    third jerseys are back

    The Flames do the right thing and bring back the classic vintage 80s/early 90s look for their 3rd: https://www.nhl.com/flames/news/flames-announce-2018-19-third-jersey/c-300298876

    IDK, while the 77-80 design you show is indeed primarily navy blue, it really holds no other design element similarities to the 2011 WC. As mentioned, if you look carefully at the details, you can see the inspiration for the 2011 WC from the original 67-68 debut season style. Note the number font being virtually identical (just slightly modernized for the 2011 style), the pants being completely identical and the pin striping pattern at the bottom and sleeves also being an adapted carryover to the 2011 style. Getting back to the original point made, it's likely that Reebok's designers felt navy blue was a "hot" color for the 2010-2011 season and they used it for both the Columbus 3rd as well as the Pens 2011 Winter Classic since it was an element of each team's color palette history.

    Well, the Pens' 2008 Winter Classic was directly based on the 68-69 style (http://www.nhluniforms.com/Penguins/Penguins02.html) but their 2011 Winter Classic style really was one of the first "fauxback" styles that was somewhat based on vintage styles but was also somewhat new in its own right. The Calgary Heritage Classic one that was the burnt yellow and maroon was another fauxback example. I would say the Pens' 2011 WC incorporated more design elements from their original 1967-68 uni (http://www.nhluniforms.com/Penguins/Penguins01.html) including direct lifts of the shell, number font and striping pattern. Just reversed the primary jersey color from the light blue to navy to differentiate from 2008 and use the felt circular crest instead of the diagonal letters.

    The Blue Jackets unveiled the Cannon 3rd at the start of the 2010-2011 season and the Pens Winter Classic style shown above was for the game on New Year's Day 2011, so they are both from the same season. Jackets 3rd was likely worn first, though I did not research the first date it was worn. http://www.nhluniforms.com/BlueJackets/BlueJackets04.html Personally I feel the Cannon 3rd is a significant improvement to the Jacket's standard home look and has a ton of character, especially with the felt crest. I liked the old typeface for the names and numbers because it was so distinctive, but I'll keep an open mind to seeing the home/away font on the new adidas version.

    @HockeyMusic -- great batch of jerseys. Where did you get the Leafs ones done?

    It is good or not?

    I believe the eBay seller that had those in large quantities back in the day was "Griffenfood"

    Mfitz -- have you or anyone else had EPS strip an adidas gamer? Curious to see how the work came out if you have.

    Adidas NHL On Ice Jersey

    I would echo what JSH and mFitz said -- the adidas GW/GI definitely run a little smaller than the Edge 2.0s of the same size, at least in my experience. I've noticed the areas impacted most are in torso length most noticeably, then torso width. I've seen some differences on a team by team basis too. For example, a Capitals 56 seems cut a little tighter than some other teams' size 56 IMHO. If a 2.0 size 56 is very big on you, an adidas 56 will be less big on you and likely closer to a fit you desire. An adidas 58 will obviously be big on you, perhaps even a little more so than your 2.0 size 56, but not so much as that it would look or feel like a tent. As far as stripping goes, a key factor will be what team you are looking at and which style/color. Obviously a darker coloured jersey like black, navy, dark grey runs the risk of showing any residue that won't come off more than a road white likely will. Hopefully that helps! Good luck with your decision.

    The "RinkRats" custom jersey in the pic has the plastic adidas button on the front, so isn't it safe to assume that is Indonesian-made, not Made in Canada?

    Congrats Amonte. Whose did you get? Agree that it's a shame that they just "found" these now!

    Assuming the Caps (and all giveaway jerseys) were Reebok 2.0s? Were the sizes reasonable or were they the small tent variety?

    No "buy one, get one of equal or less value free" either? Double bummer!
