I do think it would look nicer if the hem stripe matched the "red on white on black" motif:

My eyes were coming to the same conclusion when watching the game. Good call!

It feels like the third jersey the New Jersey Devils would've worn in the early 2000's if Lou Lamoriello didn't hate alternate jerseys fun.

FTFY.

I'm very surprised to see people here not loving Chicago's reverse retro. I think it is a very nice uniform and I think it would be a decent third jersey.

Devils wearing the green RR's against the Islanders tonight should be a great matchup

I'd also like it with the current logo in the middle.

Problem is that what they have's exactly how the original white jersey looked, just with black and white flipped. Changing the hem striping is kinda antithetical to the whole point of the Reverse Retro idea.

Sharks went heritage jerseys in B2B games, I see. If nothing else, they score a boatload of goals when they dress like a real hockey team.

its just so bland.  Chicago has a great (best) uniform and this doesn't improve on it.  It could work for any of the red/black teams, nothing about it says Chicago.

The problem is that Chicago's covered pretty much all of the other bases in terms of throwback alternate designs. At some point of making new throwbacks, you reach the designs that aren't super-iconic.

 

And like, making a black version of their white jersey A.) has already been done and B.) wouldn't fit the Reverse Retro criteria. They were gonna have to dig deep eventually.

Oh for sure, not hating on them for it.  Just pointing out why its not getting a ton of love.

Clearly the Avs were distracted by the raw beauty of that San Jose sweater and forgot to play defense.

I was kind of hoping Chicago would've gone with the football style front numbers instead of the traditional crest.

How would you sell jerseys that are blank/not-customized?

 

Pretty sure that's the reason why they went with the logo on the front.

Yes, I'm aware that based on logistics it makes more sense to have a logo on the front, but it would just be something a little more unique for a team that has had 10 different jerseys in a little over a decade. USA Hockey had Buffalo Bills themed jerseys for the World Juniors. I'm not sure if they sold any that were blank.

Even though it looks awful, the CFL sells blank jerseys:

They could always go the cfb way and just do a generic number for replica uni's

Oh good, two Blackhawks sweaters that are significantly worse than their regular one.
