2020-2021 NHL Changes

Recommended Posts

Also, like, the Flying V was REVILED at the time. Like, not even in a "so bad, it's kinda good" way, it was flat out despised. Players hated 'em, fans hated 'em, pretty much everyone but management hated 'em. People considered the Kachinas ugly, but the Flying V's are a whole 'nother level of ugly from any other ugly jersey in the league's history.

 

Suggesting that should come back as an alternate over something like the WCE-era jersey is insanity. At least that look isn't considered one of the most embarrassingly stupid design gaffes of all time like the V is.

Dunno if it's that one specifically. My hunch is that it's a blue and green WCE-era jersey, but of the standard design rather than the alt;

So one of these in the modern colors.

Each year in that video is a date a jersey came out. The Canucks black/red 3rd jersey was released in 2001

Right but in all my time discussing the Canucks identity in various places I have never once heard someone genuinely advocate for the Flying Vs to return as the full time primaries.

 

However, we're not talking about a full time switch. We're talking about an altered one-off in a gimmicky jersey series. I don't see why the Flying V is so horrible in that circumstance.

Blues going red confirmed.

 

Cats were one of the navy 96s, as well.

 

Rags were the navy and red 96 with silver.

Almost all these numbers correspond when a particular jersey was released. I don't know why this is so hard for people

 

NYR's Lady liberty debuted in 1996

 

Blues 90's jersey debuted in 1995

Kinda disappointed the Isles are going for a recoloring of their Dynasty unis instead of the "beloved" fisherman.

This is just a photoshop of their current third jersey.

Yeah, I was the one who photoshopped it. Just wanted to see what the design would look like on the adizero template

Because whether it's a one off or full time alternate, you still want it to look good.  The Flying V in any colours, does not.

Disclosure: This is a concept, and not mine.

 

 

I like how that dude is doing a mock up of a jersey and questioning the red and couldn't even google the damn history of their jerseys.

Besides, they did just throw back to the Flying V for the 50th, why would they just reuse that in different colors instead of doing a new design?

Pretty much 90% of the Reverse retro are going to be garbage

Someone on Reddit made a mockup of a purple Peyote, like a lot of us Coyotes fans are speculating their Reverse Retro will be;

And it looks pretty friggin' nice.

I may be in the minority here, and while a white Hartford jersey may look cool, I hope it's a more Carolina-focused throwback, even if it is in a white and green colorway. As a Canes fan I'm cool with the Heritage night jersey 1-2x each season, but otherwise, leave Hartford in the past...

If all they're doing is catering to the fanbase, that's one thing. I personally think that the reduced revenues due to Covid are why this whole initiative is happening, as sales for new jerseys should help soften that blow. If you take that view, what focus is likely to sell more: Carolina or Hartford?

Look, people can argue until they're blue in the face if the worst was the Flying V, Buffaslug, or Peyote Head, but I will forever hold that it is Nashville's Mustards for one reason: not only were the aesthetics hideous, but the jersey was flawed functionally, as well. The chest wording peeled, and the double layering makes them heavy, hot, and uncomfortable to wear. They are misery incarnate.

I can't be sure (@andrewharrington could tell more about this) but I guess Reverse Retro was designed and approved much before covid so pandemic has nothing to do that Hurricanes chosen Whalers scheme uniforms and with whole concept by general. Money? That's a different talking.

The revenue point would stand on its own, even without Covid.

We're nearing the eight month mark since Covid hit the sports world like a...well, plague. That is plenty of time to put together something like RR, especially since the premise is primarily color-swapping old templates (a bit of an oversimplification, yes, but only a bit)
