I guess 126 concepts was worth it after all.
The 'bible' of all things hockey, The Hockey News, recently published a 'Lists' edition and in it they listed the top 5 jerseys in the league. As you see here, the Stars 'victory green' home uni made the cut.
This will come as no surprise to most Stars fans who swaddled AAC in green ever since the franchise made the bold change.
I was privileged to be in the new jersey meetings, from Tom Gaglardi's original vision (His very first directive: create a jersey and logo that can proudly stand next to the NHL's classic uniforms. Bold statement. Big challenge.) right through the final OK and every passionate debate and failed jersey prototype in between, and I can tell you this: What Tom wanted to create, Tom eventually got. The home jersey inclusion in THN is validation of that.
So, looks like a 'Mission Accomplished' banner needs to be hung next to that whiteboard in the Stars offices in Frisco where the new uniform was spitballed, sketched, and incubated.
