The Winnipeg Jets may have one other new jersey. All NHL groups may have a brand new jersey each time video games return with the reverse retro jerseys. We have no idea a lot about them, however know that primarily based on the beforehand launched colors, we is not going to be getting a tribute to the Jets previous which lies within the Atlanta Thrashers.
The Jets and the Trashers are linked. Prefer it or not the Jets historical past lies in Atlanta and they need to begin embracing that. As a substitute of going again to the previous Jets (now Arizona Coyotes), they need to embrace their southern roots and begin to give us the enduring powder blue or maroon jerseys. Not as a result of they’re fairly, however as a result of they characterize the current historical past of the crew. The crew that gave us Blake Wheeler, Tobias Enstrom, Andrew Ladd, Dustin Byfuglien, and extra. That crew is value celebrating. As a substitute they’re shoved off right into a again closet and never let loose. It has been 9 years. The Thrashers need to be revered for his or her function within the Jets historical past.
