No third jerseys for the Columbus Blue Jackets?

Light the LampSenior Writer IJuly 27, 2008

Just read an interesting article over on Hockeybuzz from Howard Berger. He lists all the teams that he knows will introduce third jerseys next season—and surprise, the Jackets are not on the list.

Atlanta, Boston, Buffalo, Carolina, Chicago, Dallas, Edmonton, Los Angeles, the New York Islanders, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Jose, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Toronto, and Vancouver are all confirmed to be introducing a third jersey this coming season
That is 18 of the league's 30 teams.
Perhaps Columbus won't introduce one this year—which would surprise me, given the success of their previous third jersey and the extra revenue it would generate.
Perhaps they want to wait a year to give their new design and logo more time to "brand." Perhaps they are keeping their third-jersey plans closely guarded.
If and when they do introduce a new third jerset, it's going to be real hard to top the new design they introduced last year—which to me, was equivalent to knocking it out of the par
If they were to introduce one, using their civil war hat shoulder logo as a primary on the third wouldn't be a bad way to go. Or they just may come up with a new design alogether—cannon anyone?
Here is a concept logo design I found from this site:
