True -- would be similar to the Oklahoma City Thunder breaking out green and yellow unis.

 

At the same time, Avs fans like "HERE TAKE MY MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!" while knowing this uniform is already a complete disaster 💸💸

On the contrary, it would be more like the Thunder breaking out a Sonics-style jersey in OKC colors. Still not a good idea, but ever-so-slightly better. In hindsight, a Rockies Retro probably would've been better for the Avs.

It's only a disaster to people who hate the Nordiques identity, which there are surprising number of here, and people who are still salty about the Nordiques moving.

True, but the Devils have shown no desire to throw back to the Rockies and the cities are the same, which makes it ok. Hell, it's no different from the Jets throwing back to the old Jets. Technically the old Jets are in Phoenix, but does Winnipeg really care?

I'll never understand why hockey fans are so different than other sports about relocated teams.

 

No one cries that the Ravens can't be the Colts or that Indianapolis shouldn't wear the same uniforms Unitas did.

 

No one acts like the Timberwolves have more right to the Lakers identity than Los Angeles does.

 

It's just never made sense to me after two decades arguing about it.

I'm not sure, but some of elements that remind me of the OG Jets 1979-1990 uniforms. Probably a recolored version of the jersey.  But I had a second thought. the whole brand hints probably this is a Thrashers jersey in Jets' colours. "No, this is very unlikely!" Yeah, but this is just is a theory.  

 

I found out the Reverse Retro program is interesting but it's also bit lazy. They just switched colours or used their current colours in their past jerseys. I never mean the RR is bad, but I feels this program a lack of creatively.

The jersey collar straight up says 79 on it so...

I don't know about that. I actually think it's a pretty creative idea to have a league wide throwback program, but then modify the jerseys so they aren't just straight throwbacks.

 

And from what I have seen here and other places, it seems to be pretty well received (by and large) by everyone so far.

Because they have teams again. You dont think if the Browns never came back to Cleveland the  fanbase wouldn't be salty about the Ravens wearing Browns uniforms or Seattle wouldn't throw a fit over the Thunder wearing Sonics throwbacks?

So... Your second best example is a city that does NOT have a team again...

Please make that the N logo on the front of it... if you are going to go that far, you need to make it completely a North Stars jersey!

 

Please don't.  I know some people would love it if the Wild somehow became the North Stars, but they are not that team.  If Dallas had changed their name when they moved to anything besides Stars, then I think it would be okay like how it is with the Jets 2.0.

The Nordiques franchise is considered to be sacred amongst those groups. Quebec wants their hockey team back, yet the Avs have a jersey done in a disrespectful way.


That's how I see it.

No idea where this is from, but this would be a good compromise.

The Coyotes never touched the old Jets stuff for a reason

 

They had Jets banners in the rafters until the Thrashers moved.

Because it's a regional league whose league turned on the region.
