NHL 2012-2013: Possible Uniform Changes

Recommended Posts

For the current home jerseys, scroll to the bottom of this page and it has a couple of videos about the design process and interviews with the ones in charge of it and the players who wore it. They were unveiled on November 22, 2008 and were designated as the home jersey in the 2010 and 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, before officially becoming the primary home before this season.

The current road jersey was "officially" unveiled at their annual Hockey Fest on September 11, 2011 (article). They wore them on the road in the preseason, and for their regular season home opener against the Blues. The next day, an article was published on their site about the jersey, and how it's connected to the team history yet modern (where have we heard that one before!).

I don't know why they kept the former primary for this year, and they liked it so much (not) it was shipped off to Saint Louis and Dallas for two November games, and hopefully it will be dropped this year in favor of the purple and gold "Legends Nights" uniforms becoming full time alternates.

As an FYI that we will all want to know about...

During the 2004-2005 lockout replica jerseys were being sold for $25 by Christmas time. Keep an eye on it, we may see similar deals.

Are you serious? That's awesome! If only I were the jersey nut 8 years ago as I am now :mad:

I'll be sure to take advantage of the opportunity if/when it comes.

Dead serious. My parents set a dangerous precedence with the 4 jersey Christmas of 2004!

Much as I like hockey jerseys, I'd rather have a season. But the Leafs are the Leafs, so maybe not.

If the jerseys were authentic, though...

I don't wear my Sens jersey enough to justify buying another one (I don't wear it at all) but for $25? I would probably get a Sens Heritage.

New Springfield Falcons alternate jersey. Interesting twist to this one as it's an AHL jersey from a WHL template as opposed to a WHL team borrowing the pro template.

I just noticed that the Flames didn't wear solid pants when they introduced the horsehead jersey.

The horsehead sweater was originally introduced as an alternate to this set....

They dropped the striped pants when they redesigned everything and made the horsehead sweater the primary road sweater.

That worked out great. Thanks!

Does anyone know... ?

It seems as though we've been waiting for years for the Stars to go green. Finally, it sounds like it was going to happen. The team got sold, and the new jerseys are in the offing apparently. We know it couldn't happen for the 2012-13 season but would take place in 2013-2014.

My question...I'm assuming the team is under some sort of November/ December deadline to get drawings to the league and kick-start the approval process for 2013-14. Given the lockout, is there a chance that the team will not be running as usual/ the league offices won't honor their request/ this will be very low on the totem pole and the jersey change will be aborted????

Why do I get the feeling we'll be seeing the league's worst set for this lockout-shortened year and next season? Fail!

2014 is considered the year for the change, but we don't know if it will happen. If it does, it looks like they are throwbacking there old star uniforms.

If I remember correctly I got...

Dallas - Hatcher

Colorado - Forsberg

New Jersey - Niedermayer

NYR 3rd - Blank

WSH 3rd - Blank (from my sister)

I believe all were $25

What kind of jerseys were they? If there's something similar going on this year I may have to scoop one up.

I remember getting an Islanders white, Sabres third (the red one) and a Winnipeg Jets white jersey for less than $100 during that sale.

The new Marlies jerseys are just a rehash of the Leafs' current jerseys

http://news.sportslo...w-ahl-uniforms/

It's all they needed to do. Would have liked to see the crown/leaf alternate return on the shoulders though.

Their new third jersey:

^If that doesn't show, here's a link. It will be worn at every Sunday home game.
