It not the logo so much probably...   I think it may be the fact that the team is paying an homage to the team of yesteryear.  It actually plays on sentimentality and emotions, more than just a good logo or design.   The fact that the teams are now defunct adds to the sentimentality....   like remembering a friend from long ago.

I would’ve liked to see the Canucks go with the lumberjack and/or the hockey stick rink logo.  That’s not a great logo...   but now it has history and sentimentalism wrapped up in it.

I like the Wild 3rd uniform, but it’s exactly the same as their normal uniforms, with bad logo,  but with the Minnesota North Stars colours.


Ya gotta love the Michigan Stags’ uniform though, no?

Michigan Stags ... one of the better ones.  I knew a guy who played for the Chicago Cougars



Did you know there was once a 'Battle of Missouri ?' ie. TWO NHL teams in Missouri at the same time ?  And one ended up in NJ ?

Also some of those WHA teams bounced around a ton.   The current Colorado Avalanche used to be the San Francisco Sharks.

Connor McDavid might be the best hockey player in the world, but Leon Draisaitl has been an absolute caveman for the Oilers so far this season. He's leading the league in goals and points, second in assists (1 behind McDavid and Nugent-Hopkins), leads the league in plus-minus, and leads all forwards in ice-time per game. He is also the Oilers' top faceoff man.  McDavid has the insane speed and incredible skill level, but Draisaitl has size and strength and can protect the puck better than almost anybody in hockey.  They are like an exotic sports car and a turbo-diesel truck... built for different situations, but both excellent at what they do.

How is your favorite hockey team doing? What has caught your eye so far this season?

Canucks have been poor so far. 

The last 2 or 3 games have been better.  They’ve played ok, but not been rewarded with wins. But, if they carry on like this, the wins will come.

Goaltending has been stellar.

Going to be weird watching these guys trade Art Ross, Rocket and Hart trophies off for the next 10 years and still not win a Cup because the league refuses to call the rulebook in the playoffs.

Sort of….  The Sharks never actually played in the WHA…. They went defunct before they ever played and the franchise was then given to Quebec City (Nordiques). 

The Sharks didn’t bounce around…. They never played at all.

The Avs do have the best “retro jersey” in the NHL, paying tribute to the Nordiques (and not the San Francisco Sharks).
