being both a Cleveland Browns fan and a Carolina Hurricanes fan, i agree with you. that would be like having the Baltimore Ravens wear a Browns uni. i think it would be a direct slap to the fact of old Whaler fans. i would like to see a 3rd uni, maybe a black one with the Storm warning flag/hockey stick logo on it.
And kind of like how Balt Colts fans feel all the time seeing the same uniforms in Indy.
I'm hearing 3rd sweaters are fading from vogue among the league office, and third black sweaters are a dime a dozen.
Wondering - would Hartford hold the rights to an old New England Whalers sweater? I know its pretty similar.
yeah, i hear that the reason why because the new Reebok Templet for the Edge uni's. in a few years you will start to see them come back into favor. it would be a bad idea not to have alt. jerseys, it would only cause a decrease in jersey sales for them(dont need any more losses when it comes to NHL products)
