Any chance some of the Reverse Retros become the next primary uniform for said team?

I’d love to see Tampa and LA take cues from their respective Reverse Retros with modern logos, though with Tampa winning the Cup this year and the Kings’ most successful years being in black and silver, it’s not very likely.

The only one I can see becoming a primary is the Edmonton white jersey. Maybe Dallas if they look really good with the star design.

 

But teams I could see keeping their RR jerseys as alternates for a while...

 

Boston

Florida

Ottawa

Chicago

Minnesota

Rangers

I'll take the new Wild one please as primary :)

 

The North Stars classic colors will definitely cool to see. But even if they did start using them again, I don't even think they can use the North Stars name because maybe the League won't want a name too close to the Dallas Stars, the team they moved to. If they were allowed, they would have changed the name a long time ago, in my opinion.

 

Unpopular Opinion: I kinda prefer the red, forest green, yellow, and vintage white, as well as the Wild name. I would hate to see that unique color scheme go, just to have the Minnesota Wild in the wrong colors.

 

I have a fondness for this beautiful fauxback they used a few years ago:

The current Wild sweaters are amazing, and it would be a shame to see them go.

And that’s not even the best version. The 03-07 is the Better version of this jersey. It had a gem stripe, and no faux-yoke piping. 
 

Minnesota hockey has been pretty lucky to have pretty great identities, name debate aside. (I also really like the Wild name, as much as the North Stars would be good too.) The Wild have a great logo set, beautiful jerseys, and an amazing color scheme. It would be terrible to see all of that go, to play fake North Stars dress up. I do like this reverse retro, because the Wild should be able to honor the state’s history,  (I’d also love too see a Saints throwback as well) but it shouldn’t replace the current identity of the team. 
 

The logo and colors should stick around for a long time...

The way these turned out, I have no clue why it’s called the Reverse Retros rather than the Retro Remix. They’ve consistently been using remix to describe them as it is. It’s both more factually correct and sounds better.

I need to chew on these a bit more, but overall I have to say that they turned out better than I thought. I really like the Devils, Kings, Rangers, Lightning, Caps, Whalers and Bruins.

That aside, my first impression of the Preds is better than I expected. Am I ready to say I like it? No, but it exceeded my expectations.

Having Wild Wing in a white jersey on a real white jersey seems like a bit of miss...would have looked better if Wild Wing wore an eggplant jersey. Plus the goalie stick isn't near the neck like the originals...would look better if it had the bigger logo. 

 

The Sens look better when the gold is metallic (which is one flaw of the new set...it's not metallic). 

 

The Jets one is cool but I would have made the "Winnipeg" in the logo red. 

 

The Coyotes should have made their numbers off-white (like they wear on the black jerseys)...it looks like the numbers on this are white. 

 

My favorites: Sabres, Flames, Hurricanes/Whalers, Panthers, Kings, Flyers, Pens, Sharks, Blues, Lightning, Caps. 

 

Waiting to put these on sale until December 1 (or 6th) is frustrating.
