Another Reason To Ditch The Black Uniforms: Money!

Mets PoliceSenior Analyst IJanuary 5, 2009
Two observations: First, and rather obviously, is that these teams released third jerseys with a distinct retro and/or traditional look. For many of them, that meant literally recycling older jerseys with a tweak here and there. In fairness to the other teams that released alternate sweaters this season, sometimes it's easier to remake a classic than to create an original.
Second, if these are the top sellers according to the NHL, then there's only one black jersey (Boston) among the top six. Which actually fills our hearts with hope, even if for a moment, that teams will shy away from the dark side in creating new duds.
