Morning Free Association: New Jerseys, Retro Remix

Embed from Getty Images

As we saw last week, NHL teams are debuting a new look sweater this year called the Retro Remix. For what I’ve seen, every team is doing that, even teams that don’t have a past per se like the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Bruins gave an official teaser this weekend.

As Icethetics points out in their preview article, while the inside of the collar says “90” referring to the 1990 season, it’s weird because the Bruins didn’t change their jersey between 1977-1995. So the “90” is an arbitrary year.

In this remix, it seems like they based it upon the home whites just swapping out the white with gold, the gold with black, and the black with white. And of course, it wouldn’t be the uniform of the mid-70’s to mid-90’s without having a healthy dose of Meth Bear.

These new uniforms drop later today on social media.

I too, want a jersey that gives me nightmares when I watch my own team play.

I stopped listening to one radio station when they described a record as being from “way back in 2006”.

“Eff off mate, it’s not that long ago!”

Morning all,

Wonder why they picked 1990.

I keep thinking it’s Tuesday. Probably because I had to use my alarm yesterday, and that’s usually only a weekday thing. Ah well.

1990 does seem kind of arbitrary.
I mean, yes, it’s a nice round 30 years ago, but why not 1980? It’s more retro and I think there were the same number of teams. 1970 makes more sense at 50 years back, but there being only like 14 teams then does confuse things. (Go, Golden Seals!)

Maybe they wanted to ride the weird wave of nostalgia for the Nords & Whalers?
