Yeah I'm not a big fan. Don't really care for that logo but I guess the Leafs are already basically using the retro logo that I do like so I get why they wanted to go for a different one.

Then again it feels like 90% of these reverse retro jerseys blow so at least the Leafs don't have the worst one.

I get doing this to try and sell some merch but that is one of my absolute least favourite Leafs' looks.

Meh. It's not terrible, but it's not good, either. So, compared to some, I guess that's a win?

These are probably the only good ones:





I copy and pasted 5 img codes before going through the logos and picking the good ones and I couldn't even use them all.

I like the Devils one but then some like the Islanders, Oilers and Sharks are just the jerseys they wear now more or less.

It's weird, some teams went and got weird with it and others like the Penguins are just wearing old jerseys of theirs.

These are the worst ones:







Anaheim's could have been amazing if they just used their classic ducks logo. What a failure.

The other ones were very clearly thrown together 3 hours ago.

I meant to add Montreal's to the bad column:



It's especially strange that all the original 6 ones are particularly lackluster. Toronto's is really the only one that leaned into the retro angle it seems. I guess in a way a lot of teams used up their best vintage-style jersey designs for the outdoor games.

terrible look, how bland... Argos also unveiled their updated Boat logo. At least they want back to the boat!! I hated those shields with the A.

A lot teams definitely went with a safer choice, barely modifying their existing jerseys.

Graphic design department is laid off.
