Concept Jerseys

If there's one thing I've learned over the years of being a Sens fan, it's that most fans think they could do a better job at almost everything involved with the team if they had their chance. It's one of those things like how everyone thinks they have a good sense of humor, or is a good kisser or good poker player. Sometimes it works out, like Jacob Barrette and the Sens heritage jersey, which was an unprecedented hit, but usually it's more miss than hit. Well hockey jersey site icethetics has given fans the opportunity to design their own version of a new jersey.

My take on the white and black concept jerseys are that they should remain just that, a concept. I know a lot of people want the 2D logo to return and I'm not against that but this is not the right 2D logo to use. The jersey itself is too plain and average, if not minor league looking for me. The gold leaf featured on both makes it look tacky to me.

For my money, these look like a crappier version of our original uni's from the early 90's. I would be way more receptive to just going back to the original jerseys without the new influences. I think our current kits are far superior to these. But hey that's just my opinion.

They do have a high rating however and people seem to like them, so maybe it's just me. What do you think of the 2 concept jerseys?
