Last but certainly not least, we present the Power Rankings of the Metropolitan Division NHL Retro Reverse jerseys.
Back on Monday, the NHL dropped all 31 of their retro reverse jerseys for this coming NHL season, whenever and whatever it’s going to be. Today we are going to take a look at the Metropolitan Division, ranging from Lady Liberty to the Whalers, a lot of these jerseys are colorful, creative and, well, some are just plain bland.
Let’s delve right in…
New York Islanders
If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it is when a jersey is boring, and that’s exactly what these Islanders jerseys are. They had the option of going back to the iconic Fisherman jerseys of the mid-90s – admit it, Islanders fans, you would have wanted to see it back.

But, instead, they went with the navy blue of the early 2000s. This is basically a navy blue of their current design. A couple of these next jerseys may seem Gotti but at least they tried, this is basically a copy and paste and a slight alteration of somebody else’s homework.
Columbus Blue Jackets
I understand they wanted to go back to when they debuted in the league. While they could have had the option to go neon green, remember when they wore neon-green for their All-Star jerseys? They decided to incorporate red into their jerseys and I ask why? What about the Columbus Blue Jackets scream you know what? We need a red jersey!

Well I could have forgiven this jersey for going completely red, maybe with some white striping.
I can’t get over that white striping that goes from arm to arm and over the shoulder. Thank God this is only going to be a one-year one-off, because these do not deserve to come back.
