Believe that they are doing this with the retail Hockey jerseys

I think the debate lingers because there are differences in belief of how much reebok was involved in the process. I apologize for the long post, but i gave everything i had read as i was searching for that original article. question for you Ronald, with that sweater, are there any reebok logos on it? I know inside the neck there's a tag, but if they were nice and left it off...i just haven't seen any photos of the back of one of those sweaters and i'm very curious. as for the sublimated numbers, i think that's horrible. the feeling of them is really odd. it's not something that's super expensive, and it makes it feel so much more worthwhile. now there are sublimated Cheap Hockey Jerseys, just like the cheap nfl jerseys, and that bothers me to no end. you simply cannot draw an actual conclusion based on speculation. Also, you briefly suggest that its the uniform style that leads to the poor design. That's subtly different than many of your previous statements, or I'm interpreting it incorrectly. Canada wore their normal uniforms for the world juniors. I figured that the Hockey had moved passed their hissy fit. Though, it would be fun to see Canada wearing those alts from the Juniors, sharp looking, classic style. I don't know what USA would do because their jerseys just have a designed USA across the front.

based upon the Cheap Canucks Jersey designs that have come up, some with horizontal stripes, some without, we must look at rbk's role. rbk was stated to be attempting to include vertical striping, but did not force it. They also wanted to remove the bottom stripes. Therefore, NHL must be making suggestions, and pressuring teams enough that some listened to them on this issue. we can extrapolate this further. the levels of listening. The Penguins and Senators wear the same jersey pattern, so we can imagine that they got a design from NHL and didn't disagree. NHL got their way fully there. Some teams wanted to keep their designs similar, but NHL talked them into small changes, like the Hurricanes, Maple Leafs, Coyotes, etc. NHL got part of their way there. Some teams wanted a new jersey but insisted on looking somewhat traditional, and the Blue Jackets, Sharks, and Stars got those new semi-traditional jerseys, insisting on some kind of normal-ish striping. NHL compromised there. Some teams insisted on changing only what was absolutely necessary, and wouldn't listen to suggestions, which is why the Canadiens, Rangers, Devils, and Red Wings look the same. NHL was rejected there. I'm willing to bet that your hypothesis is more factual than non. Again, and I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but I agree 100% on the 3-layer satin twill as opposed to the cheapened sublimated look. I can't even believe someone would prefer that version. Now does everyone see what John and I have been saying? I might have to look more into these, especially since i'm seeing some of the habs' 100th anniv jerseys as sweaters online. i have to make some decisions because I've been a hardcore anti-reebokist since the 10-template tucked-in uni-system was rejected right before the lockout. I don't have a huge problem with reebok, my problem is with the cheap flyers winter classic jerseys, but the last thing i want to be is a hypocrite.

My hypothesis is that NHL gave designs and suggestions, then pressured the teams into accepting them. Some teams gave in immediately, some held out and only accepted a few ideas, some bargained, and some stood strong. with the black ice bruins jersey, enough teams heard enough complaints that all but a few stood up to NHL and insisted on the design that they wanted, unaltered. That's where I hold hope. We have very little real information to work with, so I have a proposition. The NHL transition is surprisingly divisive and we have all witnessed and been involved with some of the results of that divisiveness. What I propose is that I undertake the task of discovering the roots of what lead to theWinnipeg Jets Jersey Cheap designs that we see on the ice today. I will compose an e-mail explaining my intentions in an attempt to open a dialogue or simply receive some sort of answer to my query. Failing that I will there are some other efforts that I may take. With the results that I receive I will type up a report which will be posted online for everyone too see. I will also submit the article to Chris and, if he doesn't have time to post something, maybe he could post my article. In the meantime I believe it best if we suspend what is a fruitless discussion for both sides. In terms of the validity of the research, well... if I can get replies from multiple teams, then I can see how the stories line up. Also, you guys have no reason to believe me, but I will post what I find and not what I want to find. I cannot draw an actual conclusion, but i feel that this is something we'll never truly, have an answer for, so just like any unprovable theory, you have to decide what the accepted answer is. that answer might change if new evidence arises, but i'm not holding my breath. So i must treat it like so many scientific questions, and work with educated guesses.

Used on a Winter Classic jersey for quite some time

The team that needs the "North Stars tribute treatment" is none other than the team itself, Dallas. I'd like to see the green and yellow make a reappearance. Whatever the Wild do, as many have said, it'll most likely look good. I can't believe it's already been ten years. They've flown by. Columbus should consider a red cheap kings jersey, but then again, they are called the Blue Jackets. Detroit could possibly adopt the Winter Classic jersey as their third, but I think that will be determined based on the jersey's sales. Chris, I agree with one of Leafers' points. For a team that has so much trouble in the sales/marketing arena, you would think the Devils would join the fray and adopt a vintage Christmas third for the holiday season. Even to wear the jersey from late November through January 10 or so would seem like a logical choice, and i'm a Ranger fan ! nce you're still here, I thought I'd take a moment to talk about what lies ahead for Icethetics. Many of you have asked what place Icethetics has in the world now that all the third jerseys are out. I assure you, this site was never about that. It simply got eaten by third flyers black ice jerseys news for a while.

For the Capitals, from the moment they started using their black pre-rbk edge jerseys, I have loved that capitol building logo. So far only two confirmed teams for next year, but I do believe there will be more as we get closer to the conclusion of the 08-09 season. Curtis, great post, it was an interesting read. I agree with Washington needing a third, whether the Weagle or the Capitol building. You have a really good grasp of what to expect. Heck, even Chris should look at your guess! As always, can't wait to see what uptates are coming for the site in December. I really wish they would bring it back in some way, shape or form. Maybe modify it a bit so it doesn't look exactly the same, and definitely recolor it to Red, White, and Blue. I like the weagle, but I don't think it would be that good looking as a primary logo. That's just my opinion though. I think I would much rather see them bring back their original Red, White, and Blue cheap flyers winter classic jerseys with the stars down the sleeves as a third jersey before they use the weagle. Maybe the ideas I come up with in my mind for the weagle being on the front are horrible and I'd just have to actually see them do it or see someone make a really convincing concept for me to like it. I can see Calgary's third next year being black with the old school white flaming C, maybe the same jersey design as the home and away. Again, another black jersey, but what else would Calgary do, yellow? I have to say that I was a little concerned at the start, but now I'm so jealous and want to be a Sens and Bolts fan! I agree on everything about the Canucks except that they should have gone for the orca on the shoulder. The Pens jersey should have been so much lower, because they just copied there Winter Classic jersey. They should have gone with a white jersey that sad Pens across it, although that would be overusing the Lightning and Sens idea. Chicago should have taken there winter classic logo but left the Winnipeg Jets Jerseysdesign. I also disagree on the ranking of the thrashers sweater, because I though that was awesome. And just to tell you, a gold boston jersey would look really ugly.

The Ducks should try orange. If so, they'd most certainly have to change the colour of the D. Those colours would not blend well at all. Maybe make it white with a black outline. The "random foot logo" is the foot of Bigfoot, the mythological sasquatch. Most false Bigfoot sightings have been in the group of states near Colorado as well as in the state. I don't think the logo should still be with the team seeing as how Bigfoot has nothing to do with an Avalanche. Or than again, maybe it's a Yhetti foot. They live on mountains, after all. But if they're planning on a third, blue would be nice. I certainly hope the Panthers don't just return to the blake wheeler jersey winnipeg. I'm not saying I don't want blue, but at least use another logo or something. Maybe just the panther's head. No stick. I'm also going to be introducing a new artist to you guys who will be creating most of the graphics for the new Logo & Uniform History section that will be launching probably after the new year. He's very talented and his work will make Icethetics a resource for information in its own right. I'm very excited about this project. More on that later. The only real glaring discrepancy from my own opinion is Ottawa's. That thing is right near the bottom of my list. You made the point that after seeing it in action it is impossible to hate this. But really it was the opposite for me. I didn't think it was that terrible until I actually saw it in game action.
