The Leafs are expected to unveil a new jersey to us tomorrow and I don’t know how I feel about it. This is not to say that the Leafs haven’t switched things up before – but whenever a change was made, they have – for the most part – always stayed true to the blue leaf.
Hopefully they will continue this trend and keep the Leaf alive. Personally, this is a team that isn’t in need of a change. Over the years there have been teams that desperately needed a change:
Coyotes – Check out these god awful jerseys. I suppose if the goal was to distract the opposing team, it was a brilliant move.
Ducks – I realize that this team was inspired by the Mighty Ducks movie – but still! It was bad enough that they named a team after a duck!
Kings – Sure, a crown makes sense – but purple and gold?
Then there are those jerseys that want to update – when the original looked better:
Islanders – The original one wasn’t fancy enough I guess – so they needed to throw a fisherman into the mix.
Lightning – Ok, these are third jerseys for the team – but does anyone actually call them the ‘Bolts’?
