Very Red Wing esque.  

 
Oh wow, it's almost like that was the intent, Captain Obvious

But apart from that, those are very nice jerseys, Steel. Can’t wait to see the rest of them

Re: World Hockey Association: Redux

We head over to the east coast with one of the WHA's flagship franchises owned by its most ostentatious owner.

Harry Bloom named his team the Brooklyn Bulldogs. The name stems from an op-ed piece in the New York Times blasting Bloom's business practices and called him a “thuggish bulldog in an Armani suit.” Bloom of course took it as a badge of honor. He chose a simple black and white color scheme. The team will play their first season at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, New York, sharing the arena with the NHL's New York Rangers, until Bloom's new arena project in Brooklyn is constructed. MSG is a large arena and seats approximately 17,500 people for hockey games, making it decidedly the largest arena in the WHA. The Bulldogs will have a 1-year lease at MSG to begin play, making their future murky and placing high pressure on Bloom to build his new arena quickly.

Bloom chose a simple angled wordmark of BKLN to adorn the sweaters. The uniforms will have triple-striping on the sleeves, hem, and socks. The breezers will feature a simplified double stripe. A unique feature will be an arched NOB over bold serifed jersey numbers. The TV numbers will be positioned at the edges of the shoulders and the mandated league logo will flip to the upper left chest to make room for the team wordmark. According to a league source, the team color was supposed to be a dark navy to match the Yankees but Cooper being a Canadian company didn't know that and just went with an off black instead. Bloom was unhappy but decided to keep it in order to not hold up league play.


C&C always appreciated!

Re: World Hockey Association: Redux

So with Brooklyn putting the league logo on the left, do the Bulldogs squeeze the Captain's C on there with it?

Bloom was asked this question by a reporter and basically gave a non-answer so the assumption is he'll just squeeze it on there or come up with some kind of very Bloom type of way to carry the patch.

Re: World Hockey Association: Redux

Next we head to the Windy City where owner and league co-commissioner Elliott Randall owns a team.

Newly-elected WHA chief of operations Elliott Randall's franchise in Chicago will play their home games at the International Amphitheatre, which seats 9,000 for ice hockey. Randall chose to name them the Chicago Cougars and they will sport local colors of red, sky blue, and white. Randall believes the local success of the neighboring Black Hawks will only help build interest in the new team and rival league. He signed a 7-year lease with the Amphitheatre.

Randall helped design a logo which features a bold C with a wildcat in the negative space and enclosed in an eclipse. The home sweaters feature a red primary with curved northwestern striping on the hem and matching stripes on the sleeves and socks, along with a similarly styled shoulder yoke. The breezers are red with matching stripes. The away uniform is an inverted version along with an inverted logo colors. The number system is a thin wide serif. The TV numbers are flat with no borders.


C&C always appreciated! 

Next up: We head to the Golden State.

Re: World Hockey Association: Redux

I really like this set, the red and powder blue often seem poorly done for Chicago, and you did really well with it. Also, the Cougar Spoon in the logo is wonderful.

Re: World Hockey Association: Redux

I don't really like to root for Chicago teams but this one has to be my favorite. The colors are amazing and the cougar itself is really well done. Seems perfect for the time
