NHL Stadium Series Jerseys

Recommended Posts

That's supposed to be "futuristic"? Other than the chrome crest, that just looks like a normal (and poorly-designed) hockey sweater.

There'd better not be an ugly contrasting nameplate on the Kings' version. That has never, ever, ever looked good and will never look good.

I really like these. 7/10

If they were to fix the yoke so it goes all the way around (don't cut out Reebok logo), remove the chrome in favor of orange and remove the chrome logo to put the pants one in its place, and remove the contrasting nameplate, then this would get a 10/10 for an alternate jersey for the Isles.

Wow, the Islanders released an actual half-decent alternate jersey.

In other news, I saw a flying pig today.

Looks they're really emphasizing the New York aspect of their logo before their move to the city.

Contrasting nameplate and Reebok wordmark yoke cutout on the back. I've gone from ambivalence about these and crossed into dislike.

Me too. I did not mind the chrome logos for the Stadium Series. But once I saw the back, I went from thumbs up to thumbs down. I hate contrasting nameplates with a passion. And no explanation needed for the Reebox.

Not bad. Much better looking than the alternates they wear now (but then again an oil stain in your garage looks better than the current alternates) but solid none the less.

Nothing can top the almighty fisherman jerseys in terms of coolness but I will give these a thumbs up.

At least Reebok's fake laces are light years ahead of Nike's. At first glance, you wouldn't even notice that they are different from the usual Edge laces.

Flyers' white nameplate on orange. Then and only then.

I will concede that the giant numbers are a nice accommodation for the big crowds far away, but the chrome is just stupid.

No it has never looked good

Other than the fact that the logo doesn't match anything else on the jersey, it is not a bad design. That goes out the window but when paired up against another team with the exact same jersey, just in a different color. It's like something out of an old video game or lower budget movie/TV show--the same uniform design, just in a different color.

I dont think the laces are fake (unless of course they went to the trouble to sublimate shadows on them)

Assuming it's an authentic in the photos, the green tape inside the neck would suggest that jersey is an Indonesian-made fauxthentic. And no identity-defining Hanger Effect?

The chrome is foolish but I really like the overall jersey; probably the best colour combo' in the NHL (well, them and Edmonton lol).

Not fake as in not real laces, fake in the sense that they don't tie anywhere. I don't see anything so far to suggest that those two laces are connected in any way.

The Kings jersey is terrible. A chrome crown would've been very sharp. Or the old Chevy logo. So much potential thrown down the drain.

I thought so. Having trouble posting photos on this computer, but something was posted yesterday in the 2013-14 NHL Changes thread.


I'm really beginning to wonder whether the Isles are going to demote their crest upon their move to Brooklyn and just use the NY as a primary logo. What do you guys think?

I think you mean the t shirt that was posted, that wasn't the jersey. It was just showing the front logo and number

they won't. this has been debunked ad nauseum by the owner of the team, the general manager of the team, the CEO of the barclays center, and pretty much everyone in between. brooklyn-inspired patch added to primaries, new black-and-white third when they move.

as far as the stadium series jerseys, i think the critique of them on here is way too harsh. you haven't other jerseys, so you don't know how much of this was based on choices the islanders made and how much is cookie cutter. that said, i think they look pretty sharp. don't like the diagonal sleeve striping or the fact that the yoke stops so that it frame the reebok wordmark, but other than that, i enjoy it.

I don't even like those. If a team has to have a contrasting nameplate, making it part of the yoke like Carolina has done on their new white sweaters is really the only good option.

Technically not a contrasting nameplate, because the nameplate is the same color as the fabric underneath it.
