It's Friday so you came here fully prepared to be freaked out. Mission accomplished. Jody Willard puts it like this: "Here is a concept if the Wild were around in the '90s. [sic] Based on the [L.A. Kings] Burger King [third jersey] mixed with the Northern Lights."
Janik Beichler makes his debut on the Concepts page today with a Nordiques set. He writes:
Since the Nordiques would not be the only team from Quebec, the new color scheme is that of Quebec City, instead of the light blue of the province Quebec.
The ship in the logo is also that from the Quebec City flag. However, the fleur de lis is still included, which creates a combination between the historical team and the expansion franchise — similar to the Winnipeg Jets, who went with a new style and color scheme, while maintaining the name.
Janik also submitted this set which relies more heavily on the previous Nordiques logo. Do you have a preference?
The Canucks recently announced the spaghetti skate will skate again in the familiar black, red and yellow color scheme. Building on that idea, Taylor Roy removes the skate and reintroduces Johnny Canuck into the mix. I gotta say... I am a fan.
I've said it before but I'm not sure Bastian Schmülling is capable of creating a bad concept. His take on the Florida Panthers is another gem. It's the way he designs jerseys that are modern yet somehow still traditional that gets me. Would you agree?
As we await the official unveiling of the Anaheim Ducks' new orange third jersey, Steven Grant wonders what it might look like with the primary logo and some throwback style striping.
