Well i guess i have to say that i'm not a huge fan of the little differences in the jersey. It does look a little pink to me but i'm sure that wont be case when we see them up close and personal.

I hate the stripe. To skinny and way to low.

I hate the NHL crest on the collar. Why couldn't they leave them on the back of the jersey. I Always thought that was pretty sweet. I also think that it the crest makes them look kinda of cheap. More like a practice jersey to me.

The shoulders bug me to but i can get over that.

Well i guess they will grow on us. Could have been worse.

Thanks TeeMan

I think it's funny so many people are getting bent out of shape over this. It looks like there's been virtually no change made to the jersey. Half the perceived differences could be just how it's positioned in the photo compared to the old ones.
The only thing that really looks different is the color, which I hope is just poor picture quality.


I agree I bet the logo is not different the jersey look a bit folded if you look at the new pics.....

I have a feeling that the logo didn't change, but that it was an idiot that did the setup for the picture. Also the new jerseys shown look like they have that pressed hanger look to them still. I have a feeling they'll look much better in person, but who ever got paid to take that picture should never be allowed to touch a camera again.
BTW it's $130 for the REPLICA... aka "Premier" in the new RBK generation. Bright side is that it's cheaper than Boston's. No team is selling authentic ones yet. Looks like I'm going to jump on a flight to Korea.
I am disappointed though that we don't have piping since it's all the rage this year hehe.gif
Edit: I wish we could see the back of them. I'd like to know if there is room for an arched name.


I am positive that I read that some things would be changing but the numbering and the arched lettering would not change. That was one of the things the wings would not budge on. Does anyone know why the lettering on the jerseys is always different in the pre-season?

QUOTE(Flip-check @ August 9, 2007 - 02:31AM) View Post

There is a minor difference. All I can say is just look closer--the new one does arc up and it's "stubbier", instead of sailing out to the side.
It doesn't matter that much, but like Offsides, I don't like the removal of the shoulders though. I thought those were a definite good part of the uniform... whatever their reasons for omitting them, they'll be missed.


The Cut of the jersey is different the shoulders would not work with the flow of the seems, if you look at your current jersey all the colors flow inside the seems, that is why they changed it, and really its no big deal if you have a problem or are gonna "miss it" you should probably re-organize some priorities.

I bet when they are on the players and on the ice, you will not be able to tell the difference.


Quoted as Truth, most players will were them a little big anyways if they dont like them being tight, MIke Modano for example he has always had a goalie cut size jersey.

Ditto. There really doesn't seem to be anything here to get bent out of shape about.

Considering what other teams have done to their jerseys this off season, everyone should be thankful there's no piping on the jerseys or some other awful thing.

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

the NBA, NFL, and MLB all have similar tags on their replica jerseys, I think the NBA and NFL have them on their game jerseys as well

Why were the characters in Scrubs wearing Wings jerseys?

Anyway, I'm hoping the arched names remain. Everything looks about what I expected it to.

Can someone please list all of the differences between replica and authentic? I definitely am considering the $130 jersey, but I don't want a shotty jersey. Does it still have a name and number on the back?

BTW guys, I noticed the old jerseys are 15% of on shop.detroitredwings.com, most of them at least. It's probably related to the new jerseys coming.

I don't watch the show, but I watched that episode because it was posted on LGW a couple days before it aired.

Basically, one of the characters talks about how the Red Wings are the greatest sports franchise in history. It was worth the half hour just to see that.

I'm pretty sure the show's producer or director or someone is a huge Wings fan.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

Cox is a hockey fan, and often is seen wearing a Detroit Red Wings jersey while watching sporting events.
The role of Perry Cox on Scrubs was written with him in mind, the script called for a "John C. McGinley type."

The Detroit Red Wings jersey Dr. Cox wears was given to John C. McGinley by his friend and current Red Wing, Chris Chelios.

In the episode Dr. Cox was trying to cheer up JD and they decided to watch sports together, Dr. Cox got him a wings doctor so he would feel included. or something like that, it was right after JD's dad died.

they could have gotten the numbers on the front......bleah! scared.gif


This jersey isn't personalized, so we still could get numbers on the front. scared.gif
But I trust that our management is smarter than that. After all, we don't have any piping.

All things considered, they could have been a lot worse. The changes are pretty much benign. My guess is the lowering of the bands on the sleeves was so they'd miss the "armpit" panel of fabric that runs along the inside of the sleeve.

i'm talking about a different episode. dr.cox and jordan go on a double date with eliot and keith. when there jordan tells eliot that perry tried to wear his chelios jersey to the date. dr. cox then asks keith what his favorite team is. he says red wings, and cox shows him his jersey underneth his jacket. cox then starts talking about why the red wings are the greatest franchise ever and tells him about there greatest moments. that is the only thing cox will talk about. so the next day at work, all of cox's people are wearing red wings jersey and are hopeing cox will actually talk to them nicley like he did with keith.
