No News Yet From Leafs

It's almost 6 PM in the east and we have yet to hear anything from the Toronto Maple Leafs regarding a third jersey announcement. I'm as confused as anybody since a lot of different things seemed to indicate today being the day — not the least of which being a schedule from Reebok.

I'll keep an eye out for the rest of the night and I expect emails from you guys should you hear anything first. But it's not looking good. There isn't even a mention of a third jersey on the Leafs' web site.

However, tomorrow is the unveiling date for the Edmonton Oilers' third jersey and they do have a graphic on their web site promoting the event.



That just leaves the Atlanta Thrashers on Wednesday and there still isn't anything official coming from them. Hmmm...

Maybe Reebok's having a little fun with us. Reebok, you kidders, you.

When you get to the video portion of sportsnet you should see a video that says Leafs trim roster and unveil new 3rd.

If not for the fact that we already know exactly what this third jersey is going to look like, I'd be disappointed.

it is exactly what everyone is expecting.

the marlies also unveiled a 3rd today and it is butt ugly. And it totally goes against "Mcfarlane's rules of a good logo." It has a cheesey looking dog on it, which is holding a hockey stick, and has the team name underneath it. it so ugly.

Please tell me that is the Reebok replica version of the Maple Leaf's third and that they haven't put that front tag (in the stripe) on the authentics, too.

I'm glad to see this alternate make a comeback

cptjeff said...

Yes, that would be the replica. Every replica NHL jersey these days has one of those dumb tags, and none of the authentics do.

The real ones don't even conform to the normal authentic sizing. They're built to individual player measurements.
