What do you think of the new NHL uniforms?
Well, Chantay, the new NHL uniforms have a lot of potential,I'll admit that. They could be potentially "ok," to potentially "disastrous."
USA Today has a sneak peak of the new uniforms. They don't look that bad compared to previous NHL All-Star uniforms, but then again these are supposed to be the big debut of the uniforms that the NHL is switching to next year.
Taking these uniforms at first impression, not too bad. But then we see the mock-up for the Caps uniform, and one gets really scared. Take that Buffalo! We now have the worst jerseys in the league! No one has to fear the Buffaslug when we've got these monstrosities.
So why is the NHL doing this? Well, they claim that the players will play better in the new Jerseys, but I never really understood that. Heck, with tighter "form-fitting" jerseys, it might negatively impact the level of goalie play. The fans will certainly look uglier in tight jerseys. My guess is that the new jerseys give the NHL a unique opportunity to sell more jerseys and really increase their income. Of course, the end result of that would be a higher salary cap for one year that would come back to bite a lot of teams in the butt. In the end, all we can do is pray that the Caps don't adopt the jerseys linked to above, and that common sense can prevail. Lofty wishes in the NHL if recent experience is anything.
Well, that wraps up another edition of the funtabulous "Ask FS!" If you've got a question that you'd like to see in future edition of "Ask FS!," just drop it in the commments section, or send it to the link in the profile.
And as always, LET'S GO CAPS!
