The current Stars sweater is miles better than that throwback...  Please don't bring it back.

I think it would make a neat basis for an alternate uniform. But I also think the current set is good enough to not need an alternate.

Not impressive. Its not terrible, but it needs the blue shoulder yokes (like the current roads). Honestly its just boring. I prefer that concept with tri-stripe and the Arenas ‘T’. It just feels unfinished.

I need the Rangers to do me and the fanbase a favor: burn those winter classic jerseys. Burn every single one of them and never speak of them ever again.

Absolutely HATED those jerseys. The Norman $ Green $ jerseys is what I called them. The black ones were even worse. Long live the Kelly green and gold N☆.

Let’s hope that’s the full extent of white...

The Leafs jersey is nice. Interesting that they've gone with the white version of the logo instead of the blue one.

 I like them. There's something badass about them that the current "Kelly" green ones don't have.

I prefer the N Star also, but these aren't bad

If these ones used a lighter shade of green, like the first version, they would be better (The black jersey would have stripes that are actually visible). The thicker waist stripes are nice though.

But the Kelly Green and the N-star looked like garbage by the end of that set’s life. The oversized drop shadows, black breezers, and thin/thick black stripe inserts and outlines were a mess. It’s no surprise that they didn’t sell well enough to justify keeping them. I don’t understand why anybody likes this mess:

The ‘90s look (before the dark green) was honestly refreshing after the awkward BFBS bastardization of the old set. Besides, the Gunds and the Timberwolves (can’t stress the latter enough - North Stars fans should hate the Timberwolves for not letting them play at the Target Center) had screwed the franchise hard before Green got the team.

I don't see an issue with those. They look really good. Way better than the de-Northed set that followed. I'd like to think the North Stars, had they stayed, would have moved to forest green and vintage white with a simpler version of the logo, but that set is fine.

See, that’s one of my all-time favourite NHL looks.

The addition of black really worked well for that North Stars set. If anything, the white shoulder yoke was where it went a bit overboard.

Agreed.

The Mooterus and the black and gold DALLAS set are the only BAD uniforms the Stars ever had...

 

I love the early 90s set. It would make a perfect alternate to add to this set.

The N-Star with Black is one of the worst looks in NHL history for me, up there with the Thrashers’ Edge redesign and the Canucks’ yellow jerseys. I get why people like it, but I think it’s a giant mess of things that just don’t go together.

 

Still, the best uniform set in Minnesota hockey history is this:

...and it’s not even close.

Yowch. Did I just walk into the unpopular opinion thread by accident? :P
