Yeah. But it's born out of a failed franchise with an amazing logo. 

Same with the Hurricanes. 

The problem for the Wings is they run a two color scheme and logo that's rarely been effed with. (which is also what makes their jerseys amazing)  Hard to go retro with this. Only the Leafs face the same challenge.

Yeah, which is why they should have dropped the winged wheel on this one and done something out of the old Cougars jerseys.

Yeah, it's not great. I wasn't a fan of the '17 Centennial Classic jerseys though until I seen them in person. I bought one of those, and it's one of my favorite jerseys... These are pretty f***ing blah though. Zero creativity.

Yeah. The Cougars approach would have been inspired thinking. 

Who actually decides? The league or the team/ownership?

Heck, if they wanted to get wild and mix up the retro look they could've added a dark purple(the octopus) as an accent color. Not sure how much I would have liked that but it atleast be fun. This is not fun.

I love them, clean look (with the red pants). The grey wont even be noticeable on the ice, though yeah what's up with grey?

For that nice dipped in concrete look. Skates like concrete. Mitts of concrete. Foundation of the team still unfinished with wet concrete.

I think they wanted to add a 3rd color and the light grey was the most neutral.

I never understood why people like Nordiques logo. An igloo with a hockey stick and puck. Zero creativity. The Fleur de Lis was a much better logo IMO.

It's camouflage ding dongs. Lowkey genius tier jerseys.

Its supposed to be a retro to the 98 team. That jersey is all Marty LaPointe.

It wasn't the logo.  It was the colors.  Unique shade of blue.  Yes, the logo was weird.  

To revert back to my boring responses of old, every team should just wear what they wore in 1993.
