Neo's 40 Team Alternate Universe NHL (Mighty Ducks of Orlando added)

Recommended Posts

After toying with the idea of a 40 team fictional hockey league, I've decided instead on doing my own 40 team NHL in an alternate universe.

 

The 1992-93 NHL alignment served as the starting point. As more teams are added, some existing teams will switch divisions if necessary.

 

Smythe:

Calgary Flames (Flames 2.0)

Edmonton Oilers

Los Angeles Kings

San Diego Gulls (1993-94)

San Jose Sharks

Vancouver Canucks

Colorado Cougars (1993-94)

 

Norris:

Chicago Blackhawks (Hawks 2.0)

Detroit Red Wings

Houston Aeros (1993-94)

Minnesota North Stars

St. Louis Blues

Toronto Maple Leafs

Winnipeg Jets

 

Adams:
Boston Bruins

Buffalo Sabres

Cleveland Barons (1993-94)

Hartford Whalers

Montreal Canadiens

Ottawa Senators

Quebec Nordiques

 

Patrick:
New Jersey Devils

New York Islanders

New York Rangers

Philadelphia Flyers

Pittsburgh Penguins

Tampa Bay Lightning

Washington Capitals

 

From there, teams will be added (or moved if need be). For the 16 expansion/relocation slots, here's what I'm thinking of.

Select four for the Smythe, four for the Norris and so on. You can shuffle teams to other divisions if necessary.

  • Anaheim
  • Atlanta
  • Baltimore
  • Charlotte
  • Cincinnati
  • Cleveland
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Hamilton
  • Hampton Roads
  • Houston
  • Indianapolis
  • Kansas City
  • Las Vegas
  • Miami
  • Milwaukee
  • Nashville
  • New Orleans
  • Oklahoma City
  • Orlando
  • Phoenix
  • Portland
  • Salt Lake City
  • San Diego
  • Saskatoon
  • Seattle

 

Now on to the concepts, we start with the Minnesota North Stars.

The shoulder patch, of course, is a re-purposed version of the Wild's State of Hockey logo with different colors.

Blue pants with green shirt feels like a no..... also, any third jerseys coming? I like where this is going.

Not in the 90s, it didn’t.

The shoulder patch is the old state map logo. Here's a closeup of the primary crest:

One thing you might want to adjust is the placement of the numbers on the sleeves. As you have them placed now, they'd be off-center. You should only be able to see half of the number on each sleeve.

Next, the Winnipeg Jets, based on the RCAF sweaters:

And a very slight Bolts tweak. The colors on the cloud and bolt on the home sweater are changed to see if it's more visible against the electric blue background:
