    I feel like these are all about sales. The creative process had to just be..."Will it look good with jeans AND khakis"

    I actually think they're pretty sweet, but I always like "plain" black and white shit.

    Isn't that normal for all star games? Not as big as on these jerseys, but they use to have their teams logo on the all star jerseys.

    Only 2 colors is east/west I guess.

    I wish they would have done a little color and tied it in to the ASG a bit. In 5 years, these will look like they came from a failed roller hockey program

    They used to have an NHL logo on front.

    Yeah, but they used to have the team logo somewhere (in 2017 they had one the shoulder I remember), with this years version its bigger on the middle of the jersey I guess.

    Yea bteam logo used to be a patch on shoulder.

    This whole idea makes no sense to me. Other than the recycled material.

    I guess the big logos is just so it will look more like a teams jersey in hope of selling more. Just business and profit as most things these days.

    Cool idea all around. I like that each player has a “different but the same” jersey.

    The white one's you can get away with I think. The dark jerseys, without any offsetting colors, look depressing.

    I guess I don't mind them. Seems like there is a better chance of someone buying an All-Star jersey if it still features the team logo of their liking primarily as opposed to the NHL logo. It could also be helpful for the broadcast that people can see more clearly who a guy plays for when watching the ASG?
