With Calgary, Ottawa and previously Washington, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Anaheim, Buffalo, Winnipeg, Arizona (as alternate jerseys) going back to their original color scheme/design, I'm wondering if the Stars will once have a throwback jersey. I don't think that will happen though.

That's really bad ass.

I wish they would wear those. I always wanted Dallas to try a D star version of the North Star jerseys and the rumor was that Nieuwendyk was going to do this until the rebranding happened and then it was scrapped.

It would be cool to see the Stars and Wild play with the Wild wearing those and the Stars wearing their original Dallas jerseys from 93.

Ok new rule. The number of new jerseys can no longer exceed the number of new seasons.

That's very much how the ECHL type leagues play. They play three or four in a row then have several days off before the next series. They do it to maximize weekend ticket sales and reduce travel costs.

Back during the 2004-05 lockout, Ralph Strangis came up with the idea that the NHL should try to mimic baseball with series of games between divisional opponents. The point was that it would create more rivalries and bring some of that playoff intensity. I think he brought the idea to Jim Lites but it never went anywhere with the league.

Why not, at that point we might be open to everything trending to a 2021 season as normal as possible. That being said, I'm still not a big fan of looking to create rivalries artificially through schedule, media and ads. Rivalries are created by themselves, with several playoffs meetings having their own circumstances and animosity. Too much rivalry kills the rivalry.

Even nowadays, games between Montréal and Boston became dull, like any random games, without any trash-talk, insults, abuses, intimidation and fights on and off the ice. Boring in fact.

It's finally happening.

I love it. The divorce is complete and custody has been decided. We can finally just be the Dallas Stars.

It looks like the early jersey from the 60's/70's.

Interesting.
