I actually like the simplicity. Reminds me of the old East vs West colours for sure.

If they'd bring back East vs West and go back to selecting the best players instead of having a token player from every team I might almost be inclined to care about the all-star game a little.

 

Jerseys are okay, but the all-star game as currently structured sucks, and has for a while.

Yeah. Personally, I'd prefer if we actually selected the best players instead of ensuring at least one player per team, even if that meant no Canucks were going. Would make it mean a bit more to be selected.

Exactly.  It's the All Star game after all, not a grade 4 track and field meet where everyone gets a ribbon.  East vs. West also puts some rivalry back into it.

For real, I don't give a crap who the best of the NHL worst Arizona Coyotes or Montreal Canadiens is. Send the cream of the crop, make it mean something to be an NHL all-star the way it used to kind of mean something. Don't have a player from your team at the game? Tough luck. 

 

Now it's a joke.

They could even make it worth something - like winning conference gets to choose if their conference (or the other conference) can be put into the draft lottery.  :bigblush:

i like them, a lot better than the jerseys from previous years in my opinion.

They're definitely better than those dog$&!# warmup ones the 'nucks are parading for the lunar new year.  I mean, my heritage is from that part of the world myself, and I still think those red-and-gold jerseys are gaudy as all &^@#.  :picard:

 

Not to mention that they got the writing all wrong - using simplified characters.  Simplified characters were created for simple minds, and the missing penstrokes make what were once beautiful words lose intrinsic meaning.  But I mean, what can you expect when you're dealing with people who (sometimes by deliberate choice) have no idea of what's really going on in the world?  :rolleyes:

Oh the memory of poor ole Kessel getting picked last and another year of OV wanting to get picked last and not getting that wish.

Simple all right.

I guess at least its not overly complicated, but still, its a fricken all star game. Of all the places its held to come up with a jersey I expected Vegas to have a little more glitz and glamour.  I always have to remind myself this isn't for me or my peers, its for the kids and for the sponsors.   So in that regard, I think they could have done something to stand out a bit more, a bit more fun.
