Part 30 of 30. All 30 NHL clubs have unveiled new jerseys under the new Rbk EDGE Uniform System for the 2007-08 season. Here at the NHLToL, we're going to review every one of them. Read up and then rate the new sweaters. We'll do a full ranking after completing all of the reviews.
Wednesday, August 22. The Senators unveiled their jerseys at a fan event in Ottawa. Chris Neil, Brian McGrattan, Jason Spezza and Chris Kelly were on hand to model the sweaters.
Home vs. Road
Home: Red. Road: White. The two sweaters are essentially mirror images of each other with secondary logo patches on each shoulder.
The red home jerseys have a white panel on the elbows. The underside of the sleeves are black extending the length. There is white side paneling toward the back of the sweater. The collar is black and the primary logo serves as the crest.
The white road jerseys have a red panel on the elbows. The underside of the sleeves are black extending the length. There is red side paneling toward the back of the sweater. The collar is black and red and the primary logo serves as the crest.
In The Details
A new numbering and lettering style has been introduced.
New & Old
With the introduction of new logos, the uniforms have changed drastically. The swooping stripes on the old red jersey are gone and the overall striping patterns on both jerseys have been changed. There is really not to compare between the old and new sweaters.
Numbers on the front? No.
Laces at the collar? No.
NHLToL Editorial by Chris
Many have pointed out the similarities in style of the Senators' jerseys to those of the Penguins. That being said, these are quite plain as well. Not that it necessarily hurts this uniform set. But it could be much better. The red is very sharp. I'm glad they went with that over black for the home sweaters. The road jerseys, however, could use a shoulder yoke or something. There's too much white and not enough color. The logo doesn't work in favor of the white one. Looks great on red! In any case, it's still a solid effort, if not slightly boring. My favorite Sens' sweater, if you were wondering, was last year's black third jersey. 3/5
