    Wow these range from really sharp to absolutely hideous, with everything in-between.

    Bruins fall in the in-between, but I like em. I suspect I’ll appreciate them much more in-person.

    I believe the silver striping for the Wings is because they won the Cup the year they're throwing back to.

    Isles swapped navy for royal because Lou Lamoriello hates alternate jerseys.

    Some teams had a challenge because if they simply did a color swap on an existing throwback, it would just be the home or away version of that same throwback.

    Bruins is an inversion of the white home jersey from 1990.

    Black becomes white; hence the white cuffs.

    But then technically the collar should be white as well.

    Should have just gone w/ black cuffs.

    I like them. I would say I like around 50% of the jerseys. Doesn't even seem some teams tried.

    I might get both the Bruins & the Whalers depending on the cost of course.

    Adidas did a very good job for the most part.

    Yeah, a couple of these are really horrible. Luckily the Bruins made out pretty well. Not a huge fan of the white cuffs but I think it’ll look nice on the ice in full gear and pads.

    There are also a couple of absolutely stunning ones. Its pretty rare for the novelty jerseys they do for the winter classic, all star game, etc. to be even passable so kudos to them. I’m a sucker for the Nordiques old logo and jersey. So clean...

    arguably the best alternate jersey since the 2010 Classic

    Minny, Columbus and Florida need to adopt theirs as their actual jerseys.

    I definitely want a Bergy one.

    I 'm not really worried about the white sleeves. I wash my jerseys after every game I go to and even if I wear them at home, I do not eat while wearing them especially the lighter ones I own.

    Because the cuffs were black on the jersey it's swapped with; the 1990 home whites.

    I really like the Bruins jersey, many of them are great, a few are gross but overall I like the idea.

    Plus the Whalers and Nordiques are outstanding, from the nostalgic point of view.

    I feel like the Islanders missed the opportunity to bring back the fisherman.

    Dallas and Anaheim are atrocious.

    Were the Sabres going with the decorative butter knife look?

    My faves are:

    Bruins
    Flames
    Jets
    Carolina
    Colorado
    Devils
    Washington

    Arizona blew it not putting the full kachina doll on it instead of just the head.

    Full kachina on that jersey would've been amazing

    The majority of these are really sharp.

    Definitely getting the B's.

    Really like Colorado, the Whale, NYR, Pittsburgh, and Minnesota, but there's only a few I dislike.

    I watched that 30 for 30 about 6 years ago, having been a bit too young at the time to understand (or even care) about the Spano story when it happened. Pretty crazy that it got as far as it did.

    Was really hoping the Sabres would go with the Miro Satan-era Buffalo-head jerseys but I think their's still look sharp

    What amused me was Fleet Bank had a reputation for not being an easy place to get even a car loan yet gave Spano EIGHTY MILLION.

    Banker in Spano Deal Quits (Published 1997)

    Fleet contacted Jacobs who assured the bank that Spano had been vetted by the NHL and Bettman admitted the league did not do due diligence as everyone assumed he had been vetted.
