The Toronto Maple Leafs revealed their centennial classic jersey today, and it’s the one that you’ve already seen before. No, not that sweet Toronto Arenas leak, but the other one.

I’m not going to waste too many more words here, since we already did this two weeks ago. This is a poor choice. It’s a recoloured Florida Panthers jersey with a Leafs logo on it. The team has 100 years to work with and could have used just about any other throwback jersey in their collection, but instead presumably let Reebok take the wheel.
None of this will matter if they get two points on January 1st against the Detroit Red Wings at BMO Field.
tl;dr: It’s not ugly, but it’s also a team with 100 years of history to work with literally wearing a recoloured Florida Panthers jersey. pic.twitter.com/0rj1si1qYp
