Because this was awesome:



I really don't understand the accusations of clipart. I really don't.

I know they only have the best intentions by showing they are listening to the fans and taking some of the suggestions. And I absolutely appreciate where they are coming from. But this is a mixed bag to me. I like the addition of the bolt on the pants, but the black outlining does not go well with the rest of the uni. If they are going to add only a third color, silver would have been better as we can see today in the third jerseys. And as BradL pointed out, the worst part is the logo. I don't think tweaking can help this jersey.

Yeah it looks less clip arty than the original.. Just don't like the skew, though it's growing on me.

Objectively speaking, it's better. It's not quite where the consensus of "educated fans" seemed to want it to be, but it's an improvement.

They're saying there will be black on the gloves too?

Please keep in mind these are vector representations of the uniforms and not the actual thing. The black won't contrast nearly as much in reality.

Meh, not nearly enough black. They still scream leafs to me, but at least the bolt is back on the pants. I still probably will stick with my old stuff. These just do nothing for me.

Just really love the perfect simplicity of the striping on these sweaters...black on the numbers and bolts but not on the jersey stripes is kind of uneven, but at least our colors are still black and blue, unlike all 29 other teams including the Leafs.
