Oh sh!t, I also never caught that.

Those jerseys weren't bad, but do feel very 90s now.  Was kind of weird how the Sabres completely dumped their previous color scheme in that redesign...towards the end of the 90s into the 00s, there was definitely a lot of red-and-blacks (Devils, Blackhawks, Hurricanes, Sabres, Sens, and the Flames eventually had a third jersey that was primarily red and black).

And man were there some scary jerseys back then...oh my these thirds:

Those Lightning "Storm" jerseys and the Coyotes "Desert" jerseys are now pretty collectible, especially the Storm ones.  Same goes for the Burger King and the Wild Wing.

Best specialty jerseys that came out in the late 90's was in 96-97 when the Leafs wore a throwback "barberpole" style jersey complete without nameplates.  They only wore it for I think only 2 games.

I fvcking adore those horrible jerseys. I don't like "bad" jerseys that are unironically bad; like the buffaslug or those hideous rags that the Rangers wear  But truly BAD jerseys, so bad they're amazing? I love them. 

The Mooterus is one of my all time favorites. The Mighty Ducks jersey that just looked like a disney action figure. The LA kings jersey with the weird burger king on the shoulder. Fishsticks is of course a classic. There was that canucks jersey that just looked like robot sperm. The blues trumpet jerseys are still the best of all time. absolute beauties.

I don't mind the outlined yoke nor the sleeve stripes on the 'Canes thirds, but the crest looks too much like a "B" to me.

The outline of the state of NC in between the two flags is a nice touch.

I'll put this in my list of "things I'd never be able to catch even if given 3 hours".

super nifty.

Right? I was even looking for some clever outline or use of negative space and I did not see that.

Granted it also took me years until I noticed the H in the Hartford Whalers logo.

I only noticed a year or two ago the Wild logo is an animal head. I thought it was just a forest with a river and stars....

And the Devils logo has horns and a tail, but it’s ACTUALLY the letters NJ!!!!

Not only you for sure.  Having a home in NC for close to 17 years now and the jersey shore for 8:

  • no clue what hurricane flags were ( and you needed two of them)
  • would of never looked close enough to recognized the state outline because the design itself is terrible imo
  • very happy they are not my favorite team's jersey.

Ive seen them on the beaches before here on li, granted was only a handful of times. I actually think the logo looks OK, but the black jerseys look horrible, and with the logo not being straight there's too much extra black area on the front of the jersey.

I think if most state outlines (or provinces in canada) were on jerseys they would look pretty bad.

Which is why I wouldn't mind outline of NJ incorperated somehow on jerseys, as long as it doesn't look like GS parkway signage.

Which took me years to realize lol.  There are a ton of hidden things in a lot of logos, especially corporate ones.

Yup, just like the big d*ck in the old 90's Rangers jerseys. 

Oh my bad, that was just Mark Messier.

Mind. fvckingblown.  Looking at it, it seems like that was probably done on purpose, I guess....but...is that not just the combination of an X being next to the letter E?
