Not the same as what's coming out next year. I have an RBK jersey too, like you say it's the same or heavier than most practice jerseys, but it's not the new material or fit. Besides, nothing beats a Southfield Warriors jersey! (I coach the 94 team, we skated after you guys on Mondays last year.)


Oh really... Must just have been a rumor going around the locker room. As for the warrior jerseys I can't decide if I like the old desgin or the new design better (If infact all the teams switch to the RBK's). I think I am leaning towards the old ones, especially the darks!

if your skating in the spring/summer wouldnt u still be skating in an indoor rink? so there for it would be just as cool as it would be during the winter/fall ! just wondering?


In the newer rinks yes, but a lot of our games were at the oak park rink which is very old. Towards the end of the season it was so bad we couldn't even zam the ice between games because there was so much water. So depends on the rink, but even the newer rinks do get a little warmer.

Yes, terrible. The red-white-blue jersey we saw was much better.

Troy, the RBK jerseys are HEAVIER? That's strange... they're supposed to make you 8% faster!


By Heavier I mean a thicker material. Weight wise I am not sure, never weighed them! I think a lot of the spead comes from the form fitting, makes it more aerodynamic.

I do not know anything about the color schemes, but material wise I have some information that might be accurate. This spring season my Jr. C team got jerseys from RBK to try them out and see what we thought. I do not know if these are the jerseys the NHL is going to use next year or not. However, if they are, the jerseys were made very similar to the new practice jerseys the NHL used this year. They are very heavy compared to current jerseys, and yes they are form fitted but they are not nearly as bad as it is made out to be. I had plenty of room to get my pads under it, and it was not skin tight. There were vents under the arms but skating in the spring/summer it is still very hot in them.

Again I am not positive if these jerseys are what the NHL is going to use or not, but marterial wise if these are the new jerseys they are actually pretty nice.

9) No no no no no! They better not increase the net size a millimeter before they seriously crack down on goaltender pads. Decrease the ridiculous trapper size, decrease the blocker a little bit, shave some more off the leg pads, and definitely work on preventing the Michelin men goalies like Luongo and Giguere.



I agree that the nets should not be changed at all. And the pad thing has been addressed again by the league. When purchasing my new glove I found out that leg pads, blockers and trappers have all been given new size specs for next year. Being a goalie I was kinda dissappointed that I was going to have to learn to play with new stuff, but my new smaller trapper actually made my glove hand more effective. Being a goalie, the only concern I have about smaller equipment is the protection on the fingers of the blocker hand. Already I take a lot of slapshots of my index finger of my blocker hand, if my blocker is shorter I can see this happening a lot more. Watch and I bet there will be a lot of broken fingers next year, otherwise I am all for smaller equipment, it just makes goalies faster!
