  1. It's been a long time since I've done an alternate history, my previous two, the original Ottawa Senators http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/73848-what-if-the-original-senators-never-folded/ and the Montreal Maroons http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/73802-what-if-the-maroons-never-folded/ Got some great opinions. but someone mentioned an idea (and I wish I remembered who) that intrigued me enough to go after, because it's nowhere near as straightforward as one would think. What if the NHL had taken more teams from the World Hockey Association? Of course we know that the NHL absorbed the Hartford Whalers, Quebec Nordiques, Winnipeg Jets, and Edmonton Oilers before the 1979-80 season, what if they took four more? Joining the NHL in this hypothetical are: Birmingham Bulls Houston Aeros Indianapolis Racers Cincinnati Stingers along with the usual 4. Now, this will cause some difficulties, for instance, the Minnesota North Stars wouldn't move to Dallas if there's already a team in Houston. Columbus won't be an NHL city if there's already a team in Cincinnati, and so on. However, I like following Doctor Who time travel logic in that some things are meant to be, so there'll be some familiar looks and logos throughout. So without further ado, the first team to be unveiled will be: Cincinnati Stingers Upon entry to the NHL, the Boston Bruins threw a fit over Cincinnati's jerseys, and rightfully so. They had just lost the battle over keeping the Pittsburgh Penguins away from black and gold, they wouldn't be beaten twice. The color they would add? Cincinnati Red. However, there wasn't time to redesign the uniforms that first season, and until proper jerseys could be ordered, red fabric was sewn overtop the original stripes. It would work for the first season. 1979-80 1980-88 The gold is lightened to yellow and a new look and logo introduced for the season. The Stingers were here to stay. 1988-94 At the end of the 1980s, teams were being discouraged from using gold at home in lieu of a white jersey. Cincinnati changes their home gold to white.
