Bruins look really sharp

Recommended Posts

They look almost identical to the normal black unis. They gave up the pooh bear alt uniform for a couple of diferent stripes?!? WTF?

:mad:

are you blind? different logo, the striping is completely different, it's a tie up it's a completely different jersey, it's looks as much like the current balck as the leafs 3rd looks like the current away.

they are completely different

The logo is very similar, just some additional outline on the current. This is my favorite set:

I totally agree with that set being the finest they've ever worn. As a matter of fact, I dusted off my VCR and popped in "Lechmere presents the 1990 Boston Bruins: Reach for the Stars" video tape this morning and it really brought me back to a better time. Not only for the Bruins, but for Hockey. God what I'd give to bring that back.

I still don't understand why people hate the current Bruins home/away jerseys.

I still don't understand why people hate the current Bruins home/away jerseys.

Well I have a few personal reasons....

They ended Cam Neely's career, it wasn't Samuelsons hit to his hip, it was these god awful jerseys.

Lackluster play, no way around it. They just have not played like the Bruins in these.

Nothing matches, it's terrible. The white sweaters I can deal with, but the darks, well.. they suck. They're just ugly, the huge white stripes at the hem, and running down the sleeves look terrible. Just a poor design.

Their 60's/70's jerseys were a thing of beauty, and then their 80's/pre-fleetcenter jersey were even better, and not only do they knock down the Garden, but they give us these pieces of junk.

Harry Sinden can burn in hell, along with these jerseys.

I want my childhood back, bring back the Neely Era jerseys ASAP. I grew up watching them in these and have about 7 or 8 of them in my closet, they're beautiful and need to come back.

I couldn't have said it better myself speedy!

The mid '70's through 1995 uniforms WERE the Boston Bruins. Those uniforms were classic and did not need to be re-designed. Not only did they redesign the to the current home/aways, they totally tore my heart out when the unveiled the Winnie The Pooh 3rd jersey's......The Bruins I knew were GONE!

The Bruins haven't been the same since October 1995 as you can tell they've pretty much hit rock bottom now.

I hope we are in for a good suprise for next year's uni's (solid white/solid blacks??)

Anyone notice that on the regular uniform they have the retro logo on the pants and on the throwback alt the have the regular logo on the pants?

Screw Larry Quinn...Mister "The Buffalo Sabres can't have two different sets of equiptment so our Alts. don't match the gloves/pants/helmets..."

Yea, I suppose its blasphemy to miss the playoffs for the first time in 13 years. I forgot, no one has ever had a bad season before.

The current Boston sets are 100x better than most of the jerseys in the league right now.

It's not like the Bruins are stuck looking like the Buffaslug jokes...

I'm pretty sure God intended for there to be only six hockey jerseys in all of creation and the original had six had dibs...

You nailed it. Great post. The Orig 6 have it going on and for the most part, no one else is even close.

If the Bruins take on the retro look full-time, fabulous. Then, when '08-'09 comes around, they would be wise to get their 3rd jersey idea from down on the farm in Providence.

That was the originaly the B's dark sweater in the 1950's and then demoted to part time use in the 1960's with the debut of the black jerseys.

They should have used their equivalent of that Providence jersey. Their alt this year is much better than their current jerseys, but I'm not sure I like them having two black jerseys. Yellow would've been perfect.

I think those are probably the best vintage set in the league, although I'd love to see the brown barberpole-ish look:

I also like these:

Maybe a little off topic here, but do I see a basketball player on the goalie's mask? Does anyone know what else is on there and why? Just curious.

Hannu Toivonen's mask was recently painted with pictures of Boston sports legends. So you'll see pictures of David Ortiz, Larry Bird (or Bob Cousy, can't tell from far away) and some Patriots as well.

I still don't understand why people hate the current Bruins home/away jerseys.

Because they're waaaaaaaaaaay too overdone. Too much striping, too overcomplicated redesigned logo. The 80's and early 90's were awesome and didn't need to be changed.

Really? I'm a hardcore traditionalist, and I think the current Bruins set is absolutely awesome.

Seriously, venom and hatred should be reserved for teams that actually deserve it, <cough cough> Buffalo
