Flames Announce Official Unveiling Event

The Calgary Flames officially announced plans via their web site to unveil their new Rbk EDGE uniforms to the public. They will be holding the event on Tuesday, September 4 at Flames Central. The unveiling will happen at 3:30 PM my time. I'll post photos as soon as they're available.



This image comes from the Flames' web site, indicating the big day. With the Canucks having unveiled their jerseys, the Flames are up next. Reports also suggest the Canadiens will unveil theirs on Tuesday as well. The team has yet to announce anything official in that regard.



We're all excited to find out what jersey comes next in that series. Exciting stuff!

If they're only half as bad as the Canucks one then I'll still be happy...

The Flames jerseys WILL be the same as the jerseys we've already seen for the Quad Cities Flames. The teaser video on the Flames web site confirms this (a careful eye will be able to piece together all of the subtle images in that video and come to this conclusion). Yes, we are unfortunately getting some of that pointless thin Rbk piping up the sides and down the sleves, but nothing as ugly as the Predators and Panthers have had to live with (Maybe Reebok designers have something against teams that use large cats in theri logos). The only item that has not been confirmed for the new Flames jerseys is the new shoulder crest. No more flaming horse head. If my suspicions are correct they will somehow try to incorporate the old Atlanta Flames style "A" (as they already do for the assistant captain designation) into the secondary logo, but I don't really have an idea how. Maybe I'm wrong on that, but I'm not wrong on the jersey itself. You can bet the farm on it. You can see exactly what they will look like (minus the new shoulder patch) in the concepts section of this site.

I'm hoping (as a Canucks fan) that they have "Calgary" emblazoned on the front of the jersey with that dumb horsehead... but... that's just cruel.
