The Devils have multiple young players that I could see as captain material (just hypothetically - - obviously we have Nico), Jack, Ty, Mercer…

Honestly I have no fvcking clue what they look for in a captain, but I’m certain we aren’t privy to about 90% of it.

Speaking of jerseys- I have heard nothing about the Reverse Retros making a return. That would be disappointing, as I really like them. 

Doesn’t sound like that will be the case.

I’m just going off guys that were captains or alternate captains on their prior teams. So there’s at least some precedent there.

From what Meigray has told me and other teams/dealers have been telling other game worn collectors, the RR program was indeed a one-season thing.

However, there is a rumor that the NHL is eyeing another either RR or other league-wide alternate scheme for the 22-23 season.  It also doesn't stop teams from making their RR their alternate as well.

Let’s really fvck with people and every team’s jersey has to be done in the color of their biggest rival.

I forgot which one, but one of the more popular/larger IG hockey accounts floated that a few days ago.  They showed mockups of Canadiens jerseys in Leafs colors and vice-versa.

I think it will be either another RR but with different designs or something like a "color rush" theme.

That’s insane from both sides. A 21 year old kid complaining about the AHL and an organization not trying to smooth things over a bit. Unless this has been an ongoing issue with him, then that makes more sense.

very much ongoing.  He  refused to report to Hartford last season and ran back to the KHL wasn't even sure he wanted to come back over after his KHL season ended to play for the rags JD had to give him a handy.  He pretty much got f*cked this year imo because they didn't want to expose  Gauthier who blows and Hunt who is nowhere as good on waivers. But he's a talented kid who's a huge headcase so I would pass too. This act isn't a one time thing on his part but it's a massive mishandling of an asset on the rags part.
