The Hurricanes’ new Whalers throwbacks are weird, right?

This afternoon, the Carolina Hurricanes revealed their newest sweater – a throwback to the Hartford Whalers, who were the team’s previous incarnation before moving south in 1997. It’s a nice looking sweater, that has the iconic, negative space-mindful crest laid out on the green that the team wore throughout the 1970s and 1980s. It’s not my favourite era of the Whalers look (I loved the 90s Navy Blue), but it’s still iconic to a generation of fans, and from a design standpoint, still very nice.

But it’s weird, right?
