Whalers uniform makes an appearance for one game this season.

This is how you start an identity crisis.

Still not quite sure why they would wear them vs LA when wearing them vs. Boston or Vancouver would make far more sense (and I'm not even thinking about whalers vs orca)

Against Vancouver would be great.  Battle of the blue and green!  

 

Anyway, will look for ward to seeing those Whalers throwbacks on Jan 11.  About the only time I will actually make an effort to see a bit of a Hurricanes game.

If the Hurricanes are going to break out the Whalers throwbacks, I think it should only be worn against former Adams division teams, Boston, Buffalo, Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto.

The Hurricanes wore red on the road a bunch of times last year because Subprime Tom didn't like the road uniforms. Now it'll only be worn in 29% of their games. I guess they're not as good at choreographing their uniforms.

This is how you start down the NBA 82 jerseys in 82 games path...

LA has those white 90s throwbacks. That would make a fitting matchup. Vancouver would only really make sense if they got permission to wear the black skates.

I don't think LA is wearing throwbacks for it though.

They're on a 5-game road trip when they play at Carolina.  They may not want to haul the extra set of uniforms around with them for the whole trip.  Of course if they wanted to wear the throwbacks for the whole road trip I don't think too many people would object.

I've been thinking maybe the CANES jersey is a sign of things to come. The NHL/Adidas have shown us that the white jerseys don't sell well. They had a big, splashy reveal for the Adidas home jerseys. For the road whites? Eh, you know... whenever you get around to it. 

 

We're in season three of Adidas and I still haven't seen a white Florida Panthers jersey for sale anywhere.

I can't believe they've been using that garbage for over 10 years now.

 

Plus it will be forever known as their Cup winning logo.

So disappointed in the Fanatics replicas - they are honestly about as embarrassing looking as the Chinese knockoffs from a few years back. Wore my brand new Fanatics home jersey to a game last year, and my dad sees someone with the proper Adidas version and turns to me and says “How come yours looks like :censored:?”. Thanks Dad. But I couldn’t argue with him.

Unpopular opinion: I don't hate the Hurricanes logo. I don't love it, but I don't think its the hot garbage many on here make it out to be. I think with a little cleaning up/modification it can make a perfectly fine NHL logo.

Ive never had a problem with it and always felt people :censored: on it somewhat unfairly.

While we're on CanesTalk (patent pending), I'm not the biggest fan of the new flag logo. I think it's too tall and too thin (and maybe too bare).

 

Carolina Hurricanes (2019 - Pres)

 

I know it's an inaccurate flag, but I prefer the older flag logo. It's more balanced and has the triangle behind to add another element so it's not just an unbalanced flag.

Neither are strong logos imo, the original flag was fine as a shoulder patch. People are losing the plot thinking that they're suitable jersey crests, especially the double flag logo - that thing should never have come close to being a main jersey logo. Utter shyte.
