The Flaming Mooterus is best left to history, never to be spoken of or seen again. Urgh.

Wow, Adidas had to have a PR guy defend the TB jersey.

Still better than the old Dallas Mavs trash bag jerseys.

even tho I am a Leafs fan, really want that Montreal one.  Grew up as an Expos fan.

I need a new sweater anyhow.

Maybe I can have it say "Repeat" on the back.

Welp. I got Florida's wrong. I thought it was a golf club. I thought it hilarious they were embracing their likely early exit.

I don't care. It's still golfing and sunshine to me!

I knew the Colorado Rockies moved to NJ but didn't know they kept the color scheme for a bit.
I like NJ, or anyone who beats Detroit.

I hate the goat-head, but I wish the Sabres had kept the larger "angry red eye" in the new (old) jersey logo.

The Oilers jersey looks like someone threw an egg.

FTFA: One could argue the original Fishsticks jersey's Aquafresh palette and queasy waves are more in keeping with the Reverse Retro aesthetic.

Have I really not seen "queasy" spelled out before? I would have bet good money it was "qweezy" but I don't even get an alternate spelling for that one. Odd.

The red Screaming Eagle Reverse Retro from last season is so much better than the black Screaming Eagle Reverse Retro from this season, speaking as a Capitals fan.
(Still have a white sweater from that set in my closet from before it was "retro")

I don't really care for the robo penguin, although there isn't much variation in the sweater history of the team.

The Stars one is boring AF.

The ones that I'd buy, just style-wise, if jerseys weren't $200+:
Panthers
The rest of the Top 5
Canucks
MAYBE Caps (during that era the Caps had Olie Kolzig, who is kind of a local legend where he played junior hockey, which is my hometown - ONLY because of that; the jersey itself I don't like)
Rangers
Jets

Ones I would wear if given to me, 'cause I kinda dig 'em:
Detroit (it's a little soccer-y but if the sponsor logo was the city - if I cared more about Detroit as a city I'd love this)
Chicago (same although it's a lesser jersey...but I've actually been to Chicago and I like it)

Everything else: Nope, try again

I mean...q-u (since that always comes after a q) - easy. Just like it sounds.

Qweezy would be some shiatty brand name for something that tries to make you sick 'cause q-w is not a real combination.

Does Carolina's have a whale tail on it?

No?

BOOOOOOOOOO!

And Queezy was QEII's rapping name.

I absolutely loved the Bruins reverse retro set last year, the bright gold paired with a "classic" layout worked perfectly. Putting Pooh on a white sweater is doing the opposite. We get the "crazy" logo and striping on a traditional white set, and it just feels wrong. Maybe I'll change my tune when I see them in a game, I don't know.
 
2022-10-21 7:49:16 AM  
I'm just glad we finally get to relive the old glory days of the Golden Knights and Kraken!

alechemist: I don't really care for the robo penguin, although there isn't much variation in the sweater history of the team.


And I love the robo penguin. Would've liked something a little more out of left field, but yeah, you're right about the history. The yellow shoulders look a little too Bruins for me, but these aren't bad.
 
2022-10-21 8:32:26 AM  
They're all awful. Is Adidas trying to get out of their NHL contract by farking them up this bad? 🤔

The Pooh bear has returned!
The Bruins wore this logo 1995-2006 on a third sweater. The blog Stanley Cup of Chowder called it "the greatest jersey in Bruins history."


Hahahaha no - the Pooh Bear was probably their worst ever, except maybe for their 1940 gold jersey.

Wish I could track down an 80's era Caps jersey.

Now "qweezy" looks all wrong to me. WTF?

I like the look of the Wild jersey in North stars colors.
 
2022-10-21 2:57:45 PM  
I already own the NY Islanders Fisherman (teal makes that jersey work, this retro is ugly) and a 1970s Kings with the crown. Have two old throwback Maple Leafs jerseys too (a Grant Fuhr NHL 75th anniversary and the Reverse Retro).

If I can get a specific player, I'll get Vegas' jersey. Gimmicky? Yes. But it has that sleazy element Vegas jerseys have been missing -- we got the Strip and glitz of the town in their previous jerseys, but not the seedy motel or tacky Downtown look, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas vibe.

/obviously players don't stay in Vegas, at least in VGK's management decisions

If you're going specific player, Satan is the only way to go. Preferably a Devil's sweater. Somebody pissed off the hockey gods to keep that from happening. Would have been the #1 selling sweater of all time. Of. All. Time.

For the record, San Jose nailed it. That's awesome. Detroit did really well. Ducks did what they had to do - that was the only answer.

That one would've been great - the other one I always would've liked is in WHL hockey, we in Tri-Cities had a guy named Clayton Stoner. If he'd been traded to the Kamloops Blazers, that jersey would have been super popular.

As a jersey collector, my wallet is going to hate me.
