadiens. 

 

Surely said it before, but forest green and vintage white fabric with leather-brown equipment (gloves, breezers, but not helmets) is what I wish the North Stars had wound up sticking around and doing ever since I saw the '04 All-Star Game. It feels old-time hockey and pond hockey at the same time. The Wild have come close enough, I guess, at least.

Sure, but then you can follow them on the road, like a hockey-groupie  ;)

So after sitting on this opinion for a few days, I have mixed feelings about the Blues Winter Classic Jersey.

 

The logo and numbers are made of felt, gives it that old style feel. However, the wear and tear on this jersey is going to be brutal. Any folds really show on the numbers, I feel like after a few times wearing it and washing it, it'll be really rough looking.

 

The winter classic patch would have been best placed on the upper chest rather than on the shoulder. It's everything that the jersey isn't. It's modern, all stitched and as it's placed on the shoulder, it makes that side very stiff. 

 

It's a nice jersey overall, but to me, it looks better on a hanger and not on a person.

The way I'm picturing it that doesn't sound all that bad. I'd love to see a concept if you're up for it.
