2004 All Star Jerseys

Anybody see this season’s All Star jerseys yet? They’re on the NHL’s website for purchase:http://shop.nhl.com/store/category?category=27354%2C167%2C%2A&productline=NHL-04ASAUTH&item=NHL-04asauth-001

AS IF!!! Do they really plan on making money by selling these?

How is it that the All Star Jerseys can go from things of beauty to THESE in just a few short years?!?

What is the fascination with the retro look?

What’s with the words “Eastern” and “Western” spelled across the front?

Is there no originality left in this league?

Must everything have laces now, for crying out loud?

I understand the color choice because its being hosted by the Wild, but come on — ZERO POINTS FOR STYLE HERE!!!

If I want to see a crappy jersey, I’ll watch some Coyotes or Avs games! (or Vancouver on “Retro Night” — poor Alex Auld.)
