Reverse Retro Jersey Insult
— EPISODE 46 —
Last week the NHL and Adidas introduced Reverse Retro jerseys for all 31 NHL teams. Many were amazing, and many were hideous. Then there were two. Although the Colorado Avalanche and Carolina Hurricanes jerseys were amazing, they were also very controversial in my opinion. Colorado’s was a mix of Quebec Nordiques logos and Avalanche colors. It was very good looking. The Carolina Hurricanes was a grey version of the Hartford Whalers jerseys of years ago. It was amazing, but there was absolutely zero representation of the Hurricanes. Which sounds fine but what if you are a Hartford Whalers fan, or for that matter a Quebec Nordiques fan that still misses their home team. Is this an insult? In my mind it is.
Brad Burud the owner/editor of the Inside Edge Hockey News. I am a huge fan of hockey, from youth hockey, to junior hockey, and of course professional hockey. I have played, coached, worked as statistician, and watched hockey all of my life. Hockey is not just a game, it is a lifestyle and family. The game of hockey is great! It can bring you nights of great enjoyment. It also brings nights where you feel like your team will never win. I am proud to be a journalist for the greatest game in the world. I have a degree in Business Administration, Psychology from Minot State University. I also have a Hockey General Manager and Scouting, and Sports Communications/Journalism degree from Sports Management Worldwide. I am also a member of the Sports Executives Association. Most of all I am a fan. Hockey is a huge part of my life and my families life.
