NHL Backing Off like the NBA Did?
Is the NHL starting to go back on their revolutionary uniforms that players started complaining about before the season?
According to sources in the [Bruins] dressing room, Reebok has been unable to correct problems with the new jerseys introduced this season across the NHL and will replace them at the company's expense with new uniforms made of the old materials. Players have complained since training camp that the new jerseys, which are supposed to be lighter and allow sweat to evaporate out through the shirts, have instead trapped water inside and gotten heavier. . . .” (Boston Herald)
Trapping water and getting heavier instead of being lighter and faster. Oops. At what point in the “PDCA” cycle do they step back and say “OK, maybe that didn't work out.” Sports leagues (as with businesses) don't like to admit mistakes, do they? They're about 10 games into the season, how long should the players have to complain before management listens to them?
