    Cool New Hockey Uniforms for '07

    For anyone that does actually follows Hockey....

    After working with the teams to see what worked and what changes were desired, there will be a drastic new look for the Uniforms.

    These changes will be head-to toe, and will be worn during this year's All-Star game for the first time. (From what I understand)

    The Jerseys will then be in place for the '07-08 season.

    Alot more form fitting , simliar to football uniforms, to aid in less pulling on Jerseys etc. Different pads, and Leggings as well.

    It will be an entirely redesigned line.

    Just in case you were interested.

    See.. I told you,just like I said


    Penguins star Sidney Crosby models the new "Rbk Edge" outfit which he and other players will wear during the NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 24.

    excerpts from a larger article....
    New NHL uniforms promise better play
    Updated 1/18/2007 11:22 AM ET
    By Michael McCarthy, USA TODAY


    The NHL is launching its biggest uniform makeover in decades.

    The league Monday will unveil sleeker, lighter, more durable hockey uniforms from Reebok that will enable players to skate faster with greater range of motion, while staying drier and cooler on the ice, says Brian Jennings, the NHL's executive vice president of consumer products marketing.

    Hockey fans will get their first look at the new "Rbk Edge" uniforms from official outfitter Reebok during Versus' live coverage of the 2007 All-Star Game on Jan. 24. All 30 NHL teams switch to the new uniforms for the 2007-08 season.

    The NHL and Reebok have been designing and testing the new uniforms for 30 months. That quiet period has spawned several myths, Jennings told USA TODAY. No, NHL players won't wear form-fitting garb like Olympic speedskaters. No, the new uniforms won't eliminate horizontal stripes, although some clubs will experiment with vertical striping next season.

    "They'll still look like hockey players in hockey sweaters," Jennings says. "But the jerseys have incredible technology that allows players to perform better
    All 30 NHL clubs will have the opportunity to redesign their individual looks this summer, Jennings says. Hockey uniforms for teams such as the Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens are revered as the best in any sport. Any change causes fierce debate. The Buffalo Sabres unveiled a new jersey last season. While some fans like it, critics say the new logo looks more like a "Buffaslug" than a bison.
