Caps To Unveil New Uniforms June 22

From the website:

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals will unveil their new uniforms at a special Draft Day Party on Friday, June 22, held at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. The event will be held in conjunction with the live broadcast on Versus of the first round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, which takes place that evening in Columbus, Ohio.

The new uniforms will mark a return to a red, white and blue color scheme – the colors the Capitals wore from their first season in 1974-75 through 1994-95. The Capitals are the first team in the NHL to announce their plans to unveil their new uniforms, which are produced by Reebok and feature the Rbk EDGE Uniform System technology that was introduced at the 2007 NHL All-Star Game in Dallas. The Capitals are the first team planning to have their new uniforms on hand at the NHL Entry Draft.

Further details about the event will be announced in the coming weeks.

Good to see the old colors....but is anyone else a bit nervous that they are going to suck? I guess they couldn't be worse than what we have now.

Just hope Ted and Co don't make us look like idiots out there.

Lock of the century on new uni's: some people will like them; some people will hate them; neither will care if the team wins (see Sabres, Buffalo).

Well, hopefully the Caps won't flat out STEAL their "new" uniform scheme....cough, Banana Slugs, cough....

At the very least, the colors alone should be an improvement.
