Another Adidas Wings jersey tease

I don't like the concept of adding a "name bar" to the Wings' jerseys, but that's just me:

Here's the previous "teaser":

I agree - I don’t like the name bar either. Each letter should be on individually.

The name bar confuses me, what is the point? Is it to make it easier for the equipment manager to put names on the jerseys? But doesn’t he have to put it on the name bar THEN onto the jersey? Doesn’t that add a step? Why not just put lettering straight on the jersey.

Hate name bars!  Make jerseys look cheaper which they probably are

Bring back the CCM jerseys!!

I’ll go one step further…Bring back the old ‘Eastside’ sweaters.

Little Gary maximizing every last revenue stream. Last year Reebok , This year Adidas, next year ads on the sweaters….

It may be his job to increase revenue, but that doesn’t make the game better, and I don’t have to like it.

Down River Dan, you do realize that adidas owns Reebok, right? They’re just rebranding their NHL presence.

I hate the name plate.  I also hate that when buying a jersey the authentic jerseys will be branded with the Adidas logo while the replica jerseys will have Fanatics branding.  Although, I’m well past the stage in my life of buying current player jerseys so I guess it doesn’t really matter.

Name bars are disgusting.

Has anyone seen the Duck’s teaser jerseys? Is there no name bar on the Duck’s jerseys or am I looking at it wrong?

I refuse to spend any more money on this franchise until we hire a competent GM. Don’t even care about the new building. I’ll wait.

The RBK retail jerseys have the name bar, so this all depends on whether or not the picture is of the jerseys the players will wear or that fans will wear.

I am pretty sure its not a name bar and more just art of the stitching of the jersey.
