There was an interesting note in yesterday’s Post story about the Devils’ rash of injuries: could the NHL’s new jerseys be playing a role?
The old tactic of immobilizing and blinding a foe by pulling his jersey over his head had been minimized by the mandated tie-downs on the inside back of the previous jerseys. They didn’t work Monday.
Arron Asham said the jerseys are coming apart, literally, at the seams.
The NHL is going to want to watch this, if they’re not already. Unless the NHL knows about the fighting issue and this is some kind of crazy way to cut back on fighting. But even then, I think it would be easier to just put pillows on the ends of the sleeves. Or maybe even kittens.
