Before we delve into this column, let’s be honest: talking about NHL jerseys is almost subjective.
For example-I know that the Colorado Avalanche jersey will always be the same, but I never have too much time, and I think it should be changed and new design long ago. But I know that many Avs fans don’t want it to change a little bit. People grew up with it and connected with it in the glorious years of franchising. I have not been attached to it since I was a child, so I am less emotional about it.
This brings us to the focus of this column: New Jersey Devils’ new third jersey – The first in 39-year franchise history. The Ownership of the Devils announced the new jersey on Tuesday. Although the results announced among the fans of the team were mixed, it is a good choice to wear a more familiar/colloquial “jersey”. When celebrities in New Jersey accept this jersey, it The new design may have an impact on popular culture.
The Devils said that this new version of their uniform is partly to pay tribute to the five players who have retired jersey numbers; the five stripes on the left shoulder represent Ken Danico’s No. 3 and Scott Stevens’s 4. No. 26, Patrick Elias’ No. 26, Scott Niedermeier’s No. 27 and Martin Broder’s No. 30. In addition, the black and striped pattern of the new jersey is a tribute to the professional hockey team from New Jersey: Newark Bulldogs (Canadian American League, 1928-29); River Vale Skeeters (Eastern League, 1939-42); Heze Sebring (Eastern League, 1960-61).
You can appreciate the attention to detail in the Devil’s new uniform, and still like the overall color choice of black and white, as well as a little red. In some ways, this is a takeoff for the current black and white uniforms of the former New Jersey (and current Brooklyn) Nets. This is the first time the Devil’s jersey does not include the short form of the entire “NJ” status, but it doesn’t matter.one of Toronto Raptors’ backup jersey There is neither “Toronto” nor “Raptors” in the front. Instead, it simply says “North”. Today’s jerseys are all about being as creative as possible.
In this sense, the Devil’s new jersey can be competent. It will attract New Jersey natives and those who move to the state. It will attract the attention of hockey fans accustomed to the vicious “NJ” logo and provide another source of income for teams that must operate in the expensive Greater New York City area. And this may trigger an explosion of small teams, shortening their overall team name: for now, the NHL does not call its Las Vegas team “Las Vegas”, but prefers The shorter “Las Vegas”. How long will it take for us to see only the word “Vegas” on the Golden Cavaliers’ jerseys? I said earlier.
If I don’t refer to the time and time that the Devil’s new uniform must go through in the test marketing activities and other jersey sales scientific research, I will be dereliction of duty. However, considering that New Jersey’s ice products are beginning to show stable results, now is a good time for their third jersey to change slightly. New era, new optics.
You may be a stubborn fan of the Red and Green Devils, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have different views on their performance on the ice. There are rooms. New Jersey will wear the “Jersey” team 13 times this year, and by the 13th time, you may get used to it.
If not, please start lobbying for the fourth Devils jersey.
