Out With the Old, In With the New

One more indication that a completely new look is on the way. Sounds like there's lots more than usual for sale.

The Washington Capitals annual equipment sale will be held June 16 on the mezzanine level of Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington , Va. The sale, which includes more than 500 items, is open to the public from 1:30 - 4 p.m.
The sale includes both new and game-worn items and will feature equipment from almost every member of last season's team, including items from superstar Alex Ovechkin. In addition, more than 200 game-worn jerseys dating back to the 1996-97 season will be available for purchase.

Yeah, I got that email too. Why does the club have so many old game-worn jerseys? And what's with all the posts today, Tarik? Gunning for #4 on the Washington Post Sports Blog Power Rankings?

I am no longer confident that I will be financially solvent through June. Should I be embarrassed when I pay way too much money to play beer league hockey with the equipment belonging to some 4th liner?

No reason. Just making lots of calls on stuff, waiting for people to call back. Lots of time in between.

Why does this team CHANGE uni's so much?
Thats one of about a zillion reasons why there isn't a tradition established with this organization.

Ted's feminine side coming out?

caphcky, how often have they changed unis. lets see:
1974-1995 (22 seasons) red white blue
1995-2001 (6 seasons) (white jersey/blue road/black alternate)
2001-present (4 season) (same white jersey/same black jersey)

so really, one significant change in uniforms in 32 seasons. of course, this doesn't count the switch from white road pants during the 74 season. which i'm sure you were aware of and including in your count. once again, your analysis is spot on. so many changes it's hard to keep up with. how many has buffalo had in the past 10 years? think then type.....

Wow! Even moderately knowledgeable fans know the ENTIRE NHL is changing uniform styles next year. (Not to mention your beloved Bruins have changed uniforms about 13 times over the years.)

Strange you would immediately inquire about the sexual motives of the Caps owner!

Do you like gladiator movies, caphcky?

While the entire NHL is moving to Rbk's new "uniform system", only the Caps and Vancouver are confirmed to be going with a whole new look. (Vancouver had an ownership change.) Some teams announced they are going with their alternates as their "colored jersey" since Reebok/Bettman outlawed third jerseys for the next couple of years. I think people have said that Dallas will need to go to a redesigned jersey, but I don't think that's been confirmed.

Is this an annual event? Anyone have any idea about price ranges for things? Are they set prices are do you bid on them?

Posted by: kenhockey | June 7, 2007 9:26 AM | Report abuse

Prices are fixed.

Yes Ted....
The team has been around since 1974 and is on its THIRD logo.....THATS LAUGHABLE! I know the NHL has mandated THIS change, but thats not the point. I don't care about Buffalo....its the typical Cap fan mentality, "well, what we did is STUPID but look at what some other team is doing"
(eye roll)

The upcoming Jersey change in the NHL is an absolute joke.
-No vertical stripes around the waist on ANY jersey!
So The entire original six will be forced to change the whole look of there Jers. what about the red Montreal jersey, no more stripes around the ribs.
The main reason in my opinion for the change over is that every minor league team on the continent will basically have to replace there current jersey in the next few years$$$$? Probably then it will change back.

Somehow I think it might just be IMPOSSIBLE to have a VERTICAL stripe around your waist... Unless you're lying down.
