Hello Cincinnati

Dan Siegel proposes a new NHL franchise inspired by an old WHA franchise. How about a cross-state rival for the Columbus Blue Jackets? Check out the Cincinnati Stingers.

The WHA Collection

Dallas Kirkpatrick has something special for us today. He writes:

I've been working on a project for a while now, recreating WHA jerseys. I decided to create 14 sets in total. My idea is that this might be what the jerseys looked like if the league were rebooted today — and I've purposely left out Quebec, Hartford, Edmonton, and Winnipeg as I've already done multiple concepts for these teams
I used all original logos (or variations thereof), and have stayed pretty close to the original color schemes in most cases. While I want to be creative, I wanted them all to be believable and based on something from the past.  A few of these designs have bold or outlandish design traits that probably wouldn't be used in real life, but hey, it's the WHA.

WHA Resurrection, Part 3

Today wraps up Colin Magee's three-week series on the WHA. What if it were revived today? What would the teams and their jerseys look like?

Which of Colin's 15 designs has been your favorite?

Four for the WHA

A while back I ran a series from Nick Burton looking at what WHA teams might look like if they were still around today. Today we get another set, this time from Bastian Schmülling. Click on each concept to enlarge.

WHA Revival, Part 2

Nick Burton is reviving the WHA in a special series of concept posts. Part 2 kicks off with a classy new look for the Cincinnati Stingers. 

Those may be Miami Dolphins colors, but the San Diego Mariners' collegiate style really stands out.

And finally, here's what Nick thinks the Toronto Toros might look like if they'd survived to today.

Check back next Thursday for Part 3 of this four-part series.
