From what I'm gathering, this is also what happened when Reebok introduced the EDGE jersey. 07-08 shows only home/away jerseys, then thirds were reintroduced in 08-09.

For some teams this is a shame (Bruins, Flames, Avalanche, Blue Jackets, Wild, Senators, Capitals). For others (Hurricanes, Oilers, Kings, Islanders, Rangers, Flyers, Sharks, Lightning, Canucks), this is very good news.

When you say "Flyers," I gather you're referring to their 50th anniversary jersey this year. In that case, I agree. But their 2012 WC jersey along with the Rangers alternates are two of the better ones I think.

What? A bunch of those alternates are fantastic. Hurricanes is decent and probably better than their home/away, Oilers are solid throwbacks, Kings have 2 great alternates, Rangers anniversary ones are solid, Canucks alternates are both better than their home and away.

Agree to disagree? I like the Hurricanes jerseys, the Oilers throwbacks are ok but hurt to look at, the yellow Kings ones are awesome but rarely used, the grey is meh. I'll never admit the Rangers alts are good (even though they may be) because I'm an Islander fan, and the Canucks alts are the same as the home ones with different logos.

Yes, the 50th anniversary ones are bad, and the ones I was referring to. Their WC jersey is good, but I don't think they wear it anymore, however I could be wrong.

Love the Kings purple/gold, but both the greys and the black/purple are awful.

I guess they'll wait for fans to buy the new Adidas home or away jersey before releasing new 3rd jerseys. That way the ones who would have bought only the 3rd jersey but who immediately want an Adidas one will end up buying 2 jerseys.

Probably better off not since there will be plenty that won't comprehend the "we can see but not say" rule until the official go ahead from Bauer and the thread will be littered with questions that can't be answered yet.

Every time that I try to go back they just feel so thick.

Never not used them. I don't really feel a need to switch.

The cuffs are huge and the color of the Warrior name bar is not the same as the other yellow. This bothers me.

Cuffs are huge? Please tell me this isn' t the first pic you see of Gretzky playing hockey. The "other" yellow is meant to be that shade.

care to guess how many MSHers probably never saw 99 play a game in his career? 1998-1999 was his final season. Scary thought......

For sure. But not watching him play live vs. never seeing a picture or clip of 99 in hockey gear is not the same! No? Just saying.

No worries. I'm with you because if you have never seen 99 in his work clothes, I don't know what planet you're from.
