The Hurricanes have the rights to the Whalers name and logo.

No one gives a crap about the Hurricanes.

People care about the Whalers.

 

Therefore it would be smart for the Hurricanes to market and sell Whalers throwback gear. Including sweaters, which are the high-end item. To not do that would be leaving money on the table.

Except every Hurricane fan. Unless your saying they have no fan base?

Bingo. Check attendance standings and local tv ratings.

 

Also the Hurricanes, even at the best of times, never once established themselves as a team with a national presence. No one outside of Raleigh cares (and evidence seems to suggest very few people within Raleigh care). 

 

Meanwhile the Whalers have a certain cache nationally. There’s a nostalgic aspect that makes the Whalers appealing to even casual hockey fans.

Can't wait for Winnipeg to bush out those Thrashers throwbacks. 

 

Calgary isn't afraid of its Atlanta heritage.

The Jets adopting the Thrashers' light blue is their tiny way of paying tribute to their regrettable roots. It's not like they'd reskin this thing with the Jets' logo/type set:

it would certainly be weird if the Coyotes wore Jets 1.0 throwbacks...

It would be a :censored:ing kick in the nuts for Winnipeg fans...This is no different and even worse considering Winnipeg rightfully got a team back.

 

Of course, the Winnipeg Jets could always turn around and kick Atlanta's fans in the nuts by wearing Atlanta Thrashers throwbacks...at a home game...against the Calgary Flames...who kick Atlanta's fans in the nuts again by wearing...Atlanta Flames throwbacks.

And for the triple kick to the nuts, play the game IN Atlanta

I guess i could understand it being weird for Hartford fans, but honestly they should just embrace it at this point. Hartford is never getting a team back. Might as well root for Carolina, especially when they are wearing the Whalers throwbacks. Thats the closest its ever gonna be to the Whalers coming back. And technically, it is the same team.

As a Tennessee Titans fan in Texas, I agree wholeheartedly.
