Alright, let’s assume that the AHL went under after the 1977-78 season, as it almost did in real life. The IHL was doing pretty well for itself, so naturally the AHL would be absorbed. What if the NHL went on strike in 1994 and again in 2005, ripening the IHL into a full-on competitor? Well, here’s that story. Here’s the current IHL logo in 2018: Teams for the 1978-79 Season (logos and jerseys as well as modern interpretations will be edited in in a few days) Yes, they will be higher quality! Fort Wayne Komets Home: Away: Muskegon Mohawks Port Huron Flags Grand Rapids Owls Flint Generals Saginaw Gears Kalamazoo Wings Toledo Goaldiggers Milwaukee Admirals Hershey Bears Rochester Americans Nova Scotia Voyageurs New Haven Nighthawks Springfield Indians Hampton Gulls Binghamton Dusters Maine Mariners Philadelphia Firebirds New Brunswick Hawks *yes, there will be original team names in the future
This is a concept idea i had if the Aeros ever returned to the AHL. I made a whole new logo with an F-35 Lightning fighter jet instead of the bomber, but used the nose art from it. On the Vertical tail is the #9 in honor of Gordie Howe. The background with the star is to resemblle an Old West Sheriff's badge to represent Texas. The shoulder logo is to resemble a US military roundel found on fighter craft with a nod to the flag of Texas in the striping. Comment and critiques as always welcomed.
Growing up in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the 1990s, I got to see a LOT of IHL games, and I always loved that league. As we know, the league ceased functions in 2001, but for this project, I'm imagining what it would have been like if the league actually did well! For this project, I'm going to imagine what the teams would have looked like if they continued on (in the IHL). Up first are the San Francisco Spiders, a franchise that only played one season in 1995-96. These are the uniforms they wore in their inaugural season: For the 1996-1997, the Spiders decided to add a third jersey: For the 1998-99 season, the Spiders changed up their font at the request of irritated fans and TV crews who found the original number font quite difficult to read. For the 2000-2001 season, the Spiders debuted a new third jersey featuring a new logo (the Spiderman logo). It was an instant success. Because of the huge success of the Spiders third jersey, for the 2002-2003 season, they decided to adopt it as their primary home and created an away jersey based on the design. For the 2006-2007 season, the IHL adopted the Reebok Edge uniforms like the NHL and AHL. The Spiders kept a lot of their previous identity alive in the new template. There is speculation that they may be re-designing their uniforms again for the 2013-2014 season. c/c?
