Oilers Tease New Sweater Online

Just a minor note but worth posting nevertheless. The Edmonton Oilers have a small teaser graphic of their new Rbk EDGE uniforms on their home page.

Like I said, it's not much but it does tell us that copper is sticking around a while along with the navy blue. This appears to be the road sweater. If I were to guess though, I'd say the home sweater will be blue and also have a blue collar.

The Oil will unveil the new jerseys to everyone on Sunday at the Joey Moss Cup at Rexall Place.

Avalanche Unveil New Uniforms!

I know we already saw images from Altitude, but this is the official post. The Colorado Avalanche have unveiled their new Rbk EDGE uniforms today. Photos follow.

There they are. Now here's John-Michael Liles modeling the new duds at a press conference in Denver today.

I think he's been surrounded by the fashion police. I apologize, that was awful. I don't think my head's on right today. But seriously, I've been a big fan of most of these new Reebok jerseys. I'm sorry, this is not what I had in mind for the Avs. They had such a cool uniform.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's end-of-the-world horrible, but it's not great either. Couple more angles.

The lettering and numbering will remain the same apparently, so that's good. What I do like that all the new jerseys have is the giant crest. Show off that logo! No need for it to be so small.

Anyway. Love 'em or leave 'em, there they are. Avs fans, it's your big day. Is a celebration in order or shall we go back to the drawing board?

Maple Leafs Unveil New Uniforms!

UPDATE (6:37 PM): Normally I wouldn't put an update at the top of a post, but this one is the exception. Just got a hold of an excellent photo of the new jerseys that should leave no doubts.

Darcy Tucker, Tomas Kaberle and Jason Blake model the brand new Rbk EDGE jerseys for the Toronto Maple Leafs. You can read the original post below. Thanks to Jimmy who also linked to this image in the comments!


Today the Toronto Maple Leafs unveiled their new Rbk EDGE jerseys. We're getting our first look via screen grabs of the Leafs TV broadcast. Not impressive quality but it'll do until photos are out there.

Plain is the word here. I expect many of you will have that to say. And could there be more blue? You can't really see the socks in this image, but here's hoping they aren't solid blue too. More to come when I get it.

UPDATE (5:11 PM): I mentioned that I hoped the socks wouldn't be solid blue. Thankfully, as you can see in this video still, they are not. The traditional three stripes can be found down there.

You can click on the picture to the left to enlarge it for a better look. (I think it's funny Kaberle and Blake are wearing tennis shoes with their uniforms. But the little things make me laugh.)

I'm still waiting for additional photos, but I'm adding more video stills to the Rbk EDGE photo gallery right now.

Newspaper Displays Ducks' Threads

A couple of people emailed in this tidbit. Apparently the Portland Press Herald had team photos of J.P. Levasseur and Jonas Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks wearing their new Rbk EDGE jerseys.

Not much to speak of. They're basically the same, but you'll notice the NHL shield on the collar as a main difference from last year's sweaters. You can see the original article here.

By the way, I know there've been a lot of updates about new jerseys in a very short span of time this afternoon, so if you're having trouble keeping up, I'll be adding all the photos to my official Rbk EDGE photo gallery.

Altitude Exhibits Avs Uniforms

The images were just sent to me, showing the Colorado Avalanche unveiling their new Rbk EDGE uniforms on Altitude. Our first look compares last year's sweaters with this year's.

I'm not normally one to judge these new jerseys negatively, but yikes.

I guess it's not the worst thing in the world, but it's certainly not an improvement. It's a shame because I always thought the Avs were among the league's best uniforms. Not so much anymore. Doesn't do the logo as much justice anymore.

But that's all just my opinion. Feel free to share yours below.

Buffalo News Shows Off New Sabres Duds

An image appeared in the Buffalo News today showing Brian Campbell wearing the new Buffalo Sabres Rbk EDGE home sweater.

As expected, there are no real changes to speak of but for the addition of the NHL shield at the collar.

You can see what I mean in this photo to the left. Looking forward to better shots and as you know, I'll have them here when they're available.

Thanks to all of you who emailed in this information. You guys are an amazing help!
