A Deeper Look into the Adidas Reverse Retro Jersey: Colorado Avalanche
This will be a series where I do a post on each team with where the jersey inspiration came from, what they did, what they could have done better, and how it fits eventually with the full set of pants, socks, helmet, gloves, etc… Colorado Avalanche (1979): A true mashup of old and new, this design features the Quebec Nordiques igloo logo with fleur-de-lis in Avalanche maroon. The white jersey is a nod to the Northern Nordiques and snowy Rocky Mountains. Reveal: Inspiration: What they could have done differently:

Adidas Reverse Retro Jerseys Ranked!
Anaheim Ducks – Jersey porn right here! Los Angeles Kings – Colors are so gorgeous. Well done. Buffalo Sabres – Colors are on point. If they did the goat head as the main logo, it would be a top 10 jersey of all time IMO. Get rid of “Buffalo” and the gray stripe on the bottom too. Colorado Avalanche – Very simple and paying respect to the Nordiques. St Louis Blues – An exact reverse retro for them. Well done! Edmonton Oilers – The orange pops so well. Very nice without getting crazy. Minnesota WIld – Colors are sooooo nice. North Stars logo would have been perfect, but I udnerstand…

He was missing Rantanen for a large chunk of the season and played serious time with guys like Donskoi, Calvert, and Burakovsky on his line. No surprise these guys all had career years, at least on pace for. Thanks Covid. Connor McDavid – Easily the most valuable player on his team still and it isn’t even close IMO. One on one, hands down the scariest player in the world still. Completing his game in the faceoff department, a slapshot/one-timer, and remotely show up on the defensive end and he’s in…
