Doesn't look like the Wings will be using name plates after all. Place holder in sneak previews

 

The bottom hem still looks rounded as opposed to the concepts. Not bad in my opinion...

I don't. I honestly don't see what's so bad about the Devils jersey. I'm loving the butthurt reaction over it though. Going to make it that much more awesome when I get them.

I personally think the Rangers jersey is the worst. Mostly because it looks like a rangers jersey.

I don't think it's a butthurt reaction, lol. I think it's just that anyone who isn't a fan of the team kind of generally thinks their redesign isn't good at all.

What are the chances of JB getting the pro jerseys?

He has stated in the past that he doesn't expect to be able to get them.

I expected the Devils guys to be freaking out over removing the body stripes.  It's dang close to an apron design.

We seem to be the exception though.  Most Devils fans are in full meltdown mode all over social media.  Apparentlyant have already emailed and called the Devils to voice their displeasure.

Saw this on CCSL forums, but the Devils jersey quite literally is just a sweatshirt :lol:

Just like many here, I'm in regular contact with the Baron, too, and as of a few weeks ago he told me it's unlikely he or anyone else will be able to get the made-in-Canada authentics.

We don't know what the future holds but from the looks of it right now, our only hope of getting them are by buying gamers or TI's, which sucks for everyone but even more for those of us who wear smaller sizes like myself, which completely eliminates the option of customizing our own like we've been doing ever since the Baron started doing his thing.

What are everyone's thoughts so far on what you might do this season?  Personally, I only like collecting the Canadian authentics.  I can't see myself buying any Indo-made jersey at this point in time and certainly not the replicas.

As of right now, my only option seems to be to wait and see if we get access to those Canadian-made authentics in the future, even if it's a few years down the line, so it doesn't look like I'll be buying anything for a while in this new era.  Maybe I'll eventually grab a few gamers but for now there's not much available to me.  Even the TI's will be far too big for me and won't be available in 46's.

We've all been hearing about this for months now and it's disappointing for sure.  I was really hoping to get a Canadian authentic Golden Knights home for their inaugural season, too.

Gamers are too expensive and I would be too scared to ruin them so I stick to authentics. Definitely not going anywhere near the fanatics stuff. 

I am still holding out hope that the true, made-in-canada Authentics will be available somehow. If not, then I will probably resort to buying TI/GI jerseys when available in the smallest sizes possible. I usually wear 46s also.

May just hold off until the Rangers WC jersey and hope authentics are released as the home/ away styles have minimal changes.

If Canadian jerseys aren't available one way or another, I won't buy the inferior stuff in its place.  I'll live.  There's still a world of vintage stuff and gamers out there. 

Meigray getting Vegas is probably good for availability.  It'll take a while, but I'm sure that they'll have TI blanks eventually.

I was talking about the Devils fans general reaction on Twitter, a few forums, ect. Butthurt is exactly the word for it. They took a stripe away and you have people signing petitions and trying to call the team to complain at 10pm on a tuesday.

This.  It's especially easy for me since the Leafs jersey is pretty much unchanged.  If I can somehow land and indo for under $50 I'll consider it failing that forget it.

For what it's worth, adidas.ca has up info about the new jersey redesign (not necessarily products) but it contains this info:

I see a lot of similarities between these and what Adidas does with their Adizero MLS jerseys.

The funky "lightweight" material:

The collar text and colors:

The rubberized laser-cut crests:

And the stupid little stamp on the hem:

For what it's worth....the on-field soccer jerseys (adizero/formotion) do not have the adidas stamp.  I doubt the on-ice hockey jerseys will either
