New Leafs Jersey Early?

It was expected that the new RBK EdgeLeaf Jersesy would be unveiled on the 13th of September, but CBC have apparently got their hands on what the new jersey will look like… Watch the video inside!

I like the Silver, and the larger Maple Leaf, but no New Logo like I thought there was going to be. With so many stripes on their socks it will look weird with none on the jersey and it looks really plain and tight.

    I had actually seen this rendition before around the web, but I did not give it too much thought because of the lack of the “NHL” emblem on the collar. If it is true and CBC did their homework and this is the actual jersey, there is some things I do like about it, but overall I think it is a step back.

    One thing to point out, two females I asked (although they were standing together over my shoulder) thought the jersey was “stylish” just like the female who said on the video, which makes you wonder if with these looks the NHL/RBK specifically are trying to appeal more to the females. After all, it could be just impression, but I feel most men will just buy the jersey regardless of what it looks like…unless both the team and the jersey are terrible. So if the look appeals to females, it could mean an increase in sales of jerseys, which I am sure would be one of the aims.

    I have seen what is also supposed to be a leaked version of the Penguins jerseys and pants, and I tend to think they are the actual jersey, and I am not too fond of the pattern and the amount of Las Vegas Gold on them, but the pictures also did not show the front, just the back of the jerseys. The Pens are supposed to also unveil a patch to be worn throughout the season, but I have yet to see it or even find out what it is about.

    The Leafs new jerseys are gayer than eight guys blowing nine guys

    Meh…..it's alright, I like the shape of the jersey but the logo is way too big.  Stajan's reaction was the best…"they should check with us, we have to wear it all season" LMAO…fantastic.

    ***UPDATE (Aug. 31, 10:35 a.m. EDT): RECEIVED THIS NOTE TODAY FROM A LICENSED STORE OWNER WHO HAS SEEN THE NEW LEAFS JERSEY.

    "Exact same shirt as last year, minus, TML shoulder patches, bottom stripes are gone, (sleeves stripes remain). Silver twill is gone. Number font is the same as last year, block style, basically Marlies lettering — blue, white blue, and white blue white. Names remain one colour as per last year. Very, very plain."

    This is from Howard Berger's column on Hockeybuzz.  Take it for what it is worth!

    Clearly, the greatest jersey ever created by man since the dawn of time is the Maple Leafs jersey.  It has the best logo (Ottawa's is the worst – a condom ad) and includes beautiful color and texture to ice it.  Even Pablo Picasso could not spawn a more creative masterpiece.  It is a true miracle in the world of arts and crafts, and its features are the product of impeccable artistry, dexterity, ingenuity, and virtuosity.  Indeed, it's overall adroitness will forever be unsurpassed.  Every intelligent, knowledgeable and objective hockey observer already knows these things.

    hahahahahahahahahahaha… that was great…

  10. leafy says:

    Indeed, hopefully it's not a case of fixing something that isn't broken.

  11. modk09 says:

    agreed, well done leafy

    GO HABS GO

  12. modk09 says:

    i dont understand why half the teams are going for the practice jersey look, less striping, monotone colour, etc…

    the leafs, sens, red wings have all gone that route and it has produced very boring jerseys IMO. I really hope the habs jersey doesnt come out all red with blue and white stripe on the arm and a logo with nothing else…

    He is over the hill so it would make a lot of sense.

  14. prayin-for-the-wce says:

    At least its better than the new Canucks jersey.  What a fugly jersey

  15. leaffansareajoke says:

    They have to stop altering the Logo's.  It defines teams for all of us.  They've made "minor" changes to the Flyers logo, should look really dumb from what i picture.  Ths logo as of now is so basic, any minor change will destroy it.

  16. leafmeister says:

    except for the oversized logo I think it is pretty nice.

    Ok one more time for y’all this is not the new leafs jersey. I happen to have a picture of the new Leafs jersey. Leaked by an owner looking to make big bucks. I only payed 150.00 to get it. But here it is.

    AND THIS IS FOR REAL>>>>>>>> http://bp3.blogger.com/_r8tWGVHrjGI/RtiHxZXYL9I/AAAAAAAABoU/g5mK9WFnAgo/s1600-h/leafs.png

  20. leaffansareajoke says:

    You paid 150 bucks to see a picture of a jersey?  You could have just waited and bought one….

  21. rodsnick says:

    thats not even the jesery, the actual jersey doesnt have any stripes at the bottom of it

  22. TheSource2659 says:

    Yes it is!! I have complete confirmation. Also there are people who payed alot more for that pic then I did.

  23. kabby420 says:

    is it just me or do those jersey's look alot like teh practice jersey's they use now? and when you go to any store in toronto and buy a parctice jersey it's like 40% cheaper then the game jersey's. so i suppose they will now be charging full price for, basically, practice jersey. this is more queer then a three dollar bill

  24. rydyas30 says:

    The  logo is way to big. It just seems to pain to me. There has to be more to it then what was  shown.

    Flyers Edge Jersey as portrayed to season ticket holders in some literature.

    I have also seen a clandestine picture taken in an unnamed store with the same exact jersey being held by a person.

  26. rodsnick says:

    no there are no stripes, and the logo is supposed to be much bigger from last years……just go to
