As a Wild fan and a designer, I wanted to take the night to sleep on it. First takes can often be too reactionary.
Whist I have my complaints (the stripe not going around the whole sweater, no hemline, etc.)
This is their best dark jersey yet, and to that matter, they had perfection with the (now current) whites, so why change?
(Minnesota sports have long had teams with different home and away templates)
The Wild have always had a problem with their logo being so green, on a green background. I think it calls for a bigger keyline then you'd functionally want to use. Thats why they've trapped it in roundels or used a script.
A center stripe is a damn clever way to solve this issue.
I know a lot of you love the inaugural uniforms, but my unpopular opinion is that they were our second worst. (the reds they just retired with no hem stripe were awful.)
The gold was too prominent, the logo got lost on the greens. The whites were okay, but the numbers were silly and hard to read.
This is a new franchise, in a state that really likes to pat itself on its back for their hockey tradition. The vintage stuff sells very well here. Expect it moving forward.
