I thought these reverse retro jersey's would go for about 170 CA ( not sure how much in USD) , same as the breakaway line from Fanatic.

When I saw it was regular priced jerseys (around 280 CA ) ...yeah no

They should have no retro jersey, unless it is a black suit, white shirt and black tie:

I wrote this the other day: "Maybe they spent way too much time deciding on their retro jersey to celebrate 20 years of failure and embarrassment.

It's no contest, the CBJ is the worst franchise in the NHL since its inception, even bottom dwellers as Arizona, Minnie, the Devils, and the Oil look good next to us.

Sign PLD and get some more offense in here now!"

But because I try to be a positive guy even though all the sports team I support are awful, I will promise to buy a retro jersey if the CBJ makes it to the Conference Finals this year. Now get some offense in here.

C'mon man !! We have our one offensive line (PLD; Bjork -both streaky scorers; Atkinson - MIA last year) - what more do you want ?? Torts will take the defensive skaters (Foligno; Jenner; Koivu) and give them 2nd line minutes. The offensive leaning players - (Tex; Bem; Foudy; Grig) will generously get 3rd & 4th line minutes.
Not sure what he'll do with Domi.

And we'll average 2 goals/game.

I have my eyes on Bemstrom , his development curve reminds me of Bjorstrand's

If they win every game 2-1 or 1-0, or lose in OT or shootout, fine with me.

Don't care about style points, I only care about results and playoff series wins. I'm tired of losing.

If we can make him a left wing or a center we'll be in business

Assuming Jarmo stays quiet for the rest of free agency and the season restart's in January I can see him being given that chance on the left next to Domi and Atkinson to replace Nyquist.

I honestly don't think they're that bad. I still don't like them but they could have been a lot worse.

Doing the 3rd jersey in the red/white/blue would have been a much better idea but I figure the NHL is going to do this at least a few more times over the next several years.
