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.
