2020-2021 NHL Changes

Recommended Posts

The Wild never should have gone with a red home jersey. It was a good alternate, but weird for a primary. And as Ad has said before, they only wore their green jerseys on national television, and in the playoffs, resulting in them essentially being a green team anyways. 
 

And their green home jersey is one of the best in the league. No need to change back to red...

 

I also would love to see the North Stars RR as an occasional third, because the colors are so great! But the current branding of forest green, red, and cream is great, and it should stay for forever.

Can the Wild go to green and gold and it be a non issue? 100%

 

Should they? I wouldnt like it, because I really like the green and red and would hate for the NHL to lose it.

 

While I like the Penguins RR, it comes with a problem that the vegas gold era jerseys had. Makes the penguins look like a black and white team with gold accents and not a black and gold team.

The Flyers took on the orange and black from Philadelphia's original NHL team, the Quakers. There's no reason why the North Stars' green and yellow-gold can't be used by another Minnesota franchise. Totally agree with @MinnyHockey.

 

The difference is that the Flyers have been a orange & black team since day 1. They didn't wear a unique colour scheme for 20+ years then arbitrarily decide to dress up as the Quakers.

 

When the CFL returned to Ottawa they were not allowed to bring back the Rough Riders name (for obvious reasons). The organization basically decided to go with the Riders brand in every aspect except the name (colours, white R on a black helmet). Minnesota could've called themselves the Northern Lights, brought back green & yellow, and updated the N* logo if they wanted to.

Well, since the Wild have been a truly mediocre franchise from their inception and have nothing to really show for their first 20 years, I’d say it’d be fine to rebrand. 

 

The color scheme is nice and all, but it can work for a Northern Lights/Geminis/whatever name third. With that name and the potential of a rebrand, the Wild are essentially the Charlotte Bobcats of the NHL. It’s maybe even worse than the Bobcats!

Paging the NJD, who should go back to red/green/white or red/white/black/green, and you have solved your problems 😉

I don’t really think it’s fine to rebrand at this point... I mean people love the Wild here in Minnesota. They’ve definitely been mediocre for most of their history, but there’s still a lot of fun memories that the Wild have created. 
 

The Wild are not the bobcats of the NHL...

Pittsburgh nailed their RR jerseys. 

 

The Wild...here's a thought. They stay the Wild but keep the North Stars' colours? 
You can all keep saying "be the North Stars" but the team in Dallas isn't likely to let that happen for a few reasons. Nor would the NHL if we're being honest. 

 

So the Wild in North Stars colours is the closest you're gonna get.

Heck no. Did they win three cups in green? No.

 

The Devils just need to go back to the dynasty set. That’s it.

It can still be done. The Wild haven't accomplished a thing other than having the worst team name in major pro sports.

The State of Hockey deserves a lot better.

White helmets. Looks pretty good

 

The script is pretty good. It's a missed oppurtunity tho to bring back Robopen.

IMO the Northern Lights sounds way more cheesy than the Wild.

Atleast it’s a plural name and not ambiguous like “wild” which could literally mean anything.

This conversation has happened many times, but yeah I don't like the Wild name but it's not that bad. Again, so many suggestions of what people think would be better are often worse. This is a perfect example. Imagine calling your team the Northern Lights lol.

Because Northern Lights makes more sense and is more traditionally sounding for a big league sports franchise??
