I really don't like the jerseys the Canadiens are wearing tonight.
The third jersey. It's really not attractive. You can see examples of it on eBay.
Graphically, it is foolish. It features a thick large dark blue horizontal line halfway down, which means that the player - no matter how tall he is - looks small and boxy. His torso is effectively cut in half, to the eye at least.
The logo is ruined by the thick large dark blue horizontal line running right through it. You can't make out the logo lines in the center, because, as we all know, the logo is bordered in blue. The same dark blue as the thick large horizontal line.
The idea of the alternate jersey is a worthy one. Every team should have one. Many teams have more than one, and that should be applauded. They can recognize a historical event (Serge Savard retirement night) or just plain history (old-school logo), and so much more...
But it has to be pretty! If you spend most of the game examining the jersey... you won't be watching the game.
And that's the whole point, right?
