Habs Unveiling Date Is Official

The Montreal Canadiens have confirmed the unveiling date of their new Rbk EDGE uniforms via their official web site. The date will be Tuesday, September 4 (just like the Calgary Flames) as I'd previously reported. That date is already in the sidebar countdown. Here's the graphic from their site.



Since that graphic doesn't actually reference the Habs specifically, here's a shot of their web site. You can see they're also taking pre-orders of the new sweater via the NHL.com Shop.



I doubt they'll do much to change it — just merely adapt it to the new cut like the Detroit Red Wings did. Looking forward to seeing on Tuesday. It'll be another big day in Canada.

They'll unveil it at their annual golf tournament, which is held on Sept.4... I would like them to keep the red jersey as it was but change the white one. GO Habs GO!

NO NO No DO NOT CHANGE WHITE JERSEY its a classic as is the red. Only younger folk with no fond memories of 70's, 80's 7 90's would dream of changing the white jersey which is a jersey that shouts out a frenchness that makes the Habs so vibrantly different.

I say change the away jersey to they're vintage alternate that they wore last year.

Well, their Vintage jersey (white with no red shoulders) is fantastic, and easily the best white jersey in the league.

I totally agree with the past two comments... Their vintage jersey should become their away one. That would be so sweet! Go Habs go!

Only a Habs fan would say their white Vintage jersey is "easily the best white jersey in the league".

Many, many fans are going to disagree with that my friend....
