yeah. i heard that the NHL logo on hatch and rathje's jerseys was a mistake... when the sewed the names and numbers on there, the guy thought he was supposed to put the NHL logo up there, too... at least that's what i heard.

No really, I missed it. I've been so busy with the start of the school year and getting ready to coach my football team, as well as getting my College fantasy and two pro league teams ready for the draft - I've missed NHL news, so it's news to me. Wow, I better come down to Earth :wacko:

So what are we saying, that Rathje and Hatcher had the old logo, or that Forsberg had no logo at all? Cuz I thought I saw it at the bottom in the second pick.....on a related note I just got my Crosby jersey today and it's a 'ting a beauty :D

No.

Rathje and Hatcher had the new logo, but it was on the neckline (like the NFL does.) Forsberg also had the new logo, but on the back where it usually is (not on the neck.)

This is going to re-hash something that was probably thoroughly discussed before I discovered this board. But I think the Flyers' black jerseys don't have enough orange. The numbers -- at least on the sleeves -- should be orange.

If you didn't know about Forsberg to the Flyers you probably hadn't heard of the rest of the load of big stars changing teams in the past few weeks... prepare to be shocked come October :)

The black sweaters need to be ditched all together. The orange sweater was classic and a signature of the franchise.

Totally agreed.

I'm also glad the shield isn't on the neckline. Way too NFL-like.

Agreed. The all-black uniforms could be worsened only by a return to the long pants. The orange stood out and would look great - only the Isles wear orange-bodied jerseys, and they're alts, but how many teams wear black jerseys?

The orange alts they have now aren't a good substitute - the two silver shadows are OK but unnecessary since the rest of the crest isn't metallic, and the sleeve striping doesn't say "Flyers".

Of course, this could all be for nothing, if the "sleeker" jerseys force a major redesign in '06...

Yeah, the orange jersey screams "70s", but at least it has color in it. I absolutely hate watching home games because my $2,400 TV looks like it is broadcasting in black and white.
