Ranking the 2022-23 NHL Reverse Retro jerseys from worst to best

The NHL and Adidas revealed the Reverse Retros 2.0 on Wednesday and let’s just say they look a lot better than the first series of jerseys.
Don’t get me wrong, there were a bunch from the first batch that looked good, like LA, Anaheim, and even Arizona. But aside from that, I didn’t find many of the jerseys appealing.
This year, I would say 95% of the Reverse Retros are something I’d be okay with wearing in public.
Yeah, the first editions were that bad.
One of my favourite things to do when a long list of jerseys come out is to rank them from worst to best. And yes, that’s what I’m going to be doing right now. So, warm up your coffee, get your popcorn for breakfast, and let’s rate rank these jerseys!
32nd – Chicago Blackhawks

This is the worst. It’s boring. There are both thin and wide stripes which I, personally, hate. And it just says “Chicago.” They should try again.
31st – Detroit Red Wings

Detroit has pretty much the same jersey as Chicago. It’s just the stripes are in different places. Again, boring.
30th – Philadelphia Flyers

First of all, I’m not a fan of the sleeves on this jersey. It goes from black to white in an awkward place along the arm. Aside from that, it’s just plain as can be. It’s like Adidas and the NHL forgot to add spice to the jersey.
29th – Pittsburgh Penguins

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of history behind this Penguins logo. But for some reason, I’m just not a fan of it. Pittsburgh has had too many black, white, and gold jerseys. They need to change things up a little bit.
28th – Seattle Kraken

I love the colours, however, I hate how there’s all different types of stripes, especially along the bottom of the jersey. It’s so difficult for Seattle to make something because of how new they are to the league. They’re placed in 28th because of that, unfortunately.
27th – Carolina Hurricanes

This is literally Carolina’s road jerseys, but reversed. It’s just reverse and they forgot the retro. In all seriousness, I think Adidas, the NHL, and the Hurricanes could’ve gotten a little bit more creative. Because again, it’s pretty much their away jersey but reversed.
26th – New York Rangers

I’m a huge fan of this jersey. It gives me flashbacks to Marek Malik’s between the legs shootout goal against the Washin …
