What Do You Think of This Sharks Reverse Retro Jersey Design?

Let’s take a day off from San Jose Sharks GM speculation – things have gone very quiet on that front.

Instead, let’s have some fun: What will the Sharks’ Reverse Retro jersey look like next year?

In 2020-21, the NHL debuted Reverse Retro jerseys. This series, brought to you by adidas, celebrated and re-mixed classic jerseys from every NHL city’s past.

The San Jose Sharks chose to hearken back to their 1998-99 kit:

So what are the Sharks thinking next year?

There hasn’t been much credible chatter on that front, but I wanted to share a fan design that I thought was terrific.

Boyan Demchuk of The Win Column recently mocked 2022-23 Reverse Retro jerseys for the Pacific Division. This is what he came up with for the San Jose Sharks:

“The Sharks have lately leaned into their original ‘90s branding, so I chose to take that cue and merge their original home and away jerseys with their modern-day Stealth jerseys to apply a new take on a vintage look,” Demchuk wrote.

Personally, I love Demchuk’s bold, neon sign re-mix of the original Sharks’ logo.

Another worthy idea: Could the San Jose Sharks finally make a long-awaited nod to their Bay Area forerunners, the California Seals?

We’ll talk more Reverse Retro after the Draft and free agency – and hopefully, San Jose will have a new GM by then!

I like it better than the last one.

Just no.

it’s not so bad, but there’s something about the logo that bothers me. it needs that splash of orange on the stick i think.

It definitely needs orange tape on the stick, a stick colored stick, a puck on the the stick, I just hope the next one is no worse than this I’d buy this but some of the recent ones have been bad. I’d also like them to change the orange to red because dammit, there should be blood in the water, plus red and teal isn’t a bad combo

Are we completely out of ideas other than more douchy black jerseys? Black is great if you love teams like the Kings, Ducks or the Knights.
No more stinking, rotten, black thirds. Enough!
