NHL 2011-2012: Possible Uniform Changes

Recommended Posts

That color is notoriously hard to match in jenpro material, which the majority of those pads are made of. Chris Mason's second set this year is about as good as it gets.

How do you know the Blues equipment guys aren't just swapping out the number decals when they wear the alternates?

The Blue Jackets match the helmet numbers to their alternates and I'm fairly certain that it's just a sticker change as opposed to buying another set of navy blue helmets.

It would be easier to have the 3rd helmet instead of constantly swapping decals

Not just the third jersey, but the home and road jerseys are that cheap too. I ordered a road jersey and the total price (including shipping) was about $18.96.

I'm starting the Xmas rumor now, then. Happy Holidays, Kansas City!

Yeah those drive me nuts. Mason's alternate uniform pads are navy blue with the same light blue color as above used as an accent.

A friend of mine is the staff writer from BlueJackets.com and he claims that the manufacturers couldn't match the royal blue color, which is total bullspit. Just goes to show that the normies are dumb when it comes to color theory and color matching. Someone ordered the pads and said "yeah, he wants them to be light blue." and those are what came.

It's a somewhat unique color in professional and collegiate sports. The only other pro uses I can find are with the former Fort Wayne Wizards, the current Midland RockHounds, one of the past variants of the Peoria Rivermen, and in the logo of the Pittsburgh Steelers' throwback helmets. For colleges, I'm finding the U. of Central Missouri, Central Oregon CC, U. of Delaware, Eastern Illinois U., Elizabethtown College, the Fashion Institute of Technology (!), Hartwick College, and the U. of West Florida.

I would assume that these manufacturers carry a limited color palette, and since that particular shade of Blue isn't used much at all, they'd probably need to custom dye them. Maybe next season?

Well they've could've at least used the blues of the Leafs or Lightning. That would've matched closer.

Hmm. I placed an order (like $48 for all 3 replicas) and everything processed as so. Is there any way they can charge the full price if everything has gone through?

Idk if they'll honor it, it HAS to be a screwup, but I'm ordering one of the thirds. I might hate Reebok, and I might never wear it (partially because they're out of xxl), but someone has to hold it for posterity.

Anybody find any other teams with similar screwups?

I also don't believe they can charge you without first asking. I'm expecting an email saying my order is canceled any time now.

I checked every team, and the Islanders are the only ones. :cry:

EDIT: Tried to get one, shipping to Canada is $15, bringing it to $30. I'm not paying that much for an Islanders jersey.

Definately a typo. I wouldn't count on getting your stuff that cheap.

Yeah, I'm not holding my breath that that jersey will arrive. Might as well try though. :hockeysmiley:

I bought a 3rd so I can wear it ironically..(and because only one in my size)

When stuff like this has happened before I have seen the following happen:

A- They cancel all orders

B- They let the first XX go through

C- They honor the price(this almost never happens)

I remember a few years ago the Bears had a similar issue and I think they cancelled most orders but a few people go the jersey.

Also, it will help our chances by NOT TELLING anyone.. if they suddenly get 934234724 orders they will notice something.

I ordered a white one. I refuse to get that POS black rag and they were out of my size in the blue.

Unless they claim it was hacked, they have to honor their listed price(if you push hard enough). Some companies, in the event of a typo, or a mis-listed price will usually refund what you paid, and give you a voucher for 10% off or something.

Just ordered a black one. I already have a blue one and figured I'd pick up what I think is the worst jersey in NHL history for $13. Hopefully it ends up going through, but I'm going to assume it doesn't and be happy if it actually does.

I just ordered a black one also and agree with Billy B, hopefully it goes through but I'll assume it doesn't and if it does it will be a good bargain as the price actually matches the product.

They were out of my size on the home which I actually like, so I got the road. If it goes through heck, its a cheap pick up game jersey.

Hate the Isles though.
