I'm with you. It's like they asked "how can we make our uniforms aesthetically jarring?"

-Nonsense shoulder/arm lines
-Contrasting namebar plates
-White Cs & As for both sets

Mission accomplished.

Reverse Blasty sounds like something that should be in the Urban Dictionary but I'm hesitant to check.

The Penguins and Flyers already have retro based jerseys. Both franchises only came about in the late 60s, and the current jerseys are pretty close to those. Given them word marks to make their jerseys look old timey is dumb. Those teams didn't exist in that old time.

If they want to go off the board with a retro jersey, they should make a tribute to a previous franchise in those cities, like the Pirates or Quakers. Would actually add to the rivalry, as the Pirates were moved from Pittsburgh to Philly to become the Quakers.

Reverse retro? So they’ve taken a an older jersey but with the colours swapped? What marketing genius thought this one up?

The Penguins and Flyers templates they picked from the 90s and 00s are just the worst. A new coat of paint does not help. I guess this means the Flames are getting a red or white Blasty jersey. Yay?

It's basically their 80s-90s jerseys with the black and white swapped on the shoulders and sleeves.

These jerseys are going to be one ofís worn only 1-2 times this season. Iím all for teams having some fun with it.

Apparently every team will have one, including Vegas.

The NHL/Adidas is following the steps of the NBA/Nike in having lots of new jerseys per season. Some callbacks to previous looks, and others more experimental. I'm all for it. League should make a lot of money from this.

Want to go full reverse retro? give the Flames a gold jersey.

Spoiler!

A gold or yellow Flames jersey is never going to happen (at least, not with this current design/marketing team).

I like the Penguins one. The Flyers, not so much.

And regarding a white Blasty, no. Either bring back the black jersey exactly as it was or not at all.

Made a mock-up of what a potential white reverse retro could look like

I think I like these more than the blacks actually. Will look good on the times they wear it on the road, and maybe a game or two at home.

I believe the Flames' new "special event" fourth jersey will be revealed in a couple weeks, along with the rest of the league.

It's different, I like it. Although I never hated the horse head as much as a lot of other fans did.
