  1. I like what Nashville went with for the fauxback logo. There's a few issues with the perspective of the teeth (the back fang should protrude on the right side of the front fang), but overall it really fits the old school aesthetic. It reminds me a bit of the Hamilton Tigers. 1. Original 2. Navy and gold switched 3. Navy and gold switched + eye, nose, and mouth filled
  2. Can't believe I forgot Selanne. Half of his time in Anaheim was in that jersey! Went down the rabbit hole and found 4 more NHL examples. Martin Brodeur - New Jersey Devils 1991-92 Red/Green Uniform & 2010-17 Throwback (He wore the throwback more times than he did the original) Patrick Marleau - San Jose Sharks 1997-98 Teal Jersey & 2015-16 Throwback Ryan Smyth - Edmonton Oilers 1994-96 Blue and White Jerseys & 2011-14 Throwbacks (Main set rather than worn occasionally like all the others on this list) Lastly, other than the addition of the front number, there's Martin Biron - Buffalo Sabres 1995-96 Blue Jersey & 2006-07 Throwback (Looks like he only wore each jersey for 2 games)
  3. With the number of throwback jerseys/uniforms that teams seem to wear, some players get the chance to throw back to a set they wore earlier in their career. A few examples off the top of my head. Luc Robitaille - LA Kings 1986-88 Forum Blue and Gold jerseys & 2003-04 Throwbacks Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry - Anaheim Ducks 2005-06 Mighty Ducks Home Uniform & 2013-14 Throwback Shane Doan - Arizona Coyotes 1996-2003 Kachina Black Uniform & 2015-17 Throwback
  4. Hot damn, you're right. The logo is supposed to have the Ottawa Senators script instead of the laurels. The numbers aren't within the sleeve stripes either. Such a simple jersey and yet they couldn't get two of the more unique elements right!
  5. The Kings aren't wearing their heritage jerseys until February, against the Avs and Canucks. It's too bad that the Kings won't be wearing their heritage jersey because on the same road trip they'll face Carolina in their Hartford throwbacks.
  6. Changed the stripes and added an outline to the star on the white jersey to remove the yellow-on-white. Because of those changes, the yellow or the white could be the top stripe. Spolier contains the same designs with the thinner stripes.
  7. Ideally, I wouldn't put the yellow and white next to each other. Minnesota was lousy with yellow-on-white throughout their history. I modeled this set on the 1979 design, but there's definitely a way to avoid it in a redesign. Despite the consistency between the logos, the yellow star needs a border.
  8. Did not expect to see this much discussion, but the it is the North Stars after all. The following set, I imagined would have been unveiled in 2013, the same year IRL that Dallas switched back to green and Minnesota released their more traditional white jersey. Based on comments from @the admiral, @DastardlyRidleylash, and @Morgo, it's probably more likely that this change or something similar would have happened in 2010 or even earlier. Only change between the two sets in the white yoke on the first green jersey. The shoulder logo is a roundel with the N in the middle, a design which both Dallas and Minnesota have employed. Other potential directions to start from will be making the switch back to the N star earlier (late 1990s) or starting in 1991 ignoring the ST^RS look.
  9. I've been sitting on some of the suggestions for a while. I have an Islanders concept with teal, not a full timeline, and I have most of the what if the Canucks kept using the SiR (not sure where to go with it in the early 2000s). I did however finish the what if the North Stars never moved... First off, other than the removal of the word DALLAS, the uniforms follow the same trajectory had the team not moved. They keep the black heavy set that they introduced in 1991, darken the green and make the stripes thicker, then switch to the star template in 1999. One change is the introduction of a Minnesota patch in the same vein as the real life Texas patch. In 2003, the North Stars introduce a black third jersey with an animal head as the crest. They would wear it until the Reebok Edge era. With the new jersey cuts, the star template is no longer viable, the team is forced to redesign their uniform. They take the opportunity to finally add the word NORTH to their logo. They would later add a MINNESOTA wordmark on their new third jersey. This set takes cues from the Stars' awful Edge jerseys as well as the Wild's original set and alternate. The North Stars embrace the faux/throwback trend in the next update! It's been a while, but C&C is always appreciated! Other what if scenarios are also welcome and I will hopefully get to them without a 5 month hiatus this time.
  10. The wordmark and secondary should read "De Montreal." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal_Expos The Sens' wordmark uses D' because Ottawa starts with a vowel.
  11. I think even if they just made the collar green it would look better. Quick and dirty fix of that and adding white trim as most people have mentioned.
  12. Based on a quick Wikipedia search, I don't think it's ever happened going back to 1967. Let's see some history Avs!
  13. That's a good idea. I'll start looking into how things might have shaken out. I'm busy most of this week, but I'll have a few more alternate takes, so I'll that to the list.
  14. Plot twist: the Hurricanes could wear red on the road for the postseason! They've already played a red vs blue game in the preseason against Tampa. If they end up playing Washington though, well there goes that idea.
