  1. I do not care for the uniform. I feel their regular home uniform is far more aesthetically pleasing.
  2. Meh
  3. Can't say I disagree.
  4. I like it. Yes it's a roundel, yes the wolf is reminiscent of the yotes, but I don't care. Like that it's a bit of a faux back, the wolf looks less like the wolf man and the North Star is a nice touch. Should look good on a court and uniform. Excited to see the rest of the look.
  5. I was a kid/teen when RHI existed, but I remember loving the idea, and was sad when I learned it was dying/dead. Sharks games were too pricy for us growing up, and Rhino games were dirt cheap. They'd also give lots of tickets away to the local schools so we could go for free. Never really noticed the difference in the level of play when I was young. I thought it was a cool way for the warm weather markets, like where I was from, to grow the game and get kids and adults interested in hockey.
  6. As a San Jose native, I cannot explain the amount of frustration seeing them using the South Bay moniker. Yes, they have their own South Bay, but my inner hometown punk can't stand it. That being said, I'm actually a fan of what they did with it.
  7. It looks like he's kicking the puck
  8. It definitely looks cleaner, but I just don't like them moving away from the traditional crest. Maybe this Is a sign I'm becoming the cranky old get off my lawn guy, and not embracing design change.
  9. I love the return to the retro/faux-back looks, and would love for more teams to embrace and return to their traditional looks. That is not to say all should, just those whom have downgraded. As I do an unscientific look into the teams who have made the switch back, I think a lot of the teams were those who rode the 90s/early 2000s design wave. The Sixers, Wizards, Hornets (not sure if this one really counts), Caps, Kings, Suns, Padres, Sabres, Blue Jays, Jazz and Hawks all come to mind, and I believe are all we're upgrades. I have a question. Would the Golden State logo be a faux-back? It's not a copy of a previous logo, but they brought back the traditional blue and gold, and used a roundel with a bridge, very much updated (not even the same bridge). Maybe it's a faux-inspiration.
  10. Personally, I think these are two of my favorite changes over the last decade. I did not care for either's previous look.
  11. I'm not sure what Surfboards is, but it's lead to an awesome paint scheme. Digging that wood paneling look.
  12. I think the N is the prominent element in the design. The igloo is more or less a hidden feature that simply plays into the meaning or motif.
  13. Speaking of the never used Wolf logo, it was too 90s, and I'm sure the Nordiques would have moved away from it eventually and returned to the igloo or come up with an updated logo. All the major leagues have, or are in the process, of getting rid of most of the 90s looks. I guess this could be it's own thread, but the trend is returning to the retro or faux-retro looks, and a return to QC could go straight back to the classic look.

  15. If the NHL ever allows the Nordiques to return, I beg that they return the original identity. It was a classic, and one of my personal favorites. Maybe they can have some updated secondary logos, but the N igloo needs to make a comeback. There's nothin wrong with nostalgia, and keeping or returning to a club's classic/historic look. We're seeing teams in all sports return to thier classic looks, or at least updated looks with a splash of the past.
